Tired of time-consuming rewiring of your test benches?

All the major mains sockets and grid systems worldwide at your fingertips!

Sometimes it's the simple ideas that bring real benefits to daily work! Testing of electrical equipment that is sold internationally requires on the one hand all the abilities of a programmable grid simulator. On the other hand, the corresponding country-specific mains plugs should be available in an uncomplicated way, ideally by using the original plugs straight away without any time-consuming rewiring. So why not combine the two domains to become a test system to which literally any major connector system can be easily plugged in?

Insert your device under test (DUT) into the appropriate plug-in system and activate the selected socket by simply pressing the selector button! That’s it! The associated specific voltage and frequency system is already stored and is switched automatically to the socket.

At the heart of such a versatile REGATRON turnkey test system for 1 - 3-phase electrical equipment is the well-known and successful grid simulator TC.ACS, which provides "power in abundance" with its peak output of 30 or 50 kVA. In addition, the system contains quite a number of ready-made sockets from the major countries. The almost unlimited programmability of all TC.ACS functions makes it possible to call up any country-specific grid conditions at the press of a button!

The main application area includes the following use cases:

  • Testing of on-board chargers (OBC) for vehicles according to the globally applicable standards Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP)
  • Testing of the energy consumption of vehicles according to country-specific guidelines
  • Testing the energy behaviour of vehicles at low wintertime temperatures
  • Connection of the above test set-up to an already existing test automation level for fully automated procedures by means of the new REGATRON TC.ACS.CANmp interface
  • Country-specific tests of electrical appliances manufactured in different country versions
