NB: The TRAX219 has capabilities similar to those of the TRAX220, but has no touchscreen and is designed to work in conjunction with an external computer..

The Megger TRAX is defined and designed as a multi-functional transformer and substation test system and is addressing the demand for a single product/test system capable of performing multiple tests. The test system replaces numerous individual testing devices which make testing with TRAX a timesaving and cost-effective alternative to conventional measurements with separate instruments.Megger TRAX Manual Control

Optimised for transformer and general substation testing, TRAX test systems are capable of performing more than 20 different test functions including, for example, measurement of winding resistance, turns ratio, excitation current, short-circuit impedance, tan delta and capacitance, and frequency response of stray losses, as well as CT and VT testing and circuit breaker timing and motion analysis.

Each app implements a specific test function – for example, turns ratio measurement or winding resistance measurement – and automatically configures the instrument for this test. All unnecessary information is removed from the display with only information relevant to the test in hand remaining. This app-based approach makes TRAX test sets easy and intuitive to work with, and eliminates the need for extensive user training.

A variety of voltage and current levels can be generated and measured with high precision which allows the test system to be used for a wide range of applications such as ratio, excitation current, winding and contact resistance, impedance, tan delta/power factor testing and primary measurements of power system components. With its three binary inputs TRAX can also be used for various timing tests of e.g. circuit-breakers and relays.

The TRAX system comes with apps for primary injection testing of protective relay equipment and circuit breakers. Its capability also facilitates testing the turns ratio of current transformers and use in other applications that require high variable currents.

TRAX includes a phase-angle meter for electrical power systems measurements. It displays phase angle, voltage, current, frequency and timing. The phase-angle is calculated from the relationship between two power signals, which can be current, voltage or any combination.

TRAX includes timer functionality that can be used separately for various applications where accurate time measurements are needed.

TRAX includes many functions that facilitate verification of substation protection and control systems, especially during commissioning. System functionality can be verified by injecting into the primary side of the CT or VT and measuring the respective values at the secondary.
