3-channel generator and tester EPG7

The EPG7 is a compact generator of AC or DC three-phase currents in values up to the tens of mA primarily designed for testing of the correct functions of the measurements and protections of RTU units or other devices, where are the parameters of EPG7 suitable. The device can also be used as a simple process calibrator - the output current corresponds within the declared accuracy to the value shown on the display.

When fitted with a voltage card, the device can generate three-phase AC or DC voltage up to units of volts. There are 4 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs which can be used in advanced functions for testing of the protections.

All versions of the device are fitted with a 4-line LCD display with a rotary knob with an integrated control button. A USB interface is used for communication with the user SW. The analogue outputs, digital outputs, digital inputs and USB interface are galvanically isolated.

The device can be powered by 4 x AA NiMh batteries or from an external adapter. When powered from batteries, the operating time is approximately 2 hours (permanent generation of 45 mA AC currents on all outputs). The discharging of batteries is indicated by the LED diode. The internal fast charger has LED signaling of the charging process.
