Features


Light Weight Compact Design

The Model 430 UTEC Ultra-Compact Phantom Load Test Kit has a durable, high-impact polypropylene weather proof case. At a small size of 14.95 x 12.13 x 9.58 inches and 25 lbs including reference standard the 430 contains all the ability of traditional test kits and more.  The 430 is designed to withstand the rigors of everyday field use while delivering the accuracy you have come to expect from a Radian product.



Versatility

The versatile 430 can utilize the advanced measurement functions of an RD standard; or if the functionality of a legacy RM is adequate, cost savings can be realized by using an existing standard from your utility’s equipment inventory.



Flexible Design

The 430 provides support for many traditional testing methods.  It can test using the modern and fully automated RM-111 comparator.  If an RD reference standard is utilized, testing can be performed directly using the built-in comparator or via RS-232 communications and Radian’s PCSuite Software.



Overview


The Model 430 is the first Ultra-Compact Portable Phantom Load Test Kit to support both the Radian Dytronic (RD) and the installed base of Radian Metronic (RM) reference standards.  The ability to support both reference standards makes the 430 the ideal budgetary solution for on-site meter testing. Do not let its compactness fool you, the 430 has three 30 Amp current output elements for performing single phase or three phase meter testing.  Additionally, when each element is combined using the optional open link cable harness, it can source up to 90 Amps.



The new 430 manufactured by Radian further increases its value as a testing solution. Whether you are an entry or advanced user we have the ideal solution. No need to deal with multiple manufacturers including the training and compatibility problems involved, Radian provides consistent and familiar functionality across the entire metering testing spectrum.



Light Weight Compact Design

The Model 430 UTEC Ultra-Compact Phantom Load Test Kit houses three 30 Amp current sources, Current Element Routing, Current Tap Control, Fuse less Protection, Supply Voltage Selection, Power Factor Control, Test Current Adjustment and a Radian Research Energy Reference Standard inside a durable, high-impact polypropylene weather proof case. At a small size of 14.95 x 12.13 x 9.58 inches and 25 lbs including reference standard the 430 contains all the ability of the older test kits plus more.



Ease of Operation

A LED histogram is utilized to show the current output level in respect to the current tap setting.  Ranges from 80% to 120% of current tap are easily indicated and when at 100% two LED are lit for set point awareness.


A convenient on/off breaker switch is used to power the unit. No need to replace fuses if the breaker trips. The breaker will trip automatically if the current draw exceeds 5 amps providing operator safety.  If a wiring mistake is made the error can be corrected and the switch turned back on without the need to replace fuses.

Calibration is easy with access to the Reference Standard available after removing the safety cover using the three top panel access screws.

Using the supply voltage selection input, the 430 supports voltage ranging from 69 to 480 Volts AC.



Testing styles differ around the world, and the 430 allows for testing with 1, 2 or 3 elements.  Each element supports 30 Amps output and can also be paralleled. Easy setting and adjustment for the current output is coordinated using the current tap settings knob and the current output adjustment knob.
