GE offers multiple lines of solid state motor starters to meet the need of the most demanding applications.
GE’s ASTAT®-SD is a small, compact, solid state reduced voltage (SSRV) GE starter ranging from 5-25 horsepower at 460 volts. The GE SD offers the user greater economy without sacrificing the flexibility and capability of the soft starter.
GE’s ASTAT®-IBP Plus is a solid state reduced voltage starter which offers an integral bypass function. This GE line offers a fully rated bypass contactor completely wired and integrated with the SCRs to reduce size, installation time and offer flexibility. This line of SSRV has been enhanced with many new features for even greater application flexibility including monitoring, new enhanced pump control algorithm, new protective features and communications capability.
The GE ASTAT®-IBP Plus has 2 programmable inputs and 2 programmable outputs. Ratings are available from 40-300 hp at 460 volts and 70-375 hp at 575 volts.
The GE ASTAT®-CD Plus is the most flexible of the GE ASTAT® lines of SSRV starters. It is available from 7 1/2 hp to 1000 hp at 460 volts.
The GE ASTAT®-CD Plus has been enhanced with many of the same new features as found in the GE ASTAT®-IBP Plus. It offers DC injection breaking, slow speed (7 and 14%), reverse slow speed, energy savings, retry and 3 programmable outputs.

A reduced voltage starter reduces inrush line current and/or starting torque to a polyphase squirrel-cage induction motor. This is done by either reducing voltage applied to the motor during starting or by using only part of the motor windings during starting. GE can supply the three popular types of reduced voltage starters, each designed for specific applications requiring this type starting autotransformer, wye-delta and part-winding starters.
