From the Micro-Air Website: EasyStart™ is a one-of-a-kind, custom-developed soft starter for single-phase motors. The standard version can support both 115-230VAC/50-60Hz motors, and the RV version supports only 115V/50-60Hz motors. It employs a 4-part start ramp sequence that is self-optimizing, resulting in the lowest possible start-up current. EasyStart can deliver 65-75% start current reduction as compared to a compressor's LRA (locked-rotor amperage). It also has numerous specialized fault checks not found in any other soft starter to provide further protection for your compressor. EasyStart is the perfect solution that allows an air conditioner or refrigeration compressor to operate on a generator, inverter, or limited utility power when it would otherwise not have functioned.
My personal review: I purchased two of the EasyStart™ 364 (3-ton) Soft Starter for my RV. I have a 15K AC in the lounge area and a 13.5K AC in the bedroom. I found the installation instructions and model specific wiring diagram to be very helpful. Installation took about 30 min per AC, but that was partly because I tend to take my time with RV modifications. I was really impressed with how well the AC units performed after the mod. I expected the compressor ramp-up time to be quite brief, but it seems like I was able to see the current ramp up on my EMS monitor over two display cycles. This slow ramp up time allows the generator to slowly ramp up it's power to match the load without faulting. I can run either AC on my Honda EU3000i Handi generator with power to spare for the battery charger, all while running the generator in the Eco mode. Thank you Micro-Air for a terrific product.
