SEL 710 SEL Motor Protection Relay

SEL recommends selecting the SEL-710-5 SEL Motor Protection Relay in place of the SEL-710. The SEL-710-5 offers additional protection and communications options, such as incipient fault detection, vibration monitoring, and EtherNet/IP. It is also available with a color touchscreen display.

  • Calculate the thermal energy in the motor to determine maximum safe start times with full motor protection. Accurate temperature tracking also minimizes the time needed between starts.
  • Use the four programmable pushbuttons on the front panel for quick, personalized control, including factory default start and stop functions.
  • Provide overcurrent, thermal overload, undercurrent, current unbalance, current differential, phase loss, ground fault, and over- or underfrequency protection and much more.
  • Choose from single or dual copper or fiber-optic Ethernet, Modbus® TCP,
  • IEC 61850, Modbus Serial, EIA-232, EIA-485, Telnet, and FTP protocols. Pick
  • one or multiple connections, including multiple Modbus sessions for the custom configuration of your application.
  • Apply the SEL-710 Motor Protection Relay in extreme conditions, with an operating temperature range of –40° to +85°C (–40° to +185°F). The SEL-710 is designed and tested to exceed applicable standards, including those for
  • vibration, electromagnetic compatibility, and adverse environmental conditions.


  • Motor protection and control for a variety of drives
  • Application-specific standard configurations resulting in a shorter relay setup and commissioning time
  • Preconfigured solutions for utility distribution and industrial applications
