With electric motors playing such key roles in water and wastewater treatment and water distribution operations, protecting those motors is fundamental to keeping processes flowing smoothly. In this Water Talk interview, Steve Zbytowski, product manager for motor protection and soft starters with Eaton, shares his insights on ground-fault identification that helps maintenance personnel pinpoint exactly where the fault is and react to remedy the situation quickly. He also relates how complementary Internet of Things (IoT) network communication improves data collection, making it easier to manage field-monitoring and troubleshooting efforts and improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of motor operation.
