Please, corriente de arranque ??
My try :
What context is this phrase in? That would be helpful.
There isn´t any context. It´s an item in a list !! Thank you
What type of list - of eqiupment specifications, of electrical specifications, and if so, for what type of equipment is it a list for?
It´s for electronic meters, equipment specifications. Thanks !!
'Starting Current' would be the English phrase to use. It means the current that is needed to start a piece of equipment. It often takes more current to start large motors that it takes to keep them running after they are started.
If the value is listed in Amps (amperage) this can also be called 'Starting Amps' or 'Cranking amps' (this refers to the time when motors were started manually with a hand crank)
Many thanks for your help !!
