Using SCR’s the ETI PI-1600B eliminates closing time errors. Initiation at the zero crossover point eliminates DC offset in the current waveform and results in accurate, repeatable test results even with short-duration currents for high speed solid state or electromechanical trip devices.

  • Input: 208-240 VAC +/- 10% (Switch Selectable)
  • 9.8KVA Continuous (Test up to 1600 Amp Circuit Breakers)
  • Digital Memory Ammeter Controller MAC-20
  • Rugged plastic and aluminum enclosure with removable protective lids
  • Selectable Output Connections for all types impedance loads
  • Variable pulse times for convenient preset output current 

ETI PI-1600B advanced features:

Serial port: This standard serial port may be connected to a printer, computer, or other device to print or store time and current values of test results in ASCII format.

Remote Terminal Jack: This RJ-12 modular jack provides a six wire connection to a remote serial terminal, which provides complete monitor and control functions as well as advanced features such as serial number entry and date/time functions.

Initiating Control: The advance initiate circuitry provides both pulse preset modes for cycles or seconds for output duration.

Zero DC Offset: Use of digitally controlled SCR’s instead of a contractor to initiate the output of the test set eliminates closing time error and thereby ensures precise initiation of the output current waveform at the voltage zero crossing point every time.
