  3. URC Applications • The URC is suitable for new applications, or as a retrofit of existing recloser controls including: • For Kyle®/Cooper Form 3, 3A, 4, 4A, 4C, FXA, and FXB • Medium and low voltage systems • Coordination with substation feeders using traditional recloser curve coordinate or UCA GOOSE messaging A versatile and flexible solution for any application

  4. URC Applications The URC is suitable for controlling both pole mounted and substation (ground) reclosers, including multiple reclosers: Pole Mount Recloser Substation Recloser

  5. Convenient Mounting Hardware The URC comes with a rugged housing and mounting bracket: • Optional climate control • Choice of casing material: • Stainless steel • Aluminum • Sealed against the elements • Cabinet is NEMA 4 rated Environmentally hardened shells provide safety and security

  6. URC Front Panel Features Programmable LED indicators Large 2 line backlit LCD display & keypad Target Reset LED indicators User-programmable pushbuttons (Trip, Close, Block 79, Block Gnd OC, HLT, Local/Remote, etc.) Front RS232 PC interface Front mounted 120 Volt AC power supply Front-mounted test panels with covers (optional) RJ45 Ethernet Port for PC interface (optional)

  7. Benefits of the URC • Proven protection algorithms • Built-in communications and expandable I/O accessory boards • FlexLogic™ & FlexElements™ Programmable Control System • Integrated Ethernet (10BaseT, 10BaseF) as Option • Configurable Pushbuttons for Maximum Flexibility • Advanced Configuration and Commissioning Tools • Large Operator Display Integrated protection, control and communications in one product

  8. Key Features • Protection • Standard time curves including IEEE, IEC, GE IAC, I2t, definite time, plus 4 user programmable with selection of 41 Cooper Type Curves • Optional Hi-Z fault detection • Phase, neutral, ground or sensitive ground and negative sequence IOC/TOC • Breaker failure • Multiple setting groups • Control • Programmable four-shot autoreclosing with programmable sequence coordination • Programmable logic system (FlexLogic™) including gates, latches, timers, counters and digital elements • Metering • A, V, Watt, Var, PF, Demand metering • 12 User Programmable Pushbuttons • Trip, Close, HLT, Block 79, Block Gnd OC, Local/Remote,etc.

  9. URPC Software Features The software provides many useful tools, including: • Waveform capturing • triggered by current, voltage, switch activity or manually • 1 x 128 upto 31 x 8 cycles (configurable) • 64 Samples/Cycle Rate • Data Logger For Trending • Event Recorder • Triggered by any element pickup, operator reset, digital I/O or change of state • 1024 most recent events stored in non-volatile memory • Pickup and Dropout of 26 different conditions • Harmonic Analysis Up to the 25th Harmonic User-friendly software provides access to vital data

  10. Communications The URC’s open communications protocol and multiple ports facilitate system integration: • RS485 port supports ModBus RTU • MMS/UCA2, ModBus TCP/IP, and DNP 3.0 on 10BaseF options • Simultaneous communication to PLC/RTU and PC • Front RS232 and optional RJ45 Ethernet ports provide local PC connection for maintenance, reporting and monitoring by personnel Designed for seamless integration to minimize installation time and costs

  11. Wiring Connections: The URC offers many wiring options for versatility and flexibility:
