Tools to simplify design and implementation With the Guiding System, you have a comprehensive range of tools - the Guiding Tools - that will help you increase your product knowledge and product utilisation. Of course this is in compliance with current standards and procedures. These tools include technical booklets and guides, design aid software, training courses, etc. and are regularly updated.

For a genuine partnership with you Because each electrical installation is unique, there is no standard solution. With the Guiding System, the variety of combinations allows for genuine customisation solutions. You can create and implement electrical installations to meet your creative requirements and design knowledge. You and Merlin Gerins Guiding System form a genuine partnership. For more details on the Guiding System, consult www.merlin-gerin.com

A consistent design of offers from Medium Voltage to Low Voltage

All Merlin Gerin offers are designed according to electrical, mechanical and communication consistency rules. The products express this consistency by their overall design and shared ergonomics.
Electrical consistency: Each product complies with or enhances system performance at coordination level: breaking capacity, Isc, temperature rise, etc. for more safety, continuity of supply (discrimination) or economic optimisation (cascading). The leading edge technologies employed in Merlin Gerins Guiding System ensure high performance levels in discrimination and cascading of protection devices, electrodynamic withstand of switches and current distributors, heat loss of devices, distribution blocks and enclosures. Likewise, inter-product ElectroMagnetic Compatibilty (EMC) is guaranteed.

Discrimination guarantees co-ordination between the operating characteristics of serial-connected circuit-breakers. Should a fault occurs downstream, only the circuit-breaker placed immediately upstream from the fault will trip.

Mechanical consistency: Each product adopts dimensional standards simplifying and optimising its use within the system. It shares the same accessories and auxiliaries and complies with global ergonomic choices (utilisation mode, operating mode, setting and configuration devices, tools, etc.) making its installation and operation within the system a simpler process.

Direct connection of the Canalis KT busbar trunking on the Masterpact 3200 A circuit breaker.

Communication consistency:
Thanks to the use of standard Web technologies, you can offer your customers intelligent Merlin Gerin switchboards allowing easy access to information: follow-up of currents, voltages, powers, consumption history, etc.

Each product complies with global choices in terms of communication protocols (Modbus, Ethernet, etc.) for simplified integration in the management, supervision and monitoring systems.

insulation monitoring and associated functions

continuity of supply
Continuity of supply is a need that must always be satisfied by electrical installations, along with the protection of life and property. The IT system provides the best guarantee in terms of continuity of supply. Even when a first insulation fault is present, the installation can continue to supply power without endangering human life. The first fault must however be detected and repaired before a second fault occurs.

principle
Insulation monitoring is provided on IT systems to detect and indicate insulation faults as soon as they occur. The basic function is carried out by an Insulation Monitoring Device (IMD), also referred to in certain documentation as a permanent or continuous insulation monitor (PIM or CIM respectively). The monitoring device injects a DC or low-frequency AC voltage between the installation and earth. The insulation resistance is determined from the resulting current. This technique can be used on all types of installations: AC, DC, rectified, mixed AC/DC, etc.

measuring, indicating and locating insulation faults


Vigilohm System, with or without a communication bus, fulfils the following basic functions: c measurement of insulation level on all types of installations c manual or automatic locating of insulation faults.

Vigilohm System with a communication bus


The communication bus adds the following possibilities: c measurement of the insulation resistance and earth leakage capacitance of each circuit c centralisation of fault locating measurements on the IMD display units c communication with a supervisor (transmission of measurements and reception of settings).

Vigilohm System without a communication bus


This solution offers: c automatic fault detection; c accurate measurements of the insulation level for all types of installations.

