GS11 Universal Soft Starter (20A max. Heavy duty)

Raymond Innovations, LLC

Regular price $199.99 $179.99 Sale


Our soft starters are software-controlled using the latest technology.

The GS11 is the bigger brother of the GS10 featuring a 5-20R receptacle, 5-20P power cord plug, and 12AWG gauge conductors inside and out. Otherwise, it is constructed exactly the same. 

Adding a soft start function to your power tools, pumps, etc. has never been so simple, just plug it in! And the best part, it's so simple and versatile that you can soft start your other compatible equipment as well.  You can even leave multiple devices plugged into the soft starter at all times via a splitter or power strip. Just remember, only use one device at a time and make sure that the GS10 or GS11 maximum current rating is not exceeded by your equipment. Onward!



-This product is not intended to reduce overall current consumption.
-This product model is not compatible with digital applications, air compressors, air conditioners, or dehumidifiers.

Originally built for use with universal motor power tools, this soft starter has since evolved to provide you so much more with a wide-variety of applications:

  1.  Prolonging equipment life
  2.  Noise reduction
  3.  Preventing Brown outs and dimming lights
  4.  Preventing nuisance circuit breaker tripping

      2 problems 1 Solution

      This thing helped a 1hp Goulds 7GBS1014RO to run with the Ecoflow Delta Pro. Which had too much inrush current. Now can run this pump remotely off a portable power station. It also solved the problem of the miter saw tripping a Daul funtion breaker QO120DFC which is the older style. Which are notorios for tripping when a saw is turned on that breaker. I do not have that issue with QO120PAFGF breaker the newer plug on neutral breakers never had an issue with them. THe gs11 stopped the tripping dead in its tracks. Great product.

      GS10 Soft starter

      I installed the soft starters and they worked as advertised with no issues right out of the box. The directions were good and covered a host of different applications. In my case, I found the wiring diagram the easiest way to install them as the written description was confusing due to the various different potential variants of applications. I will purchase more of these in the future if I have a need.

      Works as advertised

      I purchased this so my solar generator could start my water pump, it works as it should.

      Guard your tools and your electrical breaker

      GS11 20amp max works just as advertised. Plug in and see the difference with first cut.
      It works really good with my dewalt dws779.
      I would encourage anyone that works with dewalt AC plugin tools to invest in a GS11.

      Nice device

      Arrived quickly. Easy to install. Work as expected on my Dewalt DW708 miter saw: with progressive soft start, no more breaker disconnect. Very good quality. I recommend this product.
