AQ200 Series – AQ-G215 Generator Protection Relay

The AQ G215 generator protection relay is well suited for machines requiring complete generator protections. The AQ G215 is a cost effective synchronous protection relay.

It can be combined with AQ T216 to protect larger machines requiring differential protection and greater protection redundancy. The AQ G215 communicates using various protocols including IEC 61850 substation communication standard.
