Two, Three or Four Winding Protection for Transformers of All Sizes

June 30, 2008
Beckwith Electric's Transformer Protection System M-3311A provides protection, control, monitoring and user interface functions for two, three or four-winding transformers

Beckwith Electric's Transformer Protection System M-3311A provides protection, control, monitoring and user interface functions for two, three or four-winding transformers. The system includes restrained and unrestrained differential protection, overcurrent protection, and optional voltage, and underfrequency protection. Multiple setpoint groups and user-implementable logic schemes provide flexibility. Dual RS-232 ports and an RS-485 port provide user-interface capabilities.

Optional modules include the HMI module for front-panel operation and the target module to indicate trip target status and redundant power supply. The M-3311A can be purchased as a differential and overcurrent relay or with the Optional Voltage Protection Package. The M-3826 IPScom Communications Software is included for direct serial or remote communication access. Waveform data can be downloaded using IPScom® while the M-3801D IPSplot PLUS Oscillographic Analysis Software allows for plotting and printing of the downloaded oscillographic data.
