"METSyS logger Presentation"

The Right Tool for Conducting a Connected Load Study to Confirm Panel Capacity 

The METSyS Panel Capacity Analyzer (PCA) is a specially-designed instrument for measuring and recording 3- or 4-phase current to confirm the distribution panel's capacity in compliance with NFPA’s National Electrical Code (NEC) 2014 Article 220.87 and meeting the requirements for uniform load calculations in accordance with the requirements of the California Electrical Code (CEC).

The METSyS PCA packaged with POWERetc's proprietary macro-based Excel spreadsheet provides users with the capability of conducting connected load studies of various lengths to meet specific regulatory requirements. This provides a definitive and documented result enabling electrical contractors and facilities engineers to quickly obtain electrical inspection approval when adding new loads to a panel. 

The process requires both the calculation of the average current over an extended period in order to confirm that - with planned load additions - will remain less than 80% of the breaker rating(s). In addition, the standard requires that MIN and MAX currents are also determined over the sampling period.

The METSyS logger samples every cycle using an 8-cycle "window" and calculates the average value of the 8-cycles. These readings are accumulated for the user-selected averaging period--10s, 30s, 1m, 5m, 10m, 15m, 30m, 60m--and the average of the averages is saved as the average value for the period and the minimum and maximum sample are saved as the MIN/MAX values. The PCA's MIN/MAX values are really a composite of 8-cycles which will result in understating the peak inrush but is probably more reflective of levels that might cause breaker tripping problems.

The information below details the Basic Portable METSyS 3-Phase Panel Capacity Analyzer package plus a special, permanently-installed Cabinet Current Probe Kit for 480V cabinets.

"Acoustic Imaging Leak Detection Services Presentation"

F ii900 01a cEquipped with an array of microphones for an expanded field-of-view, the handheld Fluke ii900 Industrial Acoustic Imager (Sonic Industrial Imager) enables maintenance teams to quickly and accurately locate air, gas and vacuum leaks in compressed air systems; even in noisy environments. Specifically designed for noisy production facilities the new SoundSight™ technology is simple to learn and easy to implement. The 7” LCD touchscreen overlays a SoundMap™ on a visual image for quick leak location identification. The straightforward, intuitive interface allows technicians to isolate the sound frequency of the leak to filter out loud background noise. In a matter of hours, the team can inspect the entire plant – during peak operations. For the first time, you can quickly and easily identify the air leak repairs needed to ensure efficient operations and reduce utility bills. Images can be saved and exported for reporting purposes. Never leave air leaks unattended again.

Due to global battery shortages the ii900 Precision Acoustic Imager will be shipped with 1 (one) rechargeable battery Your second battery will follow later. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you.

  • Do more with the same air compressors – delay the capital expense of purchasing an additional compressor
  • Ensure proper air pressure to your pneumatic equipment
  • Lower utility costs
  • Reduce leak detection time
  • Improve reliability in your production line
