The Macromatic VAKP480A is a voltage monitor relay. This 8 Pin plug-in relay has a nominal voltage of 480V. It monitors against over or under voltage errors and has an output of 10A SPDT. The VAKP480A features an adjustable pick-up voltage, adjustable drop-out voltage, and an adjustable time delay ranging from 0.1-10 sec. It features an LED that is red when the unit is energized or green when it is not. It uses an 8 Pin 70169-D octal socket. Whether the relay operates for undervoltage or overvoltage protection is subject to the kind of output contacts being used.

When the voltage stays above the preset pick-up voltage (360-600V AC), then the unit is energized. If the voltage goes below the preset drop out (270-570V AC), for greater duration than the drop-out time delay, then it de-energizes.

Overvoltage protection makes use of a normally closed contact. The voltage needs to stay below the preset pick-up voltage for the load to be energized while the relay itself remains de-energized. If the voltage goes above the pick-up, the reverse happens, until voltage goes below the preset drop-out.

Undervoltage monitoring requires a normally open contact. The load stays on and the relay is energized if the voltage stays above the preset pick-up. Voltage going below the preset drop-out de-energizes both the load and the relay.
