Case Study – Underground Commissioning in Turkey

Ampcontrol’s customer in Turkey specialises in the mining, processing, distribution and importation of hard coal. Working in partnership with the customer, Ampcontrol carried out the
commissioning of a AW2000/E7/B 1100/500V circuit breaker.

Withdrawal Notice – ISUPS 300Whr V1

The ISUPS 300Whr V1 was made obsolete in 2017 and has not been manufactured since. We have continued to support this product, however, critical components required for repair are no longer readily available and have increase repair turn around times.

Withdrawal Notice – IPC Product Family

During the lifespan of the IPC Integrated Protection Relay, several key materials that are required to manufacture the products within the IPC family have been made obsolete by their respective manufacturers. As a result, Ampcontrol has been forced to withdraw the IPC range.

Technical Data Sheet – iMAC Digital Output Module D04

The iMAC DO4 module is an Intrinsically Safe (Ex ia I Ma) Digital Output module that provides four (4) general purpose relay outputs.

The relay outputs can be operated directly from the iMAC controller or by programming an input module such as a DI4 module to the same address as the DO4 module, in which case each relay output will respond to the respective input of the DI4 input module. Multiple DO4 modules can be programmed to the same address, allowing distributed simultaneous control in multiple locations.

Application Note – Earth Leakage Relay Power Up Trip

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.

Technical Data Sheet – Gasguard 2 Electrochemical Detectors O2 & CO

The Electrochemical (EC) CO and O2 models of the GG2 Detector are intrinsically safe sensors for monitoring the atmospheric concentration of Carbon Monoxide (CO) or Oxygen (O2) 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.

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.

User Manual – Outlet Test System Dashboard

The Ampcontrol AWARE dashboard provides a cloud based IOT solution to multiple functions offered by Ampcontrol. In regards to the Ampcontrol Outlet Test System (OTS) and Outlet Test System – Earth Leakage (OTS-EL), the dashboard will provide an asset management tool, OTS testing personnel management tool and Test record management tool. The large benefits for the dashboard with regards to test report keeping is that all test reports can be accessed / viewed whenever internet access is available. The OTS completely eliminates paper-based record keeping by concurrently updating a historical database with the latest test data.
