Safety and flexibility: a testing system you can rely on
The FTL test block is designed specifically for improving safety and facilitating the interface between substation devices, such as protection relays, fault recorders, revenue meters, and various components of the power grid’s system side, including voltage and current transformers.
By utilizing disconnect pins, the FTL test block isolates substation devices from the system side equipment. This isolation enables the execution of secondary injection testing, which can be conveniently performed through the banana jacks located on the front side of the test block.
- Finger-safe – There are no exposed metallic parts on the FTL test block, greatly increasing safety during testing. Even the back-side is finger-safe.
- Keyed Disconnect Pins – Disconnect pins are keyed to the corresponding slots of the test block, preventing mistakes and errors during test.
- Less than 2 mΩ internal resistance – Thanks to the patented construction, FTL test blocks have an extremely low internal resistance. This ensures a lighter load on instrumentation transformers and no impact on heat generation within panels.
- Ideal for Retrofit of Older FT Switches – The FTL models are available in any even number within the range of 8 to 20-pole configurations. The 10-pole models use the same panel cutout as the older FT switches. Even the terminal labeling is the same. That means that you can have the increased safety and efficiency from the FTL without having to change your engineering drawings.
