New voltage monitoring relays from Novatek-Electro

01.02.2024

Novatek-Electro LLC, one of the leading Russian manufacturers of electrical products, has announced the launch of a new line of voltage monitoring relays. In fairness, it is worth noting that this line is not a continuation of the line of existing relays. The main purpose of the new relays is to replace the PH-125, PH-132, PH-140, PH-150, PH-163, PH-125T, PH-132T, PH-140T, PH-150T, PH-163T relays that are being discontinued.

The first thing that immediately catches your eye when comparing the new relays with the relays of the old series is the separation of the terminals for connecting the power supply and connecting the load to opposite sides.

For older series relays, the power and load connection terminals are located on the bottom of the housing, and use a common neutral (zero) terminal. This solution not only avoids errors when connecting the relay, but also significantly reduces the width of the housing. The new relays have a case width of 36mm, compared to 52.5mm for the old ones. Considering that the voltage monitoring relays must be operated in a network protected by an automatic switch, this parameter is not unimportant.

Схема включения

Like other types of voltage monitoring relays, the new relays are designed to protect household and industrial equipment (refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, etc.) from unacceptable voltage fluctuations in the network and the consequences of a neutral break (zero).

The voltage relay has overheating protection, and turns off the load if the temperature inside the product body exceeds 85°C (when the rated load current is exceeded, due to poor contact, or weak clamping of the terminal block screws).

Relays PH-40tc, PH-50tc and PH-63tc, in addition, additionally control the temperature of each contact and, if the temperature of any contact exceeds 85°C, turn off the load. In addition, the relay stores information about the last five accidents in non-volatile memory.

The product is powered by a circuit feeding the load. The display located on the front of the relay indicates the effective voltage value at the input contacts. An LED indicator located next to it indicates the presence of voltage at the output contacts.

The product is designed for use in the following conditions:

  • ambient temperature from -35 to +55°C;
  • atmospheric pressure from 84 to 106.7 kPa;
  • the relative humidity of the air (at a temperature of +25°C) is 30...80%.

Attention! The product is not intended for use in conditions of significant vibration and shock, high humidity, aggressive environment with acids, alkalis, etc. in the air, as well as heavy pollution (grease, oil, dust, etc.). The product is not intended for switching loads in case of short circuits. The voltage relay must be operated in a network protected by class "B" circuit breakers with trip currents corresponding to the selected relay type.
