Current Limiting Feature


        • Built-in InteliProbe function

        • Remote settable functions:

o  Can be Enabled/Disabled

o  Current allowed 10A,20A ....100A set point

o  Automatic feed [house] disconnect when current set point is reached.

o  Disconnected time, 1 minute to 4 hours

o  Disconnect repeat if set point is reached, 1 to 254 times

o  Automatic connect if disconnected time has elapsed and disconnect repeats >1

        • Command can be sent for individual devices, groups [255] or all

        • Command on PLCC: 50 ms, GPRS : 800ms

        • Green LED on InteliProbe will indicate contactor state, On/Off.

        • Inteliprobe will acknowledge back to the central server the state of the contactor.

        • Disconnection queries can be handled remotely.

        • Contactor can be set remotely to On/Off.

        • Current set point can be changed in real time and according to demand requirements.
