Protection devices for your success

For over a century, innovative protection relay and control technology from Siemens has ensured a reliable power supply as well as secure and efficient grid operations. The comprehensive range of products and solutions meets all conceivable requirements. Here are some examples.

Arc Protection

Arc fault protection is a relatively new technique employed for the fast clearance of arcing faults on busbars and within metal clad switchgear & associated cable boxes. The arc is detected using an optical sensor & the signal input to a protection device which also monitors the load current on the system. Conventional current based protection techniques are at times challenged by the nature of arcing faults, and can result in slow protection clearance times. Slow protection clearance times increase the risk to nearby personnel and increase the degree of damage to plant and equipment. By employing an optical detection technique, Arc Fault Protection results in fast clearance of arcing faults.

Engineering Software DIGSI 5

DIGSI 5 is the versatile engineering tool for parameterization, commissioning and operating all SIPROTEC 5 devices. Its innovative user interface includes context-sensitive user instructions. Simple connection to the device via USB enables you to work with a device easily and efficiently. The full capabilities of DIGSI 5 are revealed when you connect it to a network of protection devices: Then you can work with all of the devices in a substation in one project.

DIGSI 5 offers superior usability and is optimized for your work processes. Only the information you actually need to carry out your tasks is shown. These can be reduced further using expanded filter mechanisms. The consistent use of sophisticated, uniform mechanisms in the user interfaces requires less training.
