  • Soft Start on an Induction Motor for Table Saws

    Has anyone ever heard of a soft starting induction table saw motor? Is there a benefit to this feature?

    Re: Soft Start on an Induction Motor for Table Saws

    I haven't heard of it, and wonder if it's possible as I'm of the impression that "induction motors" are not variable speed and thus wouldn't be able to start slowly... except perhaps that larger loads (like on bigger compressors) actually sound like they are starting slow, as the motor torques up and overcomes the load.

      i would think you would have to have a 3 phase motor and some sort of frequency drive to soft start on single phase voltage.
