Motor Controls & Protection

Electro-Com supply a wide range of motor protectors, specified to meet individual customer requirements. Sensata (formally a division of Texas Instruments) has over 75 years experience in the design and manufacture of motor protection devices. Klixon protectors are renowned for their reliability, quality and conformance to worldwide standards.

Why protect motors?

Overheating of motor insulation causes reduction in dieletric strength which can result in motor insulation damage or failure. The following are causes of motor overheating for which Klixon motor portectors can be applied to achieve protection:

  • Prolonged running overload
  • Locked rotor–mechanical / electrical failure to start
  • Low line voltage
  • High ambient temperature and lack of ventilation
