By Alyssa Dalton
October 23, 2014 – GE has announced the Multilin 869 motor protection system designed for the protection, control and management of medium and large induction and synchronous motors.
According to the company, the Multilin 869 delivers high-speed protection and control features and easy-to-use tools for faster motor configuration and startup. Motor functioning reports are generated to help facilitate quick and easy identification of potential motor issues and any needed corrective action to help operators minimize motor failures and limit unplanned downtime, adds GE, adding that should a failure occur, the system will provide a failure-mode analysis through broken rotor bar detection and stator turn-turn fault to help operators identify a repair plan.
