1.1 Summarize

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

The High-Voltage Circuit Breakers dynamic characteristics testing instrument is my company designed to meet the need of testing HighVoltage Circuit Breakers . It takes the ARM7 unit for core to sample, process and then output; the main characteristic is that its operated in alt. It has many advantages such as intelligence, multi-function, accurate data, strong anti-jamming, easy operation, small size, beautiful appearance, etc; It can test the Circuit Breakers as follows: indoors or outdoors Circuit Breakers with less oil or more oil, vacuum Circuit Breakers, SF6 Circuit Breakers and so on.

open the cover of the explosion chamber, insert the transmission pole into the explosion chamber, and screw the inside end of the transmission pole tightly to the screw of the moving contact, the other end of the pole connects to the sample ruler. The ruler should glide in the runner easily, and the base of the ruler must be fixed to the explosion chamber. Requirements: connect the contact to the A1 on the front-panel, the signal lines plug of the sampler connects to the Sample Input interface, when fix the sample pole ,the sample ruler should be kept clean and straight. when theres pollute like oil or dust in the sample ruler, the ruler should be cleaned by gasoline or alcohol., or the measured results may be discrete. How to connect: all the moving contacts of the switches connects to the ground hole in the front-panel of the tester, the ground hole then connects to the earth ground reliably; the static contacts to the A,B,C hole correspondingly.(see Picture 38)
