Electric motors are used in a variety of industrial applications for controlling movements. Motors are often started and reversed using classic, mechanical protective circuits. These often require a great deal of space as well as a lot of wiring effort. The service life of the devices is also limited. Costly sensor technology is often required to collect important motor and process data.
