The SE-330 is an advanced ground-fault and neutral-grounding resistor monitoring relay that is compliant with Rule 10-302 of the 2018 Canadian Electrical Code Part I (CE Code). It measures neutral current, neutral-to-ground voltage, and neutral-to-ground resistance. It provides continuous monitoring of the neutral-to-ground path to verify that the neutral-grounding resistor (NGR) is intact and that it has not been bypassed or shorted. An open NGR renders current sensing ground-fault protection inoperative and could result in a false belief that the system is functioning properly. A shorted NGR results in higher-than-expected ground-fault current. A unique LED flashing code provides external confirmation for plant safety teams and inspectors when standards-compliant protection has been configured and is active.
The SE-330 can be used with low- and medium-voltage transformers and generators with low- or high-resistance grounding used in processing, manufacturing, chemical, pulp and paper, petroleum, and water-treatment facilities. For applications above 35 kV, use the SE-330HV. For applications that require conformance to Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 2081, use the SE-330AU.
Complete setup of the SE-330 requires connection to a PC running SE-MON330 v4.10 or higher.
For applications where existing switchgear is inaccessible or where a separate control panel is desirable, the SE-330 is also available within a NEMA 4X enclosure. The NGRM-ENC Series is available various options, including a surface-mounted or door-mounted SE-330, to fit the specific customer application.
