The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are suitable for the overload
protection of explosion-proof motors with "increased safety" type
of protection EEx e;

■ Design
Device concept
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are compact devices, i. e.
current measurement and the evaluation unit are integrated in a
single enclosure.
Mounting options
(1) Connection for mounting onto contactors:
Optimally adapted in electrical, mechanical and design terms to the
contactors and soft starters, these connecting pins can be used for direct mounting of the overload relays. Stand-alone installation is possible as an alternative (in some cases in conjunction with a stand-alone
installation module).
(2) Selector switch for manual/automatic RESET and RESET button:
With this switch you can choose between manual and automatic
RESET. A device set to manual RESET can be reset locally by pressing
the RESET button. A remote RESET is possible using the RESET modules (accessories), which are independent of size.
(3) Switch position indicator and TEST function of the wiring:
Indicates a trip and enables the wiring test.
(4) Motor current setting:
Setting the device to the rated motor current is easy with the large
rotary knob.
(5) STOP button:
If the STOP button is pressed, the NC contact is opened. This switches
off the contactor downstream. The NC contact is closed again when
the button is released.
(6) Transparent sealable cover
Secures the motor current setting and the TEST function against
adjustment.
(7) Supply terminals:
The generously sized terminals permit connection of two conductors
with different cross-sections for the main and auxiliary circuits. The
auxiliary circuit can be connected with screw terminals and alternatively with spring-type terminals.
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays up to 100 A have been designed for inverse-time delayed protection of loads with normal
starting (see "Function") against excessive temperature rises
due to overload or phase failure. An overload or phase failure results in an increase of the motor current beyond the set rated
motor current. Via heating elements, this current rise heats up
the bimetal strips inside the device which then bend and as a result trigger the auxiliary contacts by means of a tripping mechanism. The auxiliary contacts then switch off the load by means of
a contactor. The break time depends on the ratio between the
tripping current and current setting Ie and is stored in the form of
a long-term stable tripping characteristic (see "Characteristic
Curves").
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays can be mounted directly
onto the 3RT1 contactors (exception: size S00 with Cage Clamp
terminals can only be installed as a stand-alone installation).
With the matching terminal brackets the devices can still be installed as stand-alone units.
For more information on the mounting options see "Technical
specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Connection methods
All sizes of the 3RU11 thermal overload relays with screw terminal can be connected to the auxiliary and main current paths.
Rails can be connected to the main conductor connections of
size S3 overload relays if the box terminals are removed.
As an alternative, the devices are also available with Cage
Clamp terminals. The auxiliary conductor connections of these
devices, and for size S00 the main conductor connections as
well, are fitted with Cage Clamp terminals.
For more information on the connection options see "Technical
specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Overload relays in contactor assemblies for
wye-delta starting
When overload relays are used in combination with contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting it must be noted that only 0.58
times the motor current flows through the line contactor. An overload relay mounted onto the line contactor must be set to 0.58
times the motor current.
An assignment of the 3RU11 thermal overload relays to the line
contactors of our 3RA contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting can be found under "Controls ---> Contactors and Contactor
Assemblies".
Operation with frequency converter
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are suitable for operation
with frequency converters. Depending on the frequency of the
converter, a higher current than the motor current must be used
in some cases due to eddy-currents and skin effects.
The "tripped" status is signaled by means of a switch position indicator. Resetting takes place either manually or automatically
after the recovery time has elapsed (see "Function").
The devices are manufactured in accordance with environmental guidelines and contain environmentally friendly and reusable
materials.
They comply with all important worldwide standards and
approvals.

