SIA-C is an Overcurrent and Earth Fault Protection Relays with Self Powered or Dual Powered (self + auxiliary) options.
The relay is self-powered using the operating current through three /5 (<5VA) or /1 (<2.5VA) standard current transformers fitted on the lines. These transformers are also used to obtain current measurements. Besides, the SIA-C relay can be used with an auxiliary power supply (24 Vdc, 230 Vac, 48 Vdc, or 100-230 Vdc/ac). The relay can also be occasionally supplied by an external battery portable kit (KITCOM).
Front port connection (ModBus RTU protocol) for local communication. Remote communication through rear RS485 (ModBus RTU or IEC 60870-5-103 selectable by general setting).
The operating costs of the centre are really reduced because the installation and subsequent maintenance of batteries are eliminated.
In self-powered mode, the start-up of the relay from low energy levels, 0.1 times the nominal current in three phases, ensures the capacity to trip.
Non-volatile RAM memory in order to store up to 1024 events and 20 fault reports and, depending on model, disturbance fault recording (10 oscillographic records in COMTRADE format), maintaining date & time, thanks to its internal RTC (Real time clock) even without power supply.
SIA-C enjoys top recognition among users all around the world. This relay is extremely experienced in successfully operating devices in the field worldwide.
Considering these advantages, SIA-C can be used in multiple applications, and different mechanics have been developed to cover all clients’ requirements. SIA-C is the best choice for our customers, covering all the needs of the market.

Communication Software for SIA & SIL protection relays
The SICom PC software has been designed and programmed to gain access to all of Fanox relays information, to modify the settings and configuration, check states and measurements and to analyse and save events and fault reports using a graphic-friendly user interface.
SICom software works with the Windows® Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 operating system.
- General data reading: Complete model, Version, Serial number, etc.
- States reading
- Measurements reading
- Reading and changing settings
- Reading and changing configuration
- Reading and deleting events
- Reading and deleting fault reports
- Reading and deleting demand current (load data profiling)
- Reading and saving oscillographic records in Comtrade format
- Changing the user passwords
- Saving and Loading settings files
- Saving and Loading configuration files
- Saving events and fault reports
- Saving demand current (load data profiling)
- Date-time synchronization
- Configuring the communication parameters
- Reading and changing counters
- Commands for opening and closing the circuit breaker and block/unblock the recloser
- Configuration of the inputs
- Configuration of the outputs
- Configuration of the causes that start a Fault Report
The update of the software does not require any user´s action, this is, if the computer is connected to Internet, SICom updates itself when it is started.
It will allow you to prepare all the settings and relay configurations without having the relay connected to the PC (offline mode), reducing engineering and commissioning time.
SICom program uses Modbus protocol, so only the ports with this protocol can be used to establish the communication.

Save Money using ONE Self-powered Relay for TWO Applications
A relay with different settings for normal operation and maintenance tasks is a requirement that is gaining more and more importance not only to speed up the process, but also to comply with newer an severer safety procedures.
So far, 2 relays, one for each application, are installed, but this solution is not practical considering the compact sizes of the RMUs and the importance of finding economic solutions for this purpose.
Fanox SIA-C with Standard CT’s Relay is provided with 4 separated settings groups that will allow the user to set different settings depending on the application. The Relay is provided with configurable inputs that are activated without external supply. By activating the corresponding inputs the relay will change automatically to the desired group . In addition, if configurable LEDs are used to indicate the settings group that the relay is working with.
SIA-C Relay becomes the most reliable solution to save money, to facilitate the settings process and to offer the best protection even when auxiliary supply is not available.
