FIND THE RIGHT MANUAL STARTERS AND SWITCHES FOR YOUR APPLICATION

Schneider manual starters and switches are compact devices primarily used to switch motors ON/OFF. Despite their simplicity, they protect against overloads, shorts, and phase failures. These devices, which are typically operated by a toggle or pushbutton, come in a variety of options from reversing and non-reversing to multi-speed choices.

It is now easier to find the right manual starter or switch for your application by using the Schneider EZ Selector. The EZ Selector guides you through the various versions and multiple options of Type F fractional horsepower starters, Type K manual switches, and Type M (pushbutton) and T (toggle) integral horsepower starters with melting alloy thermal overload relays.

Type F Fractional Horsepower Starters

TYPE F: FRACTIONAL HORSEPOWER STARTERS

Type F fractional horsepower starters provide overload protection as well as manual “ON/OFF” control for small motors in a variety of industrial and commercial installations. Typical applications include fans, conveyors, pumps and small machine tools.

  • Available in 1 or 2 pole versions for AC single phase motors rated up to 1hp. Two-pole starters may also be used with DC.
  • Motors rated up to 1hp (VAC) or 0.75hp (VDC)
  • Voltage Rating
    • 277 VAC Max (1 or 2 pole)
    • 230 VDC Max (2 pole only) Continuous Current Rating 16 Amp
  • Voltage Rating
    • NEMA Type 1 (oversized and flush mount enclosure option available)
    • NEMA Type 4 (zinc alloy die casting)
    • NEMA Type 3R, 7 and 9 (cast aluminum)
