Fault Passage Indicator (FPI)

The Stelmec’s SFPI31 (Indicator) & DCU F1 (Data Concentrator Unit), Remote overhead fault indicator (RFI) monitors the overhead electricity lines in LV, MV power distribution networks. High accuracy current sensors in the SFPI 31, monitors the phase current & upon detecting current level exceeding the user-selected threshold (as a result of a P-P or P-E fault) sends the fault message to the DCU. The DCU transmits the data to the central monitoring station over the cellular network. Combined with GIS and SCADA, the central monitoring station could precisely locate the faulty section.
