IHM-6100-A FCI for Overhead Network
IHM-6100-A FCI (Fault Circuit Indicator) has been designed based on advanced technology for overhead cable to pinpoint fault location along the electric distribution power network (faults like two-phase or three-phase short-circuit fault and single-phase earth fault). IHM-6100-A is equipped with visual indication to support visual tracking and locate the fault at field.When the fault current of the feeder is detected, the high-brightness red LED light at the bottom of the FCI flashes, which can be observed in a range of 360°and at a long distance. The fault of the feeder can be quickly located by tracking the FCI LED alarm lamp at field.The FCI can distinguish transient fault from permanent fault.When the feeder is restored to normal power supply or after the delay time(the factory set up), the LED alarm lamp automatically resets.IHM-6100-A has a large capacity battery inside which can support the continuous working time of fault indicator over 8 years. At the same time, when the line load current is greater than 10A, FCI can take power from line for operation.Installation process of IHM-6100-A is very simple and can be installed on energized line anywhere.
