 Press Releases

  • Basler Electric is pleased to announce a new BE1-87B retrofit and a BE1-50/51B retrofit to its line of protective relays.

    The new BE1-87B High Impedance Bus Differential Relay, part number 9282300111, functions as a retrofit for GEPVD21B or PVD21D differential voltage relays. The new BE1-87B model comes in a drawout cradle assembly that installs, without modification, in an existing M1 GE PVD case. Minor wiring changes are required to provide station battery connection to provide relay operating power.

    The new BE1-50/51B Overcurrent Relay, part number 9252000258, functions as a retrofit for ABB (Westinghouse) CO relays. It has a selectable 0.0 or 0.05 second, fixed, instantaneous delay. The new BE1-50/51B model is provided in a basic FT-11 assembly that installs, without modification, in an existing FT-11 case. No wiring changes are required.

    For more information, visit the BE1-87B and BE1-50/51B product pages at An application note presents the process of replacing an aging electromechanical relay with a BE1-87B retrofit.
  • Generator system availability is important. When a machine can't start automatically as expected, backup provisions are needed. Based on customer feedback, Basler Electric upgraded and improved its IDP-801 Interactive Display Panel

    1. The IDP-801 provides a START/STOP command to the excitation control system to start or stop excitation, thus eliminating the need to connect to the controller via a computer to initiate a start or a stop command to the excitation system.
    2. The IDP-801 has an available Spanish language setting. This flexible user interface is as simple as pressing a button to change the language from English to Spanish.
    The START/STOP command and Spanish language setting are standard on every IDP-801 at no additional charge. To upgrade an IDP-801 that's already in service, contact Basler Electric’s Technical Sales Support team to obtain an updated configuration file.
    When the IDP-801’s new START/STOP command is selected, the user’s backup procedures coordinate the process with other system control aspects. The START/STOP command feature is also available in Basler’s IDP-1201 and IDP-1500.

    The IDP-801 Interactive Display Panel is a high-resolution 190.5 mm (7.5 inch) color touch screen interface that permits operators to:
    • monitor Basler Electric’s Digital Excitation Control Systems.
    • perform control operations.
    • make routine adjustments to various set points.
    This next generation HMI can be placed locally (on the excitation system cubicle door) or remotely (in a control room). The IDP-801 is compatible with Basler Electric’s DECS-250, DECS-250N, DECS-250E and DECS-400 excitation systems.
