Transducer node for CIBANO 500
The CB TN3 transducer node allows you to carry out circuit breaker motion analysis with path-time diagrams.
Together with CIBANO 500 and a motion transducer, it checks the entire switch mechanism and the mechanical links during the opening and closing process. In this way, performance values such as velocity, over-travel or mechanical bounce can be compared with the manufacturer’s data or previous measurements.
The CB TN3 can be connected to most linear and rotary motion transducers available via three digital or analog channels. The measurement results are transmitted digitally and therefore without interference, to CIBANO 500.
Linear motion measurements with CIBANO 500 and CB TN3 are performed using a linear transducer and a magnetic tape which serves as encoder. The transducer is connected to a static area of the circuit breaker’s housing and the magnetic tape to the moving linear parts. This magnetic tape concept is easy and robust. It quickly mounts to many surfaces while no CAD data is necessary for test preparation. Setup and measurement is completed within 30 minutes.
