Electrical Device?

Hi All,

Ya'll have about got me talked into upgrading my PVC air lines. When I do, I want to move my compressor to my back garage (out of earshot) about 60 feet farther out from the house. I'm concerned that it may burn up if something happens and I can't hear it (although chances are much slimmer with metal piping vs PVC).

I'm looking for a breaker or switch that can permanently remove power (trip) after it's attached device (compressor) pulls power for 10 minutes or so without cycling, then requires a manual reset. This could prevent the compressor from overheating and possibly causing a fire. Probably overkill, but since I'm redoing things anyway...
