Re: 7C-2701 Series Boost module.... Does anyone have experience with these?

Would need some more info on what you're trying to do. What unit do you have, what kind of loads, so on.

 

In a lot of cases retrofitting to a Basler AVR with a Basler Series Boost is the best option, but not always.

 

The series boost modules are big and heavy because they have to provide enough energy at a fast rate to maintain excitation is a motor starting or fault condition.

Mike,

 

Do you have any more info on a suitable replacement for the 7C-201. It looks like the Basler replacement is the CBS-212A. However the weight/size  of the CTs required and size of the device doesnt seem practical. Any help would be geeatly appreciated. Thanks

does anyone know what voltage is produced by the series boost transformer I'd like to bench test a module. thanks

It was a VERY low volume product the last several years it was offered. Most specifiers opted for either a PM or auxiliary winding type excitation system if higher excitation currents were required for either motor starting or selective coordination.

 

Basler still offers a series boost module I have used with the VR6 regualtor, look at Basler's website and search series boost and/or the AVC63-12 (commercial version of a VR6).

Any Idea why? The documentation for the VR-6 regulator shows them as an option.

That part has been discontinued.  There are no service replacements available.

We have these installed on some of our generators. One of them failed and our dealer can't seem to decide if they are still in production or not!
Any info would be awesome, thanks
