GV2 GV3 Starter Dial setting

Issue:
Where should the amperage dial be set on a GV2 or GV3 starter 

Product Line: 
GV2 and GV3 Manual Motor starters and protectors 

Environment:
North American Products

Cause:
Installation and Setup

Resolution:

These overloads take into account a standard 1.15-1.25 service factor, and the trip setting is 125% FLA.  For motors with these service factors the amp dial should be set as close to the motor nameplate full load current as possible.
Outside of this range we recommend reaching out to the motor manufacturer for a recommended multiplier.
