Complex switching operations can now be completed simply and reliably in a single test procedure using Phoenix Contact’s Fame 3 testing system. The testing system was designed for all measuring and testing tasks in grid protection devices for medium- and high-voltage switching systems. This addition to Phoenix Contact’s range of test connector systems takes into account the requirements of the South and North American markets.
The system’s distinguishing features include a shock-proof design and an automatic, leading transformer short circuit function, ensuring a high degree of safety when making measurements. It also allows all switching states to be detected clearly. The test connector with patented twist grip ensures a safe test process. Individual switching operations can be performed using service connectors.
Phoenix Contact’s system is equipped with the often-prescribed bolt connection technology. This means cables with diameters of up to 10mm² are easily connected using ring and fork-style cable lugs with a part width of only 8.2mm. The test connector strip is easily installed on the control cabinet panel using the patented wall mount. The modular design of the testing system allows the correct number of pins to be provided for every application.
The test connector system can be configured with the standard range of accessories for the Clipline complete terminal block system that allows it to offer a high degree of flexibility.
