MEprotect can be used in MCCs, switchgear panels, or generator protection cabinets, with or without an HMI. Its fieldbus interfaces allow easy integration with PLCs, DCSs and SCADA systems.
The illustration shows integration of a MEprotect-based protection system with Mitsubishi Electric’s PMSXpro® DCS using Profibus or Profinet. Similar integration can be easily achieved with MAPS SCADA.
Standardised functions in Mitsubishi Electric’s DCS and SCADA allow plug and- play monitoring and control of the protected equipment. Similarly, equipment can be switched on and off and monitored remotely.
In addition, these functions allow remote, centralised setting and resetting of MEprotect relays and downloading of operational data logs. This means MEprotect relays can be deployed in hazardous or geographically remote locations.
