Infrared thermometer for extreme heat conditions

Fluke authorised test and measurement distributor Comtest Group has announced the Fluke 572-2 high-temperature, infrared thermometer for extreme heat conditions over long distances. Applications include manufacturing, repair and maintenance of motors, pumps with data logging, electrical HVAC installation, power utility (measurement of nodes between power transmission and distribution); metals (maintenance and quality control where temperature […]

Enhanced software enables modelling devices up to 1500 A/10 kV

Agilent Technologies recently announced that its integrated circuits characterisation and analysis program (IC-CAP) software has been enhanced to provide full support for the B1505A power device analyser/curve tracer, including the instrument’s new high-power, high-current source monitor unit modules. This enhancement allows modeling engineers to measure high-power devices directly from the IC-CAP platform and execute model […]

Dual-channel digitiser with 12-bit resolution

Agilent Technologies recently introduced the U5303A, a compact dual-channel PCIe digitiser with 12-bit resolution, sampling up to 3,2 GS/s, and on-board real-time processing. It delivers unprecedented analogue fidelity, high effective number of bits and very low noise. The new digitiser offers outstanding performance in a small footprint: DC-to-1,8 GHz bandwidth, 9.1  ENOB at 100 MHz, 58 […]

Avoiding problems with car batteries

Midtronics, represented in southern Africa by Comtest Distribution, helps avoid problems with car batteries. The start-stop system used in some vehicles to reduce exhaust emissions has negative consequences, as the car battery is constantly in a discharged state due to braking energy recovery. Sulphatation occurs relatively quickly, which is an essential cause of premature failure. […]

Lightweight, rugged, easy-to-use imagers

Comtest has introduced the Fluke Ti105 and TiR105 thermal imagers, the latest addition to Fluke’s series of lightweight, rugged, and easy to use imagers. Both imagers offer the Fluke IR-Fusion technology feature, not normally found in thermal imagers in this price class. The Ti105 helps plant technicians, HVAC/R professionals, and electricians maintain and inspect electrical […]

The costs of poor power quality

Information from Fluke Productivity is the key to survival in today’s globally competitive environment. When you think about the basic inputs to production-time, labour, and materials – you can see there isn’t much room for optimisation. You have 24 hours per day, labour is costly, and you don’t have much choice in materials. Thus, every […]

How do you measure energy consumption?

Information from Fluke With power, demand… and a power quality tool: With  energy costs high, and  getting higher, many facilities are  trying to reduce their energy consumption. Most have not  previously analysed their monthly energy usage, traced it to operational components, or  broken out  the  utility fees. And  until  you  understand how you’re using energy, […]

Wireless system suite

The Comtest Group has introduced Fluke CNX wireless system: a suite of five tools that connect together wirelessly to simplify the technicians’ job. Fluke CNX Wireless System delivers real-time measurements that are remote, simultaneous and recordable. The CNX wireless multimeter serves as the hub for the system  and takes readings from four types of  wireless modules: AC […]