Overload Relays
3RU1 Thermal Overload Relays
3RU11 for standard applications
■ Function
Basic functions
Recovery time
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are designed for:
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from overloading
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from phase failure
Control circuit
After tripping due to overload, the 3RU11 thermal overload relays
require some time until the bimetal strips have cooled down. The
device can only be reset after the bimetal strips have cooled
down. This time (recovery time) depends on the tripping characteristics and strength of the tripping current.
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays do not require an additional
supply voltage for operation.
The recovery time allows the load to cool down after tripping due
to overload.
Short-circuit protection
TEST function
Fuses or motor starter protectors must be used for short-circuit
protection.
The TEST slide can be used to check whether the operational
3RU11 thermal overload relay is working properly. Actuating the
slide simulates tripping of the relay. During this simulation the NC
contact (95-96) is opened and the NO contact (97-98) is closed.
This tests whether the auxiliary circuit has been correctly connected to the overload relay. If the 3RU11 thermal overload relay
has been set to automatic RESET, the overload relay is automatically reset when the TEST slide is released. The relay must be reset with the RESET button if it has been set to manual RESET.
For assignments of the corresponding short-circuit protection devices to the 3RU11 thermal overload relays with/without contactor
see "Technical specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Trip classes
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are available for normal starting conditions with trip class CLASS 10. For heavy starting conditions see 3RB2 solid-state overload relays.
For details of the trip classes see "Characteristic Curves".
Phase failure protection
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are fitted with phase failure
sensitivity (see "Characteristic Curves") in order to minimize temperature rises of the load in the case of a phase failure during
single-phase operation.
Setting
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are set to the rated motor current by means of a rotary knob. The scale of the rotary knob is
shown in ampere.
Manual and automatic reset
Automatic and manual reset is selected by pressing and turning
the blue button (RESET button). If the button is set to manual reset,
the overload relay can be reset directly by pressing the
RESET button. Resetting is possible in combination with mechanical and electrical reset options from the range of accessories (see
Catalog LV 1, "Accessories"). If the blue button is set to automatic
RESET, the relay is reset automatically.
The time between tripping and resetting is determined by the recovery time.
8
Siemens · 2010
STOP function
If the STOP button is pressed, the NC contact is opened. This switches off the contactor downstream and thus the load. The load is
switched on again when the STOP button is released.
Display of the operating state
The respective operating state of the 3RU11 thermal overload relay is displayed by means of the position of the marking on the
TEST function/switch position indicator slide. After tripping due to
overload or phase failure, the marking on the slide is to left on the
"O" mark, otherwise it is on the "I" mark.
Auxiliary contacts
The 3RU11 thermal overload relays are fitted with an NO contact
for the tripped signal, and an NC contact for disconnecting the
contactor.

see short-circuit protection of the
contactors without overload relay under "Controls - Contactors
and Contactor Assemblies".
1) Assignment and short-circuit protective devices according to
IEC 60947-4-1:
The contactor or starter must not endanger persons or the installation in the
event of a short-circuit.
Type of coordination "1": The contactor or the starter may be non-operational after every short-circuit release.
Type of coordination "2": The contactor or the starter must be operational
after a short-circuit release (without replacement of parts). Welding of the
contacts is permissible however.

3RU1 Thermal Overload Relays
3RU11 for standard applications
■ Characteristic curves
The tripping characteristics show the relationship between the
tripping time and tripping current as multiples of the current
setting Ie and are given for symmetrical three-pole and two-pole
loads from the cold state.
The smallest current used for tripping is called the minimum
tripping current. According to IEC 60947-4-1, this current must be
within specified limits. The limits of the minimum tripping
current for the 3RU11 thermal overload relays for symmetrical
three-pole loads are between 105 and 120 % of the current
setting.
The tripping characteristic starts with the minimum tripping current and continues with higher tripping currents based on the characteristics of the so-called trip classes (CLASS 10, CLASS 20
etc.). The trip classes describe time intervals within which the
overload relays have to trip with 7.2 times the current setting Ie
from the cold state for symmetrical three-pole loads.
The tripping times are as follows for:
Trip class

