Electroswitch   introduces   its   new Control Indicator Module with  serial networking   capability.   Allowing connection to a multidrop network, this powerful    new    substation automation product allows multiple users complete access to monitoring and control functions for up to three breaker  trip  coils  (single,  dual,  or triple coils) while providing a local manual failsafe switch.   The Serial CIM offers  tremendous versatility in a very small package by combining the functions of sev- eral   switches,   monitors    and annunciating   devices  into  one compact  modular  enclosure  that can  be  horizontally  or  vertically mounted in a space less than 13 sq. in. It provides local or remote capabili- ty to trip and close  a circuit breaker (from up to 32 devices) through any of the following three  methods:  (A) From   a   manual   control   switch mounted  on  its  front  panel,    (B) using a signal from any protective relay device, and (C) from a remote signal   through   its   interface   with SCADA. In  addition  to  the  manual  Control Switch  located  on  the  CIM  front panel,   two   toggle   switches   also located  on  the  front  panel  allow manual control (enable/disable) of the   Automatic   Reclose   function, and the connection with supervisory control. The CIM’s interface electronics   also  monitor  and p r o vide for local  front panel annunciation of several events.  A Red  LED  will  continuously  glow provided  the  breaker  trip  coil  is operational.      Two  Amber   LEDs indicate  the  status  of  the  external reclose  relay  and  the  interface  to SCADA.  A Green LED monitors and  glows  indicating  a  trip  signal and  its  source.    In  the  event  of  a trip, it would flash rapidly, slowly, or remain lit to indicate that indeed there  was  a  trip,  and  that  it  was initiated   by   either   SCADA,   the manual  control  switch,  or  from  a protective relay device.   The  CIM  easily  incorporates  into new   or   existing   systems   using Modbus or DNP3 communications protocols. A variety of versions are available for   specialized   applications,   for example,  custom  configuration  of reclose, neutral trip (51 CS) control, and   mobile   switch   yard   control functions.  Consult  the  factory  for your requirements. The  Serial  CIM...  just  one  of  the many  new  and  exciting  products available for enhancing substation automation while providing manual failsafe overrides.
