Secu Access (SAX) - Combining Terminal Block and Test Interface

SecuControl proudly presents Secu Access, a new terminal block with integrated test access point. Secu Access (SAX) mounts on DIN-rail or with screws, making it exceptionally versatile.

Secu Access performs both functions of a terminal block and switch, and therefore reduces wiring and panel space needs. Application areas include relay testing, meter testing and current measurement. The modular terminal block attaches to many wire terminal types (ring / spade / solid wire). Just insert a testplug into the access point and start testing! Like the Interface Test System, SAX features a finger-safe front and keyed entry system. Current shorting testplugs provide additional user safety. With an internal resistance of only ca. 2mO, SAX is an ideal solution for the use with highly sensitive microprocessor relays. The SAX product brochure is available in our download section.

SecuControl to Team with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories

Alexandria, VA - 18 May 2006 - SecuControl Inc. and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. today announced plans to work together in North America and other markets to introduce, assemble, sell, and support the Interface Test System (ITS). "The ITS was designed with the user in mind," said SecuControl owner Hubert Ostmeier. "Our product increases the safety of test engineers and streamlines the testing process.

The technical principle can be applied to various circumstances, in which the accessing of electrical circuits is called for. Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. proved a natural partner to apply the ITS to its product line." The ITS consists of a test block and a corresponding test plug. The test block is installed in the electrical panel and the test plug remains with the test set. When the test plug is inserted, circuits are opened and redirected to the test set. On the system side, CT circuits are automatically shorted inside the plug. For the safety of the user, both block and plug are keyed to assure the right method of insertion. Benefits of the ITS include:

  • modular design
  • increased safety with dead front
  • saves space in panel
  • low resistance contacts
