From Vinnie's Northbay Airstream
"Imagine it's now possible to run your air conditioning from one 2000 watt generator. That means you only need to lug around one Honda or equivalent generator. I installed my first kit this week and it's nothing short of amazing. If I ordered several of these kits do you think there would be some interest in having one installed on your Airstream?
EasyStart™ is a one-of-a-kind soft starter for single-phase motors operating at 115VAC or 230VAC, 50Hz or 60Hz, custom developed by Micro-Air.
EasyStart is not a "hard start kit" nor a start capacitor alone. These devices can only deliver a 10-20% reduction to a compressor's normal startup locked-rotor amperage (LRA). EasyStart is totally different.
EasyStart is a highly-sophisticated, microprocessor-controlled system that employs a 4-part start ramp, precisely sequenced using real-time closed-loop control, that even optimizes itself as it "learns" your compressor motor during the first few startups. This advanced system enables EasyStart to deliver up to 65-75% start current reduction. EasyStart also has numerous specialized fault checks not found in any other soft starter that provide further protection for your compressor motor.
EasyStart is therefore the perfect solution that allows an air conditioner or refrigeration compressor to operate on a generator, inverter, or limited utility power when it would otherwise not have functioned. It can also be applied to air compressor and watermaker pump motors.
The EasyStart 364 is capable of supporting up to a 36000 BTU (3 ton) compressor. It includes a fully-weatherproof (IP65), flameproof, plastic enclosure with an integrated mounting flange and a 40" (1m) harness. Specialized models exist for various applications.
