1. Safety
1.1 Safety instructions
Make sure that any persons installing, taking into operation and operating the MB-101 Temperature
Control Unit:

are technically qualified and competent;

fully comply with these assembling instructions.


Improper operations or misuse could cause danger to:

life and limb

to the equipment and other assets of the operator


Safety instructions in this manual are shown in three different forms to emphasize important
information.

WARNING
This information indicates particular danger to life and health. Disregarding
such a warning can lead to serious or fatal injury

CAUTION
This information indicates particular danger to equipment or other property of
the user. Serious or fatal injury cannot be excluded.

NOTE
These notes give important or specific information concerning the equipment or
how to work with the equipment.

1.2 Specified applications

The MB-101 Temperature Control Unit is used in resin or dry type transformers and also easily adapts
for use in oil transformers.
The MB 101 Temperature Control Unit uses PT100 temperature probes for constant monitoring of
transformer temperature in four points: for example three on the transformer winding columns and one
on the machines magnetic circuit.
If the transformer malfunctions, causing its temperature to rise, the MB 101 Temperature Control Unit
nd
generates an electric alarm signal. If the temperature reaches danger levels the unit generates a 2
intervention level. This can be connected to a machine stoppage switch that functions independent of
the alarms. A cooling system control program is also implemented in the unit.

2.3 Main characteristics

System programming directly by frontal panel.


Possibility to select independently each single channel.
Visualization of max. temperature and the relevant channel in the automatic mode
Software configuration to control the inputs and outputs.
Memoriation of the max temperature for each channel.
Relay test command.
Ventilation operation setting which is programmable and connectable to change over contacts of relay
Up to four channels during activation.
Two alarm thresholds with two change over contacts.
Automatic feeler fault indicator with change over contact.

2.4 Operation

The software immediately notes, saves and signals any temperature irregularity to the operator, who
can intervene with precision. There are two alarm levels for maximum temperature, another alarm for
feeler and a command for controlling a cooling system (fan).
The entire programming procedure has intelligent control of both the request and data that is inputted.
The thermo controller is set with standard factory values (that can be calLED up at any moment); the
first channels are activated with a first alarm threshold of 140 C and a second one of 160 C. This is
why the ventilation option was excluded.
The 6 LEDs on the display make it possible for the MB 101 thermo controller to clearly signal and run
information regarding the thermal state of the protected apparatus.

Auto: Automatic operation


With automatic operation, both the highest temperature and the
channel this measurement comes from are displayed.
Man: Manual operation
With manual operation, the temperature of each sensor in real time is displayed. The arrow keys are
used to scroll the active channels.
Max: Maximum operation
With maximum operation, the maximum temperature reached by each feeler is displayed. The arrow
keys are used to scroll the active channels.

2.6 Programming

To reach programming, press and keys simultaneously for 3 seconds; the letter
F appears on the display followed by a number. During the programming phase the Max LED
on the instrument panel will light up. Using the arrow keys, it is possible to redefine the operational
mode of the thermo control according to the table below. The table shows four pre-set profiles for
setting the active channels and a fifth profile.

2.7 Correct operation checks

Two test levels have been introduced to ensure switchboard reliability and correct state signaling. The
first is dedicated to the front panel signaling LEDs, the other checks the proper operation of the
command relay.

2.8 Signaling tests

Enter
Test
To see if there are any faulty elements, press the key on the command panel. All
six LEDs and the display segments light up for 2 seconds.

2.10 Zeroing procedure

Resetting the re-entered fault signal


If a feeler is faulty the Temperature Control Unit indicates:
the release relay Fault
the alarm LED, trip LED and fault LED light up
fault channel is displayed
error message is displayed near the fault channel:
SSP: feeler in short circuit
OPP: feeler interrupted
If the fault is intermittent (typical in cases of faulty cables), it is still possible to safely discover the fault
sensor when the release signal returns due to the continually flashing LED.

Enter
Test
To zero the fault signal, simultaneously keep and pressed for two seconds
once the fault has been corrected. The fault signal reset function can be used in both the automatic
and manual display modes.
Resetting the revealed maximum temperatures:
The revealed maximum temperature reset function is only available in the maximum log display mode
( MAX ). This function makes it possible to zero the maximum logs to the

Test
current temperature values. To zero, keep and pressed simultaneously for two
seconds.

3. Installation
The MB 101 Temperature Control Unit has to be installed inside the hole of the switchboard, and then
the MB 101 has to be fixed with the fastening components and the screws provided with the
equipment.
The power supply has to connect to the supply connection (universal power supply 24 V 240 V
ac/dc).
The feelers have to connect to the feeler connection.
The auxiliary circuits (alarm, trip, fault, fan) have to connect to the electric connection.

Warning
The instrument reads up to PT 100 feelers.
It is best to avoid dust, humidity and corrosive gases. Keep distant from heat
sources. The maximum working temperature of the instrument is 60 C

5. Operation and maintenance

5.1 Starting device


The MB 101 Temperature Control Unit starts when the voltage power supply is applied across the
terminals.

WARNING

If possible, group all pieces of the instrument in an area that is separate


from the relay power section.
Avoid placing the following in the same panel: high power teleswitches,
counters, relays, thyristors and, in particular, phase displacement power
groups, motors, etc.
Before applying the MB 101 Temperature Control Unit, wait for the
equipment to reach room temperature (at least 1 hour).
