Plug-in test system

Easy and safe testing

The FAME test system simplifies the regular testing of power switchgear.

Category

FAME is the innovative, modular test system for all measuring and testing tasks in network protection technology for medium- and high-voltage switching devices. You can now perform manual testing operations automatically, safely, and more quickly.

Rotate the FAME SL and FAME rack in all directions. For a more immersive experience: On desktop, scan the QR code, or using a compatible mobile device, tap 'View in my space'.

Your advantages

  • Easy and time-saving, thanks to functional grouping of switching operations
  • Maximum safety, thanks to leading and automatic transformer short circuit
  • Cost-effective, thanks to the tailored, modular design and use of standardized accessories
  • Space-saving, thanks to compact plug-in test sockets and offset test socket arrangement
  • Flexible, thanks to freedom of choice between wall or DIN rail mounting when using the standardized CLIPLINE complete system accessories
  • Safety for users, thanks to integrated touch protection
  • Clear, thanks to the large-surface marking options and easily identifiable switching states
  • Capable of 600V and 30A

The right solution to every task

Ever more interfaces and switching devices have to be tested on a regular basis. This is time-consuming and expensive. Now the FAME test system is available to help you with this additional testing without any extra cost or time. It groups together complex switching operations in the test block automatically. For you, this means the highest level of availability with maximum safety.
 

Plug-in test systems in comparison
FAME is available in five different versions. Choose the solution that is best for your area of application.

  • FAME 1
    Plug-in test system with operating plug and transformer short circuit in the plug-in test socket.
  • FAME 2
    Plug-in test system without operating plug and transformer short circuit in the test plug.
  • FAME 3 and FAME 3 SL
    Plug-in test system without operating plug and transformer short circuit in the plug-in test socket.
  • FAME RACK
    Plug-in test system without operating plug and transformer short circuit in the plug-in test socket.

Safe cable routing for plug-in test sockets

For control and operating purposes, protective devices and control devices should be accessible from the outside and are therefore mounted in the door. This is why some devices and plug-in test sockets such as FAME are mounted in the control cabinet door in protection and control engineering applications.

This additionally saves space in the control cabinet. These components can now be wired in an even easier and more flexible way with the CGS cable guiding system from Phoenix Contact.
