LINETRAXX® RCMA420

LINETRAXX® RCMA420

  • Ground-fault monitor for grounded and high-resistance grounded AC/DC systems
  • Modular installation using a single external current transformer
  • Works with AC/DC power conversion equipment including variable frequency drives
  • Digital display with real-time readings
  • Configurable Form-C (SPDT) relay contacts

The RCMA420 monitors for ground-fault current in solidly-grounded and high-resistance-grounded AC/DC (single-phase or three-phase) systems. The RCMA420 is also compatible with systems that contain power conversion equipment, such as variable frequency drives and inverters.

The pickup value is adjustable from 10 mA to 500 mA (for a higher pickup value, refer to RCMA423 series). A separately configurable pre-warning alarm is also available. Three separately adjustable time delays are included - a pickup delay, startup delay, and delay on reset.

The RCMA420 provides an accurate, RMS value. Measurements are displayed in real-time via the device's on-board digital display. All device are configured using the display and push buttons. Two Form-C (SPDT) relay outputs are separately configurable to trigger on pre-warning or main alarms.

A single current transformer connects to the RCMA420 for measuring ground-fault current. A wide range of sizes are available.

Features

  • Ground-fault monitoring for solidly-grounded and high-resistance-grounded AC/DC systems
  • Meets or exceeds code requirements for ground-fault detection on grounded AC/DC systems, where applicable
  • Works on systems with power conversion equipment, including variable frequency drives and inverters
  • RMS measurement values
