Troubleshooting using the fault display on the soft starter

If the displayed message does not correspond to any of the following or if you have any other problem, please contact your
sales representative.
The possible fault messages that the soft starter may display, are listed in the table below together with a detailed
description of the fault and corrective actions.
If you need assistance with troubleshooting, it will be helpful if you can attach a photo of the screen with the fault message.

Description
This trip may occur during Starting or Running
and is time related to the protection curves,
depending on which curve and by what
proportion of the Motor Full Load Current, the
motor is drawing.
An over current was detected during start-up.
This trip occurs when the "Maximum Starting
Current" is exceeded during the start ramp.
This limit is defined by parameter "Overload
.protection class" as described in paragraph
6.4.1.

Corrective action
If the motor allows, select a more lenient
trip curve (Protection Class). (Refer
paragraph 6.4.1).
Check the motor current specification
and confirm that the "Maximum Starting
Current" (refer 6.4.4) is set to an
appropriate value in relation to the
"Ramp-up time" (refer 6.4.1).
Also confirm that the "Maximum Ramp-
up time" is at least twice the length of
the time set for "Ramp-up time".
