An inrush restraint feature eliminates false tripping and is standard on all units. The S.T.A.R. Faulted Circuit Indicator will ignore inrush currents caused by reclosing operations of protective devices on the system. A dead time of 200 ms will activate the inrush restraint feature
A low pass filter, also a standard feature, will prevent the S.T.A.R. Faulted Circuit Indicator from tripping on high frequency transients like those caused by capacitive discharges
The quick response time of the S.T.A.R. Current Reset Faulted Circuit Indicator provides easy coordination with current-limiting fuses and other protection devices.
Provides a reliable means of fault location and isolation
They also eliminate fault chasing methods that are costly and time consuming, and very stressful on system components exposed to fault currents. Installation can be achieved on a wide range of cable diameters with a single hotstick.
Indicates the passage of fault current
These faulted circuit indicators (FCIs) can be installed on pad-mounted distribution transformers, sector cabinets, switchgear and overhead bare conductors.
