User Manual – Outlet Test System (OTS)

The Ampcontrol Outlet Test System (OTS) provides a fully automated outlet testing facility. The OTS completely eliminates paper-based record keeping by concurrently updating a historical database with the latest test data.

The OTS is comprised of an OTS module, embedded within the outlet electrics, and an OTS Comms Module, mounted on the door to provide Bluetooth connectivity to the outlet tester.
All tests are initiated wirelessly via the OTS Application Software, which is installed on compatible Bluetooth enabled devices. Each outlet is able to be individually targeted.

All local test records are managed within the OTS Application Software until the tablet performs an authorised sync with the AWARE cloud storage. When this occurs all local test reports are uploaded to the cloud, and then all Assets and Users are refreshed for selected site. All OTS test records can be accessed by anyone with internet access and authorisation (user account).

User Manual – Outlet Testing System – Earth Leakage (OTS-EL)

The Ampcontrol Outlet Test System – Earth Leakage (OTS-EL) provides a fully automated outlet earth leakage testing facility. The OTS-EL completely eliminates paper-based record keeping by concurrently updating a historical database with the latest test data.

The OTS-EL is comprised of an OTS-EL module, embedded within the outlet electrics, and an OTS Comms Module, mounted on the door to provide Bluetooth connectivity to the outlet tester.

Product Update – ELD V3 and ELV V2 Application Note

Ampcontrol has recently been made aware of a condition that causes the ELD V3 and ELV V2 relays to power up into a tripped state. The trip is related to the internal charge of the super-capacitor. The issue may cause delayed power up of equipment as a reset will be required if a trip occurs.

The cause of this trip is not a safety concern nor will it pose any risks to operations experiencing this condition. The trip was detected during the commissioning stage where the equipment was undergoing repetitive power cycles.

Product Update – ECM3 Application Note

If your installation is experiencing nuisance tripping due to DC offset sources, and you are not required to use Earth Continuity Protection for touch potential safety, then the following application note may be a suitable solution. The ECM3 Earth Continuity Relay utilises a DC sense signal to determine the Pilot Series and Shunt Resistance. In some applications where the relay is exposed to DC offset sources (i.e. when exposed to a cathodically protected wharf or pontoon to fight against corrosion), the applied DC source can interfere with the relay’s sensing ability.

Case Study – UK Turnkey Project: 11kV/415V Robust Distribution Units

Ampcontrol was selected to design, manufacture, install and commission two electrical distribution units for a major client in the gypsum mining industry in the UK, both of which were equipped with Ampcontrol’s AWT protection relays for sensitive earth fault detection and protection.

Case Study – UK Tideway Central

FLO JV was selected to build the central section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel in London, UK, and contracted Ampcontrol to assist with the provision of emergency back-up power.

Real Time Gas Monitoring System – Gasguard 2

From complete mine wide monitoring and control via fibre or copper to machine gas monitoring systems, Gasguard 2 suits a wide range of applications.

Gasguard 2 comprises of an Intrinsically Safe (Ex ia I Ma) display module which allows for the display and transmission of detector data and system information. Housed within an IP66 rated stainless steel enclosure the display module is available in three variants: a glanded display supporting both digital and analogue, or pluggable versions supporting either digital or analogue.

Technical Data Sheet – Gasguard 2 Monitoring Solution

The Gasguard 2 (GG2) monitoring solution comprises an intrinsically safe GG2 Display Module which allows for the display and transmission of sensor data and system information. The Display Module interfaces to a range of GG2 Detectors for monitoring the atmospheric concentration of the target gas. Ampcontrol supplies a range of accessories for installing, operating and configuring the GG2 Detectors.

Technical Data Sheet – Gasguard 2 Non-dispersive Infra-red Detectors CH4 CO2

The Non-dispersive Infrared (NDIR) CH4 and CO2 models of the GG2 Detector are intrinsically safe sensors for monitoring the atmospheric concentration of Methane (CH4) or Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas. The stainless steel housing is robust, corrosion resistant and fit for purpose. Power and communications is facilitated through the low profile connector, allowing for quick plug and play connections to compatible models, such as the GG2 Display.
