The Megger ODEN AT/3X is a powerful test system designed for primary injection testing of protective relay equipment and circuit breakers. It is also used to test the turns ratio of current transformers and for other applications that require high variable currents.

The system consists of a control unit together with one, two or three current units. There are three versions of the current unit: S, X and H. The S and X current units are identical except that the X unit has an additional 30/60 V output. The H unit is rated for even higher current. This makes it possible to configure an ODEN AT system in a suitable way. All parts are portable, and ODEN AT can be quickly assembled and connected.

The control unit has many advanced features – a powerful measurement section for example, that can display turns ratio as well as time, voltage and current. A second measurement channel can be used to measure an additional current or voltage. Current transformer turns ratio, impedance, resistance, power, power factor (cos φ) and phase angle are calculated and shown in the display.

Current and voltage can be presented as percentages of nominal value. The fast-acting hold function freezes short duration readings on the digital display when the voltage or contact signal arrives at the stop input, the object under test interrupts the current or injection is stopped.

Megger ODEN AT/3X Features:

  • Most Advanced Primary Current Injection Test System to simplify all types of switchgear and CT commissioning, ground grid, circuit breaker testing and more
  • Modular design to permit optimal user configuration of output current vs. unit size
  • Compact transport cart facilitates portability into switchgear rooms with limited space
  • Unique I/30 function allows the current to be pre-set using low current to prevent test sample heating, thus eliminating corruption of test result


System designation

An ODEN AT-system consists of a control unit and one, two or three current units. There are three different versions of the current units: S-unit (standard), X-unit (extra 30/60 V outlet) and H-unit (high current). The system designation indicates the number and version of current units included.


The instrument is intended for use in high-voltage substations and industrial environments.

Mains voltage 240 / 400 V AC, 50 / 60 Hz 480 V AC / 60 Hz
Mains inlet IEC 60309-2, 63 A
Input current Output current x open circuit voltage / input voltage

The output transformer has a built-in thermal cut-out, and the primary side is protected by a miniature circuit breaker.
