New TRANSIG-Monitor for ARTES 5

An update of the ARTES 5 software with the new TRANSIG-Monitor is now available.


The TRANSIG-Monitor enables the fully graphical display, analysis and output of recordings that are available in the standardized COMTRADE format. The monitor has been fundamentally revised and is now available in the new ARTES 5 software with new functions.

With a scaling function, the original recording can now be scaled fully automatically to a defined output range. The signal characteristics can now be played back immediately as a transient sequence over the test system without long detours.

A special feature is the new time window function. A freely selectable section of a recording can be filtered out and selectively output via the hardware. In addition, the new repeat function allows the signal characteristics to be played back sequentially and without gaps as often as required.

In addition to new functions, the user interface of the TRANSIG-Monitor has also been redesigned. Tests can now be performed more easily, intuitively and quickly.


Testing in IEC 61850 networks: Quick and easy with ARTES!

With ARTES test systems, testing protection relay with IEC-61850-8-1 communication has never been easier.

A very important feature of the 4th ARTES generation is its particularly powerful signal processing. The direct connection of the Ethernet interfaces to the processor enables processing in real time.

During tests in IEC-61850 networks, control signals such as excitation and tripping are distributed over the network in form of GOOSE telegrams and directly acquired by ARTES and evaluated accordingly.

An additional time synchronization with the network also offers the possibility to use the time of transmission of the signals as a reference and thus compensate the network latency.

Like all other test modules, this function is also included in the standard scope of delivery.
