Product Line:
Altistart ATS22 

Environment:
All

Cause:
They want to know if a three phase motor rated at 3.9 amps could be started with an ATS22D17S6U soft starter?

Resolution:
The rated motor current can be programmed to 40% of the Soft starters current ratings. 
Example if the Soft starter rated current (IcL) is 17 amps you can decrease the motor nominal current (In) parameter of the soft starter to as low as 40% or 17*.4 = 6.8 amps.
