contrôleur présence tension moteur
motor voltage (power?) on monitor


Explanation:
Seems a bit of a mouthful whatever way you put it!

It's a circuit for deetcting that there is voltaae getting to the motor; we'd be more likely to say 'power' in EN (as long as your turn of phrase doesn't make it sounds as if it is actaully measuring the power being consumed by said motor).

'presence' is OK too, but a power-on (indicator etc.) is quite commonly used, and might be less clumsy, albeit slightly more informal!

I would tend to say 'monitor' rather than 'checker', as being a more commonly-used term in EN. One has to assume it is permanently monitoring the fact that power is actually reaching this motor...

'motor power available' monitor


Explanation:
'présence' is often translated as 'available' in this context, as here:

Control panel - All companies - [ Traducir esta página ]... status indication for control and motor power available, motor run, .... The monitor system, which adopts a continuous supervisory method that ...

Voltage detectors - All companies
Find all the manufacturers of Voltage detectors and contact them directly on Directindustry. ... The KD1E/15D is a digital HV potential indicator which can be used to indicate the presence of voltage or make voltage measurements on earthed neutral systems up to 15kV. ...

then the above can be changed to monitor of engine voltage presence [or motor voltage presence ]

disagree  Simon Cole: clearly electric power, so "engine" is less appropriate.

motor voltage detector


Explanation:
a variation on the general theme, it detects the presence of electrical power for some purpose; agree with Tony M about avoiding confusion with power consumed or even delivered by the motor, hence "voltage" may be right.
