With its ‘hands on’ approach working on-site with end users, WEIS GMBH & CO. KG has repeatedly taken the lead in pioneering new methods of testing switchgear, for example …
1988 – Developed Dynamic MOVING CONTACT µΩ Resistance Measurement and presented new test technique to a major switchgear manufacturer which was immediately adopted to solve an inherent testing issue on certain circuit breaker designs with graphite arcing contacts.
1989 – Developed Dynamic CIRCUIT BREAKER Timing Measurement with Dual Grounds which was also adopted by the same major switchgear manufacturer.
1995 – Developed Dynamic Resistance Measurement with Dual Grounds.
1995 – Pioneered building Dynamic Timing Measurement with Dual Grounds for up to 4 contacts within a Circuit Breaker Timing Test Set.
2000 – Developed SA100 renaming the traditionally identified Circuit Breaker Timing Test Set, “Switchgear Analyser“, offering built-in Dynamic Timing Measurement with Dual Grounds for up to 6 contacts, 2 breaks per phase, with the highest currently available internally generated measurement signal source.
2001 – Developed self powered MM100 micro-ohm meter featuring a regulated 100A continuous or pulsed output for regular resistance measurement. Alternatively a high current pulsed output, 1200A maximum at 4V, for static measurements or dynamic profiling when cross-triggered operation with SA100 series for Dynamic Contact Resistance Measurement with Dual Ground testing on circuit breakers. Additional MM600 & MM900 models also developed.
2005 – PS100 variable AC/DC power supply introduced. Additional PS300 model with a very stable / low ripple 0 to 130Vdc output combined with a fast responding high current up to 23A specially designed for minimum operating voltage testing of breaker coils also released.