The tripping characteristic for a three-pole 3RU11 thermal overload relay (see characteristic curve for symmetrical three-pole
loads from the cold state) only applies if all three bimetal strips are
simultaneously loaded with the same current. If only two bimetal
strips are heated due to a phase failure, these two strips alone
must generate the necessary force to trigger the tripping mechanism which would result in a longer tripping time or require a higher current. If these higher currents are applied over a longer period, they usually cause damage to the load. To avoid damage,
the 3RU11 thermal overload relays are fitted with phase failure
sensitivity which ensures faster tripping in accordance with the
characteristic curve for 2-pole loads from the cold state by means
of a suitable mechanical mechanism.
Compared with a cold load, a load at operating temperature obviously has a lower temperature reserve. This is taken into account
by the 3RU11 thermal overload relays by reducing the tripping
time to about 25 % when loaded with the current setting Ie for an
extended period.

"Increased safety" type of protection EEx e acc. to ATEX directive 94/9/EC
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are suitable for the
overload protection of explosion-proof motors with "increased
safety" type of protection EEx e;
see Catalog LV 1, Chapter 20 "Appendix" --> "Standards and approvals" --> "Type overview of approved devices for explosionprotected areas (ATEX Explosion Protection)".
■ Design
Device concept
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are compact devices, i. e. current measurement (transformer) and the evaluation
unit are integrated in a single enclosure.
(1)Connection for mounting onto contactors:
Optimally adapted in electrical, mechanical and design terms to the
contactors and soft starters, these connecting pins can be used for direct mounting of the overload relays. Stand-alone installation is possible
as an alternative (in some cases in conjunction with a stand-alone installation module).
(2)Selector switch for manual/automatic RESET and RESET button:
With the slide switch you can choose between manual and automatic
RESET. A device set to manual RESET can be reset locally by pressing
the RESET button. On the 3RB21 a solid-state remote RESET is
integrated.
(3)Switch position indicator and TEST function of the wiring:
Indicates a trip and enables the wiring test.
(4)Solid-state test (device test):
Enables a test of all important device components and functions.
(5)Motor current setting:
Setting the device to the rated motor current is easy with the large rotary
knob.
(6)Trip class setting/internal ground-fault detection (only 3RB21):
Using the rotary switch you can set the required trip class and activate
the internal ground-fault detection dependent on the start-up
conditions.
(7)Connecting terminals (removable joint block for auxiliary circuits):
The generously sized terminals permit connection of two conductors
with different cross-sections for the main and auxiliary circuits. The auxiliary circuit can be connected with screw terminals and alternatively
with spring-type terminals.
Mounting options
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are suitable for direct and space-saving mounting onto 3RT1 contactors and
3RW30/3RW31 soft starters as well as for stand-alone
installation.
The 3RB20 and 3RB21 solid-state overload relays up to 630 A
with internal power supply have been designed for inverse-time
delayed protection of loads with normal and heavy starting (see
"Function") against excessive temperature rises due to overload,
phase unbalance or phase failure. An overload, phase unbalance
or phase failure result in an increase of the motor current beyond
the set rated motor current. This current rise is detected by the
current transformers integrated into the devices and evaluated by
corresponding solid-state circuits which then output a pulse to the
auxiliary contacts. The auxiliary contacts then switch off the load
by means of a contactor. The break time depends on the ratio between the tripping current and current setting Ie and is stored in
the form of a long-term stable tripping characteristic (see "Characteristic Curves").
In addition to inverse-time delayed protection of loads against excessive temperature rises due to overload, phase unbalance and
phase failure, the 3RB21 solid-state overload relays also allow internal ground-fault detection (not possible in conjunction with
contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting). This provides protection of loads against high-resistance short-circuits due to damage to the insulation material, moisture, condensed water etc.
The "tripped" status is signaled by means of a switch position indicator. Resetting takes place either manually or automatically after the recovery time has elapsed (see "Function").
The devices are manufactured in accordance with environmental
guidelines and contain environmentally friendly and reusable ma-
Overload relays in contactor assemblies
for wye-delta starting
When overload relays are used in combination with contactor
assemblies for wye-delta starting it must be noted that only
0.58 times the motor current flows through the line contactor. An
overload relay mounted onto the line contactor must be set to 0.58
times the motor current.
An assignment of the 3RB20 solid-state overload relays to the line
contactors of our 3RA contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting
can be found in Chapter 3 "Controls: Contactors and Contactor
Assemblies".
When 3RB21 solid-state overload relays are used in combination
with contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting, the internal
ground-fault detection must not be activated.

