Circuit breaker test equipment and analysers
As a circuit breaker manufacturer, the use of BTS2000 stationary test equipment ensures state-of-the-art quality and production speed. Service and commissioning for transmission, distribution and generation is also quick, complete and simple with the SA10 and SA5 circuit breaker analysers.
You can monitor the condition of your circuit breakers from anywhere in the world with the online monitoring system (OLM), while gas analysis using the SF6-analyser and leak detection with the SF6-IR leak unit is easy and quick.
Our customer base stretches worldwide, and includes ABB, Alstom, Siemens, RWE, BC Hydro, Vattenfall, EON, Crompton Greaves, Eskom, Hyosung corp, Ormazabal, Powerlink, Transgrid and Furnas, to name a few.
Circuit breaker service and commissioning
The SA10 is small, rugged and easy to use. The unit is well established on the world market and is used by breaker experts worldwide. Some advantages:
- Built in micro-ohm meter (200ADC)
- Rugged and light (11.7kg)
- Supports digital and analogue transducers for travel parameters and damping
- Automatic measurement of coil / motor voltage / current
- Wireless communication
- Fully compatible with our factory test units
- Flexible and powerful software (BTS11, free and delivered with the unit)
A wide range of accessories can be provided.
Online monitoring of circuit breakers
The OLM is a complete condition monitoring system which gives you the possibility to analyse your breakers from anywhere in the world. It generates an alarm if any of the important circuit breaker components are malfunctioning. With the use of trend analysis you can even get alarms before a circuit breaker failure.
- The complete circuit breaker history is stored
- Trend analysis
- Monitoring of the circuit breaker with internet / intranet
- Reference installations for customer review available
BTS2000 stationary circuit breaker test unit
The fully automatic system BTS2000 gives the factory a secure and reliable production. Complete with acquisition unit and power supplies, it operates and gathers all relevant circuit breaker data. It is used not only for routine testing, but also for type testing and endurance tests.
- Complete routine and type testing of the circuit breaker
- Fully-automatic measurement and circuit breaker operation
- Compatible with all relevant IEC / ANSI standards
Breaker test equipment accessories
Light power supplies (8kg, 30A), transducer fastening kits, Bluetooth communication kits, standard cable sets, customised cable sets and computers are examples of accessories that are available to make working days easier for service and factory personnel.
The OLM monitoring device has resources to monitor SF6 gas density, coil current, motor current, coil circuit conductivity, power voltage, power line current, temperature, and mechanical travel status, as well as pressure.
The SA10 is the circuit breaker timer developed by professionals for professionals. It has a built-in micro Ohm meter / Ductor for measuring static and dynamic resistance of the breaker poles. It weighs 11.6 kg / 26 lbs.
Elcon International's OLM can be used on any voltage level, type and brand of circuit breakers such as conventional air-insulated switchgear (AIS) and gas-insulated switchgear (GIS).
Elcon’s PDT3 Toolkit includes different fittings to easily connect it to most types of Siemens, ABB and Areva (Alstom) breakers.
Online monitoring systems assist network providers in meeting new industry demands.
Every breaker manufacturer needs to test their breakers in order to ensure the functionality of their products.
The SA5 unit is fully utilised when connected to a notebook PC.
The SA10 unit is designed to be used together with a notebook computer, even if some fundamental tests can be done stand-alone.
The 660MW Walney Extension Offshore Wind Farm will be located in the Irish Sea, approximately 19km off the coast of Cumbria in the UK, neighbouring the 367.2MW Walney Offshore Wind Farm.
