Safety
Caution
Danger
Isolated heat sink frames must be grounded with
the grounding lugs provided.
Do not connect any additional control circuits,
such as lamps and relays, across K2 coil (TB1-4
and TB1-12 on the logic board).
All electrical codes must be followed which may
require additional conduit and enclosure
grounding.
Caution
Danger High Voltage
There can be line voltage potential at the motor
load terminals even with the starter in the offstate. This is due to the RC snubber network
across the SCRÕs and leakage across SCRÕs.
The fan control power transformer is pre-wired
at the factory (refer to Section 2). Be sure to
check compatibility to line voltage before
applying line power to the Easy-Start.
Always disconnect input power before servicing
starter or motor.
Notice - Power factor capacitors: Do not
connect power factor correcting capacitors to the
load side of the starter. They will cause the
starter to fail. If capacitors are used they must
be connected to the line side of the starter, at
least 10 feet upstream of the starter.

This solid state starter incorporates 6 SCRÕs in
the power section. It provides a soft-start for 3phase induction motors either with voltage ramp,
or current ramp mode, and with current limit over
ride.
A built in energy saving circuit reduces the motor
voltage and current at light loads, and saves
power.
Block Diagram Description (Figure 2-1)
System Schematic (Figures 2-2 and 2-3)
The line current is sensed by using three current
transformers. These AC signals are converted
to DC through a rectifier. Also, each phase
current is signal conditioned to produce a DC
signal for that phase or power line.
DIP switches are used to calibrate the current
rating and match it to the motor name plate for
these functions:
A. Current Feedback for energy saving load
sensing.
B. Over-Current protection:
1. Inverse-Time Trip
2. Instantaneous Trip
C. Current Limit
By using voltage feedback, the Easy-Start ES
senses the motor load and slip-speed and
adjusts the motor voltage and current to conserve
power whenever the motor is lightly loaded. Line
voltage is also sensed in order to give motor
voltage regulation; this is especially useful at high
line voltages which could cause excess motor
temperature rises.
Easy-Start ES Instruction Manual

Pre-Installation
INSTALLATION
Description
Sensing the line voltage provides important
information for diagnostics and motor protection.
The features include the following:
Phase Rotation Protection:
Inhibits starting of the motor unless rotation is
A-B-C.
Phase Loss Protection:
Trips starter off line if one or more phases are
lost.
Under-Voltage Protection:
Trips starter off line if line voltage drops
below 75% of nominal rating.
The Easy-Start ES has a built-in adjustable
ramp which can be used in either voltage mode
or current mode. It also has an adjustable initial
step which represents initial voltage or initial
current depending on the position of the
voltage/current ramp DIP switch ÒDS3-1.Ó The
ramp and initial step functions are in the circuit
only in the start mode.
The amplifier also has a stability adjustment
which can be used to handle difficult motor load
applications. It is marked STAB and is factory
set to approximately midpoint.
A digital trigger is used on the SCR gates. It
gives near perfect balance of motor voltage
between phases. Its hard firing and fast rise-time
gate pulses insure positive firing of the SCRÕs. Its
wide range insures motor voltage control from
zero to full line voltage with power factors from
0.1 to 1.0.
The current unbalance circuit senses each line
current and the signals are sent to comparators.
The circuit senses when the line currents are
unbalanced and trips the starter off line whenever
the unbalance is greater than 20% from the
average. This feature is useful in diagnostics and
will be covered more in the troubleshooting
section of this manual.
The lockout is an input to the digital trigger. It is
at a logic ÒhighÓ during normal operation. It is
forced to a logic ÒlowÓ by any one of the
protective or alarm functions. In this low state the
gates of the digital trigger are inhibited or Òlocked
outÓ to prevent firing of the SCRÕs.
The ramp and voltage/current signals are fed into
a main amplifier. This amplifier is biased by an
adjustment marked MIN. This adjustment is used
to set the minimum motor voltage at no load. It is
factory set to about 50% of nominal line voltage.

Application Considerations
Installation
1. Ventilated NEMA 1 enclosures should be
mounted so that enough clearance is
available for air to enter and exit the
enclosure. Specific clearance requirements
are shown on enclosure dimension drawings.
Ambient Temperature
Easy-Start ES is rated for 40¡C (104¡F) ambient
temperature. For above 40¡C derate by 5% for
every 5¡C rise over 40¡C up to 50¡C (122¡F)
max.
EXAMPLE: ES180-4N is rated 180 Amps @
40¡C. For 50¡C the rating would be 180 x 0.9
= 162 Amps
2. NEMA 12 enclosures should be mounted so
that heat sink fins are vertical. For wall
mounted units a minimum clearance of 6" on
top and bottom is required.
Altitude
3. Open panel units should be mounted in a box
so the temperature inside the box does not
exceed 50¡C (122¡F).
Multi-Motor Operation
For sizing the enclosure the heat loss in watts
can be estimated at 3 times the full load
current.
EXAMPLE: For ES180-4N the maximum
current rating is 180 amps. The approximate
watts loss at maximum current rating is
3 x 180 = 540 watts.
For units with non isolated heat sinks, all the watt
loss must be dissipated thru box surface.
For units with isolated heat sinks; the heat sink
fins should be brought out in open air thru a
properly gasketed cut out in the enclosure.
Approximately 50% watt loss is dissipated thru
the heat sinks and the remaining 50% should be
dissipated thru the remainder of the box surface,
not counting the heat sink.
Easy-Start ES is rated for 3300 ft. [1000 meters].
Use Figure 2-5 for derating above 3300 ft.
Easy-Start ES can be used to control multiple
motors if the following conditions are met:
The current rating of Easy-Start ES should be
equal to or greater than the total of individual
motor full load amps and DIP switches must
be set for the cumulative full load amps of the
motors.
Individual motor overcurrent protection is
provided by others.
Energy Saver circuit should be turned OFF.
The motors should not be mechanically
coupled together, i.e. two motors on same
shaft.
NEC and local code requirement for
individual motor protection and branch circuit
protection are met.

