There are many pieces of equipment and track tools that are used every day by people in the engineering, electric and power industry. Without this equipment their jobs would take a lot longer to complete and problems would last days. Below is a brief introduction to some of the tools and processes people in the industry work with on a daily basis.
Fluke Multimeters
Fluke multimeters are the leading brand of digital multimeters that log industrial problems so that complex: electronic, plant automation, power distribution and electro-mechanical equipment problems can be solved. They are used by electricians and people in the technical sector to log data and review it on screen via a graph. This saves time and means problems can be solved more efficiently. The complex technology of these fluke multimeters means that they can be left to watch systems and processes unattended, enabling a person to go elsewhere and solve other problems.
There are various models of these multimeters as they are revised and updated regularly to produce the highest standard of equipment. The Fluke 289 is one of the latest models. This model has expanded memory – enabling the unattended monitoring of signals. It features TrendCapture so that users can review data graphically without the need of a computer. It can also store up to over 10,000 readings over time. One of the features that has improved the usability of this product is the addition of an ‘information’ button; this activates on screen help messages when pushed.
Megger Testers
Megger testers are used to test the insulation properties of things such as electric wiring, motor windings and high power antenna mounts. A megger tester is used to see if it is shorted to ground at all by checking the resistance in voltages. There are various megger testers on the market, the MFT1500 series are combined, loop and RCD testers and are a popular choice.
Instrument Calibration
Instrument calibration involves adjusting the output or indication on a measurement instrument so that it meets the value of the applied standard – with as much accuracy as possible. Many instruments cannot be adjusted to be precisely correct. For example, a thermometer can be calibrated so that the error of indication can be found to ensure it shows the accurate temperature in Celsius at various points on its scale.
For more information on any of these products or industrial equipment it is best to find a stockist near you or search online. Researching various companies will broaden your knowledge on the topic and enable you to achieve the best purchase price.
