Motor control devices encompass simple manual controllers, motor contactors and starters, drives and soft starters. For every motor, some form of electrical control is required, from simple ON/OFF to more complex variable speed applications.
WDP series definite purpose contactors are designed to provide compact load control. These reliable control components are available up to 60 amp capacity and in 1- or 3-phase configurations at coil voltages from 24 to 480VAC.

VFDs - Variable Frequency Drives (1/4 hp to 100 hp)
AutomationDirect carries a range of AC variable frequency drives (VFD) for motor speed control and other industrial control applications. The high quality and low prices make our GS1 series mini AC drives and GS2 series micro variable speed drives an incredible deal. The DURApulse (GS3 series) sensorless vector AC drives can handle applications from 1 horsepower up to 100 horsepower.
STELLAR® SR22, SR33 and SR55 series semi-conductor solid state soft starters provide many advantages when used instead of electro-mechanical contactors to control 3-phase AC induction motors.
