HITRAN's MSAT Series is recommended for AC Motor applications that require reduced voltage starting. It is designed for use with either magnetic or manually operated motor controllers.


The MSAT's primary function is to limit in-rush current and starting torque in AC Motors under starting or locked rotor conditions. This eliminates the problems associated with line voltage drop, resulting from high in-rush currents.

Motor Starting Auto Transformers are designed to meet NEMA ICS2-214 Medium Duty service. This includes motor applications for driving fans, pumps, compressors, line shafts, etc. Note that these standards are for applications where the windings are in the circuit only during starting.