Application Considerations
The number of starts and stops depends upon
many factors. The most important ones are:
The percent off-time is therefore 12/60 X 100 =
20%. We next look at the starts per hour Table
2-2 for a 70 amp starter (ES070). We can see
that the model ES070 can do only 40 starts per
hour at 350 amps with a start time of 5 seconds
and an off-time of 20%.
1. Position of current limit potentiometer which
can be anywhere from 200-500% of the
current rating set by the DIP switches.
2. Start time.
3. Run time.
4. Off time before next start.
Therefore, we need to use the next larger size
starter, (ES120). From Table 2-3 we can see that
80 starts per hour are allowed at a starting
current of 360 amps with a start time of 5
seconds and a 20% off-time, by using the model
ES120.
The following tables (Table 2-1 thru Table 2-11)
can be used for guidance in frequent
starting/stopping application. These tables are
based on worst case condition that the controller
will be running at the indicated starting current
during the entire start time.
Notice - The Easy-Start ES may trip due to
Frequent Starting/Stopping
The number of starts-per-hour in the following
tables is based on the current carrying capacity
of the Easy-Start ES. If a high number of multiple
starts is used, the starter may trip due to the
inverse-time overload current protection function.
If a trip should occur, due to multiple starts, it is
advisable to wait a period of 10 minutes before re
starting to avoid damage to the Easy-Start ES.
Notice - The motor manufacturer should be
consulted about the effect of a high number of
multiple starts on motor life.
Zero % off-time in the starts per hour tables,
indicates jog duty.
EXAMPLE: If an application requires 1 start per
minute, 60 starts per hour, for a 460V, 50 HP, 70
Amp motor; the cycle time is 60 seconds
between starts. Assume a start time of 5
seconds, at a starting current of 500% (350
amps) is needed, with an off-time between run
and start of 12 seconds, and a run time of 43
seconds.
overcurrent, if repeated starts at high current and
long starting times, are used.
Starting Torque
The reduced voltage applied to the motor results
in reduced inrush current and soft start.
However, it reduces the starting torque of the
motor. The relationship is as follows:
Torque at Reduced
Current
Torque at Full Current
[
Current at Reduced
Voltage 2
Current at Full Voltage
]
EXAMPLE: A 100 HP 1800 RPM 460V NEMA B
motor draws six times full load amps for starting
and starting torque is 150% of full load torque.
If the same motor is started with Easy-Start ES at
300% current limit.
Starting Torque at 300% Current Limit =
[ ]
300
2
600
x starting torque at 600% current = 1/4 x 150%
full load torque = 37.5% full load torque

Application Considerations
NEMA Design C and D Motors, Wound
Rotor Motors
These motors are used due to their high starting
torque characteristics. When high starting
currents and high starting torques are required,
the extended time current option must be
supplied and the unit must be oversized (see
Section 4).
Reversing Starters
If all the limitations are understood and accepted
the Easy-Start ES can be used on line side of an
electro mechanical reversing starter. The
operation should be to start the motor in forward
or reverse after a complete stop. Plug reversing
i.e. going from forward to reverse directly will
damage the starter. It is recommended that
enough time delay be built into the reversing
starter circuit (by others) to prevent restarting
until the motor has come to complete stop.
Wye Delta (Six Lead) Motors
These should be connected in Delta and can
then be started with Easy-Start ES.
Part Winding Motors
Part winding motors are started by applying full
voltage to part of the winding and after a time
delay full voltage is applied to the remaining
winding.
For part winding motors the Easy-Start ES can
be used by connecting the two windings in
parallel.
2-Speed 2-Winding Motor
If all the limitations are understood and accepted
Easy-Start ES may be used on the line side of a
electromechanical 2-speed 2-winding motor but
will provide soft start only if the motor is started in
either speed from complete stop. The ramp (soft
start) can be optimized for one speed only.
Going directly from low speed to high speed or
high speed to low speed would not give smooth
transition and may cause a current surge. It is
recommended that enough time delay be built
into the 2-speed 2-winding starter circuit (by
others) to prevent changing speeds without
coming to full stop.
Another way is to connect Easy-Start ES
between low speed contactor of
electromechanical 2-speed starter and low speed
winding of the motor. This will provide a soft start
on low speed only.
2-Speed Single Winding Motors
The Easy-Start ES is not recommended for use
with 2-speed single winding motors.
Capacitors
Notice - Power factor correction capacitors
should not be connected between load side of
Easy-Start ES and the motor. This will cause
damage to the starter.
When the Easy-Start ES is operating at reduced
voltage on the motor, there may be small
amounts of harmonic current drawn from the AC
power line. There may be a resonant circuit
caused by capacitors across the line. The
capacitors may therefore have a higher
temperature rise than normal. This situation can
be minimized by the following:
-
If a contactor is used to switch the capacitors,
it should have a time delay built in the circuit
so that the contactor closes after the EasyStart ES has ramped up to full voltage.
-
The capacitors should be mounted as far
upstream from the solid state starter as
possible. If capacitors must be used they
must be connected on the line side of the
Easy-Start ES with at least 10 feet of cable
between starter and the capacitors.

