One external keyboard and mouse shall be provided which can be connected to
the CC through connector. This keyboard will be connected to CC as and when
required for large data entry during initial programming or whenever changes
are required.
5.4 REMOTE DISPLAY UNIT (RDU):
5.4.1 The RDU of control power supply is to display ‘Total MCBs Tripped’, ‘MCB
Tag No.’ and Panel No.’ as per Figure – 1 of this specification. The RDU shall
be located on Main Control Panel no. 6610-PL-8. The RDU shall receive the
information from CC. Provision shall be made to display status of all tripped
MCBs cyclically on demand. If a new MCB trips then “Total MCBs Tripped”
advances by one and ‘MCB Tag No.” and its location and type are displayed in
the flashing mode along with flashing of an alarm red lamp and “MCB TRIP”
LED on the front panel. On acknowledging the alarm by pressing the ‘ACK’
key, alarm disappears and all displays become steady. If another MCB trips
before the previous alarmed MCB is acknowledged, the data of new MCB is
displayed in the flashing mode with ‘Total MCBs Tripped advanced by one.
Pressing ‘ACK’ switch clears the alarm signal and makes the display steady in
the latest address and status.

Whenever an MCB comes to normal state i.e. MCB ‘closed’ “Total MCBs
Tripped” reduces by one, “MCB CLEAR” LED, ‘MCB Tag No.” and its
location i.e. “Panel No” & type and a green alarm clear lamp are displayed in
flashing mode. On pressing the ‘ACK’ key, ‘Alarm clear’ lamp and “MCB
CLEAR” LED goes off, display switches to the state of currently open “MCB
Tag No.”
The sequence of operation of the ‘Alarm’ red LED and the ‘Alarm clear’ green
LED for various events such as MCB trip, rectification of MCB trip etc. are
given in the Table – B. The LEDs showing the status of the MCBs (i.e.) ‘open’
and ‘close’ are exactly similar to the ‘Alarm’ red LED and “Alarm clear” green
LED, respectively.
The operation of acknowledge function shall be possible either by ‘ACK’ key
provided in CC or by ‘ACK’ key provided in RDU.

The cut out space available in Main Control Panel 6610-PL-8 for mounting
RDU is limited to 170mm (H) x 130mm (W) mm x 280mm (D) and overall
dimension shall be 170mm (H) x 152mm (W) x 280mm (D). The RDU for
control power supply shall be provided with a hooter, a red colour LED for
annunciating ‘MCB TRIP’ and a green column LED for annunciating ‘MCB

6.0 Mode
The CC shall operate in the following 2 basic modes on selectable basis. The
current mode of operation shall be clearly indicated on the display.
(1) Program mode (2) Auto mode
6.1 Program Mode
This mode is basically used to input basic system parameters during
installation and later on during changes incorporated in the system. Suitable
locking arrangement shall be provided for accessing this mode to avoid
tampering by unauthorized personnel. During this mode the system shall carry
out normal operation in the background and if any alarm appears during this
period, the same shall be displayed in the flashing mode. The program mode is
used to set the following parameters initially.
(i) Panel No. & LCM channel designation no. (ii) MCB Tag no. (iii)
Designation of MCB as AC or DC or spare (iv) Time (v) Date (vi) Serial
Printer status On/Off (vii) Display Rate
“Panel No.” is 9 digit display and “MCB Tag No.” is 4 digit display. “Total
MCB Tripped” is 4 digit displays.
For any irrational entry like an unacceptable MCB address or code, the system
will give “ERR” indication in the front panel of CC. This indication gets
cleared by pressing the ‘ACK’ key. During editing, saving of data shall be
through confirmation. Switching back to Auto mode shall be possible only
after this stage.
6.2 Auto mode
It is normal operating mode of the system. In this mode, features like list
displays, mimic displays, alarm/event detection, alarm/event display,
alarm/event storage and other utilities are provided. Also scanning of LCM’s
continues and hence alarms are detected by the CC. By selecting this option,
user shall be able to switch CC from program mode to auto mode. After
selecting this feature, program mode menu shall be disabled, utility menu and
main menu shall be enabled.
6.3 Scanning
All the MCBs except spare MCBs shall be sequentially scanned for getting

NUCLEAR POWER CORPORATION OF INDIA LTD.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION FOR MCB STATUS MONITORING PAGE : 10 of 38
SYSTEM OF RAPS-3&4 REV. NO. : 0

‘normal’ or ‘alarm’ state of MCBs. One scanning cycle including display shall
be completed within 10 seconds. “Total MCB Tripped”, “MCB Tag No.’’
“Panel No.” where the MCB is located and ‘type’ of latest tripped MCB are
displayed. Provision shall be made to display status of all tripped MCBs
cyclically on demand. If a new MCB trips then “Total MCB Tripped”
advances by one and ‘MCB Tag No.” and its location and type are displayed
in red colour in the flashing mode. On acknowledging the alarm by pressing
the ‘ACK’ key, all displays become steady. If another MCB trips before the
previous alarmed MCB is acknowledged, the data of new MCB is displayed in
red colour in the flashing mode with ‘Total MCB Tripped advanced by one.
Pressing ‘ACK’ switch makes the display steady.
Whenever an MCB comes to normal state i.e. MCB ‘closed’ “Total MCB
Tripped” reduces by one, “MCB Tag No.” and its location i.e. “Panel No” &
type are displayed in green colour in flashing mode. On pressing the ‘ACK’
key, display become steady.
Once an MCB has generated trip alarm, its data is stored in CC memory and it
does not generate an alarm in the subsequent scans. Spare MCBs do not
generate any alarm and are ignored by CC.
6.4 Printing details
In the normal condition, when the CPU of the CC works in either ‘program’ or
‘auto’ mode , the serial printer logs.