For more information on the mounting options see "Technical specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Connection methods
Main circuit
All sizes of the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays can be
connected with screw terminals. As an alternative for sizes S3 to
S10/S12, the main current paths can be connected with the help
of rails. Sizes S2 to S6 of the 3RB20/3RB21 relays are also available with a straight-through transformer. In this case, the cables of
the main circuit are routed directly through the feed-through openings of the relay to the contactor terminals.
Auxiliary circuit
Connection of the auxiliary circuit (removable terminal block) is
possible with either screw or spring-type terminal connection system (special device variants).
For more information on the connection options see "Technical
specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Operation with frequency converter
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are suitable for frequencies of 50/60 Hz and the associated harmonics. This permits
the 3RB20/3RB21 overload relays to be used on the input side of
the frequency converter.
If motor protection is required on the outgoing side of the frequency converter, Siemens recommends the 3RN thermistor motor protection devices or the 3RU11 thermal overload relays for
this purpose.
Overload Relays
3RB2 Solid-State Overload Relays
3RB20, 3RB21 for standard applications
■ Function
Basic functions
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are designed for:
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from overloading
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from phase
unbalance
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from phase failure
• Protection of loads from high-resistance short-circuits (internal
ground-fault detection only with 3RB21).
Recovery time
Control circuit
TEST function
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays have an internal
power supply, i. e. no additional supply voltage is required.
With motor current flowing, the TEST button can be used to
check whether the relay is working correctly (device/solid-state
test). Current measurement, motor model and trip unit are tested. If these components are OK, the device is tripped according to the table below. If there is an error, no tripping takes
place.
Short-circuit protection
Fuses or motor starter protectors must be used for short-circuit
protection.
For assignments of the corresponding short-circuit protection
devices to the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays
with/without contactor see "Technical specifications" and
Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Trip classes
The 3RB20 solid-state overload relays are available for normal
starting conditions with trip CLASS 10 or for heavy starting conditions with trip CLASS 20 (fixed setting in each case).
The 3RB21 solid-state overload relays are suitable for normal
and heavy starting conditions. The required trip class (CLASS 5,
10, 20 or 30) can be adjusted by means of a rotary switch depending on the current start-up condition.
For details of the trip classes see "Characteristic Curves".
Phase failure protection
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are fitted with
phase failure protection (see "Characteristic Curves") in order to
minimize temperature rises of the load during single-phase operation.
Phase failure protection is not effective for loads with star-connection and a grounded neutral point or a neutral point which is
connected to a neutral conductor.
Setting
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are set to the rated
motor current by means of a rotary knob. The scale of the rotary
knob is shown in ampere.
With the 3RB21 solid-state overload relay it is also possible to select the trip class (CLASS 5, 10, 20 or 30) using a second rotary
knob and to switch the internal ground-fault detection on and off.
Manual and automatic reset
In the case of the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays, a
slide switch can be used to choose between automatic and manual resetting.
If manual reset is set, a reset can be carried out directly on the
device after a trip by pressing the blue RESET button. Resetting
is possible in combination with mechanical and mechanical reset options from the range of accessories (see Catalog LV 1,
"Accessories"). As an alternative to the mechanical RESET options, the 3RB21 solid-state overload relays can be equipped
with electrical remote RESET by applying a voltage of 24 V DC
to the terminals A3 and A4.
With the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays the recovery
time after inverse-time delayed tripping is 3 minutes when automatic RESET is set. This recovery time allows the load to cool
down.
If the button is set to manual RESET and automatic RESET, the
3RB20/3RB21 devices can be reset immediately after tripping.

