Transformer differential protection

Transformer differential protection – SIPROTEC 7UT85

SIPROTEC 7UT85

The SIPROTEC 7UT85 transformer differential protection device has been designed specifically for the protection of two-winding transformers (2 sides). It is the main protection for the transformer and contains many other protection and monitoring functions. The additional protection functions can also be used as backup protection for subsequent protected objects (such as cables, lines, shunt reactor). In this process, you are also supported by the modular expandability of the hardware. With its modular structure, flexibility and the powerful DIGSI 5 engineering tool, SIPROTEC 7UT85 offers future-oriented solutions for protection, control, automation, monitoring and PQ basic.
