Disable Reclosing for Underground Faults—Knowing whether a fault is on an overhead or underground section of a feeder can be very useful in coordinating reclosing and protection schemes. A set of SEL-FT50 Transmitters can be used to enable reclosing when the fault is on the overhead portion of the feeder.
Tailor Fuse Coordination—Trip fast for main-line faults, and combine fuse-saving and fuse-blowing schemes on the same feeder. Adapt your coordination based on the SEL-FT50 fault information from laterals, branches, and the mainline.
Extend the Range to 20 Miles With SEL-3031 Serial Radio Transceivers—SEL-3031 Radios typically add less than 5 milliseconds of latency for control commands using Mirrored Bits communications.
Using fault information from the SEL-FT50 Fault Transmitters, the SEL-651R is able to make faster and more intelligent protection decisions, clearing mainline faults without waiting for fuse coordination on branch circuits or waiting for delay tripping for a fuse-blowing scheme on a lateral.
Think Milliseconds, Not Seconds
By providing individual branch inputs, the SEL Fault Transmitter and Receiver System allows you to engineer faster protection schemes that permit SEL distribution relays or recloser controls to make better decisions about tripping and reclosing. The SEL Fault Transmitter and Receiver System is an economical way to improve speed, selectivity, and safety on distribution feeders by providing adaptive coordination for any event.
Reduce Operation and Maintenance Costs
Stretch your budget and get more from your power system assets. Because faults are identified fast, the fault current duration is shortened, reducing operation and maintenance costs by extending the useful life of equipment. Implementing fuse-saving schemes results in fewer truck rolls, fewer fuse replacements, and lower operation costs.
Easy to Deploy, Easy to Maintain
The lightweight design of the SEL-FT50 makes it easy to install by simply using a hot stick to clamp it to the overhead line. The system has just a few settings, all set via control (DIP) switches. In fact, the entire system can be installed and configured without using a computer. The SEL-FT50 is rugged and line-powered, providing maintenance-free operation.
