States of remote inputs
States of relay outputs
States of logic elements
The 345 provides settable trip coil circuit monitoring feature per transformer breaker, that can produce alarm and trigger auxiliary output relay upon detection of trip coil circuit discontinuity.
Sixteen logic elements available for simple logic for applications such as manual control, interlocking, and peer to peer tripping.
4X20 character LCD display
Control panel with 12 LED indicators
Front USB and rear serial, Ethernet and Fiber ports
Easy integration into new or existing infrastructure. With several ethernet and serial port options, and a variety of protocols, the 345 provides advanced and flexible communication selections for new and existing energy management, SCADA, and DCS systems.
The 345 incorporates the latest communication technologies making it the easiest and the most flexible feeder protection relay for use and integration into new and existing infrastructures. The 345 relay provides the user with one front USB and one rear RS485 communication port. It also offers the option of an additional rear communication port with Ethernet Fiber and Copper. Through the use of these ports, continuous monitoring and control from a remote computer, SCADA system or PLC is possible. With our advanced draw-out construction, the 345 relay can be drawn-out without having to disconnect any communication cables.
The 350 supports popular industry standard protocols enabling easy, direct integration into electrical SCADA and HMI systems. The protocols supported by the 345 include:
These protocols make it easy to connect to a Utility or Industrial automation system,
eliminating the need for external protocol converter devices.
The EnerVista™ suite is an industry leading set of software programs that simplifies every aspect of using the 345 relay. The EnerVista™ suite provides all the tools to monitor the status of the protected asset, maintain the relay, and integrate the information measured into DCS or SCADA monitoring systems. Convenient COMTRADE and sequence of event viewers are an integral part of the 345 setup software and are included to ensure proper protection and system operation. Learn More
Multilin devices and relays are designed with simple but powerful security to enable reliability and compliance for virtually any project or implementation. With support for multi-level permissions and multi-factor supervisory controls, Multilin devices can help you manage the integrity of your system during commissioning, testing, implementation, and beyond.
The UR Family provides separate authentication for settings and commands to the system. In addition, as discrete authentications for local and remote access, it also provides a supervisory control factor that can lock or unlock a device for configuration changes and other modifications.
Multilin’s family of protection and control products can also help enable your security perimeter and intrusion detection programs. By providing essential alarming and logging of critical events, Multilin devices can help you detect potential breaches within your system and allow you to respond quickly and effectively. Specifically, unsuccessful access attempts are logged, alarmed, and lead to potential attackers being locked out. This ensures the reliability of your system during questionable activity
control factor that can lock or unlock a device for configuration changes and other modifications.
Auditing and Reporting
With the Security Audit Trail reporting feature and support for Event logging of key activities such
as configuration changes, Multilin devices can help ensure device and protection system integrity,
and perform forensic auditing of activities and changes for compliance.
