Testers out in the field know: That just before a work day is over, you often find yourself travelling through adverse weather conditions on bumpy roads for one last test. Since your fingers are cold and there isn’t much time, you’re always hoping to find a quick solution that doesn’t require too many hand movements and keeps the testing time to a minimum.
With the ARCO 400 we have significantly simplified the testing of recloser- and sectionalizer controls from the working first step. For example, with the intelligent OMICRON Smart Connect Technology, ARCO 400 recognizes the connected test adapters automatically and configure itself to the test controller.
And so it continues: For example, the open and close operation of the recloser control can be monitored without additional software. Individual protection functions are monitored by using clearly structured test modules in the ARCO Control operating software. Thanks to a wireless connection with ARCO 400, these tests are even able to be performed comfortably from inside of a truck.
At the same time, the three-phase test device is compact, lightweight and tough enough to withstand rough conditions. With these and other clever innovations, testers no longer need to stand outdoors for prolonged periods of time - because the entire test is done within a few minutes.