Note: The TEST button must be kept pressed throughout the test.
In this case the motor current must be equal to more than 80 %
of the current setting Ie and have at least the value of the lower
current setting.
Testing of the auxiliary contacts and the control current wiring is
possible with the switch position indicator slide. Actuating the
slide simulates tripping of the relay. During this simulation the
NC contact (95-96) is opened and the NO contact (97-98) is
closed. This tests whether the auxiliary circuit has been correctly
wired.
After a test trip the relay is reset by pressing the RESET button.
Self-monitoring
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays have a self-monitoring feature, i. e. the devices constantly monitor their own basic functions and trip if an internal fault is detected.
Display of operating state
The respective operating state of the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state
overload relays is displayed by means of the position of the marking on the switch position indicator slide. After tripping due to
overload, phase failure, phase unbalance or ground fault
(ground-fault detection possible only with 3RB21) the marking
on the slide is to left on the "O" mark, otherwise it is on the "I"
mark.
Auxiliary contacts
The 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays are fitted with an
NO contact for the "tripped" signal, and an NC contact for switching off the contactor.
If the slide switch is set to automatic RESET, the relay is reset
automatically.
The time between tripping and resetting is determined by the
recovery time.

Characteristic curves
The smallest current used for tripping is called the minimum tripping current. According to IEC 60947-4-1, this current must be
within specified limits. The limits of the total tripping current for
the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays for symmetrical
three-pole loads are between 105 and 120 % of the current
setting.

Tripping time
The tripping characteristics show the relationship between the
tripping time and tripping current as multiples of the current
setting Ie and are given for symmetrical three-pole and two-pole
loads from the cold state.

5 … 10 s
CLASS 20

CLASS 30
20 … 30 s
The tripping characteristic for a three-pole overload relay from
the cold state (see illustration 1) only apply if all three phases are
simultaneously loaded with the same current. In the event of a
phase failure the 3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays
switch off the contactor more quickly in order to minimize heating
of the load in accordance with the tripping characteristic for twopole loads from the cold state (see illustration 2). With phase unbalance the devices switch off depending on the degree of the
unbalance between the two characteristic curves.
Compared with a cold load, a load at operating temperature obviously has a lower temperature reserve. The tripping time of the
3RB20/3RB21 solid-state overload relays is reduced therefore to
about 20 % when loaded with the current setting Ie for an extended period.

