  • Overcurrent and Earth Fault Protection Assemblies RAIG
  • 3 Phase Over-current and Earth Fault Protection Assembly RAHL 401
  • 3 Phase Over-current and Earth Fault Protection Assembly RAHL 411
  • 2 Phase Overcurrent and Directional Earth Fault Protection Assembly RAHL 421
  • 2 Phase Overcurrent and Directional Earth Fault Protection Assembly RAHL 422
  • Rotor Earth Fault Protection Assembly using RXIDK 2H
  • Rotor Earth Fault Protection Assembly using RXHL 421
  • Selected COMBIFLEX modules
This letter also serves as the 'Last time buy notification’ for the Protection Relays and modules entering the classic phase. For more details, please refer to the product specific sections below.

The protection assemblies and modules listed in the overview table below will be transferred from ‘Active’ to ‘Classiclife cycle phase from July 1, 2018.
