The test set allows the releases to be configured, monitored, controlled and tested. Ekip Connect can connect to the releases in the point-to-point or network modes, and connection is made using the front test connector or to communication modules installed on the circuit-breaker.
Low resistance measurement is used to determine the condition of joined junctions like circuit breaker and relay contacts and terminals. When these joints weaken, carbon deposits, grease, dirt and other contaminants resulting in the resistance to increase, which in turn causes the junction to not efficiently carry the current, dissipating the power losses as heat. Thus, leading to further deterioration and eventual failure.
