This equipment comprises of high current source for testing of circuit breakers with additional facility for temperature rise testing (thus incorporating testing for moulded case, vacuum & air circuit breakers as per IEC 60947-2).
Fully automatic testing with pre-programmed test sequence for Overload Test, Short-circuit Test & Temperature Rise Test (additional option: current cycling test)
Available in multi-pole testing options
Drop down menu in the software to once select the type (rating or calibre) of Circuit Breaker: Rest of the test parameters get selected automatically (User can simply jump from one type of test model to other instantly)
User can define test parameters for any circuit breaker under test. The test sequence is carried out automatically with full control of supervisor. By default, IEC based test parameters & sequence is automatically configured (Referred standard is 60947-2). Two clauses, viz. 126.96.36.199.4 and 188.8.131.52 are chosen as a base for software.
TestWare Software: NI LabVIEW based for user interface, settings selection, process control & report generation
Temperature Rise software module
Servo Controlled Regulation ensures stable voltage at the output (with in-built instrumentation for current regulation at any load for testing circuit breakers).
24 temperature sensors with ch-ch isolation with PC interface
Calibrated high end CTs for measurement accuracy
Point on Wave Firing system for accurate phase angle
Transient Recording facility for current
Can test relays, heavy duty switches, circuit breakers, transformers (The high current source can be used for any other application wherein a constant current is required to be sourced)
PC Interface module specially selected for this application
Output on copper bus-bars
Emergency OFF Push Button
Protection & Safety features
Specifications of 4000 A continuous current model:
Specifications of 7500 A continuous current model:
This equipment comprises of high current source for testing of circuit breakers with additional facility for temperature rise testing (thus incorporating testing for moulded case, vacuum & air circuit breakers as per IEC 60947-2). The system integrates a servo controlled source with closed loop current feedback to maintain the current constant. It has the necessary instrumentation for maintaining current at full load & other conditions arising in testing at high current. The bench has a PC based control system with temperature data logger (24 channel with ch-ch isolation amplifiers). The data logger displays as well as stores a set of temperature values with time.
