The STS family includes 4 models: STS 5000, STS 4000, STS 3000 light and TDX 5000. STS 4000 is not equipped with: AC and DC high current outputs.TDX 5000 is not equipped with: AC and DC high current outputs, AC and DC high and low voltage outputs, and current and voltage meters. STS 5000 and STS 4000 can be connected to the Tan Delta module TD 5000; STS 5000 and 4000 can be also connected to the very high current module BUX 5000, BUX 3000 and BUX 2000. STS 5000 includes a six-outputs generator: high AC current; low AC current; high DC current; low DC current; high AC voltage; low AC voltage.
In the local control mode, the selected output is adjustable and metered on the large, graphic LCD display. With the control knob and the LCD display, it is possible to enter the MENU mode, that allows to set many functions, that make STS 5000 a very powerful testing device, with manual and automatic testing capabilities, and with the possibility to transfer test results to a PC via
ETHERNET or Pen Drive. The TDMS software, which comes with the test set, allows to download, display and analyse test results obtained in local mode. Remote maintenance and diagnostic of the instrument is available via Ethernet. TDMS operates with all Windows® versions.
The ease of opera on has been the fi rst goal of STS 5000. This is why the LCD display is so large and the dialogue in MENU mode is made easy. Connection diagrams are available accordingly with the test window. STS 5000 includes three measurement inputs:
- DC voltage (10 V DC).
- AC voltage:
- High range (300 V AC) – .. Low range (3 V AC)
- Current (10 A AC or DC).
All these inputs are independent among them and allow the measurement of CT or VT outputs or of another source.
