Electric motors are the backbone to today's modern industry.
They provide the mechanical energy needed for most manufacturing processes.
Over the last 100 years, many government agencies have imposed strict requirements for implementing some form of thermal overload protection for all electric motors to help prevent electric motors from causing damage or physical harm.
From time to time, a motor protection device will cause an electric motor to stop working due to improper wiring, an electrical issue, a mechanical anomaly, or internal motor damage. When an unplanned event like this occurs, how does your facility handle this situation?
Anytime a critical motor expectantly stops your process, what is the cost of this lost production?
There are many different types of motor protection devices available that meet the required government regulations. These protection devices vary in size, features, and price. How do you choose the right type of motor protection for your manufacturing facility?