Siemens · 2010
The modular, solid-state overload relays with external power supply type 3RB22 (with monostable auxiliary contacts) and type
3RB23 (with bistable auxiliary contacts) up to 630 A (up to 820 A
possible with a series transformer) have been designed for inverse-time delayed protection of loads with normal and heavy
starting (see "Function") against excessive temperature rises due
to overload, phase unbalance or phase failure. An overload,
phase unbalance or phase failure result in an increase of the motor current beyond the set rated motor current. This current rise is
detected by means of a current measuring module and electronically evaluated by a special evaluation module which is connected to it. The evaluation electronics sends a signal to the auxiliary contacts. The auxiliary contacts then switch off the load by
means of a contactor. The break time depends on the ratio
between the tripping current and current setting Ie and is stored
in the form of a long-term stable tripping characteristic (see "Characteristic Curves"). The "tripped" status is signaled by means of a
continuous red "OVERLOAD" LED.
The LED indicates imminent tripping of the relay due to overload,
phase unbalance or phase failure by flickering when the limit current has been violated. This warning can also be issued as a signal through auxiliary contacts.
In addition to the described inverse-time delayed protection of
loads against excessive temperature rises, the 3RB22/3RB23
solid-state overload relays also allow direct temperature monitoring of the motor windings (full motor protection) by connection
with short-circuit and open-circuit detection of a PTC sensor circuit. With this temperature-dependent protection, the loads can
be protected against overheating caused indirectly by reduced
coolant flow, for example, which cannot be detected by means of
the current alone. In the event of overheating, the devices switch
off the contactor, and thus the load, by means of the auxiliary contacts. The "tripped" status is signaled by means of a continuously
illuminated "THERMISTOR" LED.
To also protect the loads against high-resistance short-circuits
due to damage to the insulation, humidity, condensed water, etc.,
the 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays offer the possibility
of internal ground-fault detection in conjunction with a function expansion module (for details see Catalog LV 1,
"Selection and ordering data"; not possible in conjunction with
contactor assembly for wye-delta starting). In the event of a
ground fault the 3RB22/3RB23 relays trip. The "tripped" status is
signaled by means of a continuous red "GND FAULT" LED. Signaling through auxiliary contacts is also possible.
After tripping due to overload, phase unbalance, phase failure,
thermistor or ground-fault tripping, the relay is reset manually or
automatically after the recovery time has elapsed (see
"Function").
In conjunction with a function expansion module the motor current
measured by the microprocessor can be output in the form of an
analog signal 4 ... 20 mA DC for operating rotary coil instruments
or for feeding into analog inputs of programmable logic controllers. With an additional AS-Interface analog module the current
values can also be transferred over the AS-i bus
system.
The devices are manufactured in accordance with environmental
guidelines and contain environmentally friendly and reusable materials.
They comply with all important worldwide standards and
approvals.

"Increased safety" type of protection EEx e acc. to ATEX directive 94/9/EC
The 3RB22 (monostable) solid-state overload relays are suitable
for the overload protection of explosion-proof motors with "increased safety" type of protection EEx e;
see Catalog LV 1, Chapter 20 "Appendix" --> "Standards and Approvals" --> "Type Overview of Approved Devices for ExplosionProtected Areas (ATEX Explosion Protection)".
■ Design
Device concept
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are based on a
modular device concept. Each device always comprises an evaluation module, which is independent of the motor current, and
a current measuring module, which is dependent on the motor
current. The two modules are electrically interconnected by a
connection cable through the system interface.
The basic functionality of the evaluation module can be optionally expanded with corresponding function expansion modules. The function expansion modules are integrated in the
evaluation module for this purpose through a simple plug-in connection.
Mounting options
Current measuring modules
The current measuring modules size S00/S0 and S2/S3 are designed for stand-alone installation. By contrast, the current
measuring modules size S6 and S10/S12 are suitable for standalone installation and mounting onto contactors.
Evaluation modules
The evaluation modules can be mounted either on the current
measuring module (only sizes S00/S0 and S2/S3) or separately.
For more information on the mounting options see "Technical
specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Connection methods
Main circuit (current measuring module)
For sizes S00/S0, S2/S3 and S6, the main circuit can also be
connected by the straight-through transformer method. In this
case, the cables of the main circuit are routed directly through
the feed-through openings of the relay to the contactor
terminals.
For sizes S6 and S10/S12, the main circuit can be connected
with the help of rails. In conjunction with the corresponding box
terminals, screw connection is also possible.
Auxiliary circuit (evaluation module)
Connection of the auxiliary circuit (removable joint block) is possible with either screw or spring-type terminal connection system (special versions).
For more information on the connection options see "Technical
specifications" and Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".
Overload relays in contactor assemblies
for wye-delta starting
When overload relays are used in combination with contactor
assemblies for wye-delta starting it must be noted that only
0.58 times the motor current flows through the line contactor. An
overload relay mounted onto the line contactor must be set to
0.58 times the motor current.
When 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are used in
combination with contactor assemblies for wye-delta starting,
the function expansion modules for internal ground-fault detection must not be used.
Operation with frequency converter
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are suitable for frequencies of 50/60 Hz and the associated harmonics. This permits the 3RB22/3RB23 overload relays to be used on the input
side of the frequency converter.
If motor protection is required on the outgoing side of the frequency converter, Siemens recommends the 3RN thermistor
motor protection devices or the 3RU11 thermal overload relays
for this purpose.

