Why does the ATS46 controlled by a PLC or some other type of control system after the start command is issued because of programming a certain window of time for the unit to start and achieve ramp ( running an escalator conveyor type application ) not start on first try in the morning? However everytime after that it works all day long with no problem, like for some reason it takes a little longer on the first start than the others. <br />

Under a cold start condition, it`s possible that the acceleration ramp time could be longer due to motor characteristic, etc. The customer should try extending the time on the PLC or what ever other control system ``up-to-speed`` window up about 4 seconds as a starting point. For instance if currently have 6 second acceleration would extend to 10 seconds.
