Area Protection Panels (APP), or (Zone Protection Panels), are designed to monitor multiple points in an electrical system for proper normal source voltages.
Every APP comes with an output contact which changes state in the event of one, or more, areas being out of their correct voltage ranges. When a failure of any single area occurs, the APP’s output contact will change state to give the appropriate equipment a signal to activate. As normal power returns, the APP’s output contact changes back to its normal state to signal the appropriate equipment to deactivate.
