With the Edison Idea relay platform, Cooper integrates control and protection making it the ideal choice for advanced protection applications. In addition to offering a full suite of protective elements in each relay, the Idea relay incorporates extensive front panel targeting to allow for fast and efficient visual determination of the relay’s status, fault type, control modes, and more.

The Idea relay also features eight front panel hot keys which permit the user to immediately access selected display screens, view metering, access settings, implement control functions, or even to perform local operations. Although the function of each hot key is predefined for each Edison Idea relay, these definitions may be changed by the user to meet application specific requirements.

Additionally, some Idea relays are available both in the Idea and IdeaPLUS relay platforms. The IdeaPLUS platform is the same as the Idea platform with the addition of a breaker control panel and nine additional programmable feature pushbuttons with integral indicating LEDs.
