AMS Tester for testing the AMS functionality

555010

RF characteristics

Waveguide component type:
AMS tester

Electrical characteristics

Operating modes:
Selectable via rotary switch. Simulation of arc signals, simulation of insulation resistance, “OFF”
Local signaling:
Interlock signal indication:
2 x LEDs
• red LED = all contacts open
• green LED = all contacts closed
• red LED + green LED = some contacts open, some contacts closed

Status signal indication:
3 x LEDs
• red LED = alarm
• yellow LED = warning
• green LED = ready

ON indication:
• green LED = in operation

Battery monitoring:
• ON indication steady green if battery is charged
• ON indication flashing green if battery is discharged, battery must be changed immediately

Further remarks

Remark:
• Tests the function of the U-Link/ Line Section and the Control Unit
• Simulates arcing and different insulation resistances with the intent to test AMS warnings and alarms
• Checks operation of interlock and status relays
• Easy operation with one single rotary switch
