S&C has upgraded Coordinaide — The S&C Protection and Coordination Assistant. It’s available now on the S&C website.
The IntelliRupter PulseCloser application has been expanded to include a sensitive earth fault time-overcurrent protection element. Users can now plot up to 25 TCC curves, for a given protection profile and direction, and visually confirm selectivity with both upstream and downstream protective devices. Once the curves are selected, the user can save their parameters to a SetPoints Group File, for uploading to the IntelliRupter control. The user can also download a SetPoints Group File from a control and open it in Coordinaide.
A Coordinaide link appears in the “Support” section of the home page. To launch Coordinaide, just click this link. Additional links appear on applicable product pages (e.g., Type XS Fuse Cutouts, Positrol Fuse Links, etc.). These links are on the left-hand side of the page in the “Helpful Links” section, immediately above the “TCC Curves” link.
Clicking the link brings up Coordinaide’s opening page. It contains a brief description of the protection applications Coordinaide can handle. Coordinaide helps select and apply S&C fuses, Fault Tamer Fuse Limiters, TripSaver Dropout Reclosers, Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear, and IntelliRupter PulseClosers.
