What procedure can be used to test the phase loss or overload protection on a CEP7 overload relay?
How do the CEP7(S) solid-state electronic overload relays detect and react to overload conditions in a motor? How can I reset the overload? How quickly will the overload reset?
The larger amp CEP7-EE_F/G/H overload relays for CA6 Contactors are designed in two pieces so the overload relay module can be replaced. There are two options for this replacement module.
Can you interchange or swap out a single-phase CEP7S-EE__ overload relay with a three-phase CEP7-ED1__/CEP7-EE__ solid-state overload relay? If I wire or loop the single phase power source through the legs of the CEP7 Three-phase solid state relay, will this configuration protect the motor?
Are bolts, mounting screws, washers and nuts supplied with CEP7-EEGF, CEP7-EEHF, CEP7-EEJF, CEP7-EEJG, CEP7-EEKG and CEP7-EELG overload relays? What are these hardware components used for?
How do I clear a CEP9 Overload Relay hardware fault (3 long, 7 short blink pattern)? A hardware fault can be cleared easily, but persistent problems may indicate further action is needed.
What are the different device modes and the rotary dial functions of the CEP9 Electronic Overload Relay? The CEP9 Electronic Overload Relay has four device modes to validate configuration of the device and limit when a user can configure the overload relay, perform a firmware update, and issue commands.
What is the heat dissipation rate of the CEP7 overload relays? How does it compare to other types of overload relays? Sprecher + Schuh CEP7-ED_ and CEP7(S)-EE_ overload relays dissipate heat more efficiently than traditional thermal or eutectic alloy overload relays.
The SCCR values for the CEP9-ESM Sensing modules can be found in the installation instructions included in the box. This is the manner in which UL requires the SCCRs to be specified.
What are the differences between the CEP7-EPT for thermistor protection and the old RT3/RT7 thermistor relay?
What happens when the test button is depressed on the CEP7-ED1/EE overload relays? Will activating the test button show up as a trip on the overload relay? Do the CT7N and CT8 Overload Relays react in the same manner?
One of the outstanding features of IEC type overload relays is protection of three phase motors in the event of a single phase condition; otherwise known as “open phase” or “phase failure “ in one of the motor leads.
Almost 80% of all short-circuit faults start as a low level arcing ground fault. Current sensing devices can stop a fault before it occurs.
At what time is it considered a cold start? . . . or, a hot start? What is the necessary cool down time after a hot trip? Selecting the right trip class on an overload can make a difference.
Ignoring the effects of increased inrush of premium efficiency motors could lead to nuisance tripping and lost production time.
