GE launches advanced motor protection system

 GE has recently launched MultilinTM 869 Motor Protection System designed for the protection, control and management of medium and large induction and synchronous motors.
The Multilin 869 joins the Multilin 850 feeder protection system to create a common product platform that will enable industrial and distribution utilities to enhance the reliability of multiple different assets in their electrical infrastructure and reduce costs associated with unplanned outages. As part of the Multilin 8 Series platform family, originally announced in September 2013, the Multilin 869 delivers high-speed protection and control features and easy-to-use tools for faster motor configuration and startup helping operators get the Multilin 869 configured quickly. The system also generates motor functioning reports which facilitate quick and easy identification of potential motor issues and any needed corrective action to help operators minimise motor failures and limit unplanned downtime. Should a failure occur, the Multilin 869 also provides enhanced motor failure-mode analysis through broken rotor bar detection and stator turn-turn fault enabling operators to quickly identify a repair plan.  
The 8 Series platform delivers: Detailed asset diagnostics so operators can make informed, proactive decisions to reduce unplanned outages and accurately plan maintenance schedules. Using GE’s environmental awareness module to actively monitor both the environment and its own internal components, the 8 Series generates data that operators can use to make decisions about when maintenance or downtime should be scheduled, increasing operational uptime. The standard harsh conformal coating on the 8 Series’ printed circuit boards helps protect against environmental factors to help deliver higher reliability and extend product life.  An integrated integrity engine that utilises customised algorithms which provide advanced diagnostics to ensure asset protection is not compromised. Coupled with the latest cyber security features, customers can comply with the latest NERC/CIP and NISTIR 7628 cyber security requirements.  Advanced communications to allow easy integration into process and electrical control systems for smoother asset monitoring and control.
