The new DCRL3 and DCRL5 power factor controllers provide 3 and 5 built-in steps respectively to connect capacitor banks. If required, two extra steps can be added by installing the EXP1006 expansion module to obtain a maximum of 7 steps.
The backlit icon LCD display shows symbols and texts clearly and intuitive present the status. The controllers are equipped with all the functions and alarms to ensure long capacitor bank life. An optical communication port for use with CX01 or CX02 dongles is available on the front panel, for controller programming and to safely access data for diagnostics and statistics, without having to disconnect and open the electrical panel.
The DCRL Series was developed with advanced functionality and produced with a dedicated ultra-compact housing. It combines modern front design with practical mounting and expandability (EXP… modules).
– Backlit icon LCD with excellent information display. – Alarm codes with scrolling texts, programmable in 6 languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese). – Connection in single or three phase lines and co-generation systems with 4-quadrant operation. – Voltage measurement input independent of supply and which can be used in medium-voltage lines with VTs. – Drastic reduction in the number of switching operations. – Balanced use of steps with same power rating. – Measurement of reactive power installed for each step. – Capacitor over current protection. – Panel over temperature protection via internal sensor. – Accurate micro-breaking protection. – Vast choice of measurements available, including voltage and current THD with single harmonic analysis up to the 15th order. – Wide voltage measurement range. – High accuracy of true root mean square (TRMS) measurements. – Front optical USB (CX 01) and Wi-Fi (CX 02) communication port for PC, smartphone and tablet connection. – Compatible with ETHERNET communication modules EXP1013 (only for DCRL 8). – Compatible with Synergy supervision software, Express remote control and configuration software and with the sam1 application for android/iOS. – Customisation with label on front (only for DCRL 8).
