Vanguard PCI600 600A Primary Injection Test Set

The VIC Model PCI-600 is a programmable, high-current source that is designed specifically for utility-substation applications. This alternating current(ac) test device is used primarily for injection testing of protective relays.

Brand: VanguardVanguard


  • The PCI600 can also be used for testing thermal, magnetic and solid-state motor-protection relays and molded-case circuit breakers.
  • The PCI-600 is versatile and can also be used in many other applications that require a high-current source.
  • Results displayed on a 4-line by 20-character backlit LCD
  • Test currents from 10 to 600 amperes
  • Also has an external-current input (0-10 A)
  • The PCI-600’s built-in timer can test the timedelay
    characteristics of protection relays and
    molded-case circuit-breakers. Once the test
    is initiated, the current source and the timer
    are automatically turned on at the next zerocrossing
    point of the AC. The timer stops when
    the PCI-600 input detects a change in the dry
    contact or voltage input, or detects the removal
    of the test current.
  • The test results are then displayed in milli-seconds and fractions of a cycle(s) on the unit’s back-lit LCD screen (20 characters by 4 lines).
  • Test currents, ranging from 10 to 600 amperes,
    can be set by using the rotary dial knob on the
    control panel. The test current is then measured,
    and the results are displayed on the LCD screen.
    When the PCI-600 is used as a current source,
    the current-on time (duration of current flow) is
    displayed on the LCD screen.

     output @ 240 Vac time
    9..5 Vac @ 100A 1 hour
    9.4 Vac @ 200A 5 minutes
    9.0 Vac @ 300A 2 minutes
    8.2 Vac @ 400A 1 minute

    7.0 Vac @ 600A 20 seconds

    External Current Input
    The PCI-600 also has an external-current input
    (0 – 10 A). Both the internal current source
    amplitude and the external current source measurement
    readings can be viewed at the same time.
