What is a NEMA M-1P Manual Starter?

Issue:
Needs to know what the M-1P manual starter is?

Product Line:
Type M Manual Starters

Environment:
IEC Contactors and Starters

Resolution:
That is a 2 pole 5hp 230v Starter. NEMA standards only allow for one designation other than a number for sizing starters and that is the 1P designation to allow for a 5Hp/230v single phase motor. In this case the M prefix means Manual starter.
