Building a New Electric World

Altistart 48
A new range for even better performance...
Today’s user expects soft starts to do more than start and stop a motor. The Altistart 48
soft start offers improved performance, provides advanced motor protection, and
communicates within automated facilities. It is suitable for a wide array of applications,
and offers a patented Torque Control System (TCS)*.
At the heart of your applications,
the new Altistart 48 soft start-soft stop unit
gives you:
High performance with its exclusive concept* for perfectly
controlled starting and deceleration,
Protection at all level,
Easy integration in enclosures and control systems.

...and so simple
Take the strain off your motors, your machines
and your operating budgets

The new generation of Altistart 48 starters has been designed to

continually improve the operation of your machines:
By reducing mechanical or hydraulic stress,
By reducing stress on the electrical distribution system (voltage
peaks, overcurrent),
By limiting energy loss and temperature rise.

Wire it, connect...

and start
Factory set, the Altistart 48 is operational immediately.

Better control of hydraulic transients:
• Gradual pressurization of fluid in lines.
• Reduction of pressure surges and valve surges (in presence of
line supply).
• Elimination of damage to filters or spouts (irrigation)
and premature wear of lines.
• Less stress on pipes with the reduction of pressure-over-
pressure phenomena.
Independent adjustment of the load conditions.
Protection against underload (running dry), loss or inversion
of phases and in the event of a locked rotor.
