Monitoring Relays for insulation monitoring
Insulation monitoring relays are employed for monitoring the insulation resistance between ungrounded single- or three-phase networks and a protective conductor. Ungrounded, i.e. insulated networks (IT networks), are used whenever a high reliability of the power supply has to be ensured, e.g. with emergency lighting systems. Operation can be continued without risks after a first insulation fault (single fault security).
Nevertheless, the fault has to be rectified as soon as possible before a second insulation fault occurs (e.g. in accordance with DIN VDE 0100-410). For this purpose, insulation monitoring relays are employed for permanently measuring the resistance of the line conductors and the neutral conductor against ground and prompt fault signaling upon shortfall of the set insulation resistance.
