MMLB 01 Multi-finger test plug
The MMLG cover, when in place, provides protection from electric shock hazards. Access to internal circuits for testing purposes can be gained by removing the front cover. A metallic probe secured to the inside face of the MMLG 01 cover is automatically withdrawn when the cover is removed, thus interrupting the circuit between terminals 13 and 14. By routing the main DC auxiliary supply to the protection scheme or relay through this circuit, the removal of the test block cover will prevent inadvertent tripping of the protection during the ensuing tests.
This link is not provided on the MMLG 02 because the contacts between terminals 13 and 14 are normally closed.
Note: These two terminals on MMLG 01/02 must not be used for CT connections since this will create a safety hazard. The reason for this is that the associated MMLB 01 test plug contact finger is shorter than the others. This would result in an open circuit path on the MMLG 02. Removal of the cover also reveals an orange coloured strip on the block front plate which gives a clear visual indication that the scheme is out of service.
Connections to other equipment (e.g. CTs, VTs and DC supplies) should be made to odd numbered terminals on the test block. This ensures that when the test plug MMLB is used, the sockets in the white half of the plug are the isolated relay circuits while the sockets in the orange half are connected to the potentially live supplies.
MMLB 01 test plug:
The test plug carries 28 x 4mm sockets. Each socket is identified by a number which corresponds to the numbered case terminal to which the socket is connected when the plug is inserted.
The test plug inserts securely into test sockets of the MMLG test block and can be retained by two knurled screws. Each of the 28 test sockets of the MMLB test plug accepts a test cable with 4mm retractable shrouded plugs.
Accessories provided with each MMLB 01 test plug:
6 shorting plug links, each comprising of two 4 mm stackable plugs with retractable shrouds joined by 150 mm cable.
