Integrated motor starters are required depending on the type of motor used in the applications / systems. A motor starter is an electronically operated switching device that powers up or off the motor safety.
A low-powered DC motor that runs on low voltage of 24V or less, does not require a motor starter. At times, a low-horsepower motor of 5HP or less, does not require either.
How will the motor be damaged ?
Simple, if the supply voltage is high and the resistance is low, the amount of current flowing through may be 100 amps, it will cause the motor to fail.
