Is it possible to confirgure Pre Alarms in Micrologic E

Micrologic E control units can be set to deliver pre-alarms via their optional M2C contacts. These pre-alarms can be used to warn operators that the current is approaching a trip threshold.
In this way, remedial measures (e.g. load-shedding, maintenance, etc.) can be taken before the circuit breaker trips, avoiding unnecessary shutdowns.

Two types of pre-alarms are available, depending on the control unit.
Long-time protection pre-alarm: all Micrologic E control units can be set to deliver a pre-alarm via one of their two outputs when the current reaches 90 % of the long-time protection current setting Ir.
Ground-fault protection pre-alarm: Micrologic 6.0 E control units can also be set to deliver a pre-alarm via one of their two outputs when the current reaches 90 % of the ground-fault protection pickup Ig.
Both Ir and Ig pre-alarms can be implemented if neither of the two outputs are required for other functions.
