Phoenix Contact Checkmaster 2 mobile test case for surge protection devices
Phoenix Contact has released Checkmaster 2, a mobile test case that lets technicians quickly test all Phoenix Contact pluggable surge protection devices to prevent unexpected failures and avoid unnecessary service calls.
The system features a convenient, integrated hand scanner that reads and identifies the surge protection device by its barcode. The test object is then inserted into the associated test adapter and the test process started via the touch panel screen. The surge protection device is electrically tested in an automatic test process that compares the current electrical parameters of the components with the specified reference values.
All of the installed protective elements of the surge protection device are electrically tested in a single cycle. These include triggered spark gaps, gas-filled surge protectors, varistors and suppressor diodes.
The results are easy to see and read on a colour display, and three status levels inform the technician of the current quality of the device. The three status levels are OK: Test passed, Warning: Tolerance limit reached, and Defect: Replacement required. These help the technician make informed decisions about the device to ensure the ongoing availability of systems.
The tests undertaken by the product conform with the requirements of IEC 62305-3 and are performed using a high voltage generator. For user convenience, the device documents and saves all test results to its internal memory. A USB port lets technicians transfer data for further processing as well as update software.