Insulation monitoring devices inject a DC or low-frequency AC voltage between the installation and earth. The insulation resistance is determined by measuring the resulting leakage current. c Vigilohm EM9 devices use an indicator light to signal the presence of an insulation fault within the installation. They are modular devices (Multi 9 format) designed for small installations or sub-systems isolated from earth; c the TR22A and TR22AH (for hospitals) devices detect insulation faults and, in addition, continuously indicate the value of the insulation resistance on a digital display; c the XM200 is part of the Vigilohm System range and can be associated with automatic fault locating devices.

off-line insulation monitoring


The failure of a motor to start can have serious consequences. This is especially true in the following applications: c safety equipment (fire pumps, smoke extractors, etc.); c production (glass works, cement plants, etc.); c manufacturing processes (rolling mills, etc.). Motors often fail to start due to insulation problems caused by the humidity that accumulates in the microscopic cracks of the insulation during periods when the motor is not running. The SM21 device monitors the insulation of critical motors while they are off-line. Insulation faults give rise to an alarm or motor starting lock-out.

fault locating
Once detected, an insulation fault must be located and eliminated in order to guarantee maximum continuity of supply. Manual fault locating The fault is located by testing different points in the installation, one after another, using a Vigilohm System XRM mobile receiver and a current probe. The receiver captures the low-frequency fault locating signal. Two cases may be encountered: c the installation is equipped with an XM200 or XM300C insulation monitoring device (Vigilohm System). In this case, the manual system is used to fine-tune the results of the automatic locating system c the installation (relatively small or an isolated sub-system) is equipped with an insulation monitoring device for DC injection. In this case, a Vigilohm XGR portable generator is used together with an XRM receiver.

insulation monitoring and associated functions


communication features
In addition to displaying the insulation values it measures for the installation as a whole, an insulation monitoring device can also provide a centralised display for information concerning specific circuits. It receives this information from communicating insulation fault locators and detectors distributed throughout the installation. All this information may also be transmitted to a remote supervisory system. These communication features satisfy the operating requirements of modern electrical installations. All information concerning the insulation can be transmitted via a communication bus for display on a centralised insulation monitoring device or to a supervision system for centralised processing and management.

prevention of insulation faults


Prevention is the best way to ensure the continuity of supply of electrical installations. It may be applied in two ways: c the insulation monitoring device signals a drop in the insulation resistance below a non-critical prevention threshold determined by the user; c the measurements are transmitted to a supervisor, which can then process them to predict insulation faults on ageing cables. These indications can be used to schedule preventive maintenance.

easier operation of IT systems
An installation implementing the IT system, i.e. isolated from earth or connected to earth through a sufficiently high impedance, gives top priority to continuity of supply. Today, the operation of such installations can be greatly facilitated by the use of devices that offer functions going far beyond the simple fault signalling imposed by standards. Other functions c measurement of the true insulation resistance c measurement of the earth leakage capacitance c indication of transient faults c prevention alarm when the insulation resistance falls below a non-critical threshold determined by the user; c remote interrogation and display, from the insulation monitoring device, of faults detected by the fault locators c setting of alarm thresholds from a supervisor

principle and functions


The basic device is the Insulation Monitoring Device (IMD). It injects a lowfrequency AC voltage between earth and the installation. Based on a measurement of the resulting current, the Vigilohm System accurately determines the true insulation resistance of the installation and its earth coupling capacitance. This technique can be used on all types of installations: AC, DC, rectified, mixed, etc. Fault locating is the main function associated with insulation monitoring. Toroids placed on the various circuits capture a signal proportional to the current injected by the insulation monitoring device. This signal is transmitted to fault detection and locating devices which automatically identify any faulty circuit. Distributed measurements of the insulation resistance and the earth leakage capacitance are possible on each circuit via the toroids used for fault locating. Centralisation on a supervisor. Via a communication bus using JBUS protocol, the Vigilohm System can forward all measurements, information and events to a supervisor. In this way, the supervisor maintains full knowledge on the insulation status of the overall installation and the individually monitored circuits. The supervisor (or PLC) can be connected to a printer to log all events occurring on the installation, complete with location and timestamp. Adaptation to variable installation configurations. The system automatically excludes all but one insulation monitoring device connected to the same set of busbars.

