New PowerLogic® Sepam Series 80 Made For Demanding Environments
Schneider Electric's digital relay improves reliability and protection
PALATINE, Ill. - AUGUST 12, 2005 - Schneider Electric's PowerLogic® Sepam Series 80 digital relay was designed with one goal in mind: to meet or exceed the reliability and protection requirements of difficult applications in demanding environments. It is ideal for critical power applications, such as standby generators for hospitals, wastewater treatment plants, data centers and telecommunication facilities.
The Series 80 relay represents the new high end of the Sepam range. "We've made sure our units have the ability to withstand environmental electromagnetic disturbances, vibration, power system transients and even salt spray," Hardy King, Schneider Electric, said.
Other features include:
Standardized footprint for all Series 80 relay types allows uniform integration into electrical equipment protecting motors; generators; feeders, mains and ties; transformers, buses and capacitor banks.
Three user interface choices - none, backlit LCD, or oversized mimic/phasor diagram LCD display.
Expanded logic equation capabilities for increased customization of control and protection.
Percentage-restraint current differential protection for two-winding transformers and machines; uses neural network technology.
Battery backup retains historical and fault data on power loss.
Self-testing feature that monitors internal health.
Easy-to-learn software with graphical aids for configuration of hardware, sensors, and protective schemes.
Two options for custom programming - Boolean equations and ladder logic.
Phase-shift diagnostic data display and analysis for verification of CT and VT connections and performance.
