Use Remote Measurements and Increase Safety for Dangerous Equipment

Take readings quicker and solve problems faster with simultaneous, recordable, remote measurements. This video shows how to: take remote measurements away from dangerous equipment(60ft away) take multiple readings at the same time record those readings without writing them down see live measurements from multiple modules simultaneously on one screen measure AC voltage, AC current and temperature This is a video that monitors an injection molding machine for quality issues on one of the heating bands while in…

How to Take Multiple Electrical Measurements Remotely

How to Monitor an Electrical Panel without using PPE This video shows how to: take measurements remotely away from dangerous equipment(60ft away) take multiple readings at the same time record those readings without writing them down see live measurements from multiple modules simultaneously on one screen measure AC voltage, AC current and temperature This is a video that monitors an electrical panel for a Chiller. Normally we would use a power quality analyzer and proper PPE protection…

What is Traceability?

Traceability can be defined as an unbroken record of documentation (e.g., “documentation traceability”) or an unbroken chain of measurements and associated uncertainties (e.g., “metrological traceability”). When we use the word “traceability” in this paper, we will always mean “metrological traceability.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology maintains the U.S. national standards for temperature. In other countries, similar national standards laboratories perform the same function. The readings of a thermometer  like a

10 Dumb Things Smart People Do When Testing Electricity

Anyone who makes their living by working with electricity quickly develops a healthy respect for anything with even a remote chance of being “live.” Yet the pressures of getting a job done on time or getting a mission-critical piece of equipment back on line can result in carelessness and uncharacteristic mistakes by even the most seasoned electrician. The list below was developed as…

How To Prevent Electrical Shocks Through Insulation Resistance Testing

Why Have an Insulation Resistance Testing Program? A regular program of insulation resistance testing is strongly recommended to: Prevent electrical shocks Assure safety of personnel Reduce or eliminate down time Detect deterioration of insulation Evaluate the quality of repairs This type of program is helpful in identifying when to schedule repair work such as: vacuum cleaning, steam cleaning, drying and rewinding. Quality…
