Solid state starter

Protect your investment

Conventional elevator motor starters might cause power surges, or “spikes,” in your building’s electrical feeders that can damage your equipment. With Otis solid state starters, built-in phase loss detection protects the motor, reducing the risk of elevator system’s impact on electrical equipment in your building.