Vigilohm System: choosing a communication interface


the power of a communicating system
The power of the Vigilohm System lies in the capacity it offers for communication between all its devices, thereby ensuring insulation monitoring and complementary functions such as automatic locating of faults or the anticipation of their occurrence. In addition, the Vigilohm System is capable of communicating with a supervisor or a PLC, i.e. it can both transmit data to and receive data from such units. The transfer of information takes place: c via the internal Vigilohm System bus for communication between the devices; c via the external JBUS for communication with a supervisor or PLC. In both cases, the use of an internal or external bus requires a communication interface.

four interfaces
The Vigilohm System offers four interfaces: c the XLI200 interface, for the transmission of information from the insulation monitoring device and XD308C detectors to a supervisor or PLC via JBUS. In this way, a PC can access information concerning the presence of faults and the identification of the faulty circuit. This interface cannot be used with XL308/316 or XML308/316 devices and connects only to the XM300C and XD308C (the XLI200 cannot be used with XML monitoring-locating devices or with XL locating devices). c the XLI300 interface, for the transmission of measurements and measurement parameters from the XM300C and XD308C devices to a supervisor. This interface is used on single busbar installations. The

exclusion of other insulation monitoring devices found on the same installation is managed automatically; c the XTU300 interface, for communication between the Vigilohm System and a supervisor, like the XLI300 interface. This interface is required for installations with multiple busbars and bus coupler circuit breakers. It manages the exclusion of other insulation monitoring devices found on the same installation and the link between the locators and their corresponding insulation monitoring devices; c the XAS interface, indispensable for the operation of the communication bus in the absence of one of the three other interfaces.

The following examples cover two typical installation configurations with insulation monitoring and fault locating systems. Example 1: c automatic fault locating with local display. The use of an XM200 insulation monitoring device together with XD301 and XD312 detectors represents the typical case providing basic detection and automatic locating of insulation faults on the main feeders as well as on certain secondary feeders. Fault locating can be fine-tuned using an XRM mobile receiver and a current probe to determine the exact location of the fault on the faulty circuit. The auto-exclusion of other XM200 insulation monitoring devices is controlled by the circuit breaker position indication contacts.

Example 2: c measurement and automatic fault locating with local and centralised display, for an installation with more than one set of busbars and a bus coupling circuit breaker. The measurement of the insulation resistance on the main feeders is provided in addition to fault detection with automatic locating (XL308/316 and XML308/316). The secondary feeders are monitored simply by an XD312/301 detector or by an XD308C detector that communicates detected faults to the supervisor (via the XTU300 interface). The architecture of the installation (several sources and sets of busbars) makes it necessary to use an XTU300 interface to handle the exclusion of other insulation monitoring devices and the link between the locators and their corresponding insulation monitoring devices.

IT system for the entire installation
Continuity of supply is the requirement that most often leads designers to chose the IT system for an electrical installation. This requirement may apply to the entire installation (e.g. chemical process plant, steel plant, etc.). Such an installation requires continuous monitoring of the insulation level.

The requirement for continuity of supply may apply to only a part of an installation, for example a single shop or plant, or a circuit subject to special conditions (safety lighting). In this case, it is recommended to use the IT system for this part of the installation, whatever the system used for general distribution.

The use of motors in industrial processes creates a further need for insulation monitoring. By checking the insulation with power off, the presence of insulation faults can be determined before starting motors (fire pumps, smoke extractors, etc.). It is also possible to prevent motor starting automatically if the insulation resistance is below a certain threshold.

Vigilohm: functions and characteristics

communicating Vigilohm System XM300C insulation monitoring device


044148

basic function: overall insulation monitoring


The XM300C provides overall insulation monitoring of electrical installations by injecting a low-frequency AC voltage between the installation and earth.

communication
Communication with the supervision system. The XLI300 and XTU300 interfaces allow monitoring devices + locators + communicating detectors to exchange information with a supervision system via JBUS protocol. The XLI300 and XTU300 interfaces connect to the Vigilohm System bus and allow timestamping of insulation monitoring events.

