A new addition to the CMC product family from OMICRON, the CMC 430 is the lightest and most precise protection test set in the world.

Weighing in at a mere 8.7kg, and with a robust design – including edge protection – the CMC 430 is ideally suited to portable applications, even when subjected to harsh ambient conditions and extreme temperature fluctuations.

The CMC 430’s technical merits really come to the fore when testing numerical and communication-based relay systems and measuring systems, especially during tests with up to three currents of 12.5A at the same time.

Here, its outstanding performance as a relay test set is combined with functions for hybrid measurements and recordings (analog, binary, GOOSE, and Sampled Values in accordance with IEC 61850).

The EnerLyzer Live software option enables hybrid measurements and recordings to be taken simultaneously with active output channels.

The six voltage outputs allow the synchro-check function to be tested, as well as bay control systems with six voltage inputs – without an additional voltage amplifier. Red LEDs indicate the status of the voltage and current amplifier (continuous light for active output and flashing light for output overload). They are accompanied by an acoustic signal that can be switched off.

The three powerful 100W current amplifiers enable burden measurements to be taken and older protective device models to be tested. Thanks to its extremely high amplitude and phase accuracy (current and voltage), the CMC 430 is an ideal source for calibrating measuring instruments, such as energy meters, measuring transducers, PQ measuring instruments, and PMUs.

The device can be controlled using either a Windows laptop or an Android tablet PC, on which the high-performance software testing tools from OMICRON come into play: Test Universe, CMContol App or RelaySimTest.

OMICRON offers two options for transporting the CMC 430. The trolley with rucksack function is the highly portable choice. There is also a multi-functional transport case which can be used as storage for the test set and also as a work table.

The device is certified by TÜV SÜD AMERICA Inc. and meets European, North American, and international health and safety requirements.
