SEL-710-5 Motor Protection Relay

Protect asynchronous (induction) and synchronous motors with one SEL-710-5 Motor Protection Relay. Features include broken rotor bar detection and variable-frequency drive (VFD) support as well as options for arc-flash detection, differential protection, and synchronous motor protection. The synchronous option supports power factor regulation and also includes, at no additional cost, a voltage divider accessory to interface with the motor excitation system. Together with the industry’s best AccuTrack Thermal Model, these new features combine to provide a great solution for all of your motor protection applications.

 

Motor Protection—Protect a full range of medium-voltage, three-phase induction and synchronous motors. The slip-dependent thermal model (AccuTrack) allows independent thermal protection of both the rotor and stator.

Arc-Flash Mitigation—Select optional arc-flash detection (AFD) inputs for overcurrent-supervised arc-flash protection. Reduce incident energy further by selecting high-speed, high-current interrupting output contacts to achieve secure, reliable, and fast arc-flash tripping.

Differential Protection—Configure current differential elements for more comprehensive protection of large, high-value motors.

Broken Rotor Bar Detection—Detect broken rotor bars in squirrel-cage induction motors by implementing the optional spectrum analysis features. Minimize repair costs and downtime by detecting rotor bar problems before they cause catastrophic motor failure.

Synchronous Motors—Protect synchronous motors (brush and brushless). Use the optional inputs for measuring and controlling excitation system signals on brushed motors. Regulate power factor using digital or analog outputs of the relay connected directly to the excitation system.

Front-Panel Flexibility—Improve functional control and situational awareness with the programmable auxiliary buttons, LEDs, and configurable labels.

Metering and Monitoring—Analyze SER reports and oscillographic event reports for rapid commissioning, testing, and post-fault diagnostics. Use the SEL-710-5 Relay’s motor start report, motor start trending, load profile monitoring, motor operating statistics, and demand metering features to reduce separately mounted metering/monitoring devices.

Integration—Select from a variety of communications ports and protocols to integrate SEL-710-5 Relays into supervisory or coordinated protection and control systems.
