SIPROTEC 5 expansion modules can be added to most SIPROTEC 5 relays to provide more binary inputs, outputs, current and/or voltage inputs, mA inputs, arc flash inputs or more communication ports.
SIPROTEC 5 Push Button front panel option.
With each expansion module there is a choice of the front panel type provided:
- With 32 Red LEDs
- With 32 Red LEDs + 2 x key switch (Local-Remote, Interlocking OFF-Normal)
- With 8 x push buttons and LED’s
The option for 8 push buttons is a recent addition, making the SIPROTEC 5 series even more flexible and powerful. The 8 push button option is ideal for industrial applications, or where a very human-friendly (simple) local control function is required. Note that the push buttons mimic the F1-F8 function keys and must be used in that manner.
When selecting some of these expansion module front panel types, there are some rules about valid combinations and permitted relative positions. Not all expansion modules support the 8 push button options and only one push button and one key switch front panel can be used per relay. We can let you know these options if you’re interested.
