The Omicron CIBANO 500 Circuit Breaker Test System is a 3-in-1 system capable of testing all types of circuit breakers, medium-voltage or high-voltage circuit breakers with live and dead tank design.
The CIBANO 500 is a micro-ohmmeter, timing analyzer, and a coil and motor supply all in one device, allowing for all important circuit breaker tests to be carried out even when a station battery is not available.READ MORE >>
High amp power is what’s needed in a relay test set for proper testing of protection relays. The Omicron CMC 356 Universal Relay Test Set and Commissioning Tool can handle high burden electro mechanics on transformers reliably, and its digital technology provides an unmatched dependability even in small amp testing situations.READ MORE >>
Power factor tests compare the capacitive current to the resistive current used by a piece of equipment. If the capacitive current becomes large in relation to the resistive current, it indicates a potential problem with the insulation. Insulation breakdown often leads to equipment breakdown.
Protec Equipment Resources offers many power factor test sets for rent. These units apply voltage to the conductors while measuring losses to ground. By comparing the results to historical results, abnormal conditions can be easily identified. Further tests can help determine exactly where the problem exists.
While power factor testing usually involves transformers and breakers, tests can be useful on other types of equipment such as switches, motors and voltage regulators.
Electrical tests on transformers, current transformers, voltage transformers, grounding systems, lines and cables, and circuit breakers can be performed with the Omicron CPC 100 Multi-Functional Primary Test System.
The patented test system replaces several individual testing devices and offers new, innovative testing methods.
The Omicron CPC 100 Multi-Functional Primary Test System is the base for multiple accessories. These facilitate further applications, such as tan delta measurements, as well as line and ground impedance measurements.
Current transformers are used for relaying and metering purposes in electrical power systems. They connect the high power primary side to the protection and metering equipment on the secondary side. Depending on the application they are used for, current transformers are designed differently.READ MORE >>
