Please Note:The EasyStart 366 is meant for OEM applications. Given its lower cost and higher complexity, Micro-Air will be unable to provide detailed technical support to DIY customers for single installations. Thank you for your understanding.
EasyStart™ is a one-of-a-kind, custom-developed soft starter for single-phase motors. It can support both 115 and 230VAC motors. It employs a 4-part start ramp sequence that is self-optimizing, resulting in the lowest possible start-up current. EasyStart can deliver up to 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. It can also be applied to air compressor and fluid pump motors.
The EasyStart 366 is available in two models. The X05 model is capable of supporting up to a 36000 BTU ( 3 ton) compressor. The X06 model is capable of supporting up to a 72000 BTU (6 ton) compressor. The start capacitor and enclosure are not included (board-only), thus providing a substantial cost savings, but they must be provided by the installer.
|Up to 12kBTU||72-86MFD|
115VAC applications can use 250V or 330V rated start capacitors.
230VAC applications must use 330V rated start capacitors.
Micro-Air stocks certain sizes of start capacitors and they are available at this link.
