Three-Phase Monitor Relays

Implementing Communication in Smart Connected Control Systems

Wednesday: February 17, 2021

Using smart devices in a connected communication network, with HMI displays, SCADA monitoring and IoT devices, can create a wealth of data for use in the cloud. Products like Macromatic's PC Series empower systems with a rich variety of data including system faults, line voltages, and operating frequency.

The Heart of IoT Systems

Monday: February 1, 2021

New products that embed communication in phase monitor relays can dramatically change the way equipment is monitored and controlled in smart network control systems. These smart devices give users both control and data connectivity in one device for a fraction of the cost of installing a power monitor.

The Next Industrial Revolution

What Is Phase Unbalance? How Can I Protect My Equipment?

Monday: October 14, 2019

Phase unbalance of a three-phase system exists when one or more of the line-to-line voltages in a three-phase system are mismatched. Line-to-line voltages typically vary by a few volts, but a difference that exceeds 1% can damage motors and equipment. How Can I Protect My Equipment?

What type of power systems can Macromatic relays protect?

Tuesday: October 1, 2019

Macromatic devices work on many systems. Here are the guidelines and recommended connections for Open Delta, Corner Grounded and High Leg (Red Leg, Wild Leg) Delta systems. Contact Macromatic for technical information on other systems.

What Is Undervoltage? How Can I Protect My Equipment?

Wednesday: September 25, 2019

What Is Undervoltage? How Can I Protect My Equipment? Undervoltage occurs when the average voltage of a three-phase power system drops below intended levels, and is sometimes referred to as a brown-out. Operating in Undervoltage conditions can drastically reduce the life of the electromechanical equipment and lead to premature failure.

What is a Phase Loss? How can I protect my equipment?

Tuesday: September 17, 2019

When one phase of a three-phase system is lost, a phase loss occurs. This is also called 'single phasing'. What causes a phase loss? How can this condition be monitored and equipment failure and downtime be prevented?

Three-Phase Monitor Relays: What Motor Do You Need to Protect?

Wednesday: August 21, 2019

Macromatic Plug-In Three-Phase Monitor Relays provide protection for motors against premature failure caused by voltage faults. This series of relays retain fault indication and continue to monitor all voltages even with a lost phase.

Does my Phase Monitor Relay require a Short Circuit Current Rating?

Tuesday: July 2, 2019

Calculating the Short Circuit Current Rating for control panels requires establishing the SCCR for each of the individual, relevant power circuit components. What about the Phase Monitor Relay used to measure the circuit voltage?
