NP.ID 800

Directional Phase and Earth Overcurrent Protection

NPID800 provides the directional three-phase and earth fault overcurrent protection for medium and high voltage electrical networks. This multi-function and directional relay supervises phase to phase and phase to earth faults, negative sequence current, thermal state of the protected device and the good operating of the circuit breaker and its trip circuits.
As well as the usual protection functions, NP800 relays provide monitoring, measurement and recording of the electrical quantities of the network.
The relays can be set locally, using either the keypad and display or the RS232 port, or remotely using the RS485 port.
Setting, reading, measurement and recording are all available locally or remotely.

Version NPIDR 800 also integrate a 4 cycle recloser function.

  • Recloser 1 fast cycle and 3 slow cycles [79] (version NP.IDR 800)


  • Configuration and parameter setting by local MMI or off-line / on-line PC
  • Measurement of electrical quantities:
    – Instantaneous, integrated and maximum values of phase and earth currents
    – Phase voltage and residual voltage values
    – Frequency
    – Instantaneous, integrated and maximum values of active and reactive powers
    – Thermal Image Values
    – Cos φ
  • Logical selectivity on the three phase thresholds and the two earth thresholds
  • 2 setting groups, locally or remotely selectable by digital input or by the communication channel
  • Self-diagnosis: Memories, output relays, A/D converters, auxiliary supply, cycles of execution of software, hardware failure
  • 7+1 assignable output units / 8 assignable digital inputs
  • Event recording: 250 locally recorded events, 200 saved in case of loss of auxiliary supply
  • Disturbance recording according to Comtrade® format: storage of 4 recordings of 52 periods
  • Optional Communication by Modbus® RS 485 or Ethernet by Modbus/TCP
