Are you an Electric Meter Technician? Do you work for a utility company or service provider? If yes, then you’re already aware of the new regulations passed by ANSI C12 that require users to use a 3-phase source when testing energy meters. In 3-phase power, one of the three phases is nearing a peak. Therefore, high-power 3-phase motors and things such as 3-phase welding have even power output. Powermetrix is an innovative power analyzer manufacturing company that engineers energy meter testing equipment for laboratory and portable field use. This equipment can perform transformer testing, revenue protection, and meter testing. Current transformer testing is an essential step in keeping our electrical power systems functioning properly. By testing, safety is ensured and homeowners can count on receiving accurate billing.
Using Powermetrix products makes it easy to perform a CT test and verify that your customers are being accurately billed. For example, it takes 1,000 watt-hours of electricity to power a 1000-watt vacuum for 1 hour. If electrical wiring or appliances are defective, utility meters aren’t working correctly or being read accurately, any and all inaccuracies will result in billing errors. These billing errors can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue loss. Luckily, PowerMaster® electrical metering equipment will meet all of your meter testing needs.
According to Powermetrix, all PowerMaster® site analyzers feature NIST traceable reference standards, so you are compliant with all regulatory meter test equipment requirements. The 3 Series is a one-of-a-kind test instrument that is highly accurate, and lightweight and easy-to-use. For more advanced metering situations, the 7 Series has the ability to upgrade its functionality, 3-phase voltage and current output, harmonic measurements, vector analysis, instrument transformer testing, and an outstanding 0.02% accuracy. By testing electrical meters before use, you avoid the risk of mixing up your connections: getting the right voltage connected with the appropriate wirings is vital and can trigger life-threatening scenarios if done incorrectly. Using this high-quality equipment will ensure accurate readings and keep everyone safe.
