  COST BENEFIT

“Soft starting” a motor has some benefits, but energy conservation isn’t one of them.

Soft starting, or reducing the current of the power supply during motor acceleration, lessens mechanical shock to equipment. It can also prevent a severe voltage dip when the motor starts. In spite of the claims by starter suppliers, soft starting does not result in reduced energy costs.
