Feeder Condition Monitor – Digital short circuit indicator with measuring function for medium voltage switchgears. The key to continuous improvement in the power supply is accurate knowledge about the relevant circumstances of the local energy supply system. Functionality: The SICAM FCM (Feeder Condition Monitor) is a phasefault and ground-fault indicator with directional indication that operates with protection algorithms and low-power current transformer technology as per IEC 60044-8/ IEC 61869-10 or the conventional 1 A/5 A instrument transformers. As an alternative, the SICAM FCM can also be connected using a capacitive voltage tap, thus effecting economical directional fault detection in the cable network. The SICAM FCM additionally offers the possibility of providing up-to-date measured values via the integrated Modbus RTU interface, thus ensuring a precise assessment of the distribution system. Cost-effective measuring device for use in Low voltage switchgears. The SICAM FCM (Feeder Condition Monitor) also performs well as a low-cost power meter in a low-voltage power system. It is optimized for flush mounting in low-voltage switch bays because of the low height.
