Low Impedance Bus Protection System
The Multilin B90 bus protection relay, a member of the UR Family, features integrated protection and breaker failure for re-configurable MV, HV, EHV multi-section busbars with up to 24 feeders. Use one or more B90 relays together to build a flexible protection system that can be engineered to meet specific application requirements. The B90 performs fast and secure low-impedance bus protection with a sub-cycle tripping time of 0.75 cycles and 06 differential zones per phase.

Protection and Control Functionality
Protection & Control
The B90 bus differential relay provides fast and secure low-impedance bus protection for reconfigurable LV, HV, and EHV busbars. Use one B90 to protect up to 8 feeders and use three or more B90s together in a centralized phase-segregated architecture to protect up to 24 feeders. Many busbar applications such as single, double, triple, breaker-and-a-half, with or without transfer bus, can be protected using the B90. The B90 relay is ideally suited in applications where high-impedance schemes were typically used. Part of the Universal Relay family, the B90 comes with a variety of versatile features, truly integrating protection, monitoring, metering, communication and control in one easy-to-use device. The Universal Relay family offers a high degree of modularity in its design and functionality, providing superior performance in protection and control, while meeting the toughest requirements of the marketplace.

ANSI Device Numbers & Functions
Monitoring & Diagnostic
The B90 incorporates advanced automation features including powerful FlexLogic programmable logic, communication, and SCADA capabilities that far surpass what is found in the average bus protection relay. The B90 integrates seamlessly with other UR relays for complete system protection.
The B90 bus protection relay provides for secure remote data and engineering access, making it easy and flexible to use and integrate into new and existing infrastructures. Fiber optic Ethernet provides high-bandwidth communications allowing for low-latency controls and high-speed file transfers of relay fault and event record information. The available three independent and redundant Ethernet options provide the means to create fault tolerant communication architectures in an easy, cost-effective manner.
The B90 relay supports the most popular industry standard protocols enabling easy, direct integration into DCS and SCADA systems.
Cyber Security - CyberSentry™ UR (FW v7.4xx)
CyberSentry enables UR devices to deliver full cyber security features that help customers to comply with NERC CIP and NITIR 7628 cyber security requirements through supporting the following core features:
Secure FW upgrade
UR FW files v7.9 and up now include a hash code that allows for authentication prior to being used for upgrading UR devices.
Supporting up to 20 alpha- numeric or special characters, UR passwords exceed NERC CIP requirements for password complexity. Individual passwords per role are available.
AAA Server Support (Radius)
Enables integration with centrally managed authentication and accounting of all user activities and uses modern industry best practices and standards that meet and exceed NERC CIP requirements for authentication and password management.
Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
Efficiently administrate users and roles within UR devices. The new and advanced access functions allow users to configure up to five roles for up to eight configurable users with independent passwords. The standard “Remote Authentication Dial In User Service” (Radius) is used for authentication.
Event Recorder (Syslog for SEM)
Capture all cyber security related events within a SOE element (login, logout, invalid password attempts, remote/local access, user in session, settings change, FW update, etc), and then serve and classify data by security level using standard Syslog data format. This enables UR devices integration with established SEM (Security Event Management) systems.
The EnerVista™ suite is an industry-leading set of software programs that simplifies every aspect of using the B90 relay. The EnerVista™ suite provides all the tools to monitor the status of the protected asset, maintain the relay, and integrate information measured by the B90 into DCS or SCADA monitoring systems. Convenient COMTRADE and Sequence of Events viewers are an integral part of the UR setup software included with every UR relay, to carry out postmortem event analysis and ensure proper protection system operation.Learn More