Application Considerations
Starting Time
The Easy-Start ES is designed to operate at
500% of its current calibration setting, (set by the
DIP switches) for 20 seconds. If longer starting
times are used, the Easy-Start ES will trip due to
the overcurrent protection feature; (see Figure
3-1).
amps. From Figure 4-1, Model ES180 will supply
900 amps but only for 40 seconds; therefore a
larger unit such as ES260 is required. Using
Figure 4-1, we see that ES260 will handle 900
amps for almost 200 seconds. So ES260 with
extended start time option can be used for this
application.
Circuit Breakers
If longer starting times are required, the extended
start-time option must be purchased. This option
inhibits the inverse-time current trip during the
extended start time.
The Easy-Start ES is capable of 500% current
limit for 20 seconds. The circuit breakers, or
protective devices used upstream, should be
sized so that they can handle the maximum
current for 20 seconds, or longer where extended
start times are required.
Notice - Consult Motor Manufacturer for Effect
Automatic Reset
of Longer Starting Time on Motor Life.
Suppose we have a 150 HP, 180 FLA motor
which is driving a load with 120 second start time
and the current limit is set for 500%, i.e. 900

Pre-Installation
INSTALLATION
Considerations For Field
Wiring
The Easy-Start ES requires the following basic
electrical connections: (Refer to Section 2 for
connection diagrams.)
1. Three-phase line power. (Install proper
voltage plug, see Section 3.)
2. Three-phase AC motor connection.
3. Ground connections.
4. 120 VAC control power, and RESET
Pushbutton.
5. Check CPT connections on fan cooled
models.
The three-phase line power can be from a
suitable disconnect switch or a circuit breaker.
By checking your particular options on your
starter, or by visual inspection, you can determine
if your starter has a factory installed circuit
breaker.
The motor must be a three-wire AC induction
motor.
The 120 VAC can be supplied from a separate
source, or from a control transformer such as a
480V/120V connected to the three-phase line.
By checking your particular options on your
starter, or by visual inspection, you can determine
if your starter has a factory installed isolation
transformer. See option section for CPT
connections.
After a trip, the Easy-Start ES must be reset by
momentarily opening the 120 VAC on the logic
board transformer T2. This is done by using a
normally closed RESET pushbutton between TB1
3 and TB1-17 on the logic board. Should
incoming power to the Easy-Start ES be lost for a
period of time (over 10 seconds) the Easy-Start
ES will automatically reset itself and be prepared
for a normal start upon restoration of power.
(This point is important should a customer
choose to start the Easy-Start ES by an external
contact closure rather than by standard threewire pushbutton controls.)
Fan Control Power Transformer
Easy-Start ES models rated 250 amps and above
are supplied with fans. The fans operate at
110/120 VAC supplied by a factory installed multivoltage control power transformer. Two primary
fuses FU-1 and FU-2 are supplied.
Notice - K102 relay is used to control the fans.
The relay is turned on and off by the start/stop
120 VAC control voltage.
A thermostat (close on temperature rise) is
connected across relay K102 contact and keeps
the fans running after the motor is turned off, if
the temperature in the enclosure is above the
thermostat specified limit. (Refer to Figures 2-9
and 2-10.)

Care should be taken to see that all
interconnecting wiring and ground wiring is sized
and installed in conformance with the National
Electric Code (NEC) published by the National
Fire Protection Association or the Canadian
Electrical Code (CEC) as applicable and other
appropriate local codes. Refer to controller and
motor nameplates for electrical data.
Phase Rotation
The Easy-Start ES has built-in phase rotation
protection. If the 3-phase incoming lines that are
connected to the Easy-Start ES line terminals
(marked A, B, C) are not A-B-C rotation, the fault
light Òphase rotÓ will light up on the logic board,
and front door if mounted in a standard
enclosure. This feature also inhibits starting of
the motor. In order to correct the rotation,
reverse any two lines going into the Easy-Start
ES line terminals. Once the phase rotation is
determined, and if the motor is running in the
wrong direction, reverse any two motor leads on
the load side of the Easy-Start ES.

Easy-Start ES Instruction Manual
3-1
Operation
SECTION 3
Operation
There are primarily two basic modes of operation.
1. Voltage Ramp - The motor voltage is
increased linearly from an initial step voltage,
until it reaches full line voltage. This is done
by the use of the two adjustments, time and
initial step. The initial step adjustment is
used to get the motor turning upon a start
command.
At very low initial step voltage settings, the
motor may not begin to turn for several
seconds.
For true voltage time-ramp operation, the
current limit should be set to its maximum
value ie. 500%, in this manner the current
limit is only used as an over-ride feature and
provides a safeguard from overcurrent.
2. Current Ramp - This type of operation
provides a motor current profile that starts
with an initial step of current, and then ramps
up linearly to a level which can be set by the
current limit adjustment.
This type of operation is recommended for
most high inertia loads since the motor speed
generally responds better with a current ramp
than it does with a voltage ramp.
In both the above modes of operation, the current
limit remains in the circuit to over-ride the ramp.
The current limit is adjustable from 200 to 500%.
A precaution must be advised here, that if the
current limit is adjusted too low, the motor may
start to rotate, but never reach rated speed. This
may cause the electronic current over-load to trip;
see Figure 3-1.
Adjustments
1. Current Calibration DIP Switches (DS1,
DS2) work together as follows:
DS1 is active all the time. DS2 is only in the
circuit whenever a connection is made
between TB1-2 and TB1-8 on the main
logic board. If a relay is used, it should have
dry contacts. If this connection is not made,
DS2 reverts to Ò000Ó setting, and therefore
we use only the DS1 settings and the 1st
column of multipliers from 0.282 to 1.00; (see
Table 3-1). When a connection is made
between TB1-2 and TB1-8, this gives us 128
possible settings and extends the current
range to approximately 7:1.
The DIP switch current settings depend on
the CT used with the starter. The maximum
ampere setting is 1/6 of the CT rating.

multiplier divide 235/250=0.940
From tables use multiplier that is
equal or slightly less than 0.940
(use 0.934 DS1=Ò1101Ó
DS2=Ò000Ó) this gives us
0.934 x 250 = 234 amps.
Example - 2 100 HP 117 FLA: Multiplier =
117/250 = 0.468 (we select 0.460
DS1=Ò1001Ó and DS2=Ò111Ó) this
gives us 0.460 x 250=115 amps.
In order to activate DS2, connect
TB1-2 to TB1-8 on the logic board.

