Product Application

In general, the solid state overload relays can be used with high efficiency motors.  The manufacturer of the motor should first be consulted though as the initial inrush can sometimes be sufficient to nuisance trip the relay on start up.  Compare the inrush of the motor to the trip curves specified by the instruction bulletin for the relay to make an absolute determination.
