AQ 100 series The efficient arc protection system

AQ 100 series offers a complete solution to arc The AQ 100 series is designed and tested according
flash protection. The AQ 100 is designed utilizing to the latest protection relay standards and is hence
suitable for installations in any environment, such as
the most modern technology with a focus on utility, power plant, wind-power, off shore, marine,
simplicity while maintaining both flexibility and oil and gas, mining, steel or any other heavy industry
function. It is built to meet the growing demands application and as well commercial and institutional
electrical systems. The AQ 100 modular design makes
in both LV and MV switchgear and controlgear
it an excellent candidate for both new and retrofit
applications ranging from basic stand-alone to installations.
more complex system solutions.

AQ 100 Benefits
Speed Simplicity
As fast as 2ms trip time AQ 100 Standard Arc Scheme (AQ-SAS)
Connectivity to arc quenching system type approach for fast engineering and simple setting
AQ 2000 for rapid arc extinguishing Auto-configuration feature with one
push-button operation
Flexibility Installation downtime often limited to hours
Easy adaptation to any switchgear
and trip scheme Cost effectiveness
Variety of arc sensors available Careful component selection optimizes
Long distance possible between units the AQ 100 cost structure
Practically an unlimited number of units Use of standard cables for interconnection
can be interconnected in one system and sensor wiring
Quick install of sensors and wires
Reliability Cables can be cut to length on site
Standard hard-wiring practice for communication
between units
Superior isolation level for external disturbances -
tested at the highest EMC classes
Selectable binary input threshold voltages
AQ 100 Standard
Full self-supervision of all system components Arc Schemes
and interconnections (AQ-SAS)
Reduction in engineering cost
Quick and simple commissioning
Less after sales costs

AQ-SAS is a fully tested and


documented standard arc protection
solution library. Application descriptions,
connection drawings and dipswitch
settings are detailed in product literature
reducing the required engineering effort
and after sales cost significantly.
