HSA Multicontact Auxiliary

Application
The HSA high-speed multicontact, auxiliary relays are applicable where it is desired that a number of operations be performed simultaneously from the operation of a single relay. Typical functions that can be performed by these relays are:
1. Trip and lock out the main circuit breaker of a system. 2. Trip station auxiliary breakers. 3. Trip main or auxiliary field breakers. 4. Trip and lock out all breakers on a bus.

Perhaps the most important use of the HSA relay is as an auxiliary used in conjunction with differential relays for bus, transformer, line or rotating machine protection.

latch which is especially constructed to resist shock and vibration. The latch is released through the action of a plunger device actuated by the relay operating coil. All HSA relays are made so that they should not normally be tripped manually; however, manual tripping can be accomplished through use of an escutcheon knockout (and predrilled hole in panel) which provides access to a screwdriveroperated tripping device. The time required to trip the relay, from the instant of energization of the coil to the closing of the contacts, is per HSA Relay Operating Characteristics (Figures 3 & 4), slightly less for opening of contacts.

Seismic Capability
The seismic capability of HSA N.O. (Normally Open) and N.C. (Normally Closed) contacts are given in Table 2.

Service Temperature The HSA will operate over an ambient temperature range of 20C to +55C and will not be damaged by storage ambients of -40C to +65C.

Target Dropping
Universal targets in series with HSA trip coils increase HSA trip time. A typical increase in trip time for a single 0.2 A target and an HSA with a 125 VDC trip coil is 1.3 ms. Table 1 shows the maximum number and type of universal targets that can be dropped by the current pulse of HSA trip coils.
Table 1. Target dropping

Construction
The HSA multi-contact, auxiliary relays are built with many parts common to the SBM control switches. The mechanical target on the escutcheon plate assembly indicates the position of the relay. The black target indicates the reset position and the orange target, the tripped position. To reset the relay after it has been tripped, the handle is turned clockwise as indicated by the arrow on the escutcheon plate. Since the HSA relay is similar to the SBM switch, it is available with a shaft long enough to allow it to be mounted on panels with thickness up to 1/4 inch.

Dielectric Capability
HSA relays are rated 60 0 V in accordance with the Dielectric Test Section of Relay Standard ANSI/IEEE C37.90-1978.

Operation
The HSA relay is available with 9, 13 or 19 main electrically separate contacts. In addition, there are 2 normally closed contacts that are wired for opening the operating coil circuit. See Figure 2. The operating shaft is held in reset position by a positive roller

NOTE: A minimum of two parallel 0.2 A targets is recommended to assure tripping of 48 VDC HSA relays.

Trip Coil Ratings


The three trip coils available for HSA relays have multiple voltage ratings as shown in Table 3. To obtain maximum tripping speed, the coils are rated for intermittent duty only.

The current-closing ratings of the contacts is 30 A for voltages not exceeding 60 0 V. The contacts have a current carrying capacity of 20 A continuously. The interrupting ability of the contacts varies with the inductance of the circuit. The values (in amperes) given in Table 4 for DC inductive circuits are based on the average trip coil.
Table 4. Contact interrupting ratings

CAUTION: Do not hold the reset handle in the reset position if the HSA will not reset. Failure to reset indicates that the trip coil is energized. Holding the reset handle in the reset position with the trip coil energized at rated voltage will cause rapid coil heating and possible insulation damage.
