Protection relay devices

The POWR-GARD protection relay line includes ground fault relays, resistance grounding systems, motor protection relays, feeder protection relays, and supplemental monitors. According to the company, the ground fault relays use an advanced filtering technology that allows for early detection of developing ground faults without nuisance tripping. The resistance grounding systems include an optional feature that continuously monitors the integrity of the resistor to ensure the system is operating as intended. The motor protection relays offer dynamic thermal curves, integrated protection metering, and data logging function.

Rack-mount inverter

The AEP-A2000R Series of pure sign wave inverters provides 2kVA of power in a 1U rack design. Available in three standard input configurations of 12VDC, 24VDC, and 48VDC, the product features outputs that are regulated to ±3% or better. A built-in 4 msec to 6 msec automatic bypass switch allows for redundant operation from utility power if the DC supply drops out. According to the company, all models in the series feature comprehensive protection circuitry and a front panel digital display to monitor/indicate low input voltage, short circuit, input overvoltage, overtemperature, overload, and low battery. The display also indicates voltage, amperage, power, and temperature. Efficiency ranges from 86% to 92%. Class B EMI compliance allows for minimum interference to other sensitive equipment.
