Modbus RTU is provided as standard with a RS485 networking port.

 

Trip and Close Circuit Monitoring

The 845 relay provides Trip and Close Circui Monitoring elements


Breaker Arcing Current

This element calculates an estimate of the per-phase wear on the breaker contacts by measuring and integrating the current squared passing through the breaker contacts as an arc. When the threshold is exceeded in any phase, the relay can set an output operand and set an alarm.

Breaker Health

The 845 relay provides breaker health information by monitoring and analyzing the operation count, arcing energy of breaking current, arcing time, tripping time, closing time and spring charging time if applicable.

Integrated Electrical and DGA for Comprehensive Transformer Monitoring & Diagnostics

The Multilin 845 offers advanced transformer health monitoring and diagnostics through advanced notification of potential issues before they become critical. The Multilin 845 features detailed learned data, summarized pre/post-fault records, and integration with GE’s DGA devices to collect, trend, and analyze a transformer’s fault gasses. This enables operators to minimize costly unplanned outages and equipment failures.
