Product Description

ABB RXTCS Auxiliary Relay-Trip circuit supervision relay

The supervision relay type ABB RXTCS Auxiliary Relay or electromechanical relay is intended for a continuous supervision of circuit breaker trip circuit and gives an alarm for loss of auxiliary supply, faults on the trip-coil or its wires independent of the breaker position, faults on the breaker auxiliary contacts and faults in the supervision relay itself.

ABB RXTCS Features

  • Continuous supervision of complete trip circuit independent of the circuit breaker position.
  • Detects faults in the supervised circuits, such as loss of voltage, circuit breakage, contact degeneration in connections and resistivity increases in wires, contacts and coils
  • Low-level measuring current enables application in sensitive or high resistance circuits
  • Operation delayed to avoid spurious signals, for instance, on circuit breaker operation
  • Operation indication by a single dual colour LED
  • Complete range of rated voltages either ac or dc
  • Galvanic isolation is possible between auxiliary source and supervised circuit
  • Very low burden on auxiliary source

RXTCS electromechanical relay Application

In a protection system the tripping of circuit breaker is crucial. Should an interruption occur in a trip circuit a possible network fault would not be disconnected and the fault would have to be cleared by another protection upstreams in the power system. The supervision function is particularly important when there is only one tripping coil and CB tripping is vital, for instance, for generator circuit breakers or other important circuit breaker in distribution networks.

Description
The supervision relay RXTCS is designed to be used for the supervision of trip circuits and other important control and monitoring circuits. Block diagram of the relay is shown in Fig. 1. The supervision function is based on low-level (~ 3 mA) current injection principle. The injected current is sensed by two opto-couplers. The supervision function in three steady states of circuit breaker-trip circuit can be seen from fig.2, 3 and 4. In normal condition the indicator LED glows green and output relays are in picked-up condition.

If in the event of a fault, the measuring current goes below the operating value of the relay (0.3 - 0.7 mA) or completely stops flowing, the supervision relay operates (drops-off) after a delay of 0.6 sec and the indicator LED turns red. The supervision relay, for its functioning requires and auxiliary voltage (ac or dc) of rated value to be connected to the terminals 11 and 12. This voltage can be the same as that of the supervised circuit or it could be a separate source with same magnitude (ac or dc). Should a fault occur in the auxiliary voltage supply the LED does not glow and the output relay drops off. Relays with differing rated voltage for supervision circuit and auxiliary supply can be supplied as special execution.

SUPERVISION RELAY

The supervision relay type TCS is intended for a continuous supervision of circuit breaker trip circuit and gives an alarm for loss of auxiliary supply, faults on the trip coil or its wires independent of the breaker position, faults on the breaker auxiliary contacts and faults in the supervision relay. The trip circuit supervision is a crucial requirements as its failure can cause disconnect of possible network fault and eventually have to be cleared by another upstream protection.  In normal condition, the indicator LE D glows green and output relays are in picked-up condition. In the event of a fault, the supervision relay operates (drops-off) after a delay of 0.6 sec and the indicator LED turns red.
