ARCO 400 is a smart and rugged testing solution for all recloser controls. It provides the fastest way to perform simple manual trip and close checks. Using the OMICRON Smart Connect technology, ARCO 400 is capable of detecting recloser specific test adapters. The device simulates the recloser and enables three-phase testing of the controller in both lab and field environments. ARCO 400 is equipped with accurate 3-phase 12.5 A current amplifiers, 6-phase voltage amplifiers (8 V or 150 V range), six binary inputs, and nine binary outputs.
The ARCO Control software provides additional testing functionality through specific test tools, with the ability to control the ARCO 400 wirelessly. The execution of predefined ReCoPlan test plans allows for standardization and time savings.
Several ARCO 400s can be time-synchronized to GPS and simultaneously test high-speed distribution automation schemes using RelaySimTest. This allows for a complete testing of the scheme that includes both logic in the controllers and communication channels.
