Wireless test tool system for remote measurement

April 12th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Comtest has introduced Fluke CNX, a customisable, troubleshooting tool-set of wireless test tools that work together, recording live measurements remotely and simultaneously on a single screen. CNX Modules measure AC voltage, temperature and AC current with a standard clamp or flex clamp. Possible applications include: detection of power interruptions; single phase measurement; determining current imbalance; and measuring incoming current. A wireless multimeter displays readings from up to three wireless modules, plus the meter measurement at the same time, on the same screen, from as far as 20 m away. To get a holistic overview of the situation, readings from 10 tools measurements can be reviewed simultaneously on PC View. Users are able to mix and match the wireless-enabled modules to suit their unique measurement needs. This system can record up to 65 000 sets of min/max/avg readings in either single or multiple logging sessions. It isolates intermittent events or records signal fluctuations automatically, using the module’s log function. Measurements can be viewed in a location separate from the point of measurement, for safety purposes, as well as be viewed repeatedly from either remote locations or on-site.
