starters and functions
Following our tech insight articles from February about the alternator (click here to read Part 1 and Part 2) we will now take a deep dive into starters. What exactly are starters and what functions do they perform in a motor? We also take a look at different types of starters and how they are applied in various industries.
Manual starters are more often used for smaller motors, since they do allow for an immediate continuation of operation when the power is restored. This is incredibly dangerous for heavier machinery, where a sudden restart can be hazardous for both equipment and the personnel operating it.
Prestolite hand hydraulic systems: Because they are exceptionally reliable, this system is often used in safety-, and time-critical applications. Hand hydraulic systems are used as an emergency backup and can in some cases also be applied as a primary motor starter. This makes the system ideal for engines that require a second starting system, often used to initiate a starting process in emergency situations. You can find two of our popular Prestolite hand hydraulic starter models here: B35G8 | B50G53
