Retrofits for GEC Midos Range

P&B are pleased to announce that pin for pin solutions exist for almost all of the Midos relays.

The relays are based on the relays technology that powers Motorvision and Feeedervision which has seen service since 2000. The result then is a solution for the GEC midos relays that provide a truly unique and risk free means of upgrading and managing obsolescence of aging GEC relays.

The retrofit from P&B allows the existing case to be re-used, simply the relay is removed and the new relays inserted in its place. In most cases they are pin for pin, some how require a movement of terminal positions, others are supplied in a new case, which is still based on the original 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 sizes.



The new relays are effortless to install and configure, as seen here in a typical GEC Alsthom HMC1172 6.6kV starter panel

Voltage & Generator Relays

P&B retrofits provide solutions to the wide variety of instantaneous, inverse-time and definite-time (IDMT) delayed under and over voltage relays as well as neutral voltage displacement, check synchronism and voltage balance functions.

For generators, comprehensive protection is provided from P&Bs existing generator protection relays which are conveniently housed in midos-style cases making them ideal candidates for the quick replacement of the GEC range.

Relays are easily specified by their secondary CT rating – 1A or 5A, the original relay code, the auxiliary voltage and the original relay size.


The VT input of the P&B replacement is suitably rated for direct connection of phase to phase 415Vac.
All relays feature a 16 character 2-line display and are available in either a 70mm or 100mm case.

P&B introduce the MR-METI31 Directional Relay.

Pin for pin to the original METI 31 P&B can provide a quickly installed product. The MR-METI31 provides the same protection features as the previous METI31 providing directional protection (67) either in 2 phase and earth or 3 phase. Designed and manufactured by our in-house facilities in Manchester using high specification electronics for long-life and high-duty operations. The METI31 retrofit provides a risk-free and cost-effective way to manage equipment obsolescence.
