CHICAGO, Jun 15, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Littelfuse,
Inc., a leading expert in electrical safety, added a short video
to its POWR-GARD Electrical Products Web site to demonstrate a reliable
and practical way to protect small- to medium-horsepower motors and
pumps using one of the three new Littelfuse POWR-GARD electronic
overload relays, the PGR-6130, PGR-6150 or PGR-6800.

“The new video
briefly demonstrates how these electronic overload relays can help
customers prevent unscheduled shutdowns and lost productivity by
detecting harmful electrical conditions before damage occurs,” said Eva
Jelezova, Marketing Manager, Littelfuse POWR-GARD Protection Relays.
“Each of these relays offers a different combination of protective
functions to meet application-specific needs.”

The PGR-6130
Electronic Overload Relay easily replaces older style overload
devices and offers reliable motor-overload protection for low-voltage,
low-horsepower motors.

The PGR-6150
Motor Protection System protects low-voltage, low- to
medium-horsepower motors from overload, undercurrent, overcurrent, jam,
overtemperature, phase loss, phase reverse, and phase unbalance. It also
features an optional interface for remote operation.

The PGR-6800
Pump Protection Relay provides pump-specific functions such as
undercurrent and can be used to replace and consolidate older relays and
low-level sensors.
