Four-module test set
Use the F8200 Power System Simulator for testing single-phase conventional schemes, digital protection systems, and more. This four-module F8000-series instrument is available in four standard configurations of HVA Current, HVA Voltage, and Low-Density Logic I/O modules.
Whether used in the field or in a laboratory, F8000-series Power System Simulators offer numerous configurations that provide a range of possible solutions to your specific test requirements. The F8000 platform lets you choose the capabilities and functionality that make sense for the protection applications you test.
With a modular platform and state-of-the-art digital componentry, F8000-series Power System Simulators provide modern performance in versatile designs that scale to the meet the demands of any conventional or digital test scenario.
Each F8000-series instrument configuration can perform analog and digital tests and will work seamlessly with existing Protection Suite™ and Doble RTS™ test procedures. Every configuration includes a powerful Command Module that provides central communication and control features plus connectivity for a variety of test applications including connecting to other F8000 instruments and IEC 61850-compliant digital testing.
A 90 W Battery Simulator and a rugged protective bumper are also included. F8000-series instruments are easily portable using the provided shoulder strap and can be mounted in 19” racks with available mounting hardware.
The versatility of F8000-series Power System Simulators let you easily scale your test capabilities to the requirements presented by your protection systems. Simply connect an F8200 to other F8000-series instruments to expand your use case possibilities.
Features & Benefits
The interface for central communication and control of F8000-series Power System Simulators
The Command Module is embedded with each F8000-series chassis and controls all instrument operations from Protection Suite and RTS software. Communication and synchronization functions are hosted, and instrument status is displayed. Interconnections to other F8000-series instruments are supported and IEC 61850 standard-based protection scheme testing options are available.
Low-Density Logic I/O Module
Four pairs of programmable inputs and outputs with intelligent LED ports
The Low-Density Logic I/O Module provides four pairs of programmable input/output ports with LED light rings that indicate port assignments and changes in monitored voltage, current and contact states.
Use Protection Suite and RTS software to set monitoring parameters in the Low-Density Logic I/O Module and to assign colors to the LEDs.
An optional DC Meter upgrade is available for testing transducers and Class 2 meters.
HVA Voltage Module
Two-channel phase voltage with intelligent LED ports
The HVA Voltage Module provides two 150 V sources at 150 VA or one 300 V source at 300 VA with both channels connected in parallel. The available Convertible Mode option converts outputs of the HVA Voltage Module into high-VA/low-range current sources.
Use Protection Suite and RTS software to set source configurations in the HVA Voltage Module and to assign colors to the LEDs. The LED light rings indicate placements of test lead connections for voltage sources and will alert if source issues are detected.
HVA Current Module
Two-channel phase current with intelligent LED ports
The HVA Current Module provides two 25 A sources at 150 VA each. When both sources are connected in parallel, 50 A at 300 VA continuous power is produced. Transient mode extends power and range up to 90 A at 300 VA for 30 seconds. DC output is 50 A.
Use Protection Suite and RTS software to set source configurations in the HVA Current Module and to assign colors to the LEDs. The LED light rings indicate the placements of test lead connections for current sources and will alert if source issues are detected.
Each F8000-series chassis includes a battery simulator with a power range of 6 to 300 volts at 90 watts.
The F8200 chassis includes the Command Module and accepts four F8000 series modules. The compact frame houses an instrument that is easily portable and well-suited to testing single-phase schemes or digital protection applications.

Synchronizes Doble F8000-series power system simulators to satellite time signals for end-to-end testing
Use the F8895 Satellite Receiver Antenna for GPS time synchronized tests that verify communication integrity between relays at different ends of a protected element. The F8895 connects via TNC cable to the GPS port on the Command Module of your F8000-series Power System Simulator to enable common time signal sharing with other F8895-connected F8200/F8300 users in your end-to-end test scheme.
To demonstrate the harmony and interoperability among our devices and software, Mario Pérez, Senior Technical Application Engineer, presents an end-to-end test using Protection Suite™ and Doble RTS™ test procedures with GPS satellite synchronization on F8300 and MTS-5100 devices.
