# Thermistor motor protection relay for thermal protection

In some of my induction motors PTC thermistor is available for thermal protection which will be integrated to thermistor motor protection relay. There are three PTC thermistors connected in series in single motor. Maximum measuring temperature and voltage for PTC thermistor are 150 degree and 2.5Vdc. In that case can I use LT3SM00M Schneider thermistor motor protection relay for tripping the motor.

As per datasheet, voltage at terminals in the thermistor circuit:

Normal operation: R=1500 ohms; V < 2.5 Conforming to IEC 34-11-2 R=4000 ohm and V < 7.5

Here maximum measuring voltage of my motor thermistor terminal is 2.5Vdc. So as per datasheet of LT3SM00M for less then 2.5V it will have normal operation and after 2.5V it will trip the circuit, but what does it mean by "Conforming to IEC 34-11-2, R=4000 ohm and V < 7.5." Please help me in this regard. Is there any consideration of R=4000 ohm and V < 7.5 for my circuit.

• This seems to be a question about the use of a specific product.The product literature should provide sufficient guidance. If there is something in the literature that you don't understand, please provide a link to that and ask a more specific question. – Charles Cowie Feb 7 at 14:52
