ACTAS - Model BTT - High-Precision Battery-Operated Timing Analyser
ACTAS BTT is a battery-operated, hand-held measuring device which can determine operating times, contact synchronicity, sequence time and coil currents extremely quickly and easily. Thanks to this extensive functionality and its high measurement accuracy, ACTAS BTT can be put to a wide range of different uses when measuring the operating times of low-, medium- and high-voltage switchgear devices, relay contacts, contactors and switch disconnectors, to mention but a few applications.
- Determination of operating times
- Test for contact synchronicity
- Determination of CO sequence time
- Measurement of coil currents
- Compact, ergonomic design
- Battery operation for up to 12 hours
- Easy-to-read graphical display
- Status display for inputs and outputs
- Bluetooth incl. remote control function for Android
ACTAS BTT features one output for controlling the OPEN coils and one output for controlling the CLOSE coils of a switchgear device. Both outputs can be used to control DC- and AC-operated coils. The determination of operating times can be carried out simply and reliably on up to three main contacts by triggering C, O and CO switching operations. The clear graphical display shows the corresponding operating times for all the binary inputs as the result.
As well as determining the operating times, ACTAS BTT also establishes the synchronicity of the opening and closing operations of the main contacts.
When assessing a switchgear device, for example, this allows determination of the time interval between the first and last contact touch of the poles during a closing or opening operation in a three-phase grid.
Measurement of coil currents
The coil current is measured automatically during the measurement of the operating times. Both the mean and the peak value are displayed as the result, allowing assessment of the mechanical and/or electrical functioning of the release coils.
The inputs and outputs are galvanically isolated and protected against overvoltage. The outputs are also protected against overload and overheating.
All the inputs and outputs of the device are controlled in real time and their status is shown on the display. Check for the control voltage of the switchgear device The integrated monitoring unit indicates whether the control voltage is applied to the CLOSE and OPEN coils of the switchgear device. Incorrect connection of the measuring device or faulty cables are also reliably detected in this way.
Thanks to its compact, ergonomic design, the measuring device can be held and operated with just one hand. Acoustic signals and a graphical display which is even easy to read in direct sunlight make the device userfriendly.
The measuring device features dedicated keys for eachtest mode. The ergonomic arrangement of the keys makes for optimum handling, measurements can be carried out quickly and easily. ACTAS BTT can be operated on the device itself or with an Android smart phone. Test reports can be generated, saved and sent using a smart phone.
ACTAS BTT is supplied with power by means of integrated rechargeable batteries which provide continuous operation for up to 12 hours. The charging status of the batteries and the charging process itself are monitored with a microprocessor and an LED shows when charging is in progress. The device can be operated during charging.
ACTAS BTT comes complete with a full set of accessories which includes all the cables, adapters and crocodile clamps required. The cable sets are fitted with 4 mm safety plugs for connection to the switchgear device.
