When do I have to use type-B residual current protection in my installation?

We would like to inform you about current regulations and all the key aspects that you need to take into account for the correct selection of the type of residual current device to be installed. The evolution of electronics in electrical installations means that we need to know what type of residual current device protection is ideal for each type of load, in order to correctly protect both people and the installation itself.
This is why we present our new type B residual current protection family, which is the required protection when there may be a leakage of alternating, pulsating or direct current. Find out why you should use type-B residual current protection devices and what benefits they bring to your installation.

Protect your installation the right way

Avoid risks by selecting the right protection for each type of load

 

Type-A and AC residual current protection devices do not detect DC residual currents and can trip spuriously or lock up, jeopardizing service continuity and putting the installation and/or personnel at serious risk

 

Type-A Residual current protection

The protection required by the manufacturers themselves

 

Manufacturers of devices with power electronics, including variable-speed drives, UPS, EV charging points, etc., require type-B residual current devices to be installed to ensure their loads are properly protected.

Discover all the benefits of type-B residual current protection and when it has to be installed.

 

 

Technology to serve users

 

On RGU-100B and CBS-400B devices, the screen changes to red when a trip occurs, storing the total leakage value. This value is broken down to show both the AC and DC component of the leak. This features offers relevant information to let the user pinpoint the exact location of the leak.

Raption 100. The perfect combination of power, versatility and elegance

A compact charger capable of providing up to 100 kW DC, enough to charge the electric vehicles of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

 

In an era of constant innovation and development by electric vehicle manufacturers, there is an increasing number of cars with higher capacity batteries, and thus longer ranges. In addition, more and more vehicles are integrating drivelines that double the voltage of their predecessors, going from the 400V of the first models to the 800V of the most recent electric cars. At Circutor, we are at the forefront of charging solutions, which is why we are presenting the Raption 100, a compact, high-power charger that can recharge the electric vehicles of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

What is the Raption 100?

 

The Raption 100 is a charger with a DC power of up to 100 kW, capable of charging using both the COMBO CCS and CHAdeMO standards. It also features an extra hose for simultaneously charging a second car with up to 22 kW of AC power.

The Raption series is an established range of products in the realm of fast, public charging stations. It started out with the Raption 22 model in 2016, which has since evolved by applying the experience gained to add improvements and adapt to the needs of the current and future market. This device evolved directly from Raption 50, a device with more than 3 years of market experience and over 1000 units sold in 2019. The Raption 100 maintains the enclosure and all the strong points of the Raption 50, while doubling its charging power.

Highlights of the Raption 100

Usability

 

Maintains the easy and intuitive charging experience of its predecessor with an 8-inch touchscreen, with 27 languages to choose from, courtesy light and the option to add an integrated contactless card payment system.

Reliability

 

The modular architecture of Raption devices allows them to stay in service even if a problem occurs in a module, since the charger automatically disconnects it and uses the remaining ones. This increases their availability and ensures that drivers won't be stranded and unable to recharge.

Safety

 

The Raption 100 also maintains the connector lock, preventing vandalism by making it impossible to release the connector unless the user is authenticated. In addition, the devices with 5-metre cables will feature a floating cable design for easier handling that avoids contact with the ground. This prevents potential damage, enhances safety and reduces maintenance costs.

Customisation

 

Both the enclosure and the Raption 100 screen are 100% customisable, allowing the device to be fully covered in vinyl showing images of the brand, or to show advertising on the touch display screensaver.

Master/Slave System

 

The Raption 100 can be used as a master in multipoint installations, combining DC and AC charging, a solution that, in addition to minimising the initial investment and maintenance costs when several chargers are needed, can yield considerable energy savings, since the master unit distributes the available power by taking into account the number of charging points in use.

All of this makes the Raption 100 the perfect charger to install on public roads, restaurants, petrol stations, shopping centres, airports and interurban areas. These are settings where drivers appreciate the ability to do quick charges lasting no more than 20 minutes, which, given the characteristics of new EVs, can provide a range of more than 200 km.

