EARTH-FAULT indicator


The earth-fault indicator type TERRA-C can be used in radial medium voltage networks with one input and open-ring networks. The network has to be solidly earthed or low resistance-earthed. The indication of the earth-fault is done by a flag indicator and an LED.
The sensors are connected to the indication unit by copper cables. The sensors must be mounted on screened cables. Both sensors are divisible and can be retrofitted on the cable.
The device is power supplied by super capacitors. The super capacitors can be charged by a 230V AC power supply which can fail during fault situations and/or a special power supply CT which is mounted onto a single phase. The super capacitors are used to flash an internal LED and optionally also an external blinking lamp. Due to the bistable flag indication an unambiguous indication is guaranteed even if the load of the super capacitors is drained.

The earth-fault indicator type TERRA-C consists of:

– One display unit for displaying the earth-fault
– One sensor type SE for detecting the earth-fault
– Optionally: one power supply CT
