NOARK Electric offers a complete range of 3 pole Molded Case Motor Circuit Protectors
(MCPs, magnetic only) which are used to protect the three phase asynchronous motors in six frame sizes: M1M – 150 A, M2M – 250 A, M3M – 400 A, M4M – 600 A, M5M – 800 A, and M6M – 1,200 A.
Each frame size offers a range of interrupting voltage ratings from 240-690 Vac.
This series MCP conforms to global standards that include UL 489, CSA C22.2 No 5 and IEC
The traditional system used for this purpose is based on three different devices: a circuit
breaker for protection against short-circuit, a thermal relay for protection against overload
and phase loss or unbalance of phase, and a contactor for motor switching.
In particular, when selecting these devices, different factors must be taken into consideration, such as:
