Application
The KCM13x is a digitally controlled guard/controller for use in a large range of applications such as power guards, load controller, DC current guards, DC voltage guards, etc. As an analogue controller it can be used to monitor a large range of physical parameters as flow, pressure, temperature, length, weight and more.

 The standard models takes the auxiliary supply voltage from the monitored voltage (terminal 1 & 2).

It can also be delivered with optional separate DC auxiliary voltage (terminal 26 & 27), but that must be specified when ordering (see page 4 for ordering code for separate Aux. Supply).

User settable trip levels and delays. Colour of LEDs indicate alarm status. Alarm LEDs flash during count-down.

The DIN-rail mounted instrument reads the monitored parameter. The optional slave watt-meter and the triple-zone status LEDs at a glance gives the clear safety message, typically:
  • HIGH
  • LOW
  • NORMAL
Outputs
Up to two individual very fast analogue output signals (optional) proportional to monitored parameters. This may be used as an input to a control system, to detect abnormal power conditions (loss of excitation etc). If output is used for remote meter reading, we recommend 0-1mA for the slave indicator.

Relay Outputs
Relay operation depends on the selected model. Other combinations are available on request.

Description
 
Analogue Level Controllers / Guards

KCM13M13x
A Low / High Universal Level Controller
 It is operating from mA or volt output of any transmitter or converter for monitoring of most physical parameters like Flow, Volume, RPM, Vibration, Time, Pressure, Temperature, Level, Length, Weight, Angle, RH, Dewpoint, pH, Lux, UV exposure etc. Scaled to customer requirement. The unit has one low and one high alarm relay with adjustable hysteresis.

Relay trip lamps flash instantly (approx. 1 flash per second) when the trip level is passed, the relay trips after elapsed delay. The lamp changes state and the trip relay operates after the pre-set delay. If a trip condition ends during the delay interval, the timer will automatically reset (only on Non-Latching models).

Power Controllers / Guards
 
KCM13M151x
AC Power Controller
It is operating on a output from the MCE105 generator controller or from any low level DC signal i.e. 0-5V, 4-20mA etc. When used as a “Total power” instrument it monitors the combined output of a generator system. The relays can be used to automatically start and stop generators in a simple system or for preferential tripping. As a “Surplus power” instrument, it monitors the remaining available power and therefore the relays can be used for load blocking of heavy loads.

Relay trip lamps flash instantly (approx. 1 flash per second) when the trip level is passed, the relay trips after elapsed delay. The lamp changes state and the trip relay operates after the pre-set delay. If a trip condition ends during the delay interval, the timer will automatically reset (only on Non-Latching models).

KCM13M154x
AC Power Controller
It is operating on a output from balance lines from the MCE105 generator controller or from any low level DC voltage signal i.e. 0-5V, 0-8V etc. By monitoring the load balance lines of the MCE105, the instrument will indicate the total percentage of power from the generators in use regardless of the number of generators running. The trip relays can be used to automatically start and stop generators based purely on percentage of generated power. Scaled with 0-100%kW.

Relay trip lamps flash instantly (approx. 1 flash per second) when the trip level is passed, the relay trips after elapsed delay. The lamp changes state and the trip relay operates after the pre-set delay. If a trip condition ends during the delay interval, the timer will automatically reset (only on Non-Latching models).