■ Function
Basic functions
Trip classes
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are designed for:
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from overloading
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from phase
unbalance
• Inverse-time delayed protection of loads from phase failure
• Temperature-dependent protection of loads by connecting a
PTC sensor circuit
• Protection of loads from high-resistance short-circuits (internal
ground-fault detection; detection of fault currents > 30 % of the
current setting Ie)
• Output of an overload warning
• Output of an analog signal 4 to 20 mA DC as image of the flowing motor current
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are suitable for normal and heavy starting conditions. The required trip class
(CLASS 5, 10, 20 or 30) can be adjusted by means of a rotary
switch depending on the current start-up condition.
The basic functions of the evaluation modules in conjunction with
function expansion modules are listed in the following table:

Phase failure protection
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are fitted with phase
failure protection (see "Characteristic Curves") in order to minimize temperature rises of the load during single-phase operation.
Setting
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays are set to the rated
motor current by means of two rotary knobs.
• The upper rotary knob (CLASS/Iemax) is divided into 4 ranges:
1 A, 10 A, 100 A and 1000 A. The zone must be selected which
corresponds to the rated motor current and the current measuring module to be used with it. With the range selected the required trip class (CLASS 5, 10, 20 or 30) can be determined.
• The lower rotary knob with percent scale (10 ... 100 %) is then
used to set the rated motor current in percent of the range selected with the upper rotary knob.
Example
• Rating of induction motor = 45 kW (AC 50 Hz, 400 V)
• Rated motor current = 80 A
• Required trip class = CLASS 20
• Selected transformer: 10 ... 100 A
Solution
• Step 1: Use the upper rotary knob (CLASS) to select the 100 A
range
• Step 2: Within the 100 A range set the trip class CLASS 20
• Step 3: Set the lower rotary knob to 80 % (= 0.8) corresponding
to 100 A × 0.8 = 80 A.

Control circuit
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays require an external
power supply, i. e. an additional supply voltage is necessary.
Power is supplied through a wide-range power supply unit for 24
to 240 V AC/DC.
Short-circuit protection
Fuses or motor starter protectors must be used for short-circuit
protection.
For assignments of the corresponding short-circuit protection devices to the 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays with/without
contactor see "Technical specifications" and
Catalog LV 1, "Selection and ordering data".

For details of the trip classes see "Characteristic Curves".
Siemens · 2010
Manual and automatic reset
If manual reset is set, a reset can be carried out directly on the device after a trip by pressing the blue TEST/RESET button. A remote
RESET can be carried out electrically by jumpering the terminals
Y1 and Y2.
If the slide switch is set to automatic RESET, the relay is reset automatically.
The time between tripping and resetting is determined by the recovery time.

