- Modbus TCP/RTU communication module
- Integration of Red/Line and Yellow/Line SPDs into a monitoring system
- Monitoring of up to 4 surge arresters with remote signalling contacts and up to 150 BLITZDUCTOR XT arresters (RS 485)
- Integration of the remote signalling contacts of further user-defined functional modules in the monitoring system
DEHNrecord Alert is a communication module which inegrates Red/Line® and Yellow/Line SPDs into a monitoring system. The systems can communicate via serial (Modbus RTU) as well as Ethernet based (Modbus TCP) interface. In case of the Red/Line® SPDs the integrated floating remote signalling contacts are recorded. BLITZDUCTOR XT arrester modules are monitored via the DRC MCM AL XT, which transmits the collected information to the DRC AL via an RS 485 interface. In addition to the status of the SPDs also the part number of the complete device and the part numbers of the replacement modules of the Red/Line and Yellow/Line devices are relayed. Sending the relevant data to the customer's monitoring system maintenance of the system can be planned directly on workplace. This facilitates the efficient and cost-effective co-ordination of service and maintenance work, because on evaluation of the status reports the products to be replaced are shown. DEHNrecord Alert autonomously detects all integrated BLITZDUCTOR XT modules and their information. Integration of SPDs with remote signalling contact requires a start-up app. Intuitive to operate, this app relays device information of the connected SPDs per wireless communication to the DEHNrecord Alert. Optionally also the remote signalling contacts of any other function modules can be integrated. In this case only the status of the respective remote signalling contacts is relayed. The module is mounted on DIN rail in the switching cabinet.
Versions with further bus protocols can be implemented upon request.
DEHNrecord DRC MCM AL XT
DRC MCM AL XT is a compact DIN rail mounted device for monitoring the status of up to 10 surge arresters of the BXT/BXTU series with integrated LifeCheck. In case of larger installations with more than 10 arresters, up to 15 DRC MCM AL XT can be interconnected by means of the integrated RS 485 interface. Thus, up to 150 protection modules can be monitored simultaneously and the device status can be transmitted to a recording system by a single DEHNrecord Alert.
DRC MCM AL XT is a special version of DRC MCM XT. In addition to the bus address of the BLITZDUCTOR XT the DRC MCM AL XT additionally can read and transmit its article number. Reading of the article number is only possible in connection with the DEHNrecord Alert. The protection modules are directly addressed with the monitoring module or the PC via the "Status Display and Service Console“ software. Already installed DRC MCM XT can be adapted for the use of DEHNrecord Alert anytime by a software update.
