Courtesy: Phoenix ContactPhoenix Contact’s Fast and Modular Energy (FAME) 3 Test System is designed to complete complex switching operations in a single procedure. The touch-safe testing system features ring-lug terminal connections and incorporates a pluggable system for testing and system maintenance for low- and medium-voltage switchgear. The system consists of two primary components: a base test unit with ring-lug terminal points, and a removable handle that facilitates test operation. Circuits are wired to the back of the base unit, inside the cabinet. The modular base unit, which accommodates between four and 25 positions, can be configured for 10- or 14-positions and the base unit matches existing door cutouts, which makes it useful for retrofit applications. The handle, with safety test leads and adapters, plugs into the base test unit for effective protection, metering, and control of hazardous circuits.
