  • The switchgear 2 has a housing 17 and a number of modules 7 on. The switchgear 2 supplied in the embodiment shown, the modules 7 with electrical power. The modules 7 can include any electrical and electronic functions and therefore can perform both switching functions for currents and signals, power distribution functions, signal processing functions, and the like.
  • In the case 17 is a ladder arrangement 6 provided in the conductor rails 8th to supply the modules 7 with one or more supply voltages or for carrying switched currents (if one of the modules 7 a switching function perceives) are provided. The conductor rails 8th can carry high currents and, in the event that they carry a supply voltage, can be single or all in the switchgear 2 located modules 7 be electrically connected to a power supply for the corresponding modules 7 provide. Furthermore, the conductor arrangement 6 Signal lines and / or test leads 14 contain.
  • The modules 7 can be electrically connected to the conductors in the conductor arrangement 6 , the conductor rails 8th and the signal lines 14 , either hardwired or via module interfaces 10 , ie, for example, a detachable contacting device, detachable with the switchgear 2 be connected.

A PTC sensor generally has a transition temperature at which the ohmic resistance of the PTC sensor increases by orders of magnitude. The magnitude of the increase of the ohmic resistance is called herein a jump resistance. In the arrangement of the PTC sensors connected in series, exceeding a temperature threshold value on one of the PTC sensors can therefore be detected by the total resistance of the series-connected PTC sensors correspondingly increasing. For several temperature sensors 13 on a module 7 These can be provided with different transition temperatures, so as to take into account the different heating of individual modules on the module and their temperature tolerance.

  • Also in the embodiment of the 3 the temperature sensors for the various detachable module interfaces are connected in series, so that the corresponding central unit 3 can determine a possible temperature deviation via a measurement of the resistance value of the series connection. In particular, in the pluggable or removable modules, such an embodiment is advantageous because it has a fixed wiring of the temperature sensors 13 enable.
  • In 5A and 5B are possible connection types of the temperature sensor at the module interface 10 shown as a module 7 a contactor 30 is used or a contactor 30 on a module 7 is arranged next to other modules.

  • The insertion of the temperature sensor 13 in the cable plug shoe (ring cable lug) is in 6 shown schematically. For this, the temperature sensor is inserted into a clamping section of the cable plug shoe (ring cable lug) 25 introduced and jammed there, so that this as intimate connection with the cable plug shoe (ring cable lug) 25 receives, in which the heat transfer resistance is minimized. In order to minimize external influences, the clamping section of the cable plug shoe (ring cable lug) is 25 , in which the temperature sensor is located, with a shrink tube 26 surround. It is also possible that the sensor is encapsulated with the ring cable lug, for example using an epoxy resin.
  • In the embodiments described above, the temperature sensors in the respective modules may be provided as PTC sensors with different transition temperatures, depending on the temperature at which a critical limit for the respective module 7 is exceeded.
  • In 7 a temperature monitoring system according to another embodiment is shown. Here is the central unit 3 with a first and a second switchgear 21 . 22 connected, in each of which modules 7 are provided. The temperature sensors 13 are either on the modules 7 in the switchgear 21 . 22 and / or at their module interfaces 10 arranged in the ways previously described or in any other distributed manner.
  • The temperature sensors 13 Each switchgear is connected in series and via a temperature interface in the interface 4 the total resistance of the arrangement can be tapped off via two measuring lines. The central office 3 is with the two switchgear 21 . 22 connected so that the temperature sensors 13 the first and the second switchgear 21 . 22 are connected in series via the corresponding temperature interfaces, so that all temperature sensors 13 both switchgear 21 . 22 connected in series with each other. This is from the central unit 3 the total resistance of the arrangement detectable. If now the PTC sensors 13 in the first switchgear 21 with a first transition temperature and with a first jump resistance and the PTC sensors 13 the second switchgear 22 with a second of the first different transition temperature and with a second of the first different Jump resistance are provided, it can be detected by the occurrence of a change in resistance that a fault in one of the switchgear 21 . 22 occured. Furthermore, it can be determined by the extent of the change in resistance, in which the switchgear 21 . 22 the temperature change has occurred. For more than two substations, in the above manner with the central office 3 In general, the PCT sensors are designed with different resistance changes that occur at different transition temperatures.
  • For detection of the switchgear 21 . 22 , in which the temperature increase has occurred, the central office must query the electrical resistance of the overall arrangement continuously or at predetermined times or intervals and detect the resistance change in a change, for example by a difference of the measured resistance before and after the occurrence of resistance change.
  • In all embodiments may in the switchgear evaluation 19 be provided either on the modules 7 or outside the modules 7 in the switchgear 2 are provided and with a the respective module 7 assigned output element 18 , such as a light indicator, are coupled so that the temperature sensor 13 in addition to being read by the central unit 3 also from the evaluation unit 19 can be read and a temperature increase or exceeding a maximum temperature by means of the output element 18 can be issued. This will allow a service technician who is due to one in the central unit 3 detected temperature exceeded a relevant switchgear investigated immediately detects the location of the temperature exceeded on the basis of the output of the output element, ie on which module 7 the temperature exceeded occurred.

At the contacting positions of the modules 40 with the individual lines are appropriate temperature sensors 13 provided so that occurring temperature increases can be detected. The connection of the individual temperature sensors with the module interface 10 is not shown for reasons of clarity.
