Motor starters are needed to switch motors on and off. They are also used to reverse and protect against overload and undervoltage. Motor starters are manufactured for different power classes and with different functions. On the one hand motor starters are available as direct starters or reversing starters, also as compact starters, and on the other hand as soft starters. The soft starters allow soft and low-noise start-up and run-down of three-phase drives. This leads to a limited inrush current and guided motor stop so that abrupt movements can be avoided. Compact starters are a useful combination of circuit breaker, contactor and electronic overload relay. They are available as direct or reversing starter.

All kinds of motor starters are mounted in control cabinets in direct proximity to the drive.
