This is clearly a more complicated system than the DOL type. However, the control system is essentially the same. On start-up, the star contactor, electronic timer and the main contactor are all energized.

APPROVED TEST LAMPS AND VOLTAGE INDICATORS Search your tool boxes; find, with little difficulty one would suspect, your ‘neon screwdriver’ or ‘testascope’; locate a very deep pond; and drop it in! Imagine actually allowing electric current at low voltage (50–1000 V AC) to pass through one’s body in order to activate a test lamp! It only takes around 10–15 mA to cause severe electric shock, and 50 mA (1/20th of an ampere) to kill. Apart from the fact that such a device will register any voltage from about 5 V upwards, the safety of the user depends entirely on the integrity of the current-limiting resistor in the unit.
