Datasheet

The Megger FRAX150 Sweep Frequency Response Analyzer (SFRA) detects potential mechanical and electrical problems that other methods are unable to detect. Major utilities and service companies have used the FRA method for more than a decade. The measurement is easy to perform and will capture a unique “fingerprint” of the transformer. The measurement is compared to a reference “fingerprint” and gives a direct answer if the mechanical parts of the transformer are unchanged or not. Deviations indicate geometrical and/or electrical changes within the transformer.
 

Features:

  • Highest dynamic range and accuracy in the industry
  • Built-in PC with powerful backlit screen for use in direct sunlight
  • Highest possible repeatability by using reliable cable practice and high-performance instrumentation
  • Fulfills all international standards for SFRA measurements
  • Advanced analysis and decision support built into the software
  • Imports data from other FRA test sets

 

FRAX150 detects problems such as:
 
  • Winding deformations and displacements
  • Shorted turns and open windings
  • Loosened clamping structures
  • Broken clamping structures
  • Core connection problems
  • Partial winding collapse
  • Faulty core grounds
  • Core movements
