Product of the week: Omicron CIBANO 500 – 3-in-1 System

As the world’s first circuit breaker test system to combine a high-accuracy micro-ohmmeter, a powerful and adjustable coil and motor supply (AC/DC), and a multi-channel timing analyser, the Omicron CIBANO 500 guarantees faster and safer wiring and test process and delivers all results in one combined test report. Increased productivity means increased satisfaction!

The Omicron CIBANO 500 is the first of its kind, allowing for all standard tests to be carried out on medium and high-voltage circuit breakers. The power supply provides the user with a continuous power output during all tests, resulting in reliable and reproducible testing conditions. This power supply ensures there is no need for risky and time-consuming connections to live DC circuits.

This comprehensive system covers the five standard tests – the static contact resistance test, minimum pick-up test, timing test, coil/motor current analysis and the undervoltage condition test. With the static contact resistance test, the CIBANO 500 checks for a low transmission resistance on the closed breaker to ensure that the load current flows with low losses. During the minimum pick-up test, the CIBANO 500 determines the minimum voltage necessary to trip and close a circuit breaker. This test is to make sure that your equipment can also be reliably operated in case of low DC supply.

Detect incorrect mechanical adjustments of your circuit breakers by measuring differences between the fastest and slowest phase with the timing test. CIBANO 500 records the current signature curve of the coils and motors during the circuit breaker operation. This analysis shows possible electrical or mechanical defects of the trip or close coils as well as of the release latch. The undervoltage condition test allows the user to set an exact undervoltage of the nominal value and measure the respective behaviour of the circuit breaker’s coils.