time after inverse-time delayed tripping is approx. 3 minutes regardless of the selected reset mode. The recovery time allows
the load to cool down.
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays have two outputs,
each with one NO contact and one NC contact. Their basic assignment/function may be influenced by function expansion modules.
However, in the event of temperature-dependent tripping by
means of a connected PTC sensor circuit, the device can only
be manually or automatically reset once the winding temperature at the installation location of the PTC thermistor has fallen
5 Kelvin below its response temperature.
The 3RB22 and 3RB23 differ with respect to the tripping characteristics of their auxiliary contacts – monostable or bistable:
After a ground-fault tripping the 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relay trips can be reset immediately without a recovery time.
TEST function
The combined TEST/RESET button can be used to check
whether the relay is working correctly. The test can be aborted at
any time by letting go of the TEST/RESET button.
LEDs, the device configuration (this depends on which expansion module is plugged in) and the device hardware are tested
while the button is kept pressed for 6 seconds. Simultaneously
and for another 18 seconds a direct current proportional in size
to the maximum phase of the main current is fed in at the terminals I(+) and I(-). By comparing the analog signal, which is to be
measured, with the main current, the accuracy of the current
measurement can be determined. In this case 4 mA corresponds to 0 % and 20 mA to 125 % of the current setting. After
24 seconds the auxiliary contacts are switched and the feeder
switch off as the result, bringing the test to an end.
After a test trip a faultless relay is reset by pressing the TEST/
RESET button. If a hardware fault is detected, the device trips
and cannot be reset.
Self-monitoring
The 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays have a self-monitoring feature, i. e. the devices constantly monitor their own basic functions and trip if an internal fault is detected.
The monostable 3RB22 solid-state overload relays will enter the
"tripped" state if the control voltage fails (> 200 ms), and return
to the original state they were in before the control supply voltage failed when the voltage returns. These devices are therefore especially suited for plants in which the control voltage is not
strictly monitored.
The bistable 3RB23 overload relays do not change their "tripped"
or "not tripped" status if the control voltage fails. The auxiliary
contacts only switch over in the event of an overload and if the
supply voltage is present. These devices are therefore especially suited for plants in which the control voltage is monitored
separately.
Response if the control supply voltage fails
If the control supply voltage fails for more than 0.2 s, the output
relays respond differently depending on the version: monostable
or bistable.

The particular operating state of the 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state
overload relays is displayed by means of four LEDs:
• Green "READY" LED: A continuous green light signals that the
overload relay is ready for operation. The 3RB22/3RB23 overload relays are not ready (LED "OFF") if there is no control supply voltage or if the function test was negative.
• Red "GND FAULT" LED: A continuous red light signals a ground
fault.
• Red "THERMISTOR" LED: A continuous red light signals a temperature-dependent trip.
• Red "OVERLOAD" LED: A continuous red light signals an inverse-time delayed trip; a flickering red light signals an imminent inverse-time delayed trip (overload warning).

IEC 60947-4-1:
The contactor or starter must not endanger persons or the installation in the
event of a short-circuit.
Type of coordination "1": The contactor or the starter may be non-operational after every short-circuit release.
Type of coordination "2": The contactor or the starter must be operational
after a short-circuit release (without replacement of parts). There is a risk of
contact welding.
3) Contactors not mountable.

■ Characteristic curves
The smallest current used for tripping is called the minimum tripping current. According to IEC 60947-4-1, this current must be
within specified limits. The limits of the minimum tripping current
for the 3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays for symmetrical
three-pole loads lie between 105 and 120 % of the current
setting.

800
600
Tripping time
The tripping characteristics show the relationship between the
tripping time and tripping current as multiples of the current
setting Ie and are given for symmetrical three-pole and two-pole
loads from the cold state.
NSB0_01525

The tripping characteristic starts with the minimum tripping current and continues with higher tripping currents based on the
characteristics of the so-called trip classes (CLASS 10,
CLASS 20 etc.). The trip classes describe time intervals within
which the overload relays have to trip with 7.2 times the current
setting Ie from the cold state for symmetrical three-pole loads.
40
The tripping times according to IEC 60947-4-1,
tolerance band E, are as follows for:

CLASS 20

CLASS 30
20 … 30 s
The tripping characteristic for a three-pole overload relay from
the cold state (see illustration 1) only apply if all three phases are
simultaneously loaded with the same current. In the event of a
phase failure or a current unbalance of more than 40 %, the
3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays switch off the contactor more quickly in order to minimize heating of the load in accordance with the tripping characteristic for two-pole loads from
the cold state (see illustration 2).
Compared with a cold load, a load at operating temperature obviously has a lower temperature reserve. The tripping time of the
3RB22/3RB23 solid-state overload relays is reduced therefore to
about 20 % when loaded with the current setting Ie for an extended period.
