Can I use shorting contactors with the S811+?

The S811+ has internal bypass contactors that short the SCR's when the motor has achieved normal operating RPM. This allows the smaller footprint of the unit as well as extended the service life of the SCR's.

External devices such as emergency bypass contactors, direct-on-line starters, and other devices can be placed in parallel with the S811+ to expand operational capabilities.
