LCI2000C LOW-CURRENT INJECTOR
The LCI2000C injects a constant current into the earth grid. The test frequency is variable from 45 Hz to 65 Hz, in 1 Hz steps. This provides a unique test condition and the chosen signal can be easily identified when combined with the TVM1100 Tuned Voltmeter. The earth grid characteristics including impedance, touch, transferred, step voltages and current splits can be determined.
Auto shut-off is a safety feature that ensures the injected current ceases should the injection circuit be interrupted.
The LCI2000C output is galvanically isolated from the input supply. All functions can be controlled via an integrated front panel.

TVM1100 TUNED VOLTMETER
The TVM1100 is specifically designed for use with the LCI2000C injection unit to detect the voltages arising from the injected current. Due to its excellent noise rejection very low levels of test voltage may be identified, even where the background noise levels is high. Such noise may result from residual voltage on the earth grid, electric field coupling or induction in test cables.
The TVM1100 has a high input impedance to ensure accurate reading of prospective touch, step and transferred voltages. It also has a switchable low input impedance (1 kΩ) to simulate a person’s body impedance.The TVM1100 includes a second voltage input such as a flexible or clamp CT to enable current splits and associated phase angles to be measured.The TVM1100 includes GPS tracking and data logging. The GPS facility is ideal for the earth potential rise traverse while the data logging enables any readings to be recorded.

SF1000 SaltFlo CHEMICAL FLOW RATE METER
The SF1000 is a timer which measures the time taken for an impurity to travel down a pipe. By adding an impurity such as a salt to non conductive chemical such as milk and water based solutions, the flow rates of chemical processes in industrial plants can be accurately measured. The system works with the aid of two stainless steel probes, the SF1000 measures when the impurity passes by which triggers the integrated timer to start then once the solution passes the second probe located further down the pipe the timer stops. By dividing the length of the pipe by the travel time the average velocity of the solution traveling through the pipe can be calculated.
The SF1000 is designed to operate with a wide range of trigger resistances, meaning that a variety of different base chemical and impurity additive combinations are possible.

ULTRAHOUND DISCHARGE AND CORONA DETECTOR
The Ultrahound is a highly directional and sensitive partial discharge, arcing and corona detector. Electric discharges in air emit broad spectrurm noise and using ultrasonic techniques the source of any discharge can be traced.
Electric discharging of outdoor power line components can cause radio and TV frequency interference or indicate possible future failure of equipment. The Ultrahound dish can be used from up to 30 m from the noise source. A separate short range direction wand is used for close inspection.
The Ultrahound may be used for a variety of situations, including:
- • Power line discharge such as cracked insulators or bushings, faulty cable termination or damaged line hardware.
- • Corona due to damaged substation or conductor hardware.
- • Partial discharge of equipment under HV test (laboratory or in the field).
- Frequency Response: 37 - 43 kHz, with excellent out of band rejection
- Highly directional dish enables accurate pin pointing of faults
- Multi function display
- Easy portability
- Output Power: 1800 VA max
