The High Burden Tripping Relay
provides enhanced security in the
substations and avoids opening of
the circuit breaker due to
capacitive discharge currents when
there is an earth fault in long DC
cables. The self reset trip relay
(RXMN) and electrically or manually
resettable latched trip relay
(RXMVC) fulfill applicable
international standards.

operate. The burden is reduced to a low value af-

It is reduced to zero after 50ms in the electrical /
hand reset variant. Thus, there is no continuous
load on the auxiliary supply and also no risk of
welding of protective relay output contacts.
