A starter has two core functions in the hard rock mining industry. Firstly, they are developed to keep workers safe from the risk of fire or electrocution. Secondly, they help to control the behavior of equipment and safely turn different applications on and off.

The Ampcontrol range of starters has been developed to support hard rock mining applications and provide power to fans, pumps and jumbos. Each starter is fitted with protection relays and Ampcontrol’s Outlet Test System (OTS), a fully automated, comprehensive outlet testing system that eliminates the need for paper-based records.

Our range also includes the Rockstarter, a multifunction outlet starter designed for use in underground hard rock mining as well as tunnelling and other industrial applications.
