The B90, a member of the UR Family, features integrated protection and breaker failure for re-configurable MV, HV, EHV multi-section busbars with up to 24 feeders. Use one or more B90s together to build a flexible protection system that can be engineered to meet specific application requirements. The B90 performs fast and secure low-impedance bus protection with a sub-cycle tripping time of 0.75 cycles and 04 differential zones per phase.

The B90 bus differential system provides fast and secure low-impedance bus protection for reconfigurable LV, HV, and EHV busbars. Use one B90 to protect up to 8 feeders and use three or more B90s together in a centralized phase-segregated architecture to protect up to 24 feeders. Many busbar applications such as single, double, triple, breaker-and-a-half, with or without transfer bus, can be protected using the B90. The B90 is ideally suited in applications where high-impedance schemes were typically used. Part of the Universal Relay family, the B90 comes with a variety of versatile features, truly integrating protection, monitoring, metering, communication and control in one easy-to-use device. The Universal Relay family offers a high degree of modularity in its design and functionality, providing superior performance in protection and control, while meeting the toughest requirements of the marketplace.
Isolator monitoring (up to 48) and alarming
CT trouble monitoring
Metering - current, voltage, frequency
Oscillography - 64 samples/cycle, up to 64 records
Event Recorder - 1024 time tagged events, with 0.5 ms scan of digital inputs
The B90 is the single point for protection, control, metering, and monitoring in one integrated device that can easily be connected directly into DCS or SCADA monitoring and control systems like Viewpoint Monitoring as shown.
The B90 incorporates advanced automation features including powerful FlexLogic™ programmable logic, communication, and SCADA capabilities that far surpass what is found in the average bus protection relay. The B90 integrates seamlessly with other UR relays for complete system protection.
FlexLogic allows for the customization of the B90 outputs for most bus protection schemes and applications.

CyberSentry enables UR devices to
deliver full cyber security features that help customers to comply with NERC CIP and NITIR 7628 cyber security requirements through supporting the following core features:
Supporting up to 20 alpha- numeric or special characters, UR passwords exceed NERC CIP requirements for password complexity. Individual passwords per role are available.
AAA Server Support (Radius)
Enables integration with centrally managed
authentication and accounting of all user
activities and uses modern industry best practices and standards that meet and exceed NERC CIP requirements for authentication and password management.
Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
Efficiently administrate users and roles within UR devices. The new and advanced access functions allow users to configure up to five roles for up to eight configurable users with independent passwords. The standard “Remote Authentication Dial In User Service” (Radius) is used for authentication.
Event Recorder (Syslog for SEM)
Capture all cyber security related events
within a SOE element (login, logout, invalid
password attempts, remote/local access, user in session, settings change, FW update, etc), and then serve and classify data by security level using standard Syslog data format. This enables UR devices to integrate with established SEM (Security Event Management) systems.
The EnerVista™ suite is an industry-leading set of software programs that simplifies every aspect of using the B90 relay. The EnerVista™ suite provides all the tools to monitor the status of the protected asset, maintain the relay, and integrate information measured by the B90 into DCS or SCADA monitoring systems. Convenient COMTRADE and Sequence of Events viewers are an integral part of the UR setup software included with every UR relay, to carry out postmortem event analysis and ensure proper protection system operation.
