Megger recently returned from the EASA (Electrical Apparatus Service Association) show in Boston, MA. EASA’s goal is to provide members with a means of keeping up to date on materials, equipment, and state-of-the-art technology- and the show did just that. Most of the interest at the Megger booth was in insulation and DLRO testers used for motor testing. The 15kV insulation resistance tester was popular amongst those testing large motors because of its ability to measure motors and generators above 34,500 V and equipment rated above 35 kV.
Megger recently supplied Mr. T Spooling with a CFL535G TDR. This handheld time domain reflectometer easily locates fault on mixed pair metallic cables. The CFL535G can test the capabilities of connections and locate faults for up to 12 miles.
Jeff Jowett, Megger’s senior applications engineer, is quoted in the May article “Cool Tools: Using Electrical Testers Safely” for Electrical Contractor Magazine.
Megger recently donated equipment to GateWay Community College in Phoenix, AZ.The college will be using the hand tachometers in the Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Facilities program.
Wind turbines are increasingly becoming an important source of renewable energy and are being used by several countries as a way to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels.
Megger raised close to $4,000 for Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation on Saturday, January 25 at its 13th annual Megger Distributor Golf Event. The outing, which took place at the Lakes of Ahawatukee Golf Course in Phoenix, Arizona, is held each year in honor of 17 year old cancer graduate, Tyler Danner.
Megger benefits strategically from customer input, and customers enjoy the feedback when we incorporate their ideas into new models or revisions of standard models. So keep it coming!
SS Solutions, one of Megger’s Authorized Stocking Distributors, recently attended the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers show in Scottsdale, Arizona. Charlie Pehl and Chelsea Scruggs of SS Solutions were on hand to discuss the latest trends and technology to help educate the engineers on the best products for their needs. Popular at the table was Megger’s new CFL535G, a dual channel, high resolution, compact Time Domain Reflectometer with a color screen for locating faults on paired metallic cables.
Time Domain Reflectometers (TDRs) can actually pinpoint the location of faults on cables, and are available in convenient handheld models. There are two principle considerations that affect their application and should be accounted for prior to purchase:
John Bowman of Wilmington Instruments, a Megger Stocking Distributor, and Mike Palmer of Megger partnered to deliver a hands-on multimeter training class for member’s of ISA with a focus on electrical measurement safety. ISA, the International Automation Society, is an organization of engineers, technicians, and others who work in the field of instrumentation, measurement, and control of industrial processes. The attendees were appreciative and the event in southern California was well received by all that participated. Additional training programs will be delivered throughout 2014.
