What is a motor management relay?

A motor management relay, such as Eaton's C445 Power Xpert does much more than just provide protective parameters to a motor configuration.

Many protective devices provide such features as overload, over and under voltage protection, phase loss conditions, current monitoring, and power monitoring parameters to name only a few.

Add the C445's capability to control motor start and stop contactors used in inline, two-speed, star-delta, and auto transformer motor starters and you have a streamlined system not only to protect but also to provide optimum control over electric motors. Additionally, the C445 has the ability to safety restart motors in the event of mains power outages.
