Eaton launches Power Xpert C445
By Renée Francoeur
October 19, 2015 – Eaton says its new Power Xpert C445 intelligent motor management and protection relay has been designed for global heavy industrial and continuous process customers. The Eaton-engineered, electronic overload is designed to help improve energy awareness over traditional control methods, improve operator safety, and support reliable operations through enhanced diagnostics, the company added.
The Power Xpert C445 incorporates line, load, and motor monitoring and protection; patented control and diagnostics algorithms; and onboard industrial communication protocols. As a preventive diagnostic solution, the C445 helps automate maintenance through remote monitoring and troubleshooting that can help reduce the need for scheduled maintenance, according to Eaton.
The C445 is the third model available in the C400 Series of Advanced Motor Protection.
The C445 is Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant and meets standards from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
