Portable voltagetransformer tester

At only 15 kg/33 pounds and compact in size Omicron’s VOTANO 100 is a portable voltage transformer testing device that also offers high accuracy.

The testing and calibration system measures winding resistance, short circuit impedances, the transformation ratio and the magnetic characteristic of inductive or capacitive voltage transformers in a single measuring cycle.

Together with the new VBO2 voltage booster with integrated switch box, the complete measuring results of a voltage transformer are available in less than 15 minutes as the voltage transformer needs to be wired only once, thus improving testing time and efficiency. Along with the new hardware, a new software upgrade for the VOTANO (2.00) has also been released.



Meter reports software

Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Inc. (SEL) released its ACSELERATOR Meter Reports SEL-5630 Software. This latest version includes support for dynamic viewing tools, faster database interrogation and offline demonstrations.

ACSELERATOR Meter Reports Software helps users organize, visualize and optimize energy usage, using data from SEL-734 Advanced Metering Systems, SEL-735 Power Quality and Revenue Meters and SEL751A Feeder Protection Relays. ACSELERATOR Meter Reports Software trends energy consumption data, so operators can avoid peak demand charges and optimize a schedule that moves overlapping electric processes to off-peak hours.

Additionally, the software offers tools to diagnose voltage disturbances using historical data, so the user can assess the impact and improve system operation.

The latest release of ACSELERATOR Meter Reports also is accompanied by an integrated demonstration database.

Detachable laptop for field services

Panasonic announced the world’s first fully rugged detachable laptop. The Toughbook® 20 delivers durability, reliability and performance, while adding the increased level of flexibility and functionality customers want in a single fully rugged computer. Combining the best features of a laptop and tablet, the new device is ideal for field workers who need a highly mobile computing solution and the ability to reliably capture large amounts of data. The Toughbook 20 is purpose-built for challenging environments, including field services, utilities, oil and gas, transportation and logistics and more.

Because mobile workers are charged with completing increasingly complex tasks in the field, the Toughbook 20 features a 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM vProTM processor technology, 128GB SSD, 8GB RAM and choice of Windows 10 Pro or Windows 7 Professional (available through downgrade rights from Windows 10 Pro).

It offers six usage modes, making it ideal for any situation or environment and the tablet can be detached and used by itself or flipped 180-degrees to show content in presentation mode. The Toughbook 20 is designed to meet MIL-STD-461F for electromagnetic interference and MIL-STD-810G for drop, shock, vibration, explosive atmosphere, temperature, humidity, rain and sand, as well as waterproof and dustproof ingress (IP65).

At 3.9 pounds (2.1 lbs. for the tablet only), the device is exceptionally portable.
