Conrader Smart Start: Easy Start Solution for Air Compressors.
R. Conrader Company has developed a new device designed to eliminate compressor-starting problems. Named the Smart Start, it automatically allows the compressor motor to reach full speed prior to running under loaded conditions.
The Smart Start accomplishes a loadless start by controlling the compressor at the inlet. Simply replace the standard inlet filter on the compressor with the Smart Start, and starting problems go away.
