Distance Protection IED GRZ200

Product Overview

The GRZ200 distance protection IED has been designed to provide distance protection and control functions for application to transmission lines and distribution feeders at all voltage levels. The device can be applied to the protection of both long and short lines, parallel lines and underground cables, and can also be used to provide backup protection for generators, transformers and reactors. Optional bay control and monitoring functions are also provided within the flexible and user-friendly GR-200 Series platform.
