T&R Test Equipment 100ADM-F 100A Waveform Filter
The T&R 100ADM-F filter unit reduces the level of current harmonics when testing electro-mechanical protection relays. This Waveform Filter has been designed for use with the T&R range of secondary injection test sets.
All electro-mechanical protection relays have iron cores that saturate and distort the test current under high overload test conditions. The distortion causes significant errors in the measured trip time of these relays during testing. Distortion of the waveform can be a particular problem with disc induction type over-current and sensitive earth fault relays.
For example, testing a CDG11 disc induction over-current relay without a filter causes significant timing errors. The results bellow show the errors for a 1.3s 1A CDG11 over-current relay on its 0.5A plug setting, tested at 5A.
The 100ADM-F filter unit has nine current ranges covering 0.25A to 100A and is supplied in an insulated case, complete with protective cover and carrying strap.
T&R 100ADM-F Key Features:
- Forces test current to a sinusoid
- Improves timing accuracy when testing electro-mechanical relays
- 0.25A – 100A ranges
- High overload capability
- 50/60Hz operating frequency
- High efficiency
Frequency - The unit may be used at either 50Hz or 60Hz, selectable by a switch on the front panel.
Range Selection - The lower ranges (0.25A-50A) are selected by a switch, and the highest current range is selected by a terminal.
Current Monitor - A current monitoring output is provided on all the filter units that provides an output of 0-100mA corresponding to the rated current for the range.
