COMPANO 100
Primary injection, secondary injection and
basic protection test set
Multifunctional device for basic testi
Challenging commissioning and recommissioning tasks
During commissioning of protection systems there are
literally hundreds of connections that have to be verified.
Whether for primary or secondary injection, having the
right equipment and the right procedures can speed up
those tests drastically. Including the relays in some of the
wiring checks can be a very smart approach.
Maintain your mobility
COMPANO 100 is the universal and easy to use solution
for all types of basic and quick wiring and polarity checks,
burden measurements and basic protection testing.
Due to its light weight (only 10 kg / 22 lbs), small size and
rugged design it’s predestined for use in substations, railway
systems, industry or renewable energy generation facilities.

Comprehensive testing functionality
Controlled electronic outputs allow you to obtain exactly
the desired value. Even for small values the accuracy is
very high. In addition, the electronic sources can output
signals with variable frequencies and other signal forms,
automated ramps, even pulse ramps and of course pure DC.
Whether the sources are AC or DC, COMPANO 100 can run
various output signal forms. The highly flexible inputs are
configurable, for example as
>> wet or dry binary inputs,
>> AC or DC voltage inputs with different filters (fast,
accurate or frequency selective) and
Battery operated
>> current inputs using external shunts or clamps depending on the user's needs.
COMPANO 100 is mains independent due to its unique
battery operation. This enables the user to perform tests
at remote locations for several hours without the need of a
mains supply.
A high precision timer can be configured to start or stop
the measurement process based on various events.
Each function can be combined with one of the others in
any useful manner, e.g. to calculate a real power from the
output current and a voltage input, making COMPANO 100
an incredibly flexible tool even for future applications.
Polarity check signal generation
COMPANO 100 enables quick setup for wiring checks. A
special electronically generated DC free test signal allows
easy polarity checks throughout the station within minutes.

Efficient and ergonomic operation
COMPANO 100's ease of use is based on its very intuitive software. Functionality and
operation structure are developed in close co-operation with our customers.
Example: QUICK test of overcurrent protection
QUICK test setup

Set test current up to 110 A and choose
between various different trigger criteria
such as binary inputs or overload to automatically end the test.
QUICK results
2
Perform test shots at different output
values and easily assess the result and
compare it with the relay’s nominal
characteristic.
Example: Setup polarity check signals
Polarity check
1
Simply setup polarity check signals to evaluate
wiring tests within minutes. Define active- and
pause times to save power. Polarity checks are
possible for voltage and current paths.

Application modules for COMPANO 100
Modules for different applications guarantee ease of use. Most commonly used
modules can be reached by a single key press.
QUICK
General purpose module for various applications. It can output
magnitudes and measure back at the same time. It is possible to
modify the quantities generated while the outputs are active.
Functions like switching off/on triggers, switching off/on time-out
or calculating results such as real power or impedances from other
measured quantities are possible.
(Included with delivery)
FLEX
Allows programming of sequences consisting of states, ramps,
pulse ramps or combinations of them in advance and then running
them as programmed. Changes between the individual sequence
steps can be triggered from internal timers, external events such
as binary inputs or output overloads. The ability to repeat the
sequence at the end of the sequence makes it flexible, in particular
to create endless loops.
(Order No. VESM6120)
Polarity check
Allows asymmetric signal generation free from any DC component.
By using a hand held polarity checker (CPOL) it is possible to
distinguish whether the polarity is correct or not – even without a
connection back to the COMPANO 100. The signal is DC free which
for instance avoids any DC magnetization and remanence in the
core of CTs in the path.
(Order No. VESM6140)
Micro-ohm
This module allows using the COMPANO 100 as a micro-ohmmeter
for applications where there are no inductances such as CTs in the
measurement path. In this mode, special hardware is activated to
filter out system frequency noise.
