Motor Starters for use with Vacuum Tube Lifters, Vacuum Lifters, Vacuum End-Effectors, Vacuum Hoist Lifters

ANVER Motor Starters are made to the highest quality standards. The motor circuit controller combines the function of:

  • Short circuit protection

  • Current overload protection
  • Switching
  • 3 phase

Manual Starter

ANVER starters can eliminate the need for larger and more expensive fuse blocks and fused disconnects, or circuit breakers.

ANVER starters offer a wide application range, from 0.1 to 25 Full Load Amp (FLA). For group motor applications, ANVER starters have a group installation rating of up to 600V @ 2,000 Amp, one of the highest in the industry.

ANVER starters are also excellent as manual motor starters that employ all of the same motor protection features in one compact unit. ANVER starters are the most compact on the market today).

In the event of a short-circuit, the contacts are opened by magnetic, non-adjusting tripping elements in times approaching 1/1000 of a second.

Because each ANVER starter is individually calibrated at the factory for the smallest and largest current, very accurate thermal overload protection is also obtained. Each motor starter now comes with an enclosure.

Motor Starter Specifications:


Horsepower ratings shown in the table below are for reference. The final selection of the manual starter depends on the actual motor full load current and service factor.

Transformers should be remote mounted
**Other Voltages / Phases Available: Generators can be supplied in the following voltages by adding a transformer: 208V, 220V, 230V, 380V, 440V, 460V, 480V, 575V (consult factory for more information). All generator motors with a voltage of 120V or less use fuses or circuit breakers for protection. Motors and other devices that use more than 200V are fused and/or use thermal overload with a contactor.
Transformers should be Remote Mounted: Increasingly many local regulations require you not to have 3 phase power running below the hook. This is usually the case with smaller units which are intended to be used by an operator. The transformer should thus be wall or remotely mounted for safety. We sell the proper transformers for our lifters which ship separately in a box and need to be installed by a qualified electrician. It is usually best to contract this to a local crane installer or electrician familiar with your state’s local code requirements.

Note: All ANVER electrical components, controls and wiring follow international standards: UL, CSA, NFPA, NEC. It is the user’s responsibility to comply to all additional local electrical codes as they pertain to the installation.
Important: The ASME B30.20 Regulations which are the American Standard ASME website States this about “(i) Power Disconnects.
(1) Hoisting Equipment using an externally powered vacuum lifter shall have a separate vacuum lifter circuit switch of the enclosed type with provision for locking, flagging, or tagging in the open (off) position. The vacuum lifter disconnect switch shall be connected on the line side (power supply side) of the hoisting equipment disconnect switch. (2) Disconnects are not required on externally powered vacuum lifters operating a 120 VAC single phase power source.”
