Now Rent Summit Technology's 15k Voltage Probe Set from Protec

by Protec Tech Team August 05, 2015

Now you can connect directly to 12,500V power systems with the Summit Technology 15k Voltage Probe Set with Hot Sticks, allowing for complete analysis.

Traditionally, professionals who wished to measure 12,500 volt lines needed to locate a PT (potential transformer) and then connect to the low voltage output secondary of the PT.  The Summit Technology 15k Voltage Probe Set with Hot Sticks are capable of connecting directly to 15 kilovolts, therefore, bypassing the PT and avoiding any phase shift and linearity problems introduced by it. The probes also allow for direct connection at any point of interest whether PTs already exist or not.

Confirm the Integrity of Isolated Power Systems with the Bender LT3000

by Protec Tech Team July 16, 2015

The line isolation monitor is a critical component of an isolated power system. The line isolation monitor continuously monitors the isolated power system's impedance from all conductors to ground. Impedance includes both resistive and capacitive readings. This value is then used to calculate the Total Hazard Current (THC), which dictates what current could flow if a patient were to come in contact with a conductor to ground. The THC reading provides advanced warning of issues that are present in the system.

Analyze Common Problems in Transformers with the Doble M5400

by Protec Tech Team July 02, 2015

As transformers age their internal condition degrades, increasing the risk of failure. When a transformer is new it has sufficient electrical and mechanical strength to withstand unusual system conditions. As transformers age, their insulation strength can degrade to the point that they cannot withstand system events such as short-circuit faults or transient over-voltages.
