ARTES 460 is the compact and universal solution for testing protection relays. Its built-in control panel, light weight and low noise level make this robust test system equally suitable for use on site and in the lab. ARTES 460 makes light work of highly complex test tasks. 4 voltage and 6 current outputs allow 3-phase tests on static and digital relays. Even 3-phase tests on differential protection relays can be carried out without additional equipment.
ARTES testing software
As a rule, all test tasks can be carried out using the integrated control panel. For complex protection functions, the ARTES PC software is a tool which can significantly simplify, automate and therefore speed up tests. For this purpose, the ARTES testing software provides a wide range of practical test monitors which are all included in the scope of delivery, in addition to the basic software:
Test any protection function by setting the test quantities
manually. In addition, the output signals can also be run as
linear or staircase ramps within the configured range.
Check the operating times and directional sensitivity of
Check the operating times and impedance zones of distance
Check the tripping characteristic and operating times of
differential protection relays
Check the QU protection function
Test paralleling devices and synchronizers
Check the pick-up and drop-off values of protection relays
Determine measuring transducer error
Event-controlled output of test sequences
Display and output COMTRADE records and generate any
