ACTAS Operating Software

With ACTAS test systems, the output of switching sequences and the measurements performed on a switchgear device are fully controlled by means of the operating software.

Know-how put into practice
The ACTAS software is the product of many years of practical experience and close cooperation with network operators and switchgear manufacturers. The resulting test applications can be used to solve any test task likely to be met in practice.

The whole test at a glance
The central element of the operating software is the test monitor. Tests are created, carried out and archived here. All test parameters and results can be seen at a glance. Tests are started and monitored directly in the test monitor with featuring zoom functions and measurement cursors. Indicators show whether or not the measurement results lie within the defined limit values.

Flexible directory structure for individual requirements
All switchgear data and test parameters, including the results, are automatically saved in a freely definable directory structure. This makes it easy for tests to be called up, edited or used as templates. Compressing switchgear data and measurement results so that they can be sent by e-mail, for example, is made simple by the central storage of data. Archiving the data or exporting them to other data formats or databases is child‘s play too.

Result help
A help function supports users in the selection of the measurement results they require and the subsequent evaluation of those results. Descriptions and graphs facilitate the correct interpretation of the results obtained.

Automatic generation of test reports
The software includes an option for automatically creating test reports to document test results. As well as the results themselves, reports can also include curve characteristics of recorded signals, switchgear data and test parameters. The contents and layout of test reports can be customized to meet individual requirements.

Applications

The test systems of the ACTAS product range have been specially developed to perform automatic general operating tests on all types of breaker, regardless of the type of drive unit, including, for example,

  1. circuit breakers GIS and AIS
  2. load switches
  3. disconnectors and earthing switches

The first operating tests are carried out during breaker development. Once final factory tests and inspections have been carried out and the breaker has been installed, regular, on-site service tests safeguard the full operationality of a breaker.

All the different models are suitable for both manual and automated tests. Freely configurable test plans make it possible to pre-define all the test steps and analysis functions, quickly and efficiently.

The ACTAS range includes a broad spectrum of devices. AlsoStationary test systems with customer-specific configurations are currently being used by leading breaker manufacturers for final tests. Installation in 19" racks allows the integration of automatically controlled voltage sources for supplying releases and drive units.

Both the stationary and portable test systems are also suitable for use in the laboratory for breaker development or type tests, for example. The freely programmable sequence control system makes it possible to simulate all kinds of switching operations. Even life tests with 10000 or more operating cycles present no problem.

Compatibility
All the test systems of the ACTAS product range are based on identical functional principles and can be operated via the same software.
