Instantaneous earth fault element


For installations where the earth fault element is required to have a sensitive
setting whilst remaining stable on heavy through faults, the use of a stabilising
resistor is recommended, the value of which will vary according to the specific
application. If assistance is required in selecting the appropriate value,
please consult the Applications Department of GEC ALSTHOM T&D Protection
& Control.

Thermal withstand
Continuous withstand 2 x Is or 2.6 x In whichever is lower,
with a minimum of 1 x In

Operation indicators Each measuring board is fitted with


two red led indicators, one showing
time delayed operation and the other
showing instantaneus operation.
The reset button provided on the
frontplate resets all the operation
indicators.
The green timer start indicator
illuminates when the input current
exceeds the setting current Is to
facilitate testing of the module.
This indicator is self resetting.
Led covers are available to eliminate
any undesired led indication.

Directional control Directional control can be exercised


over each pole individually by
connecting the output contact of a
relay type METI across appropriate
case terminals.

Note: The directional control circuits are isolated from all other circuits but are
electrically connected to the relay case. These circuits must not, therefore,
be insulation or impulse tested to the case.
