Application

The Flair 3xx directional fault passage indicators are designed for underground MV networks with isolated or compensated earthing. They can also be used on underground MV networks with impedant earthing. They provide a light indication allowing to localize the fault.

Flair 370: 220 Vac + lithium battery power supply. Flair 310: lithium battery power supply (when no LV power supply available).

Description

Flair 3xx fault passage indicators are made of ABS polycarbonat sealable box. b Operation mode and functions:

  • v adaptation to the voltage sensors using dip-switches,

  • v various user configurable parameters: detection parameters, reset functions

and output contact behaviour,

  • v optional settings, test and reset functions by magnetic button.

b Light indication Green, Red or alternate Green/Red blinking according to fault type and location. b Fault counters Number of transient and permanent faults. b Display: 4x12.7 mm digits Displays fault counters and optional settings. b 2 output contacts Indication of transient and/or permanent faults.

Sensors

b 2 types of current sensors installation are possible:

  • v single CT installation: phase-to-earth faults only (installation on 3-core cable),

  • v 3 phase CTs installation: phase-to-earth and phase-to-phase faults.

Detection principle

Flair 3xx detection principle is based on the analysis of transients of residual voltage Vr (= 3 V0) and residual current Ir (= 3 I0), in the next ms following the fault. b At the time when the phase-to-earth fault occurs, the fault direction is determined according to phase comparison of Vr and Ir.

b The fault will be confirmed if Vr is still present after a configurable time delay (default 50 ms). Indication

of transient fault (counter and optionally output contact) will follow. b The fault will be confirmed as permanent (protection tripping or power presence under earth fault conditions) after the possible reclosing cycles before starting permanent fault indication (light indication and optionally output contact).
