PORTABLE MINI MATERIAL TESTER The highly visible EL display and easy-to-use menus in eight languages make programming simple. Force and displacement values are displayed plus user-selectable data. The auto start displacement feature enables users to apply a force value and read displacement or stop at a displacement value and read force. The control knob moves the gauge 18mm per turn for precise control in tests which require very small movement. The mounting plate may be reversed or removed to allow testing of oversize objects and extend into recesses. Peak data can be saved to gauge memory and exported to USB flash drives or continuous data can be saved to USB flash drives in CSV format. The included Force Recorder software to captures force and displacement data and creates force vs. displacement profile graphs. Other features include: • Force Units: lbf, kgf, N (selectable) • Displacement Units: inch, mm (selectable) • Color-coded LED indicators and output signal for Go/No Go force testing • USB (virtual COMport), RS-232C, Digimatic and Analog outputs • Internal Ni-MH batteries or AC adapter • Overload alarm and output signal • Tester includes Force Recorder Pro software, cable, full set of attachments, AC adapter/ charger, and calibration cert traceable to NIST IMADA, INC. (847) 562-0834 IMADA@IMADA.COM WWW.IMADA.COM Phasor MeasureMent unit Today’s smart grid relies on equipment called phasor measurement units (PMUs) to deliver real-time, mission critical data on the voltage, current, frequency, and phase within the distribution smart grid. For the Smart Grid system to work reliably, PMUs must be calibrated so that their data is consistent, accurate, and credible, and so that models from different manufacturers are inter-operable. NIST, The National Institute of Standards and Technology, felt so strongly about the need for a PMU calibrator that it awarded Fluke a development grant in 2010 to get the project underway. The resulting Fluke Calibration 6135A/PMUCAL Phasor Measurement Unit Calibration System is the only automated and traceable PMU calibration system available today. It fills an essential need for PMU designers and manufacturers, as well national metrology institutes, third party calibration houses, and electrical utilities. The 6135A/PMUCAL is an integrated system of six components that completes the approximately 600 tests that certify a PMU configuration meets the latest performance standards of the IEEE Standard for Synchrophasor Measurements for Power Systems (IEEE C37.118.1:2011 and IEEE C37.242). The system completes the tests in 6 to 12 hours, versus two-to-six weeks with manual test methods. And because it’s an automated system, even non-experts can start using it quickly to perform a complete complement of required tests. The system, which is mounted in a 19-inch rack with an integrated test connection panel, includes a server PC, GPS receiver, system timing unit, and three-phase 6135A Electrical Power Standard. It also includes calibration software that allows users to create and store personality profiles for the PMUs tested frequently, as well as run full certification tests and a wide range of automated and interactive tests. The test system architecture allows a user-provided client PC to access the test system over the Internet from anywhere in the world. System accuracy yields a test accuracy ratio of 10:1 against the 118.1 PMU specifications. Fluke Calibration (877) 355-3225 www.FlukeCal.Com/6135a SPC Software OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) charts are among new features in the justreleased version 8.3 of Hertzler Systems’ GainSeeker® Suite SPC software. OEE helps manufacturers learn how well their assets are being used to produce quality products, and to determine if more can be produced during scheduled production times. It can also help manufacturers spot problem areas and times. Version 8.3 also includes new scrap costing features and the Inspection Editor, which can help customers easily create inspection processes. These processes can be run on a standard computer or a mobile device, such as an iPad that has the downloadable GainSeeker Collect app. Hertzler | (800) 958-2809 | www.Hertzler.com Condition Monitoring SySteM SPECTRO Analytical Instruments has introduced a condition monitoring system based on its SPECTRO GENESIS inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES). The GENESIS system swiftly, accurately, and cost-effectively assesses component wear trends by analyzing lubricating oils for the presence of metals and contaminants that may accelerate wear. This early detection allows users to prevent equipment failures and helps optimize maintenance programs. Using the latest detector technology, the system’s fullspectrum analysis covers the entire elemental range needed for additive, wear, and trace analysis of lubricating oils. In particular, it offers increased sensitivity for critical light elements such as Na, Mg, Al, and Si, while offering high sensitivity for wear and trace elements. It also provides the speed of fully simultaneous analysis, achieving rapid sample cycle times of 90 seconds or less— independent of how many elements must be analyzed.
