NEW  TFS 2100E - THE MOST ACCURATE TRAVELLING WAVE FAULT LOCATOR SYSTEM> may 2014

The new ISA TFS 2100E system is the most accurate and easy to install travelling wave fault locator system. The all-in-one solution for the HV network fault location, the system is made of:
• TDU 100E: the device installed at substations.
•TAS 2100E: the software installed into the Master Unit.
It applies to any type of network: AC or DC and thanks to its automatic calculation of the fault distance, fastness as the fault is located in few milliseconds and accuracy, providing the location of the error in less than 150 m, TFS 2100E minimizes the line  outage time.
In addition, the location is performed directly on the network map and the GPS synchronization is embedded into TDU 100E. The TFS 2100E is a fast, easy to set up and non intrusive system, whose communication is performed via internet, modem and/or point to point connection. Also   IEC61850-8 interface for the substation connection is available.

NEW TD 1000 PLUS > january 2011

ISA is proud to announce the new TD 1000 Plus, which completes the range of secondary injection test sets. The new test set is endowed with two current outputs to test differential relay characteristic curve and not only the pick-up current. In addition, the frequency of this current can be changed as with voltages: this allows to test the second harmonic restraint characteristic of the differential relay. Last, the steady voltage output power is increased from 30 VA to 50 VA.
The test set is also available as 15 Hz model: it has two current outputs to test differential relay and, in addition to that, high power is available at 15 Hz. This allows testing old railway and generator protection relays. This model does not have the DC battery simulator.
TD 1000 Plus is available in 4 different models:
• TD 1000 Plus – 220 V
• TD 1000 Plus – 115 V
• TD 1000 Plus 15 Hz – 220 V

BSG 1000 - SAFE CIRCUIT BREAKER TESTING WITH BOTH SIDES GROUND > november 2010

New option for ISA Circuit Breaker Analysers CBA1000 and CBA2000.
• Safety at work: the ground is on both sides of the CB under test.
• 100% immune from parasitic currents.
• Test of Circuit Breakers having Graphite Nozzles.
• The method applies to all kinds of circuit breakers.
With the new BSG 1000 option for both CBA 1000 and CBA 2000, it is possible to perform circuit breaker timing test with both sides of the CB grounded. The grounding connection is NOT removed during the test, as it has to be with conventional test equipments.
Safety is becoming more and more important, and several laws and regulation all around the world prescribe that, in high voltage installation, all parts which are to be worked on shall be earthed (grounded) and short circuited.
To improve personnel safety, to reduce hooking time and to preserve the test integrity, the use of a BSG 1000 is the best solution.

DRTS 66 - THE NEW GENERATION OF TEST EQUIPMENT FOR PROTECTIVE RELAYS, ENERGY METERS, TRANSDUCERS AND POWER QUALITY METERS > october 2010

ISA is proud to announce the DRTS66, the new generation of test equipment for Protective Relays, Energy meters, Transducers and Power Quality meters:

DRTS 66 is the leading edge most powerful and accurate Protective relay, energy meters (class 0.2) and transducers test set manufactured by ISA.
The locally and PC controlled test set generates high precision (0.05% accuracy) digital signal using multiple DSP’s technology.
Its powerful current outputs (6 x 32 A at 430 VA or 3 x 64 A at 860 VA) and voltage outputs (6 x 300V at 100 VA) allows to test any type of relays including old electromechanical relays.
The test sets integrates the IEC61850 protocol interface for testing relay with Ethernet-based substation communication protocol.
The unit is controlled by the Test & Data Management Software TDMS with manual and automatic testing functionality, editor of report and database management.

Three hardware configurations are available:
• DRTS 66: with 6 Current 6 Voltage generators plus 1 battery simulator.
• DRTS 64: with 6 Current and 4 Voltage generators plus 1 battery simulator.
• DRTS 34: 3 Current and 4 Voltage generators plus 1 battery simulator.

NEW IEC61850 DRTS 6 - COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL FOR OUR RELAYS TEST SET DRTS 6 > october 2010

We are proud to announce our new development, the IEC61850 interface for relay testing with Ethernet-based substation communication protocol.
The standard IEC 61850 describes the communication of devices in substations. IEC61850 messages coming from the devices connected to the substation network (such as a relay) are also called GOOSE. GOOSE messages describe binary status signals over the substation network and are also used for relays tripping . For relay testing applications within IEC 61850 substations it is necessary to access to these data. This new feature is performed by ISA Automatic Relay Test Set DRTS 6 and with the new software TDMS rev. 5.01.
By means of a dedicated hardware upgrading and a new software, ISA DRTS 6 can expand his testing capabilities by handling those IEC61850 messages.
The IEC61850 Interface option for DRTS 6 is required for relay testing with Ethernet-based substation communication protocol. The IEC61850 Interface is mounted directly on the front panel of the DRTS 6. It is possible to upgrade old DRTS 6 units.

OVERHEAD LINE FAULT LOCATOR > april 2010

The Traveling Wave Fault Location System TFS 2100 provides accurate fault location solution for transmission and distribution power lines.
The TFS 2100 traveling wave fault locator, determines distance to fault by measuring the time for a surge to travel from fault position to measurement point. The fault distance measurement error is less than ±150m typical regardless of the line length.
The TFS 2100 consists of Traveling Wave Data Acquisition Unit TDU 100 installed in substations, a Master Station Software deployed in the control center and communication network. Each TDU 100 can monitor up to 4 lines, hence when more than one TDU 100 is installed in a substation, a Data Processing Server DPS 100 is used to collect traveling wave data acquisition units and communicate with the Master Station.
