Microprocessor Motor Protection Relays of 0,4 kV
in the Networks with Isolated Neutral
RDC-01-053, RDC-01-203

RDC-01-053, RDC-01-203 - microprocessor motor protection relays

Microprocessor relays of the RDC-01-053, RDC-01-203 series (with digital control and indication of controlled parameters) are intended for protection of electric motors of 0,4 kV in the networks with isolated neutral.

The relays RDC-01-053, RDC-01-203 are intended for protection of three-phase asynchronous electric motors, including submersible pumps, 3x127/220 V or 3x220/380 V (phase/linear) from undesirable consequences:

  • overload;
  • asymmetry of loading;
  • underrunning;
  • supply overvoltage;
  • reduction of supply voltage;
  • wrong phase rotation;
  • reduction of insulation resistance of motor coils before start-up and switching of electric circuits at achieving of the one of the controlled parameters of previously programmed level.

At the same time except protective functions the relay has a number of important service functions:

  • possibility of monitoring of the following parameters:
       - consumption current for each phase (IA, IB, IC);
       - network voltages for each phase (UA, UB, UC);
       - network frequency;
       - counter of motor term of life;
       - anomalies in network and the reasons of the taken place critical conditions;
  • the controlled number of automatic start-ups after emergency shutdown (up to five start-ups with time interval between repeated start-ups 15 s);
  • protection of the controlled parameters against unauthorized access (password);
  • possibility of cleaning of the kept parameters about accident without shutdown of the device.

Memory of settings is non-volatile and can keep values during all term of operation.
Settings and parameters are used individually for each electric motor, and it provides its reliable protection and increases operation term.
Service conditions: for modification of U3: –40…+55 °С; for modification of T3: –10…+55 °С.
At current overloading shutdown delay time depends on time of starting of the electric motor and value of current overloading.
Relay outside dimension: 140х70х137 mm.

SUZD - the stations of control of electric motors
SUZD - the stations of control of electric motors

At the enterprise on the basis of the protection devices of the RDC series the stations of control of electric motors are produced. These stations are intended for work with the three-phase asynchronous motors 550 W – 350 kW of various producers. The stations are made according to various schemes with a possibility of a full complete set of electric equipment and are intended for automatic and manual control, automation, scheduling and also in various systems of water supply where asynchronous motors are used. The stations automatically support the set pressure in the system of water supply or the set level in the tank, provide complex protection of the electric motor against emergency operation.
