239 Motor Protection Relay - Legacy

Manufacturing for 239 has been discontinued. . As an alternative, please refer to the 339, 859, 869 or P24 Agile relays.

The 239 relay is designed to fully protect three phase AC motors against conditions which can cause damage. In addition to motor protection, the relay has features that can protect associated mechanical equipment, give an alarm before damage results from a process malfunction, diagnose problems after a fault and allow verification of correct relay operation during routine maintenance. It is also available with a Harsh Environment Conformal Coating option.
