Line Differential Protection IED GRL200

Product Overview

The GRL200 line protection IED provides both line differential and distance protection functions in a single, powerful package. The high-speed, phase-segregated line differential protection is applicable to both overhead lines and underground cables with up to three terminals, communicating either over direct fiber optic links or via telecommunications multiplexer interfaces. Zero-phase sequence differential protection enables sensitive detection for high-resistance faults. Optional bay control and monitoring functions are also provided within the flexible and user-friendly GR-200 Series platform.
