Basler Electric Launches New Relay

May 17, 2011 -- Basler Electric introduces the BE1-11m, the company's newest and most comprehensive multifunction protective relay. The BE1-11m provides motorprotection, control and monitoring for large and medium motors and critical motor processes. This new relay is both easy to configure and easy to use. Some featured applications include petroleum drilling and refining, pulp and paper mills, water treatment plants, chemical plants and utility power generation facilities.

The BE1-11m exhibits Basler's strong retrofit capabilities and is designed to be mounted in existing S1 cutouts to replace many of the existing motor protection relays found in service without modifying or replacing the panel. The robust BE1-11m features ring lug terminals for all relay connections.

The BE1-11m offers complete current-based thermal motor protection. This intuitive thermal model includes unbalanced current biasing, custom voltage dependent curves, RTD biasing, and emergency start override. The BE1-11m features multifunction current, voltage, frequency, power and differential protection elements. The BE1-11m also provides users with oscillography, sequential events recording, starting and running data, breaker- and trip-circuit monitoring data for metering maintenance, and operational analysis.

The BE1-11m is easily configured using Basler's free BESTCOMSPlus™ software, which simplifies the commissioning process with its graphical interface for setting the relay and configuring a protection and control scheme for your specific application. A USB port or an optional Ethernet port enables local communication between the relay and a PC operating with the BESTCOMSPlus™ software.
