The SmartStart is a unique device that smoothes out startup power demand instead of spiking it, reducing amp requirements by up to 65%. The technology uses dynamic feedback control to reduce the inrush of current by starting the compressor motor slowly. No other soft starter in the industry provides better performance.
SmartStart Key Benefits:
- Reduces strain on the power source.
- Reduces brown-out effects at compressor startup.
- May enable an inverter to power the A/C.
- May eliminate the need to upgrade your generator.
- Small, lightweight, and inexpensive.
The SmartStart is available as an accessory to Cruisair, Marine Air, and Dometic marine air conditioning systems. Use the Useful Links at right for more SmartStart info.
Actual customer testimonial:
"The generator's control circuit would trip and stop the generator due to the inrush of the Emiko's heat pump. The SmartStart reduced that inrush of current so the generator would continue to run. We started with an inrush of 77 amps and finished with an inrush of only 20 amps. [The SmartStart] is a great solution to our problem."
