BENDER is one of the world's leading partners for electrical safety. The new LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO combine the best high-resolution measurement technology with open communication in a minimum of space. They offer new functionalities and are suitable for industrial applications, building automation and data centres, among others.

Smart.

Intelligent measurement technology in a minimum of space

The new LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO feature the open interface RS-485 with Modbus RTU protocol and ensure fine-grained measurements up to 100 kHz. At the same time, they save space in the control cabinet and are easy to install.

Flexible.

Tailor-made solutions for all requirements

The modular LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO consist of a current transformer module with electronic modules which can be plugged on as needed. The single-channel, AC/DC sensitive compact LINETRAXX® devices are particularly suitable for use in final circuits.

Future-proof.

High availability and update capability

Whether current DGUV regulation 3 requirements (German Social Accident Insurance regulation 3) or upcoming standards - thanks to the open interface and pluggable electronic modules, LINETRAXX® devices with SensorPRO are already prepared for predictive maintenance and future industry 4.0 requirements.

Against the background of key topics such as Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT), Bender is increasingly confronted with the requirements of modern applications. As a result, highly flexible solutions that cover a wide performance range are now usually required. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand in the markets for smart sensors that can be easily and quickly integrated into existing installations and systems.

An essential requirement for the products is therefore the ability to communicate – if possible via universal interfaces and protocols. To generate added value such as preventive maintenance and high availability from measurement data, the sensors must be able to transfer all values and states to higher-level monitoring solutions in which they are evaluated and interpreted/further processed. Additionally, data granularity is also gaining in importance, so that a large number of sensors that are as small and simple as possible are being frequently used in modern plants.

LINETRAXX® RCMB300 series


RCMB300

The residual current monitoring modules of the RCMB300 series are intended for measuring AC and DC fault currents in earthed systems (TN and TT systems). The modules are able to measure residual currents up to IΔ = 20 A in a frequency range of DC…100 kHz.

Two separately adjustable response values allow a distinction to be made between prewarning and alarm. When the response value IΔn2 (alarm) is reached, the output relays K1 and K2 switch.

The modules feature an RS-485 interface with Modbus RTU which can be used to transfer measured values and alarm values. Setting parameters is also possible via this interface.

The residual current monitoring modules each consist of the RCMB301 evaluation electronics and a CTBC20(P)…210(P) series measuring current transformer core. To assemble a complete module, both the electronics and a measuring current transformer core are required; if ordered separately, these two components must then be plugged together and calibrated during commissioning.

The measuring current transformer cores of the CTBC20P…210P series feature an integrated magnetic shield and are suitable for applications with high load currents or inrush currents.

LINETRAXX® MRCDB300 series


[Translate to english:] MRCDB

The AC/DC sensitive MRCDB300 device series is used as additional protection (protection against indirect contact) in earthed systems (TN and TT systems) in which AC or DC fault currents may occur.

Part of these systems are particularly loads containing six-pulse rectifiers or one-way rectifiers with smoothing, such as converters, battery chargers, construction site equipment with frequency-controlled drives. When the response value IΔn2 (alarm) is reached, the output relays K1 and K2 switch.

By using an MRCDB300 module and a switching element with isolating properties, the device combination fulfils the requirements of IEC 60947-2 Annex M for an MRCD protective device.

The application is specifically intended for protection goals such as protection of persons, fire protection and plant protection. The switching element must not exceed a switch-off time of 20 ms.

The residual current monitoring modules each consist of the MRCDB300 evaluation electronics and a CTBC20(P)…210(P) series measuring current transformer core. To assemble a complete module, both the electronics and a measuring current transformer core are required; if ordered separately, these two components must then be plugged together and calibrated during commissioning.

The CTBC20P…210P series measuring current transformers feature an integrated magnetic shield and are suitable for applications with high load currents or inrush currents.

LINETRAXX® CTUB100 series


CTUB

The CTUB100 series measuring current transformers are combinations of CTBC… measuring current transformer cores and CTUB10… electronic modules, which convert AC and DC currents into an evaluable measurement signal. The measurement signals can be evaluated using devices of the RCMA420/423 or RCMS460/490 series. The measuring current transformers are connected to the respective devices via a 2- or 6-core cable. They can be used in DC, AC, and 3(N)AC systems.

The CTUB101-CTBCxx measuring current transformers are intended for connection to devices of the RCMA420/423 series and are supplied directly from the evaluator with the supply voltage DC ±12 V via the 6-core cable.

The CTUB102-CTBCxx measuring current transformers are intended for connection to RCMS460/490. If the CTUB102-CTBCxx measuring current transformers are connected to an RCMS460/490 system, a DC 24 V power supply unit is required for the measuring current transformers, which is available as an accessory.

The measuring current transformer cores of the CTBC20P…210P series feature an integrated magnetic shield and are suitable for applications with high load currents or inrush currents.
