I have a shore power relay with an output contact maximum switching voltage of 250 V AC. This is a Schneider Electric RM22TA33.
The input to the relay is 3 phases @ 415 V (this is within spec).
The relay senses symmetry, and when conditions are met, it closes the N/O output contact to energise a 415 V coil (5 W steady power, 30 W inrush power).
My issue is that this relay is on a ship which has generators connected as a 3 phase, 4 wire system (eg there is a neutral). However the relay is only utilised to provide shore power to the ship.
The shore power is a 3 phase 3 wire system. There is no neutral.
In essence the schematic goes as such:
L3--------relay N/O contact-------contactor coil-----L1
Is there anyway to overcome this? It is obviously exceeding the spec of the contact rating. However, I don't have a neutral available to install an interposing relay...
Would a Delta-Wye transformer work? I also have a snapshot of the schematic here if that can be attached at all...excuse me as I am new here.
