More economical than a PT, the SEL-MW can be used in place of PTs to detect system voltage loss where exact system voltage measurement reporting is not required. The SEL-MW installs easily on capacitive test points of distribution elbows. It learns and adapts to the unique voltage output level of the capacitive test points to minimize and simplify product calibration for the application.
SEL-MWs are built tough for dependable operation in harsh environments and are economical in eliminating the need for potential transformers or analog sensors.
Automatic Source Transfers—Apply SEL-MWs in automatic source transfer applications to trigger the operation of the source transfer switchgear upon a loss of source voltage. The SEL-MW detects a loss of system voltage on the primary source that feeds mission-critical loads. Upon detection of the voltage loss, the SEL-MW will open its auxiliary contact, signaling a remote terminal unit (RTU) to initiate a transfer to a backup source.
