• Ground-fault monitor for grounded and high-resistance grounded AC/DC systems
  • Modular installation using a single external current transformer
  • Works with AC/DC power conversion equipment including variable frequency drives
  • Digital display with real-time readings
  • Configurable Form-C (SPDT) relay contacts

The RCMA423 monitors for ground-fault current in solidly-grounded and high-resistance-grounded AC/DC (single-phase or three-phase) systems. The RCMA423 is also compatible with systems that contain power conversion equipment, such as variable frequency drives and inverters.

The pickup value is adjustable from 30 mA to 3 A (for a higher pickup value, refer to RCMA420 series). A separately configurable pre-warning alarm is also available. Three separately adjustable time delays are included - a pickup delay, startup delay, and delay on reset.

The RCMA423 provides an accurate, RMS value. Measurements are displayed in real-time via the device's on-board digital display. All device are configured using the display and push buttons. Two Form-C (SPDT) relay outputs are separately configurable to trigger on pre-warning or main alarms.

A single current transformer connects to the RCMA423 for measuring ground-fault current. A wide range of sizes are available.
