P161, P162 & P163 - Legacy

Manufacturing for this product has been discontinued. As an alternative, please refer to the 850 relay. 

MiCOM Agile P161, P162 & P163 relays are compact, multifunction and versatile solutions that provide feeder protection, control and monitoring in one box. The relay family is suitable as main or backup protection for a wide range of typical applications and covers all common power system earthing arrangements such as solid, resistive, or resonant earthing and isolated networks. 

The color touch-screen HMI with provision for bay mimic display and integrated control / interlocking functions maximizes the application range. The fully programmable nature of relays make them an extremely versatile and cost effective solution for all switchgear applications with varied protection requirements. Up to 5 switchgear elements may be switched by the bay control models. The single line diagram for the bay or a subset of the substation, along with relevant data, may be generated via the configuration tool, aided by integrated graphical icons. Remote controls are facilitated by the relay’s SCADA communication interfaces.

The relay family is comprised of the P161 non-directional feeder, P162 with directional earth-fault and P163 directionalized feeder management IEDs.

Key Benefits:

  • Bay visibility - large HMI with configurable views  including bay SLD
  • One box solution  - combines protection, control and measurements
  • Integration into existing substation automation – choice of communication protocols
  • High performance (1.5 ms) IEC 61850-8-1 GOOSE for demanding applications Low depth design for installation in switchgear LV compartment