EASY-START ES
RATING
Notice - A voltage plug selected from Table
3-13, must be installed into the socket (J5) on
the logic board prior to start-up. (See Figure
4-14.)
There is also a jumper on the logic board that
must be in one of two positions. These
positions are marked LO HI. (See Figure
4-14.) The jumper is factory installed in
the “HI” position.
This jumper can remain in the HI position
except when operating at the lowest line
voltage rating of the two models rated:
208/230/460 and 460/500/575 volts. The
jumper is then moved to the LO position to
accommodate the low voltage end of the
voltage combination. Refer to Table 3-13 for
jumper positions.

DIP Switch Settings
4. Time - The ramp time is adjustable from 1 to
40 seconds. The maximum setting is at the
full clockwise position. In the voltage-ramp
mode, this function ramps the motor voltage
up from an initial step to full line voltage. The
motor may come up to speed before the
voltage ramp is finished; this depends on the
application and the type of load on the motor.
The voltage ramp will continue until full motor
voltage is reached. This is called END OF
RAMP. (Factory setting of ÒTimeÓ is
approximately 20 secs.)
If the energy-saving switch is in the OPEN
position, and if the motor is not fully loaded,
the motor voltage will then be reduced, while
still maintaining the motor rated slip speed.
The starter will now be running in the
ÒEnergy-SavingÓ mode.
If the energy-saving switch is in the CLOSED
position, the motor voltage will remain at full
voltage and will be essentially running across
line.
In the current-ramp mode, this function ramps
the motor current up from an initial step to a
point where the current limit is set, or to the
point where break-away torque occurs. The
motor may come up to speed in a shorter
time period than the ramp ÒTimeÓ setting.
This depends on the type of load on the
motor. Whenever the motor comes up to
rated speed, the current will decrease from a
starting current to a running current. The
current ramp will automatically terminate and
the motor will either run in the energy-saving
mode or, across-line, depending on the
position of the energy-saving switch.
5. Initial Step - This adjustment sets the initial
voltage which is applied to the motor when
the start command is given. The maximum
setting is at the full clockwise position.
This adjustment should be set in conjunction
with the ÒTimeÓ adjustment. With the ÒTimeÓ
adjustment set to mid-range, and the ÒInitial
StepÓ set to minimum (CCW), start the motor
and check its response in your particular
application. If a higher initial voltage is
needed to start the motor turning quicker,
increase the ÒInitial Step.Ó
It may require several adjustments and
several motor starts in order to optimize the
ÒTimeÓ and ÒInitial StepÓ settings. A
combination of these adjustments is what
gives us a ÒSoft-Start.Ó
The “Initial Step” is factory set as follows:
Approximately 50% on initial voltage and
150% on initial current.
6. Current Limit - The current limit is
adjustable from 200 to 500% of the DIP
switch current setting.
The maximum setting is at the full clockwise
position. It can over-ride both initial step and
ramp time in the start mode.
This adjustment can control the available
starting torque.
It is also used to limit the inrush current on
the power lines, or generator, feeding the
starter.
It is also used to limit the locked rotor current,
in case of a stalled motor condition on startup.
The current limit adjustment should always
be set high enough to insure starting of the
motor under the worst case load conditions.
Notice - The Cur Lim is factory set to 450%.

Operation
SECTION 3
DIP Switch Settings
7. Current Trip - The current trip is adjustable
from 100 to 120% of the DIP switch current
setting.
It is active all the time; during start and run.
The maximum setting is at the full clockwise
position.
This adjustment is used to accommodate the
service factor rating of the motor. For
example, for a service factor of 115%, the
control should be set to 3/4 clockwise.
The current trip adjustment will affect the
entire overload trip-time curve. (See Figure
3-1.)
Notice - The Cur Trip is factory set to
approximately 100%.
8. The following adjustments are done at the
factory:
A. MIN volts
B. MAX volts
C. STAB
A. Minimum volts is set to 50% of line
voltage. This adjustment should only be
made with DS3-2 OPEN.
Example: The motor volts is set to 240
volts when running from a 480V power
line. This is done at the factory with the
motor running at no load.
It is important to note that the voltage
applied to the motor by the Easy-Start ES
is entirely dependent on the motor load.
For example, take the extreme case when
the motor is running at 100% of rated
load; the motor voltage should not be
reduced since it could cause the motor to
overheat due to excessive current.
The Easy-Start ES automatically adjusts
the motor voltage to the value necessary
to maintain normal operation at the most
efficient energy usage. If the motor
voltage is not as low as it was expected to
be, it is most likely that the motor is not
fully unloaded.
Notice - The factory setting of 50%
should be satisfactory for the majority of
applications.
B. The maximum volts is set at the factory
for 100% motor voltage at 100% motor
load.
Notice - This factory setting does not
normally require readjustment.
The MIN VOLTS adjustment must be
made first, before attempting to adjust the
MAX VOLTS.
Here is a procedure that can be followed
if it becomes necessary to adjust the max
volts:
This adjustment should only be made with
DS3-2 OPEN. Connect a voltmeter to the
line side and another voltmeter to the load
side of the starter. Use an ammeter to
monitor the motor current. Increase the
motor load to 100% of rating by observing
when the motor current reaches its FLA
rating; adjust the MAX VOLTS until the
motor voltage is nearly equal to the line
voltage. There will be approximately a
one or two volt loss in the power
semiconductors.
Notice - Maximum volts adjustment is
to optimize energy savings and will not
protect starter against abnormally high
line voltages.
Easy-Start ES Instruction Manual
3-12
Operation
SECTION 3
DIP Switch Settings
The MIN VOLTS and MAX VOLTS
adjustments enable the Easy-Start ES to
automatically follow the motor load and
adjust the motor voltage to the value
necessary to maintain normal operation at
the most efficient energy usage.
C. Stability Adjust - Every system has its
own unique inertial response. It is the job
of the Easy-Start ES starter control circuit
to regulate over a very broad range of
systems. Failure of a controller to
regulate can result in very large current
surges while the load is constant.
The Easy-Start ES control performs this
job very well for nearly every application.
There are, however, a few stubborn
cases. For these special cases a stability
adjustment STAB has been included to
compensate the control to match the
system response.
PROCEDURE: Connect a voltmeter
between any two phases at the load
terminals. If the voltage remains
constant, or, if it varies proportional to
load changes, the starter is regulating and
no adjustment is required.
If the load is constant but the voltage
changes erratically, adjust STAB until the
voltage is steady.
Caution
Caution should be taken to determine whether
the voltage is changing because of instability or
load changes. If there is a doubt, the system is
most likely operating properly. If it is unstable
there is usually very little doubt, as the changes
will produce very violent surging.

