Can an ATS23 be used with a motor that is smaller than the rating of the soft starter?

Issue:   Can an ATS23 be used with a motor that is smaller than the rating of the soft starter?
 
Product Line:  ATS23 
 
Environment:  All
 
Cause:   N/A
 
Resolution:   The soft starter will fault if the current is less than 10 % of the rating. Therefore, the actual load must be great enough to cause the motor to draw more than 10% of the rated current for the soft starter. If the load is light you may be able to get it to run if the ACC is decreased.
