Secucontrol at CIGRE – Paris – August 21 to 26

Welcome to the most fascinating and comprehensive global meeting of protection and automation professionals: the CIGRE Sessions 2016.

Visit Secucontrol in the exhibit hall on Niveau 1 / Level 1, Stand / Booth 145.

The world of secondary injection testing is evolving. CT and VT values continue to require periodic testing. But frequent software updates make it even more crucial to equip your panel with access points for all kinds of procedures. Discover with Secucontrol the two major trends in panel design:

1. The test access point – no plug needed – maximum flexibility

Test access points provide the maximum flexibility and accessibility for operation in the field. Everything is in place, so no plugs need to be carried around. Ideal for highly specialized environments that call for expert operations – check out our product lines STS, FTL, and the new LTS.

2. The new complex test plug: convenient, reliable and even safer than before

For routine testing, accessing the relay has never been so easy. With our new STP test plug even the insertion is a prescribed process. For fast and reliable maintenance testing, let us help you design the plug that will solve your testing needs for the lifetime of your panel – check out the new STP, FTS and LTB.

See you at CIGRE – Paris – August 21 to 26

Product Premiere at Georgia Tech: STS IED

SecuControl recently introduced the new Safety Test Switch (ST Switch). At the upcoming Georgia Tech Protective Relaying Conference, the Safety Test Switch will be on display, together with a never-before-shown new product variant: the STS IED.

Both the standard Safety Test Switch and the STS IED are direct retrofits for knife-blade FT switches with added benefits:
  • Finger-safe design and CT-shorting mechanism increase safety
  • Integrated banana jacks make test access easier and help avoid common mistakes
  • Status windows for visual confirmation of contact opening
  • FT switch cutout size
  • Customizable labeling
The difference lies in the test access points: The STS IED includes banana jacks for test access to the top side, to connect to Intelligent Electronic Devices. The standard Safety Test Switch has additional banana jacks on the system side. For current measurement and test access to the system side, test probes are available that fit both.

Whether you choose the standard Safety Test Switch or the STS IED: you get a better-than-equivalent test switch, increase safety and improve test access.

The STS IED does not only beat knife-blade test switches in regards to features, but also price. Ask us for a quote!

New Products On Display at Texas A&M Relay Conference

SecuControl is proud to show several new products at this year's Relay Conference.

The main innovation is the new Safety Test Switch - a better-than-equivalent alternative to FT switches.

The exhibition area is open today during the lunch break from 12:00 to 1:30 pm. Come see us today!

The new Safety Test Switch (ST Switch) brings test access into the year 2015. It combines advantages of legacy FT switches with safer design and easier operation.

Safety is increased through a finger-safe front. Shorting bridges in disconnect pins for currents ensure make-before-break CT shorting. Individual disconnect pins are keyed against mistakes.
  • FT switch cutout size
  • Integrated banana jacks
  • Visible open via status windows
  • Customizable labeling
The ST Switch: safer, more convenient test access, price competitive.

SecuControl is also presenting several other new products. Find out more about these innovations at www.secucontrol.com

We look forward to connecting with you soon!
