elcome dear friends of protection, control and electrical engineering, there is news for all KoCoS users among us, there is another update for ARTES 5 available. With the addition of the PIC monitor, savings in the test steps are made possible, the manufacturer informations are:
With a further update from ARTES 5, the PIC monitor is now also available. The discrimination tresholds and the disengaging ratio of protective relays can be determined with the PIC monitor, and the PIC monitor also features a newly designed program interface.
To simplify the parameterization of the test sequence, it now graphically shows the ramp sequences dynamically, even before the start of the test. In addition, the PIC monitor with new functions offers the possibility of determining the triggering times. For this purpose, trigger criteria and time references can be parameterized for each pickup threshold. This saves further test steps.
The manufacturer is now making an update of the ARTES 5 software with the new PIC monitor available here. An update of the ARTES 460 II is necessary to use the PIC monitor. The necessary firmware is also available for download from the manufacturer (here).
