ANSWER FOR ANY
TRIPPING APPLICATION
ARTECHE offers a wide range of relays
specially designed to be used in circuit
breaker tripping applications.
›
Interface between protection and control
equipments and HV and/or MV circuit
breakers, eliminating risks in case of internal
failure of the circuit breaker.
›
Trip contacts multiplication, to operate
directly on the circuit breaker and transmit
the corresponding alarms in a minimum
time.
›
Trip and lock-out, with electric or hand
reset to avoid accidental closing of circuit
breakers associated to power transformers,
generators or machines.
›
The surveillance of the trip circuit,
guarantees it is in perfect conditions to
allow the trip when it is needed.
TECHNICAL STANDARDS
GENERAL STANDARDS
In addition to the specific applicable standards, ARTECHE auxiliary
relays are designed based on the fulfilment of the following
standards:
›
›

›
›
IEC 61812: Specified time relays for industrial use.
›
›

GENERAL
CHARACTERISTICS
Some of the general characteristics of the ARTECHE
trip relays are:
›
High isolation level between input and
output circuit, which guarantees that a
problem in the circuit breaker will not cause
irreparable damages on the protection
system.
›
Fast operating times, down to 3 ms,
minimizing the impact on the total trip time.
›
High breaking capacity, which allows direct
operation on highly inductive circuits.
›
›
Sturdy design, which ensures high reliability.
›
›
›
Self-cleaning of the contacts.
›
Designed to work in permanent service,
even at high temperature for the whole
voltage range.
›
Possibility to work in environments with
relative humidity of 100%.
›
Seismic characteristics, allowing their use
in installations which can be subject to
vibrations, as for example in power stations
or in regions with high risk of seism.
›
High protection degree (IP40), with
transparent cover, making them appropriate
for tropical and saline environments.
›
Fulfilment of the most demanding
standards: IEC, EN, IEEE, CE and UL mark.
›
No maintenance needed.
Wide range of auxiliary voltage (Vdc and
Vac).
Security contacts according to EN 50205.
Easy installation (plug-in relays
different installation possibilities).
with
In addition, the different number of alternatives that are offered when
the equipment is selected, both technically (increase of the breaking
capacity by serial contacts or by the magnetic blow out, high speed
operation of the output contacts, possibility of adding different options
to the relay) and in the assembly method (front, rear or flush mounted
sockets, with screws or fastons) must be considered.
E322124
UL Recognized Component Marks for USA and Canada: The
combined UL signs for the USA and Canada are recognized by
the authorities of both countries. All auxiliary relays identified
with this mark meet the requirements of both countries.

RANGE OF PRODUCTS
TRIP RELAYS
Instantaneous trip relays, whose contacts change instantaneously from
the rest position to the working position when the coil is energized.
The contacts return to the rest position when the coil is no longer
energized.
This range includes relays with 2, 4 and 8 contacts, with operating
times from 3 ms to 8 ms, depending on the model.
All the relays include a diode in parallel with the coil (see auxiliary
relays with overvoltage protection characteristic) and comply with
the sock and vibration standards, related to the relays with seismic
characteristics.
TRIP AND LOCKOUT RELAYS
Trip relays with 2 stable positions for the output contacts. Depending
on which coil is energized, the contacts will change from one position
to the other. The design of the ARTECHE relays has no consumption
in permanence, and prevents both coils from being energized
simultaneously.
This range includes relays with 3, 4 and 8 contacts, with operating
times below 10 ms, depending on the model, and possibility of manual
reset. The position change is made with 2 sets of coils with separated
entrances, in BF-3 and BJ-8, and with breaking-flame contacts for each
set of coils.
TRIP CIRCUIT SUPERVISION RELAYS
For single phase or three phase circuit breakers. Through a small
supervision current the whole circuit is supervised, in both positions of
the circuit breaker (opened or closed).
The correct state of the circuit is showed with a green LED on the front
plate of the relay. The output contacts change its position if the relay
detects a failure in the continuity of the circuit.
AUXILIARY SUPPLY CIRCUIT SUPERVISION
RELAYS
Auxiliary relay with four changeover contacts, aimed to supervise the failure of trip
supply.
Connecting the relay across the trip circuit supply, the equipment is normally
energized. Faults will occur when the trip voltage is lost, so the relay drops off
in those cases, providing the related signs and alarms.In order to avoid faulty
alarms due to instantaneous supply voltage dips, the drop off time of the relay is
delayed over 100 ms so those non-permanent failures of trip supply would not
be considered.

HIGH / LOW BURDEN CONFIGURATION
(HIGH SPEED TRIPPING RELAYS ONLY)
The standard high speed tripping relays
are manufactured with a low burden
configuration, considering that the initiating
contact is placed close to the tripping relay.
However, and in order to avoid unwanted trip
relay operation due to pickup or transients,
particularly if the relay operating coil is
connected to extensive wiring, ARTECHE
tripping relays could be manufactured with
a high burden configuration, complying with
ESI 48-4 international standard, as EB2 class
relays. These EB2 class relays are suitable
for use in high security circuit breaker
tripping circuits, increasing their immunity to
capacitance discharge currents.
For relays with rated voltage up to and
including the 125 V, the relays will withstand,
without operating, a discharge into their
operate circuits of a 10μF capacitor charged
to 120% of the higher rated voltage for the
relay.
For relays with rated voltage of 220 V, the
relays will withstand, without operating a
discharge into their operate circuits of a 10μF
capacitor charged to 100% of the higher rated
voltage for the relay, i.e 242 V.

MODEL RXR:
The breaking capacity is a critical parameter on
the design and the applications of the relays.
Its mechanical life could be considerably
reduced, depending on the value of the
load (especially with heavy duty loads), the
number of operations and the environmental
conditions in which the relay is operating.

In any configuration, ARTECHE’s auxiliary
relays have a high breaking capacity values.
These limits are showed in the table below,
in terms of power and current values. In
all the cases, these relays guarantee a right
performance during 50,000 operations.

Likewise, the values showed in the following
charts have been obtained in standard
conditions in the laboratory, and they could
be different in real conditions. In any case,
the possibility of connecting serial contacts
or a bigger distance between contacts makes
these values to be considerably increased.

HOW TO SELECT THE CURVE
OF MY RELAY
These charts show the breaking capacity values, either for resistive
and highly inductive loads, in three voltage values of reference (ask for
other voltage values). The charts show two different curves:
›
Type A: Breaking capacity of the relays with distance between
contacts = 1.8 mm.
›
Type B: Breaking capacity of the relays with distance between
contacts = 1.2 mm.
›
2 contacts type A: Breaking capacity for relays with serial contacts,
and distance between contacts=1.8 mm.
›
2 contacts type B: Breaking capacity for relays with serial contacts,
and distance between contacts=1.2 mm.
The distance between contacts is shown in the tables of technical data.
HOW THE BREAKING CAPACITY
CAN BE INCREASED
ARTECHE’s auxiliary relays are power relays, designed specially to
have a high breaking capacity. Thus, there are applications where the
loads are so high that it is necessary to even increase the breaking
capacity, keeping the reliability of the contacts of the auxiliary relays.
Recommendations to increase breaking capacity:
›
Connect contacts in series. The breaking capacity is increased
considerably, guaranteeing the right performance during a high
number of operations. See curves for two contacts.
›
Include the magnetic blow-out option: This option is indicated for
safety applications (back-up) where the load values are extremely
high. The mechanical life of the relay is reduced, but it is able to
open very high loads for a certain number of operations.
These values of high breaking capacity are represented in the following
table, where the high capacity of the output contacts of ARTECHE’s
auxiliary relays is proved:
