The type 76 DC overcurrent relay provides protection and monitoring in third rails, bolted faults and a solid-state design for rugged construction. The option here is low maintenance and it works in a series of adverse conditions for excellent results in your electrical maintenance. The overcurrent device  is a great improvement in the industry.

The Type 76 DC Overcurrent Relay is used in switching substations where the control of power circuits are required to protect against over-voltages, previously resulting in human fatalities. The use of an overcurrent relay reduces this risk by controlling the circuit breaker until there is no longer arcing or excessive  voltage. This is a major improvement on switches and saves on equipment control panels, which can be costly.

Features of this monitoring solution include LED screens for easy monitoring, draw out construction, calibration controls and use with any shunt in the configuration of this device. The device can be used with positive and negative constructors and  this makes it more reliable for results.

The Type 76 DC Overcurrent Relay is suitable for use on live parts and heavy equipment. This relay also works on any series configuration and the solid-state design reduces maintenance costs over time. The overcurrent device can be mounted at any angle due to its construction, making it easier to operate.
