Saelig: Fault Tracker Detects Problems in Complicated Electrical Control Systems
The FTR-Birdie is a self-contained electrical test and fault-finding logger that records and displays all on/off voltage changes at its 16 inputs.
The input on/off status of each line is displayed by bright LED indicators and on an LCD display. The unit captures the time and date of up to 32768 line events (auto stop or overwrite) on 16 lines, which can later be replayed step-by-step for evaluation. The display shows the line states and the previous 40 changes that have occurred, so it is easy to see what preceded fault conditions and understand exactly what happened within the control system. Voltages can be monitored from 12 V to 240 VAC/DC, without any need to program, select, or configure the inputs. Applications include monitoring, logging, and fault finding for control systems, security systems, heating and ventilation systems, production machinery, lift control gear, etc.