the SCRs are fully on, or when shorted. During
normal operation of the starter, if full voltage is
applied to the motor, the three LEDs, PHASE A,
B, and C will be off.
If an SCR in one phase is shorted, that phase
indicator will remain off, while the other two

SECTION 4
Application Notes
Extended Start Time Option
This option is used to extend the starting time. It
inhibits the Inverse Time Trip function output, on
the Easy-Start ES Logic Board during this time
period. The total time, for which the Inverse Time
Trip function is inhibited, is adjustable from 2 to
12 minutes in discrete intervals, by using a DIP
switch on the option board. All other protective
features, such as Instantaneous Overcurrent Trip,
Under-Voltage Trip, Phase Loss, are still able to
function.
The Easy-Start ES must be sized to handle the
expected starting current for up to 12 minutes.
Use the rating curves (Figures 4-1 and 4-2) in the
Instruction Manual in order to determine the
Current rating vs Time.
During the extended start time period, there is no
motor overload protection provided by the EasyStart ES. The user should also consult with the
motor manufacturer and make sure that the
motor can handle the long starting duty at the
prescribed current set by the Easy-Start ES. The
current limit is in effect during this extended
starting time and is adjustable from 200 to 500%
of the DIP switch setting.
The Inverse-Time Current Trip Circuit is
accumulating the Current Signals at all times,
and has a built-in thermal memory on Òcool-
down.Ó This cool-down period of time can be as
long as 1.5 minutes. Therefore, it is necessary to
set the extended start time for 1.5 minutes longer
than the anticipated starting time of the motor.
This permits the Inverse-Time Current Trip Circuit
to be cooled down after start, so that when the
Inverse-Time Trip is re-activated, nuisance trips
will be avoided.
Example: If the motor starting time is anticipated
to be 5 minutes with the selected current limit
setting, the extended time on the option board
should be set to 6.5 minutes.
Notice - At the end of 6.5 minutes, if the motor
has not started, and is still in current limit, the
Easy-Start ES will immediately shut off and
indicate a ÒCurrent TripÓ condition.
DIP switch DS22 is a 2-position switch located on
the option board. It is used to turn the options on
or off, since there may be more than one option
on a single board.
The EXTENDED START TIME function can be
turned on and off with the first position on this
switch, DS22-1 (OPEN=off, CLOSED=on).
DS22-1 is factory set to the OFF position.
DIP switch DS21 is a 4-position switch and can
be used to set the total EXTENDED START
TIME in discrete steps.

Easy-Start ES End-of-Ramp Option
This option is supplied on the same PC board as
the Extended Start Time Option. It senses the
SCR trigger analog voltage and sends out a
signal to tell us whenever the End of Ramp is
reached. This signal indicates that the motor has
reached 100% voltage and the SCRs are FULL
ON. This output signal is sent to a relay with 2
Form-C contacts (rated 1 amp 120V ac) which
change state at the END-OF-RAMP. These 2
Form-C contacts are brought out to 2 terminal
blocks on the Option Board; (TB21 and TB23).
- By-Pass Contactor control signal.
(Figure 4-3.)
- Sequential Starting of other motors, or
process functions.
This END-OF-RAMP option will operate with the
Easy-Start ES in either the Voltage Ramp or
Current Ramp mode. However, it will only send
out a signal whenever the motor voltage reaches
100%. Therefore, when running in the Current
Ramp mode, there may be a time lapse before
the END-OF-RAMP signal is executed. The
reason being that the current will usually reach
the end of its ramp-up before the motor reaches
full voltage. This depends on the type of loadtorque and inertia being impressed on the motor.
The END-OF-RAMP option can be turned on and
off with DIP switch DS22-2 (OPEN=off,
CLOSED=on) located on the option board.
DS22-2 is factory set to the off position.
Extended Time-Current Option
This option enables the Easy-Start ES to extend
the time and current during Motor Starting. It is
supplied on the same PC board as the Extended
Start Time option.
This feature is helpful when a customer wishes to
start a motor under a current limit which is
beyond the normal current limit range of 200% to
500% of the Easy-Start ES DIP switch setting,
but when the customer still wishes to have
accurate overcurrent protection during normal
ÒrunÓ conditions.
By using an oversized Easy-Start ES model,
starting currents of 600% and greater can be
obtained, and still maintain motor protection
during starting and running.

