Relay MC61A is a three phase over current + Earth fault relay with 4 measuring elements. The relay has built in highest(instantaneous trip) protection, for both over current & earth fault elements. The relay can be used for feeder protection in all low voltage, medium voltage and high voltage sub-stations. The relay has a front panel 4 digit seven segment LED display to read various settings,on line values, switch on values, last trip data etc. User has a choice of 7 trip time characteristics. 50 / 51, 50N/ 51N Three Phase Over current Earth Fault Highset Over current Higset earth fault Inverse & Definite time trip Characteristis 4 digit display CT secondary 1A / 5a field selectable
