The fault detection circuit has been upgraded and test voltage is now monitored directly from the electrode, instead of a transformer winding. The fault circuitrydifferentiatesbetween four types of fault conditions: simple pinholes, a series of closely spaced pinholes, direct metal contact from the center conductor to the electrode, and gross lengths of bare wire. The RC controller is supplied fixed to the unit, but can be detached and mounted remotely up to 60m away from the test module/electrode. It has a large, bright, alphanumeric display/ user interface and can be rotated in its bracket to accommodate different viewing angles. The display makes configuration of the equipment easy: all configuration parameters can be changed directly from the front panel menu structure. Once configured, the system can be passcode protected. In cases where a local display is not required, or centralised process control is desired, the equipment can be controlled directly from PLCs or computers using Modbus RTU (RS-485 full duplex).
Clinton Instrument Company is a specialist in spark test technology for the wire and cable industry, and inventor of the high frequency sine wave spark tester. Following the success of the model HF- 15B high frequency sine wave spark tester, Clinton’s range of DC spark testers are being redesigned to make use of the advancements of the B-series. Among the features of the B-series are the split-electrode design for easy string-up, and digital signal processor (DSP) based voltage regulation and fault detection.
