The RCMS system consists of one or more RCMS460-D/-L or RCMS490-D/-L residual current monitors, which are able to detect and evaluate fault, residual and operating currents in earthed power supplies via the related measuring current transformers. The maximum voltage of the system to be monitored depends on the nominal insulation voltage of the measuring current transformer used in the case of busbar systems, resp. depend on the cables or conductors that are routed through.
Closed CTBS25 or CTUB100 series measuring current transformers are required to measure AC/DC sensitive residual currents (according to IEC/TR 60755: Type B). They require one 24 V DC power supply unit (e.g. STEP-PS series). CTAC… (closed), WR (rectangular), WS (split-core) and WF… (flexible) series measuring current transformers are used for alternating and pulsating currents (according to IEC/TR 60755: Type A).
Any combination of the various measuring current transformer series can be connected to the monitor measuring channels. Each RCMS460-D/-L and RCMS490-D/-L has 12 measuring channels. Up to 90 residual current monitors can be connected via a BMS bus (RS-485 interface with BMS protocol), thereby up to 1080 measuring channels (sub-circuits) can be monitored.
If this product is to be used for personnel, fire or plant protection, the frequency response can be set accordingly. The measured currents can be analysed for harmonics.
