Thanks typed it in and got it.
How will this work with a fridge? Basically the idea should be just fine, however I assume it(soft start) has capacitors to start the load, so would one for a/c be sized good for a fridge? Seems that it would not?
I have a three phase starter for my milling machine and lathes and it is sized for the motor hp and works great for the correct size motor. For my small mill the motor is too small for the size of the starter so I put a larger motor on the floor to use to balance the load and help create the third phase. I know the phase converter uses capacitors and sizing is important. So with this thinking in mind I am wondering if the same rules apply to the fridge?
