CIBANO 500 The future of circuit breaker testing

Electrical Review Logo

All in one

OMICRON’s CIBANO 500 is the first 3-in-1 test system to combine a precise micro-ohmmeter, a multi-channel timing analyzer, and a powerful coil and motor supply in a single, lightweight device (20 kg / 44.1 lbs). This enables all standard tests to be carried out on all types of circuit breakers, either with power supplied by the station battery or by CIBANO 500.

Software-supported testing

CIBANO 500 is controlled via OMICRON’s proven Primary Test Manager (PTM) software. The PTM actively guides the user through the entire testing process. Once testing is complete, the user is promptly provided with a clearly structured test report, which combines all results in a single document, displayed as either a diagram or a table.


Innovative accessories: less wiring effort, more tests

Together with CIBANO 500, the CB MC2 contact module provides the user with a modular and unique connection concept. One or more modules can be directly attached to the interrupter units and connected to CIBANO 500. As a result, there is no need to rewire between tests increasing the safety factors. In addition, the CB MC2 enables dynamic contact resistance testing to detect signs of wear and tear on the main and arcing contacts. All tests can be carried out with the circuit breaker grounded on both sides.

The CB TN3 transducer node allows you to carry out circuit breaker motion analysis. Together with CIBANO 500 and a motion sensor, it checks the entire switch mechanism and the mechanical links during the opening and closing process.

All measured data is transmitted digitally and therefore without interference, from the accessory devices to CIBANO 500.