SECTION 4
Notice - When using the Extended Time-
Application Notes
Current option, do not make a connection
between TB1-2 and TB1-8 on the main logic
board.
Extended Time-Current Option
This option would enable the Easy-Start ES to be
used on NEMA A, B, C, D, or any three-phase
induction motor with locked rotor codes up to 8.0
KVA per horsepower.
This EXTENDED TIME-CURRENT feature is
accomplished by calibrating the starting current
with main DIP switch DS1, and after the motor
has accelerated to full speed, by re-calibrating
the Easy-Start ES for the normal running current,
based on the settings of both DS1 and DS2.
(See Example-1.)
Terminal TB1-8 on the main logic board is the
enable terminal for DS2. It can be enabled with a
+12V dc signal.
The Extended Time-Current option cannot be
turned on and off with a DIP switch. In order to
enable this option, a connection must be made
between TB22-1 on the option board and TB18 on the main logic board. The option board
then applies +12V dc to TB1-8 on the logic board
at the End-Of-Ramp, and electrically switches the
ac current calibration from STARTING current to
RUNNING current.
Example-1:
Motor: 150 HP, 180 Amps, 460V ac 3-phase,
service factor=1.00
Locked rotor code-G
(5.6 - 6.29 KVA per HP)
Max Locked Rotor Current
= 6.29 KVA/HP X HP /460 X 1.732
= 6.29 X 1000 X 150/460 X 1.732
= 1184 AMPS (658% FLA)
To determine which Easy-Start ES rating will be
needed:
Divide 1184 by 5
1184/5 = 236.8 Amps
Use a model rated equal or greater than 236.8
amps.
Select Model ES260: Rated at 260 amps
continuous
Rated at 5 X 260
= 1300 amps 20 seconds,
which is more than the
1184 amps required.

(Refer to Instruction Manual, Table 3-1). Select
DS1 by looking in first column (DS2=000). Use a
rating that is equal or slightly higher than 236.8
amps. Since we must satisfy both starting and
running current, we must look at the same row,
reading across, to find a setting equal or slightly
less than the FLA (180 amps). We select 242.8
from the 1st column and 176.1 in the same row,

The end of ramp-up relay can be used to control
a by-pass contactor; see Figure 4-5. The
interface relays K12 and K13 supply the proper
120V ac control logic to the by-pass contactor
coil. Relay K12 activates at the end of ramp-up
and relay K13 activates at the beginning of rampdown (smooth-stop). When K13 opens, this
opens K12 at the beginning of smooth-stop and
this de-energizes the by-pass contactor coil.
The solid state starter is thus under control during
the ramp-up (soft-start) and ramp-down (smoothstop) portions of the motor control cycle.
The by-pass contactor is in control during the run
mode (the period between the ramp-up and
ramp-down). However, if a fault trip occurs, both
the SCRÕs and contactor are turned off, and
motor protection is still maintained. The ÒRESETÓ
button can be activated, once the fault is cleared,
and the motor may be restarted.
1.2 To stop motor using smooth-stop function,
momentarily press the smooth-stop

2-Wire Contact
Figure 4-7 shows how a 2-wire remote contact is
used to SOFT-START and SMOOTH-STOP the
motor.
JAM Option
(Close DIP switch DS41-1 to activate the JAM
Trip option.)
The JAM option is used to provide an immediate
trip if there is an overload on the motor during the
run mode. The JAM trip is de-activated during
the START and STOP modes of the solid state
motor starter operation.
If the motor current exceeds a preset value (set
by DS40 on the J option board), the starter will
trip.
The JAM overcurrent trip point is selectable
between 100% and 250% of the Easy-Start ES
main logic board current setting, by means of the
4-position DIP switch DS40; this switch is located
on the JAM option printed circuit board.
(See Figure 4-8 below for DS40 settings and %
trip points.)
Also, the inverse time delay of the JAM trip can
be adjusted; DS41-2 and DS41-3 are used to
adjust the trip time delay. The trip time delay
works on an inverse-time-trip mode; ie. the
greater the amount of overload, the faster the trip
time. (See Figure 4-9 for trip time curves.)
Underload Option
(Close DIP switch DS43-1 to activate the
ÒUnderloadÓ option.)
The Underload option is used to provide a trip
when the motor goes from a loaded to an
unloaded condition. The ÒUnderload TripÓ is deactivated during the ÒStartÓ and ÒStopÓ modes of
the solid state motor starter operation.
The underload trip point is adjustable between
25% and 90% of the Easy-Start ES main logic
board current setting by means of the 4-position
DIP switch DS42; this switch is located on the
underload option printed circuit board. (See
Figure 4-10 below for DS42 settings and % trip
points.)
Also, the inverse time delay of the underload trip
can be adjusted; DS43-2 and DS43-3 are used to
adjust the trip time delay. The trip time delay
works on an inverse-time-trip mode; ie the
greater the amount of underload, the faster the
trip time. (See Figure 4-11 for trip time curves.)

Troubleshooting Guide
A. Equipment Required
1. Multimeter Simpson 260 or Equivalent.
2. Clamp-On Ammeter.
Danger High Voltage
When making any measurements other than
voltage or current readings, be sure that the line
power is disconnected.
Never use a grounded voltmeter or oscilloscope
to make measurements.
5. Check the diagnostic LEDÕs. These are
located on the main logic board and also
on the front door on standard factory
supplied enclosures:
Front Door Status Panel:

