GIS Control Panel Testing

A foolproof control panel testing solution for GIS manufacturers and control panel manufacturers. Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) make use of sulphur-hexafluoride (SF6) gas as a dielectric medium for quenching the arc formed during contact separation. As SF6 has a strong dielectric strength, the insulation distances can be smaller. In GIS, all electrical components of the switchgear, such as, electrical bus bars, electrical isolators or disconnectors, circuit breakers, current transformers, voltage transformers, earth switches, and surge arrestors or lightning arresters are enclosed in a gas-tight enclosure filled with SF6 gas. This leads to a very compact switchgear design.

Circuit Breaker Time Interval Meter for measuring closing and opening times of circuit breakers. Circuit breakers are used in power generation and distribution networks as protective devices. They also perform the function of controlling, protecting, and isolating various electrical equipment and machinery used in industrial applications. They switch off the electrical circuit if an over current or short circuit occurs. If a circuit breaker takes too long to open, it could be catastrophic as it could cause equipment damage and danger to people.