Discover the benefits of installing the new Line-TCPRS1 wireless converter with Wi-Fi and Ethernet

We are in a time when the world is more digitised than ever, and the electricity sector is not immune from this development since the vast majority of electrical installations use measurement devices with communications capabilities. The goal is to be able to send all the information to management software in order to process the data received so as to closely track everything that takes place in each of the installations. As well as to apply the appropriate improvements, especially in the area of energy efficiency.
The market trend is to use increasingly more wireless devices, and thus to avoid having to wire communications, making the installation much faster and more convenient. At CIRCUTOR, we are experts in this type of installation with communications, which is why we are introducing the new line-TCPRS1 communications gateway to the market, which allows converting RS-232 or RS-485 (ModbusRTU) to Wi-Fi and/or Ethernet (ModbusTCP).

Line-TCPRS1: wireless converter with Wi-Fi and Ethernet

Communication via Ethernet

This device features the communications of the line measurement system, i.e. the lateral bus through which all the information is sent without the need for wiring, and it also has the external terminal to be able to connect all the other communications devices in the installation at the same time.

 Communication via Ethernet 

Modbus RTU conversion to Modbus TCP via Ethernet

 

Communication via Wi-Fi

If, on top of this, you consider that the device offers Wi-Fi for sending the information to the management software, it makes it the perfect solution for those installations where routing communication wires is complicated.

 Communication via Wi-Fi 

Modbus RTU conversion to Modbus TCP via Wi-Fi

 

DHCP enabled by default

Another feature that makes it a very convenient device for users is that it is set up by default with DHCP enabled, so when the Ethernet cable is connected to the router, it will automatically be assigned an IP address.

 DHCP enabled by default

MyConfig App

Continuing with the theme of making our customers' work easier, CIRCUTOR has developed a mobile app (MyConfig) that can be used to set up communications between the line-TCPRS1 and other devices. This app can be downloaded free of charge from the Play Store for Android devices.

 MyConfig App

Automatic configuration via Bluetooth with the MyConfig app

As if that weren't enough, the line-TCPRS1 has its own web page where you can set up all the device's parameters quickly and conveniently.
In order to make the line-TCPRS1 device usable in any type of installation, it has been designed to accept input power from 80-264 VAC, 100-300 VDC and 50-60 Hz. Finally, this gateway can communicate using the following protocols: Modbus TCP, TCP y UDP

Configure your communications in any situation

The flexibility of the CVM-E3-MINI-WiEth analyzer allows you to set up your communications quickly, safely and easily. You can do this in the following ways:

  • By Bluetooth using the MyConfig app.
    You don't need to carry a computer to the facility to set the IP address and leave the analyzer connected to the LAN.

  • By web page via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
    Connect to the analyzer through a web server and easily configure all its parameters from your own computer if you are connected to the same LAN. Use any browser to program its IP and other communication settings.

  • By using its display
    Programs the communications of the device directly through its display. Once configured you can check the IP and parameters set as well as the level of Wi-Fi coverage if you are connecting wirelessly.


Discover how it works


Remotely solves wiring errors

Solve any error in the programming or physical wiring of the analyzer through the PowerStudio software. Saves on indirect costs in commissioning and configuration.

Voltage & current phase connection error

Voltage & current phase connection error

The voltage wiring must correspond to the current wiring of the same phase. If this does not happen, it means that the installation has been performed incorrectly. This will cause values such as power, cos phi, PF or energies to be incorrect.

Error installing current sensors

Error installing current sensors

The installation of the current transformers must be correct, following the flow direction of the load. If a transformer is installed reversed, the current will be displayed as generated current instead of consumed or vice versa, having an error in the total energy register.

“Solve any problem remotely from the PowerStudio software, avoiding trips to the installation and the associated cost.”
