The Versatile and High Power Omicron CMC 356 Relay Tester

by Protec Tech Team September 26, 2018

Some of the more common misoperations of electro-mechanical relays can be attributed to welded contacts or open circuited operating coils. While these type issues may initially appear to be small and inconsequential, if not detected early, the impacts can seriously affect the protection and reliability of electrical distribution. The failure of protective relays to operate in actual fault conditions can be extremely dangerous to the electrical system itself and more importantly...to those who work near the affected circuit.

Testing Relays Using the Doble F2253 Relay Test Set

by Protec Tech Team July 05, 2018

Protective Relays could be characterized as circuit managers with varying degrees of supervisory and control capabilities depending on the complexity and criticality of the circuit.  They are designed to recognize abnormal or fault conditions, and to isolate the affected portion or the electrical system.  Not only does this allow the unfaulted portion of the electrical system to continue to function normally, but it diminishes the impact of the faulted portion of the system.  Changes to power system circuits and the coordination of protective devices can change due to age, loading, environmental impacts, new construction, etc. It is therefore critical that these devices function properly and are appropriately coordinated when they are called into action.

The F2000 Series Doble Relay Test Sets

by Protec Tech Team June 25, 2018

Relays are often utilized in electrical facilities as isolated switches or protective devices for various electrical equipment. Due to the mechanical operation of relays, the contacts are prone to contact degradation, so it is important to regularly test for the electromechanical, electronic and protection schemes to ensure safe and reliable operation, and to avoid a faulty relay system acting up during critical operations. To assess relays and protections schemes, consider investing in a relay test set or a power system simulator.

Doble F6150 Offers Exceptional Relay Test Flexibility

by Protec Tech Team April 08, 2016

The testing of high impedance electromechanical relays is a challenge for any test instrument. This is especially true if an over-current electromechanical relay is being used to detect ground or earth faults, one of the most critical and sensitive protections in the system. The ground over-current relays are relied on the most when everything else fails to detect a high resistance fault in the system, therefore it is vital to ensure that the ground over current relays are working correctly.
