SIGMA D+

The SIGMA D+ is a combined directional short-circuit and directional earth fault indicator for medium-distribution networks. The device is current transformer powered, thus no auxiliary supply is required. The SIGMA D+ provides additional earth fault detection methods for resonant-earthed and isolated networks.

Directional Fault Indicator

Product Features

  • CT powered directional short-circuit and directional earth fault indicator for all networks and types of neutral earthing
  • Clear signalling of fault direction
  • Detection of fault direction by capacitive voltage coupling
  • Easy and flexible parameter setting via DIP switch and USB
  • Event memory for fault evaluation
  • LED status display, multicolour

The SIGMA D+ is a combined directional short-circuit and directional earth fault indicator for medium-distribution networks. The device is current transformer powered, thus no auxiliary supply is required. The SIGMA D+ provides additional earth fault detection methods for resonant-earthed and isolated networks. Phase selective current and voltage measurements as well as phase angle measurements can be done via USB cable and SIGMA Explorer software. The voltage information will be taken from the integrated voltage detecting system, either WEGA 1.2 C, WEGA 2.2 C or WEGA 1.2 vario. Optional the voltage information can be taken from the HR interface or capacitive insulators.
