Slim-line relays monitor three-phase motor temperature, phase sequence and phase loss.

K8AK-TS relays monitor the temperature of the motor's thermal protection. K8AK-PT monitors temperature, phase sequence and phase loss for 3-phase, 3-wire motors in one unit.

  • Specially designed for internal motor monitoring: no setting required
  • Test/Reset button for confirmation of output operation
  • Reset operation: automatic or manual
  • Robust operating temperature: -20 to 60 ⁰C

  • 22.5 mm (w) body
  • External Test/reset button
  • Selectable reset feature
