Improved Multi Functional Test Meter:It combines all of the basic fast response DC Voltage measurements required for the DCVG test method. However it also provides a higher range of voltages to allow the Field technologists and engineers to measure DC voltages up to 50 volts DC. This then expands the utilisation of the basic DCVG instrumentation to have it available as a CP test instrument in addition to its traditional use just as a dedicated instrument for DCVG testing.
One Piece Test Probes with handles:From their field experience of heavy duty service required of this type of equipment, we have recognised the need to improve the DCVG probes. The DC Scan probes are now a one piece unit. The traditional bias box is now a screw on attachment on the top of the probe hand grips. This allows the individual probes to be a one piece item that adds electrolyte level to improve wet ability of the probe tips with the ground.
Interrupter Options:The A team recognised that when people invested in DCVG equipment, it should be more versatile than simply delivering a fixed 1 Second cycle for DCVG testing. We also recognised that many of the pipelines under test were relatively free of coating defects. So they have made the package versatile in relation to the interrupter used for the test package.
If you already have interrupters that are capable of switching at 0.2 / 0.8 cycles, you might decide you do not need an interrupter. Alternatively a suite of interrupters from 5 Amps to 100 Amps can be chosen as your interrupter for the kit you acquire. It also can be a basic unit or satellite synchronising.
