ATRT-03 S2

vanguard ATRT-03 S2

The ATRT-03 S2 determines the transformer turns ratio using the IEEE C57.12.90 measurement method. The ATRT-03 S2 outputs an excitation test voltage to the transformer primary windings. The induced secondary voltage is sensed and the transformer turns ratio is calculated. The ATRT-03 S2 is capable of measuring turns ratios from 0.8 to 15,000. The transformer turns-ratio, excitation current, and phase angle readings are displayed on the large LCD. The automatic transformer type detection feature allows the ATRT-03 S2 to detect and test 130 transformer types defined by ANSI, CEI/IEC.

vanguard trm-40

The TRM-40 features dual resistance-reading input channels that can measure two winding resistances simultaneously (primary and secondary windings of a transformer). It can provide a fast and stable reading of very large transformers by utilizing a 60Vdc power supply. The TRM-40 is capable of outputting a selectable test current from 1A to 40A.

CT-8000 S3

vanguard ct-8000-s3_s1

The CT-8000 S3 is Vanguard’s fourth generation EHV circuit breaker analyzer. The CT-8000 S3 is available with 3 (part number 9103-UC) or 6 contact timing channels (part number 9104-UC). The CT-8000 S3 can fully analyze a circuit breaker’s performance by measuring the main contact and resistor contact time, stroke, velocity, over-travel, bounce back and contact wipes. Also, an outstanding feature of the CT-8000 S3 is the ability to perform dynamic resistance tests on circuit breaker contacts.

vanguard ezct-10

The Model EZCT-10 is a microprocessor-based, current-transformer test set. This rugged and portable test set measures excitation current, turns ratio and winding polarity on single- and multi-ratio current transformers. Current transformers can be tested in their field-mounted configuration, eliminating the need to remove bushings or current transformers from the host equipment.
