11WRIA5 - 11 pin plug in current sensing relay AC current only.
11WRID5 - 11 pin plug in current sensing relay DC current only.
Suffix A - With delay to energise on a rising current.
Suffix C - With delay to de-energise on a falling current.
“With delay to energise on a rising current”. The output relay delays to energise for up to 10 secs when the monitored current rises above the set level as selected by the front potentiometer. It will de-energise when the current falls below the set level less any hysteresis adjustable 5 to 50% against the set level. De-energisation will also occur if the auxiliary supply is lost. The units can be set to be either “manual” or “auto” reset (latched or non latched), achieved by a link or no link between terminals or pins 9 & 11. For “manual” reset (latched) a link is required, when reaching the set level plus the set time delay the relay will latch and the link will need to be opened or the auxiliary supply removed to achieve a reset. Reset it only possible if the monitored current has fallen below the set level minus the set hysteresis.
“With delay to de-energise on a falling current”. The output relay will energise when the monitored current reaches the set level as set via the potentiometer. The output relay will de-energise up to 10 secs after the monitored current has fallen and remains below the set hysteresis, adjustable 5 to 50% of the set current level. Should the auxiliary supply be lost the output relay will also de-energise. Whilst the latch circuit is fitted to the units on the 5C versions it cannot be utilised and therefore link pin 9 & 11 should be left open.
Use of Current Transformers
The three current ranges are determined by wiring to different terminals. For monitoring currents above 10 Amps AC a current transformer is required. It is recommended that preferably a 1 Amp secondary current transformer is used and connected to the 50mA to 1 Amp input range, thus giving 100% resolution. A range of 1 Amp secondary CT’s are available from our CT section.
Adjustable Time Delay on Tripping
The current relays have an adjustable 0.1-10 sec delay on tripping timer which activates every time the set level is exceeded, or falls below the set level, as the case may be. This feature is extremely useful on applications where the control circuit is always live.
DC Auxiliary Supply Versions
DC auxiliary supply versions are as standard non isolated. For these versions the supply and the measured current must be isolated from each other and must not exceed 50V DC. On request at extra cost isolated versions can be manufactured utilising internally a DC to DC converter.
