High impedance relay Reyrolle 7PG23


One relay per phase can be applied to detect both phase and earth faults e.g. on reactors and stator windings of large machines.


The relay is a voltage operating device and has a user selectable operate voltage setting. The relay can be used in conjunction with an external shunt setting resistor where a higher operating current is required. An integral non-linear resistor limits over-voltages occurring during system faults. Operation flag indicator. Relays are housed in size E3 cases.
