Functions

DIGSI 5 permits all functions to be configured and combined as required.

  • Motor protection functions: Startup time monitoring, thermal overload protection for stator and rotor, restart inhibit, unbalanced-load protection, load-jam protection 
  • Stator and bearing temperature monitoring via temperature sensors with optional temperature inputs or with external RTD unit. 
  • Sensitive ground-fault protection (non-directional, directional) to detect stator ground faults 
  • Directional and non-directional overcurrent protection (short- circuit protection) with additional functions 
  • Detection of ground faults of any type in compensated or isolated electrical power systems using the following functions: 3I0>, V0>, fleeting contact, cos φ, sin φ, harmonic, dir. Detection of intermittent ground faults and admittance 
  • Ground fault detection using the pulse detection method 
  • Overvoltage and undervoltage protection
  • Arc protection
  • Power protection, configurable as active or reactive power protection
  • Detection of current and voltage signals up to the 50th harmonic with high accuracy for selected protection functions (such as thermal overload protection) and operational measured values
  • Control, synchrocheck and switchgear interlocking protection
  • Graphical logic editor to create powerful automation functions in the device
  • Single line representation in small or large display
  • Integrated electrical Ethernet RJ45 for DIGSI 5 and IEC 61850 (reporting and GOOSE)
  • 2 optional pluggable communication modules, usable for different and redundant protocols (IEC 61850-8-1, IEC 60870-5-103, IEC 60870-5-104, Modbus TCP, DNP3 serial and TCP, PROFINET IO)
  • Reliable data transmission via PRP and HSR redundancy protocols
  • Extensive cyber security functionality, such as role-based access control (RBAC), protocolling security-related events or signed firmware
  • Simple, quick and secure access to device data via a standard Web browser – without additional software
  • Secure serial protection data communication, also over great distances and all available physical media (optical fiber, two-wire connections and communication networks)
  • Capturing operational measured variables and protection function measured values for the evaluation of the systems, to support commissioning, and to analyze faults
  • Integrated RTD inputs (optional) for thermal motor monitoring
  • Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) for synchrophasor measured values and IEEE C37.118 protocol
  • Powerful fault recording (buffer for a max. record time of 80 sec. at 8 kHz or 320 sec. at 2 kHz)
  • Auxiliary functions for simple tests and commissioning.

Applications

  • Protection against thermal overload of the stator from overcurrent, cooling problems or pollution
  • Protection against thermal overload of the rotor during startup due to frequent startups, excessively long startups or blocked rotor
  • Monitoring for voltage unbalance or phase outage
  • Monitoring the thermal state and the bearing temperatures with  temperature measurement
  • Detection of idling drives of pumps and compressors, for example
  • Detection of ground faults in the motor
  • Protection against motor short circuits
  • Protection against instability due to undervoltage.

Benefits

  • Compact and low-cost motor protection
  • Safety due to powerful protection functions
  • Data security and transparency over the entire lifecycle of the plant, saving time and money
  • Purposeful and easy handling of devices and software thanks to a user-friendly design
  • Increased reliability and quality of the engineering process
  • Cyber security in accordance with NERC CIP and BDEW Whitepaper requirements
  • Highest availability even under extreme environmental conditions by “conformal coating“ of electronic boards
  • Powerful communication components warrant safe and effective solutions
  • Full compatibility between IEC 61850 Editions 1 and 2
  • High investment security and low operating costs due to future-oriented system solutions.
