Used in conjunction with an external calibrated accelerometer that attaches magnetically to the breaker under test, the Circuit Breaker Analyzer app runs on a tablet or PC to identify potential mechanical failures before they happen. The tool helps customers avoid unplanned downtime and confirm arc-flash calculations based on trip times without the need to modify existing equipment or remove them from service.

The CBAnalyzer also allows the user to operate the breaker in any sequence desired, including trip, charge, or close. The vibration data created by the breaker operation is captured, displayed locally against previous tests, and analyzed via a Web-based application to identify potential problems based on vibration signature and the model of the breaker under test. Data saved to the online accounts can be used for equipment management; trending; and further analysis options, including specialized issue diagnosis.

“This new application allows you to more easily and quickly identify mechanical failures before they happen,” explains Finley Ledbetter, CEO and chief scientist of Group CBS. (Circuit Breaker Analyzer, Inc. is an affiliate company of Group CBS.) “Using this new application on Windows 7 devices, technicians can test all types and ratings of breakers, determine breaker opening and closing times, confirm arc-flash calculations and associated personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, and increase in-service testing frequency to boost uptime.”

With the CBAnalyzer Windows 7 tablet and PC application, users can compare two tests side by side to see how breaker performance has changed over time, detect bad vacuum bottles and other potential problems, print and read barcodes for asset management, and automatically record temperature settings. Other advanced features include the ability to view Fourier transforms of vibration signatures and viewing the vector signature of the vibration test.