PHASE ROT LED
Do not use a megger for checking
semiconductors.
B. Problem: The Motor Does Not Rotate
CHECK:
1. Measure the 3-phase line voltage.
2. Measure the 120 VAC control voltage at
TB1-4 and TB1-17.
3. Check that all the connectors and plugs
are securely fastened and snapped into
place:
J-1 Current input from CTÕs.
J-2 Line voltage input.
J-3 Ribbon cable connector for LED
status panel board.
J-4 Option connector (used for options).
J-5 Voltage plug (installed by user).
J-6 Option connector (used for options).
J-101 A-Phase SCR gate control leads.
J-201 B-Phase SCR gate control leads.
J-301 C-Phase SCR gate control leads.
4. Observe that all interwiring between the
logic board, SCRÕs, heat sinks, and
current transformers are intact and are
not pinched.
On initial installations and start-up, the ÒPhase
RotÓ LED may come on, indicating that the
incoming line phase rotation is not A-B-C. This
can be corrected by reversing any two lines that
are connected to the line terminals of the EasyStart ES.
The direction of motor rotation must be corrected
at the load terminal side of the Easy-Start ES; if
the motor is not running in its correct rotation,
reverse any two motor leads.
PHASE LOSS LED
Check voltages at the line terminals.
Phase-A to Phase-B
Phase-B to Phase-C
Phase-C to Phase-A
Usually one or more of the other diagnostic LEDÕs
may come on if there is a phase loss; the reason
is that the logic board is not receiving voltage
from all three phases of the proper magnitude.
If all 3-phase voltages are present at the line
terminals, and only the ÒPhase RotÓ LED remains
on, the phase rotation must be corrected as
described in the preceding paragraph.
Easy-Start ES Instruction Manual
5-2
Troubleshooting
SECTION 5
Troubleshooting Guide
If the RUN LED comes on and the motor does
not rotate; check the following:
UNDER VOLT LED
-
Measure the voltage at test point TP-6 on the
logic board; it should be greater than 5 VDC.
-
Check DIP switch DS1 and DS2 settings
against motor FLA. Remember, DS2 is only
activated if there is a connection made
between TB1-2 and TB1-8 on the logic board.
-
Curr Lim LED - The motor may be in a
current limit; check the Curr Lim adjustment.
Turn Curr Limit adjust CW. If the motor does
not start, change the logic board.
Check voltages at the line terminals.
The under-voltage circuit will activate if the line
voltage is below 75% of nominal line voltage.
(The under-voltage LED will not activate if the line
voltage is disconnected from the starter, this is
not treated as an under-voltage case.)
If the correct voltages are measured at the line
terminals, check to see if the proper voltage plug
is installed in the logic board. An example would
be, if the 460V voltage plug is installed in the
logic board and you are operating from a 230V
supply line. Make sure the ÒHIÓ ÒLOÓ jumper is
properly installed on the logic board. (See Table
3-13.)
When giving a start command, if a fault trip LED
comes on, check the following:
-
Again, as stated in a previous paragraph, the
under voltage LED may also come on if there is a
phase loss.
Curr Trip LED May indicate a wrong DIP
switch DS1 and DS2 setting, or a short at the
load or motor.
-
Curr Unbal LED May indicate one of the
following:
If all voltages read properly, and none of the
LED's are on, you are now ready to give the start
command to the motor.
a. Open gate-cathode lead connection,
check the wires and also see if
connectors are seated properly.
The RUN LED should come on, and stay on,
whenever you give the start command. If it does
not, check the 120 VAC control voltage at the
terminal strip TB1. Read 120 VAC between TB112 and TB1-4 while holding the start button or
switch, in the on position.
b. Open motor lead.
Visually check to see if the relay (K2) on the logic
board is activating.
c. Open SCR gate (refer to SCR diagnostic
tests Section 5-D.)
d. Shorted SCR (refer to SCR diagnostic
tests.)
e. Open CT, or open lead in connector J-1.
If the run LED does not come on, check the start,
stop, reset, 120 VAC control circuit and all
customer interlocks.

Troubleshooting
SECTION 5

D. SCR Diagnostic Tests
C. Problem: The motor rotates but does not
reach full speed. The RUN LED is on; but
the END OF RAMP LED does not come on.
Check:
1. DIP switch DS1 and DS2 settings against
motor FLA.
2. Current limit adjustment may be set too
low and will not provide enough starting
torque; turn Curr Lim adjustment CW to
increasing starting current. Measure the
motor current with a clamp-on ammeter.
3. Curr Trip LED - If the current limit
adjustment has been turned to its full CW
position and the current trip LED comes
on, before the motor reaches full speed,
the Easy-Start ES may be undersized for
the motor application. (See Over-Load
Time-Current Characteristics Figure 3-1.)
Try turning curr trip adjustment full CW.
Try starting the motor in a reduced load
condition; or if possible, remove the load
from the motor completely and try for a
successful start. This will help confirm
that the Easy-Start ES is operating to its
specifications. After a normal start has
been completed, both the RUN LED and
END OF RAMP LED will be on, and
generally, for most normal applications,
this will take less than 20 seconds. If the
motor cannot be started, change the logic
board.
Caution
All power should be turned OFF when making
ohmmeter measurements.
1. Shorted SCR - Measure from:
Line-A to Load-A
Line-B to Load-B
Line-C to Load-C
The resistance reading should be high or
near infinity. A near zero reading
indicates a shorted SCR. If any phase is
shorted, replace the defective SCR.
There are two basic types of SCRÕs used
in Easy-Start ES:
Isolated block SCRÕs containing 2 SCRÕs
internally connected; the entire SCR block
should be replaced in this case.
Non-isolated hockey puk SCRÕs externally
connected; in order to determine which
SCR to replace, the copper strap or bussbar connected between heatsinks, will
have to be removed so that the SCRÕs can
be measured individually.
2. Open or Shorted Gate - Remove the 3
gate plugs, J-101, J-201, J-301, from the
logic board. The ohmmeter
measurements should be made between
pins 1 to 4 and pins 3 to 6 of each plug.
The typical ohmic value should be
between 5 and 200 ohms. If readings of
near zero ohms, or near infinity, are
measured, replace the SCR.
Hockey puks should always be measured
installed in pressure clamps, or false
readings may result.

