SIGMA F+E 2.0 – Autumn 2016

By using the new current sensors, an upgrade to a higher indicator generation is possible.

Short-Circuit and Earth Fault Indicator

Product Features

  • Short-circuit and earth fault detection from only 3 single-phase current sensors
  • Phase-selective fault indication and Fault signalling
  • Subsequent retrofitting to SIGMA F+E 3, SIGMA D/D+/D++, ComPass A/B possible
  • Load-dependent self-adjustment of fixed values
  • Single- and double flashing mode for ring and radial operated distribution networks

 

The SIGMA F+E 2.0 device is a combined short-circuit and earth fault indicator. Due to the measuring principle the earth fault indication is suitable for networks with low-impedance or solidly earthed neutral.

When the phase current exceeds the preset trip current level and the period of the preset response delay, or when the phase current exceeds the previously flowing operating current by a defined factor (self-adjustment), the fault-affected phase will be indicated by a bright flashing LED. At the same time, the remote signal contact will be activated. A double flashing LED signals a second fault that has occurred within the reset time, e. g. by automatic re-closure. The device provides automatic reset options, either after expiry of a preset time or by closing an external input contact, or it can be reset manually by pressing the “Test“ button. A function test can also be carried out either by the “Test” button or an external input contact.

The switches on the front face of the device are used to adjust trip current values, response delay thresholds, and periods for timed reset, as well as the required remote signal contact type (permanent or momentary contact).

Equipment set:

1 Display unit (plug-in/surface mount housing)
2 Short-circuit current transformers
1 Summation current transformer
