Control mode
Setting, display and operation of rectifier is realized locally or remotely.
Local control

  • Start, stop, current/voltage regulation, output current, voltage display, fault alarm etc. Equipped with analog or digital voltmeter and ampere meter.

  • Local operation: main circuit ON button, main circuit OFF button, local/remote control switch, constant current/voltage switch, emergency stop button.

  • Local alarm: water pressure, overload, thyristor overheat etc. with audible-visual alarm.

  • Local display: DC output voltmeter, ampere meter.

  • Local setting: reference value setting.

Remote control

  • Remote setting: current reference value signal (4-20mA or 0-10V signal)

  • Remote operation: output enabling signal.

  • Remote display: DC output voltmeter(4-20mA or 0-10V signal), DC output ampere meter.

Protection function

  • When the rectifier works under constant current, it has overvoltage protection also with protection value 110% of rated output DC voltage(adjustable).

  • When the rectifier works under constant voltage, it has overcurrent protection also with protection value 110% of rated output DC current(adjustable).

  • Cooling water pressure protection: when water inlet pressure is lower than setting value, the rectifier alarms.

  • Thyristor overheat protection: when thyristor is overheat, the rectifier alarms.

  • When overload(overvoltage, overcurrent), thyristor overheat and water inlet pressure protections happen, the rectifier will alarm and be stopped operation automatically.
