Product information "IKI-20B3"
The IKI-20 is suitable for the detection, indication and remote signalling of short circuits in power distribution networks. In addition, in power distribution networks with rigidly, low-resistance or short-time low-resistance grounded neutral point, the detection, indication and remote signalling of ground short-circuits is possible. Non-directional earth faults can be indicated in cleared or isolated networks.

The IKI-20 is maintenance-free because the power supply is provided by the current transformers.

Measurement functions and display

  • Reliable measured value processing through independent overcurrent-time characteristic (UMZ measurement function)
  • True current measurement

  • additional very bright LED flashing display

Universal setting option of operating parameters

  • response current and response time separately for short circuit and earth short circuit
  • reset mode resp. reset time
  • Relay functions duration or wiping contact

Self test

  • Function test on site by means of test button or remotely controllable via auxiliary input

Operation in ring and beam network (without switching)

  • Differentiated display of first and second fault event in networks with AWE

BatteryLithium battery: 3,6 V; LS14500; Kries-item.no.: 3500934
Battery lifeGreater than 17 years with current sensors not connected; for operation with current sensors and operating currents greater than 5A: at least 30 years
Notes on transformer supplyWith a primary current of >=5A through a split-core CT at the inputs L1, L2 or L3, the energy supply is made from the sensors. At primary currents <4A, power is supplied from the energy buffer. With primary currents 1A <I <5A, a mixed supply takes place.
