With the critical role that protective relays play in arresting and isolating electrical faults, it is extremely important to know that they are operating in concert with their design and intent. The unplanned downtime and damages associated with the mis-operation of protective devices during fault conditions can be incredibly detrimental. Regular maintenance testing allows the discovery and resolution of such issues before they are able to escalate into very costly problems.
If you need a way to test the protective devices on your electrical power system, consider checking out the Omicron CMC 356 Universal Relay Test Set and Commissioning Tool. This test set is a complete and rugged tool that is ideal for industrial applications.
The Omicron CMC 356 Universal Relay Test Set allows you to test most protective relays.
