Among the devices are high-voltage reed relays responding to the current changing rate, overcurrent and overvoltage protection modules, and high-current pulse transducer for metal-oxide surge arresters.
This relay offers complete main and backup transmission line protection using line current differential, and a combination of four stepped-distance zones of phase and ground-distance elements in communications assisted schemes, with directional overcurrent element backup protection.
The need for flexible communications and convenient engineering access to settings and data is said to be addressed by the SEL-511C overcurrent/ reclosing relay, which combines complete overcurrent protection and multi-shot reclosing to protect lines and equipment using a sensitive and secure mix of phase, negative-sequence and ground overcurrent elements.
The integral motor features double insulation and overcurrent protection, and is VDE and GS approved.
Overcurrent limiting protects the system and supply from short-circuits at the load.
