Solutions   for   Protecting   andManaging   the   Electrical   Network


Power, voltage and frequency relay

NPW800 performs the measurement of the apparent (S), active (P) and reactive (Q) power of 3 or 4 wire electrical networks. The monitoring of the energy flow direction is completed by the management of power factor, tangent φ and by the supervision of network voltage and frequency.
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.

    – Instantaneous and integrated values of phase currents and S, P, Q power
    – Values, according to the wiring, phase to phase or phase to neutral and the residual voltage
    – Frequency
    – Power factor, Cosφ
    – Instantaneous value of tangent φ
  • 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
