  • The Importance of Battery Testers Fluke Pro Tips

    Fluke Pro, Jason Axelson explains why early identification of battery failure helps keep your assets as well as your company up and running.

    Use a battery tester to measure voltage, internal resistance, and strap resistance to find indications of early-stage battery failure or installation problems.

    Key measurements – Internal battery resistance, dc and ac voltage, dc and ac current, ripple voltage, frequency, and temperature.

    Sequence measurement mode – Automatic or manual sequence testing of battery strings with automatic measurement storage including voltage, resistance, and temperature (with BTL21 intelligent test probe), eliminating the need to press a button each time measurement needs to be saved.

    Comprehensive logging – All measured values are automatically captured during testing and can be reviewed on the instrument before downloading for on-the-go analysis.

  • Why do I need an insulation tester | Comtest Fluke Pro Tips

    Shaun from Fluke educates us why an insulation tester is a crucial tool to have. He elaborates on the benefits yield by the insulation meter.

    Check out our insulation testers and see what they do: https://comtest.co.za/Online-Store/Ca...
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Why do you need an insulation tester?
    The insulation tester is designed to check the integrity of conductors wires or check the insulation value of motor/compressor windings. We check if there is a breakdown in there that might cause malfunctioning. Insulation tester is helpful for a preventive maintenance plan (PMP) it allows you to do a streamlined test and baseline test.

  • Introducing the Fluke IRR1 SOL Irradiance Meter

    hether you’re surveying, installing, executing maintenance or checking the performance of solar panels or a photovoltaic system, the Fluke irradiance meter takes 4 critical measurements needed.

    With the Fluke irradiance meter, you can make instantaneous measurements to determine the watt per square meter solar irradiation. Measure the ambient temperature at the panel easier and faster than ever.

    The Fluke IRR1-SOL is the only irradiance meter that can take the temperature without needing an external probe. This is enabled by innovative Fluke technology which embeds an integrated conductive temperature sensor in the meter. Temperature can also be measured with increased accuracy with the external temperature probe.

    + A built-in compass enables you to measure and document roof or site orientation.

    + An inclination sensor lets you know the solar panel tilt when surveying, installing or adjusting the installation.

    + The Fluke irradiance meter is robust, rugged, compact, and ergonomically designed so it fits comfortably in your hand.

    + The high contrast LCD and large, readable numbers make the screen easy to see even in bright sunlight.

    + It comes with a convenient carry case with a shoulder strap.

    Get all the critical photovoltaic measurements needed to install, verify, and report on the performance of a photovoltaic system in one easy-to-use instrument.

  • Determine site orientation with the Fluke Solar Irradiance

    Use the integrated compass on the Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter to measure and document roof or site orientation.

    + First perform irradiance, temperature and inclination measurements with the meter turned on and aligned with the panel.

    + If the tilt is above 20 degrees, any compass reading will be inaccurate. The metal in the panel or other surrounding metal objects will also affect the compass reading. This is why another step is necessary to verify the direction.

    + Position the meter away from the panel and any other metal objects and with the tip of the meter facing in the same direction as the panel.

    + Confirm your compass reading.

  • Find Inclination of a Panel with the Fluke Solar Irradiance Meter

    The Fluke IRR1-SOL Irradiance Meter has a built-in inclination sensor that lets you know the roof or solar panel tilt when surveying, installing or adjusting the installation.

    + Simply place the Irradiance Meter directly onto the solar panel to get accurate tilt.

    + For surfaces of rooftops with inclinations different than 0°, place the meter on the ground and push the ZERO button for 2 seconds to reset the angle.

    + Then, measure the true inclination of the solar panel.

    Get 4 critical photovoltaic measurements in one easy-to-use tool when surveying, installing or adjusting your solar installation. Visit Fluke.com to find out more.

  • Photovoltaic System Measurements with the Fluke Solar Irradiance Meter

    he IRR1 irradiance meter is the perfect tool to conduct comprehensive tests and measurements on photovoltaic systems. It provides four key measurements all in one tool: irradiance, temperature, tilt, and compass degree.

    Irradiation is a critical metric to consider when conducting a survey or inspection of a solar installation.

    1. IRRADIANCE: The Fluke IRR1 irradiance meter instantaneously measures solar irradiance up to 1400 watts per square meter. In addition to irradiance, solar professionals need to measure the temperature of the surfaces of a photovoltaic panel.

    + TEMPERATURE: The Fluke irradiance meter comes with an integrated temperature sensor that allows users to measure the top of a solar panel, simply by placing the unit on the surface. To measure the temperature of the back of the panel, the Fluke Irradiance Meter comes with an attachable, external probe.

    + TILT: Tilt angle of a solar panel is important to maximize efficiency. Identify the ideal inclination of a panel by enabling the tilt function. For scenarios where the rooftop is not level, use the Zero function to calculate the real tilt.

    + COMPASS DEGREE: The location and direction of a panel determines the amount of irradiation absorbed. Get the direction of the panel in degrees by using the compass function on the IRR1 irradiance meter.

  • Fluke 500 Series Battery Analyser

    The Fluke 500 Series Battery Analyser is the ideal test tool for maintenance, troubleshooting and performance testing of individual stationary batteries and battery banks used in critical battery backup applications.

    Some key features of the Fluke 500 Series include:
    • Battery Voltage – During the internal resistance test, Fluke Battery Analysers also measure the voltage of the battery under test
    • Discharge Volts – The Discharge mode collects the voltage of each battery multiple times at a user-defined interval during a discharge or load test. Users can calculate the time a battery takes to drop to the cut-off voltage and use this time to determine the capacity loss of the battery
    • Ripple Voltage Test – Measures unwanted residual ac component of the rectified voltage in dc charging and inverter circuits. Allows users to test ac components in dc charging circuits and find one of the root causes of battery deterioration
    • Meter and Sequence Modes – The Meter mode is used for quick tests or troubleshooting. In this mode, you can save and read the readings in a measurement or time sequence. The Sequence mode is for maintenance tasks with multiple power systems and battery strings. Before a task starts, users can configure a profile for the task for data management and report generation
    •Threshold and Warning – Users can configure a maximum of 10 sets of thresholds and receive a Pass/ Warning/ Fail indication after each measurement.
    • Intercell Strap Resistance Test and Data Management – Measures the resistance of the intercell connection between batteries in a string. Once the measurements are completed Fluke Battery Management Software version 1.0.69 can now report the strap resistance for a battery string or historical data over time and much more.
