GE's EntelliGuard TU Trip Unit
Product Announcement from GE Industrial Solutions
GE's EntelliGuard TU is the trip unit with the built-in flexibility required to match your system's needs, whether for optimum safety, optimum system reliability, or both at the same time. Whether you're using all GE circuit breakers or a mixed system of breakers and fusible devices, the EntelliGuard TU will accommodate your needs with minimal compromise and maximum functionality.
The EntelliGuard TU trip unit provides the industry's most advanced instantaneous protection without compromising system selectivity.
MVT+ Trip Units Restricted status in 2011. MVT M/PM Trip Units will be Obsoleted in 2012. Learn more.
Features and Benefits:
- Instantaneous - Zone Selective Interlocking (I-ZSI)
Builds on the Short Time and Ground fault interlocking by now providing the ability to overlap the Instantaneous setting on the Main and Feeder breakers. Now I-ZSI can be used for selectivity!
- Instantaneous - Waveform Recognition
Instantaneous trip is based on the amount of energy and duration versus a threshold current setting (MVT). Improves coordination with current limiting devices by discerning whether a downstream breaker/fuse is clearing the fault. Provides ability to set the Instantaneous pickup below the peak let thru of a downstream current limiting device while maintaining selectivity!
- RELT- Reduced Energy Let Through with Positive Feedback
Two independent instantaneous settings selectable via an external switch or Modbus communications with positive indication via an output contact. Commonly referred to in the industry as an "Arc Flash Switch" or "Maintenance Switch."
