Test & Measurement
November 8, 2017 — The Bosch Blaze GLM 42 laser measure offers users full-colour backlit display with high resolution “even in dark areas or in low-light/no-light conditions.” The product provides default real-time length, area, volume and indirect measuring functions that the company says are simple to navigate thanks to a display guide that walks the user through each measurement function.
October 27, 2017 — Dent Instruments has replaced its PowerScout 24 submeter with two new multi-circuit power submeters: PowerScout 12 HD and PowerScout 48 HD. The two models monitor voltage, current, power, energy and other electrical parameters on multiple single and/or three-phase systems. The products come equipped with a USB port for quick setup and an optional local display for diagnostics and reading real-time values. Standard Serial RS-485 and Ethernet communications are also available in the same unit. Using the USB port and ViewPoint HD software, users can toggle between communication methods, protocols and other parameters in the field. Both meters meet ANSI C-12.20-2010 Class 0.2 revenue grade standards for accuracy.
September 26, 2017 — Extech has launched the Extech MG320, a CAT IV 20GΩ/1000V insulation tester with integrated True RMS multimeter. Extech says the product, which is Category IV 600V overvoltage safety-rated, is “ideal” for industrial predictive maintenance programs that include routine insulation testing of electrical and electronic equipment and cables.
September 25, 2017 - Fluke says its new T6 electrical testers with FieldSense technology can simultaneously measure (not just detect) voltage and current.
June 1, 2017 - Extech Instruments has launched the MA3110 True RMS AC Flex clamp meter. The product offers a measurement range up to 3000A AC along with True RMS accuracy, the company claims.
February 14, 2017 - Megger has enhanced its series of insulation and continuity testers, minimizing the risk of accidental damage to equipment under test. Designed specifically for the telecommunications and cable testing markets, the MIT480/2 series features a three-wire connection for A, B and E (tip, ring and ground), eliminating the need to connect and disconnect leads to carry out the full range of testing on a cable pair, according to Megger.
December 9, 2016 - Megger now offers an insulation and continuity tester that is rated at 2.5 kV. The MIT2500 offers accurate measurements up to 200 GΩ, the company notes.
November 29, 2016 - The Reed R2050 thermal imaging camera displays thermal and visual images on a 2.8-in. LCD display and photos are saved on the included micro SD card.
November 29, 2016 - Ideal Networks has launched the new Optical Certifier I (OC I) for multi-mode and single mode fiber cabling, delivering automated loss, length and polarity certification of fibre links.
November 24, 2016 - Megger now offers duplex connector test leads for its DLRO10 series of digital low resistance ohmmeters. This new four-terminal, 10A test lead system provides users with all of the test lead terminations and lead lengths required for use in a variety of low resistance testing applications.
November 14, 2016 - Southwire says it has nine new meters to specifically help residential and commercial electricians. Included in this product line are several meters which feature Bluetooth technology, allowing users to save and send readings using Southwire’s MApp mobile app.
October 21, 2016 - Klein Tools says it has introduced a multi-function 12:1 dual-laser infrared thermometer (IR5) at an opening price point for professional-grade IR thermometers. The IR5 features dual-lasers that use a tight 12:1 distance-to-spot ratio for measuring of temperatures between -22°F and 752°F.