main functions
c measurement: v insulation resistance, v earth leakage capacitance; c indications: v satisfactory insulation resistance (green light on bargraph), v drop in insulation resistance: below prevention threshold (orange light on bargraph and relay actuated), below fault threshold (red light on bargraph and two relays actuated, including one with a failsafe feature), v transient faults (orange light); c display: v measurements, v events detected by any XL308/316 locators connected. All this data is accessible locally on the LCD screen of the insulating monitoring device and remotely via the Vigilohm System bus.

configuration management
On installations with a number of insulation monitoring devices installed to cover variable configurations, only one device at a time can be allowed to inject a voltage between earth and the installation downstream of the incoming circuit breaker. For this reason, the system must manage the exclusion of other connected insulation monitoring devices. In addition, each locator must identify the monitoring device from which it is to capture the signal. The exclusion of monitoring devices and their identification by the locators is handled in one of the following manners: c by the XTU300 interface for multiple busbar installations; c by the XLI300 interface for single busbar installations. In both cases, the circuit breaker position indication contacts are wired to the all-ornothing inputs of the XM300C or XML308/316. If only XD308C detectors are associated with the XM300C, monitoring device exclusion is handled by the XLI200 interface.

additional functions with other devices


Locating of faulty circuits This function is obtained by using the XM300C together with: c XL308 and XL316 locators connected to 8 or 16 toroids. They are linked to the XM300C by the Vigilohm System bus; c XD308C communicating detectors. They are linked to the XM300C by the Vigilohm System bus, and connected to the toroids placed on the circuits to be monitored; c XD301 and XD312 detectors connected to the toroids placed on the circuits to be monitored; c an XRM mobile receiver and a current probe to fine-tune the automatic locating results. All these devices can be combined on a given installation. Distributed measurements This function is provided by combining an XM300C monitoring device (or an XML308/316 monitoring-locating device) with XL308 or XL316 locators. These locators measure the insulation resistance and the earth leakage capacitance of each of the circuits. They have a fault alarm threshold that can be set to a different levels for each channel.

Vigilohm: functions and characteristics

XRM mobile fault locating receiver and current probes


051350

operation
The XRM mobile receiver, used with a current probe, is mainly intended as an enhancement to automatic fault locating systems. It can be placed at various points along a faulty circuit, capturing the signal emitted by an XM300C, XML308/316 or XM200 insulation monitoring device to determine the exact location of the fault. Three current probes are available, the XM15, XP50 and XP100. The set of live conductors to be tested must have a maximum diameter of 12, 50 and 100 mm respectively.

XRM receiver

display
The XRM receiver displays a number from 0 to 19, corresponding to the insulation level: c 0: no fault; c 19: solid fault (no insulation).

c the XGR generator injects a 2.5 Hz AC voltage between the installation and the earth, thereby creating a leakage current which passes through the installation insulation impedance; c the XRM mobile receiver is associated with one of the three tong-type probes, XP15, XP50 or XP100, and detects this leakage current at 2.5 Hz. It displays a value between 1 and 19 according to the current passing through the probe, thus detecting the leakage current; c three current probes are available, the XP15, XP50 and the XP100, for cables with diameters up to 12, 50 and 100 mm respectively. Older probe models are not compatible with the XRM.

installation precautions
Immunity to line overcurrents Line overcurrents, due to motor starting or transformer energising, may result in unnecessary fault detection by the detector. A number of simple precautions can help prevent this from happening: when used together they are even more effective: c place the toroid on a straight part of the cable; c carefully centre the cable in the toroid; c use a toroid with a diameter far larger than the diameter of the cable (2 x diameter), (figure 1). For severe operating conditions, use of a mild steel sleeve placed around the cable, in the toroid, considerably increases immunity. Recommended characteristics c mild steel foil, 1/10 mm thick, to be wound several times around the cable in the toroid (at least 1 mm thick); c internal diameter of toroid > 1.4 x external diameter of the cable bundle (figure 2); c toroid-detector link: v resistance i 3 , v cross-sectional area of wires: 0.75 mm2 to 1.5 mm2, v maximum length: 50 m.
