Installation and operation recommendation

Switchgear aging resistance

The switchgears resistance to aging depends upon 3 factors.

Ventilation control: Provide area ventilation, heating, and air conditioning to maintain the ambient temperature around the equipment between - 5 C and 40 C.

The necessity of correct implementation of connections: New cold-shrink or slip-on technology offers ease of installation. The effect of the relative humidity factor: Heating resistor installation is essential in climates with a high rate of relative humidity and with significant temperature differentials.

Operation

It is strongly advised to periodically carry out (minimum every 2 years) a few operation cycles on operating devices. Outside normal conditions of use (between - 5 C and 40 C, absence of dust, corrosive gas, etc.), it is recommended to verify the steps to be taken in order to ensure correct functioning of the installation. Contact the Schneider Electric Service Center for help to do so.

The Service Center is able to assist you at any time to offer you:

All operations described hereafter must be carried out in compliance with the safety standards in force, under the responsibility of a competent person.

Autotransformer taps

Autotransformers

Autotransformers are normally tapped at 50%65%80%. The standard factory setting used is 65%. Standard reduced-voltage starters make the transition from reduced to full voltage based on the operation of a current transition relay. As the motor accelerates, the current drawn will decrease. When the motor is near full speed, the relay will sense the drop in current and initiate the transition to full voltage. Transition based on a simple timing relay is not recommended. Increased loads may be placed on the power system, starter, motor, and driven equipment if a transition occurs before the motor is up to speed. If this method is used, refer to the electrical schematics provided with the line-up.

Relay setting

The current transition relay setting is user selectable with 100% being the recommended default setting. An incomplete sequence timer will open the starter if the current relay has not initiated transition before the timer times out. The timer should be set to a maximum of 30 seconds. The current relay setting may be increased to its maximum value of 120% if transition does not occur. If the starter does not transition in 30 seconds with the current relay set at its maximum of 120%, the motor does not have sufficient starting torque for the connected load. The motor must be unloaded or the starting torque increased. To increase starting torque, the autotransformer must be moved from the 65% tap setting to the 80% tap setting. steps to change tap settings

Operating instructions

Functions
Monitoring of temperature buildup in 2 zones

The MDT107 module performs the following functions: Each CFO733 sensor corresponds to a 3-point zone to be monitored in the panel, monitoring being based on temperature rise. The module measures the temperature at 3 points per zone, as well as the ambient temperature in order to calculate the temperature rise for each point. Given the temperature differences between the inside of the LV cabinet and the outside of the enclosure, correction of the ambient temperature measured by the module is configured by means of an additional setting. Comparison monitoring is used with a maximum temperature rise threshold, which may be adjusted separately for each zone and is common to the 3 measurement points. This form of monitoring is completed by a fixed maximum absolute sensor temperature threshold. Therefore, the module includes 3 settings, to which access is sealed after the ambient temperature settings are made on site.

Triggering of a pre-alarm

When the temperature rise at 1 of the 3 points reaches a first set point equal to 85% (1) of the preset threshold for the zone, or when 1 of the 3 points reaches the maximum absolute temperature of 115 C (239 F), a pre-alarm is generated that results in:
activation of the pre-alarm indication relay common to the 2 zones. activation in flashing mode of 1 of the 6 front panel indicators that identify the zone and related point.

Triggering of an alarm

When the temperature rise at 1 of the 3 points reaches the preset maximum threshold (2) for the zone, or when 1 of the 3 points reaches the maximum absolute temperature of 120 C (248 F), an alarm is generated that results in:
activation of the alarm power relay common to the 2 zones. activation in constant mode of 1 of the 6 front panel indicators that identify the zone and related point.

(1) This is a fixed value; it can not be modified. (2) These 7 setting values are defined at the factory. They are identified as A to G. See Wiring and operation for MDT107.

Operating instructions

Self-monitoring of the module

The MDT107 module has internal self-tests and is equipped with an indicator that indicates availability:
each time the module is initialized. The indicator turns on in constant mode when the module is switched on and then turns off after the module initialization phase is successfully completed, unless the required sensors are missing (see Self-monitoring of sensorsbelow). in steady-state operation. If a fault is detected, the indicator turns on in constant mode.

Availability indicator

In both cases, the pre-alarm output contact is also activated when the indicator is steadily on. Self-monitoring of sensors The module provides continuous monitoring of the connected sensor(s). An Off position is included in the settings for each zone for the various situations that can occur:

If no sensors are connected to the module, the:


indicator is on and flashes pre-alarm output contact is activated 6 sensor identification indicators are off

If 1 of the 3 points of each sensor is detected as being faulty (cut or damaged fibers, malfunction of sensor-embedded electronics, etc.), the:
indicator is on and flashes pre-alarm output contact is activated indicator linked to the faulty measurement point flashes

When only 1 zone is connected, the unused zone should be set to Off. If this is not done, the 3 points of the related zone are detected as being faulty.
