Benshaw Motor Protection Devices

One of the many advantages of the Benshaw MX product line is the added ability of motor protection. Starting and running the motor is a critical part of the process, however protecting the motor is just as important. Downtime, long lead times, and the high cost of motors and labor can all be very costly to your end users. By adding MPR (motor protection relays), you can allow the proper shutdown sequence of the motor before problems or sever damage occurs. Frequently, third party devices are added to our systems which can significantly increase the amount of time, programming, installation, hardware and cost.

Fortunately, the Benshaw MX Series offers a very comprehensive set of built-in motor protection features. The benefits of having no additional hardware required, simple programming, and no additional cost make it the perfect solution!

Key features include:

  • Adjustable over/under voltage protection
  • Under-Current Detection
  • Phase Rotation
  • Instantaneous electronic over-current trip
  • Complete RTD monitoring and alarming
