Manual Reset (MR) Fault Indicators employ a magnetic principle using two magnetic elements. One is the yoke which is demagnetized by the fault current, allowing the other to act on the display and cause a reflective red target to show. The target is held in place magnetically until the MR is reset using the Manual Reset Tool.
The MR is secured to the line using over-center toggle clamps and may be applied or removed with a hot stick. MR Fault Indicators have a response time of 12 ms at the trip rating. The display has a red reflective target area of 3.3 square centimeters.
After a fault occurs, use an MR or Manual Button Fault Indicator (MB) before reclosing for inexpensive, efficient fault location.
Line-powered, battery free.
The MR model is available in a convenient kit to keep on a truck. The kit includes three MRs and a Manual Reset Tool in a sturdy, lightweight carrying case.
MR models are also applicable on overhead systems.
