eMotors Direct’s stock of magnetic starters are designed to start electric motors with a significant starting load. Essentially, they are magnetic switches. When turned on, the contactor electromagnet is energized, engaging the switch and allowing a self-sustaining current to flow to the motor. Magnetic starters also allow for under-voltage and overload protection; power is cut-off from the motor when power failure is detected. These devices are put to best use when applied to situations where equipment draws significant horsepower.
Our magnetic starter category covers a large selection of electric motor starters by top brand WEG. They are used across various industries like aggregate, fabrication, HVAC, mining, and more. Choose from the available single-phase or three-phase power input configurations and horsepower abilities ranging from fractional up to 75 HP.
