When Testing GE M-PACT Plus Circuit Breaker, M-PRO Test Box is a Must

by Protec Tech Team July 14, 2016

Now available for rent from Protec, the GE M-PRO Test Box, is a must have when testing the health and configuration of the GE M-PACT Plus Air Circuit Breaker.

The GE M-PRO Test Box is used as a means of powering up an M-PRO Plus Protection Relay - Electronic Trip Unit, simulating faults by secondary injection or for performing a forced trip of the breaker.

M-PACT Plus breaker will be in the test mode while M-PRO Plus is connected to the Test Box through the test connector.

Connect the Test Box to the M-PRO Plus via the front panel 26-pin connector using a 15-pin to 26-pin converter.
Do not test the M-PRO Plus with the charger still connected, as this will disable power to the M-PRO Plus.

The GE M-PRO Test Box may be used as a simple power box to facilitate viewing of faults (e.g. after a trip) or the
history of trips.

by Protec Tech Team February 15, 2016

Test Static Trip I, II, & III trip units used on the LA and RL line of low voltage power circuit  breakers with the Siemens PTS-4 (PTS4) Secondary Injection Test Set.

The test set provides a means of testing the magnetic tripping  actuator as well as the trip unit. The portable test set, using power from an ordinary 120 volt convenience outlet, can provide circuit breaker testing equivalent to much more expensive and cumbersome primary current testing. 

With the  Siemens PTS-4, Static Trip III trip devices can be tested by themselves, or on a circuit breaker outside the cubicle, or inside the cubicle with the breaker in the TEST or DISCONNECTED position.A circuit breaker is provided in the PTS4 test set to prevent thermal damage from repeated high current tests.
