Fault Passage Indicator

Fault Passage Indicators are useful for Failure Detecting and Condition-Monitoring in Power-Distribution Networks. The main function of fault passage indicating system is to identify faults occurring in the downstream section from the point of its installation in the medium voltage system. This is achieved by continuous monttoring of voltage presence and current flow In medium voltage line.


Features :
  • Permanent Earth-faults : Indication of permanent earth-faults by double blinking of the Earth fault LED.
  • 2nd short-circuit pass-through : Indication of a second short-circuit passing through by double blinking of the respective short-circuit LED
  • Separate fault response delays: The fault response delay for short-circuits & earth-faults can be adjusted individually.
  • Optional three relay contacts: The indicator can be equipped with two remote contact relays to indicate earth-faults and short-circuits separately and one contact for FPI healthy on battery.
  • Optional power supplies : 24 V DC power supply wlth lithium rechargeable battery backup.
