The Motor's Best Friend

For reliable operation,repparttar overload relay must be located atrepparttar 133328 same temperature environment asrepparttar 133329 motor. The heating effect of repparttar 133330 bimetallic strip mechanism is supposed to representrepparttar 133331 heating ofrepparttar 133332 motor windings.

Melting alloy overload relays calibrated byrepparttar 133333 manufacturer are consideredrepparttar 133334 most reliable of allrepparttar 133335 thermal overload protective devices. However, more commonly used isrepparttar 133336 bimetallic overload relays becauserepparttar 133337 tripping current setting can be adjusted.

Allrepparttar 133338 overload relays have one major limitation - because they operate on line current, they do not directly senserepparttar 133339 motor temperatures. For normal steady running conditions, this poses no problem at all.

However, when a motor starts and stops frequently,repparttar 133340 relay may not completely protectrepparttar 133341 motor. Why is that so?

Duringrepparttar 133342 motor running,repparttar 133343 relay temperature followsrepparttar 133344 motor temperature closely. Whenrepparttar 133345 motor is off,repparttar 133346 relay tends to cool off at a faster rate because of its lower mass. After a number of starts and stops,repparttar 133347 temperatures ofrepparttar 133348 relay andrepparttar 133349 motor may drift further and further apart. Eventuallyrepparttar 133350 motor becomes hot, and yetrepparttar 133351 relay does not trip because it is still cool. The motor burns.

Frequent starting and stopping of motors is no good both electrically and mechanically.

Until next time...