1. Turn off all power to the Easy-Start ES.
2. Remove plugs J101, J201, and J301 from
the logic board.
3. Place a short jumper across resistors
R177 and R233. (This inhibits the phase
rotation and phase loss trip circuits.)
4. Close DS3-2. This defeats the energy
saver circuit.
5. Turn on the 120 VAC control voltage and
three-phase power.
6. Energize the start or HOA switch to turn
the starter on. (Make sure the RUN and
END OF RAMP LEDÕs are on when
taking measurements. Turning the TIME
pot full CCW will give a fast ramp-up for
taking measurements; remember to
return the TIME pot to the normal running
condition when the measurements are
completed.
The voltages should be approximately 0.7
volts DC.
Replace the logic board if the correct
readings are not obtained.
Logic Board Voltage Measurements
The connector marked ÒJ4Ó on the logic board
can be used for options and test point voltage
measurements. J4 pin number identification and
typical test point voltage readings are shown on
Table 5-1. These readings can also be taken
directly on the logic board. The associated
components and test points are listed under the
column marked ÒLocation.Ó Whenever a test
point terminal is supplied, example TP1, its
location is also shown on Figure 4-14. There are
two ÒLogic CommonÓ test points on the board;
they are TB1- 1 and a terminal marked ÒGND.Ó
One of these points must be used for the
negative lead of the voltmeter.
If any of the above trigger output or test voltage
measurements are not correct, the logic board
should be replaced.

SCR Service Procedures: (Hockey-Puk
Type)
When changing SCRÕs in the field, it is best to
remove the entire heat sink and lay it in a
horizontal position. However, if this is not
convenient, the following procedure can be used:
1. Remove the printed circuit logic board.
2. Remove the line power cable.
3. Remove the power strap between the two
short heat sinks.
7. Place the SCR against the side of the sink
that has the locating pin and make sure it
engages and is seated properly. Place the
other half of the heat sink against the SCR,
and holding the assembly together, tighten
the nuts on the compression clamp equally
until they are finger tight. Check that the
same number of threads are visible on both
clamp studs.
8. Tighten both nuts alternately in quarter-turn
increments until the correct pressure is
obtained. See Figures 5-1 and 5-2 for SCR
clamps.
SCR Mounting Clamp Pressure Can Be
Determined by the Pole Face Dimension
4. Loosen the two bolts (or nuts) on the
pressure clamp until there is enough
clearance between the two heat sinks to
remove the SCR.
5. Remove the SCR.
6. Before installing the new SCR the old thermal
compound should be removed from the heat
sink and the mating surfaces should be
inspected for burrs or voids. If it is necessary,
use an extra fine grit emery cloth to smooth
the mating heatsink surfaces. Coat the
surfaces of the SCR with a thin coat of
thermal compound (Alcoa-2 or an equivalent
electrical joint compound). Wipe off the
excess compound.

SECTION 5
SCR Diagnostic Tests
Pre-Start
-
Review Cutler-Hammer recommended
procedures for mounting ÒdiscÓ power
semiconductors (refer to W SCD Mounting Kit
instructions).
-
CAUTION: Deficient heat sink materials may
creep or cold flow, relax, deflect with time and
temperature under these high load forces.
Stack assemblies must be thoroughly
checked at design ratings.
-
Spring load bar epoxy insulation coating is
rated at 130¡C NEMA B, 5000V RMS.
Maximum sink temperature is restricted to
90¡C maximum because of the high load
forces used in clamping (high current) power
semiconductors.
Stack Pre-Assembly
Step 1: Assemble sink-device clamp parts
(reference clamp drawing, Figure 5-1).
Notice - It is recommended that a lubricant be
used on the clamp bolt threads. Never-Seez,
Anti-Seize lubricant compound, Type NSBT, is
suitable material for this purpose.
Stack Pre-Load
Step 2: If an inch-pound torque wrench is
available, torque each clamp nut to 20
in-lbs.
Step 3: Check to make sure that load bars and
heat sinks are parallel; equal lengths to
thread may not show through each nut
because of bolt length tolerances. (If
load bars/sinks are not parallel, redo
Step 2).
Stack Loading
Step 4: Insert a set of "vernier calipers" or other
suitable depth gauging instrument
through the hole in the uncoated bar.
This gauge must be long enough to
extend through the load bar and touch
the hardened disc (approximately 2.30").
See Figure 5-4.
Step 5: Measure and record an initial reading of
this distance ÒXÓ.
Step 6: Turn each nut 1/4 turn at a time until a
relative displacement at ÒXÓ of 0.034" is
obtained. This results in 10,000+
pounds force.
Stack Inspection
Step 7: Check load bars and heat sinks for
parallelism. Apply a hi-temp paint over
the clamp bolt/nut mating surfaces to fix
their properly tightened original position
(tamper indicator).
Step 8: Check stack assembly electrical values
per device specifications.
Notice -
This torque value is valid for welllubricated threads only.
Should a torque wrench not be available,
finger tighten each nut until snug; then
turn each nut 1/4 turn with a wrench.
Parts should now be held firmly.

Changing Isolated Block SCRÕs:
The following procedure can be used for
changing isolated block SCRÕs.
1. Remove the printed circuit logic board.
2. Remove the power and control connections
from the SCR and identify the wires.
3. Remove the SCR block.
4. Before installing the new SCR block, the old
thermal compound and any foreign matter
should be removed from the heat sink mating
surface. If necessary, use an extra fine grit
emory cloth to smooth the heat sink surface.
Coat the bottom surface of the SCR block
with a thin coat of thermal compound (Alcoa2 or an equivalent electrical joint compound).
Wipe off the excess compound.
5. Place the SCR block into position on the heat
sink. Insert bolts and tighten them finger
tight, or use a wrench until all the bolts are
just snug. Tighten the bolts alternately in
quarter-turn increments until the SCR block is
tight. Keep equal pressure on all the
mounting hardware. Visually inspect the
SCR block to make sure it's lying flat on the
heat sink.
6. Securely fasten the power and control wiring
on the SCR block. Tug on the leads gently to
make sure there are no loose connections.
Check to make sure the SCR block is wired
with the correct polarity.
