New Plug-and-Play Replacements for GE PVD and ABB CO Electromechanical Relays

8/30/2017

Basler Electric is pleased to announce a new BE1-87B retrofit and a BE1-50/51B retrofit to its line of protective relays.

The new BE1-87B High Impedance Bus Differential Relay, part number 9282300111, functions as a retrofit for GEPVD21B or PVD21D differential voltage relays. The new BE1-87B model is provided in a drawout cradle assembly that installs, without modification, in an existing M1 GE PVD case. Minor wiring changes are required to provide station battery connection to provide relay operating power. A Basler application note presents the process of replacing an aging electromechanical relay with a BE1-87B retrofit.

The new BE1-50/51B Overcurrent Relay, part number 9252000258, functions as a retrofit for ABB (Westinghouse) CO relays. It has a selectable 0.0 or 0.05 second, fixed, instantaneous delay. The new BE1-50/51B model is provided in a basic FT-11 assembly that installs, without modification, in an existing FT-11 case. No wiring changes are required.
