In this article we inform about the new equipment for measuring quality of electric power, quality of income and power measurement offered by Amperis, of high precision and stability:

 

Amperis multi-voltage charger review

In industry, there are a number of electronic devices and machines which have different voltage compositions and charging specifications. And as per industry statistics, machines are run for a fair average of at least 8-10 hours. So the need of a multi-utility, Quality charger becomes quintessential for the operations.
A multi-voltage battery charger is a digitally programmed and heavy-duty universal battery charger' specially designed for industries to charge different voltage batteries fitted into various electronic devices, machines or operators.

How to test and evaluate your battery

Industrial battery chargers are entering a new phase, with more efficient developments and with a technology that combines energy efficiency with robustness and flexibility. The objective of these improvements, in terms of equipment innovation, is to reduce the carbon footprint and save energy.

Measurement of insulation resistance

The insulation was designed to withstand stresses during its useful life, but we must bear in mind that the electrical insulation degrades over time and abnormal stresses can accelerate this natural process, shortening its life. This is why it is important to perform tests regularly to detect accelerated aging, its cause and actions to correct the situation.

Analysis of Amperis battery monitor

The Amperis monitor is a device that is used in traction batteries of any type, voltage or capacity, for monitoring, management and registration. The system uses the most advanced technology for the monitoring of traction batteries, measures and records all the relevant parameters of battery operation and communicates in real time through CANBUS, PWM or RS-232; allowing a complete integration with the control system of the vehicle, the charger and other accessories (All measured values are stored on a Micro-SD card).

The problem of sulfation

Over time, the batteries degrade and lose the ability to store energy. Additionally, lead acid batteries suffer sulfation. If a regenerative treatment is not applied to the sulphated battery, the battery loses capacity and its life is reduced, its replacement being necessary. Discarding an industrial battery has negative environmental implications, however regenerating it, saving money from acquiring a new battery and actively and consciously collaborating with the environment.

Corona effect camera in the energy industry

The corona effect detection is being used as a diagnostic tool to control critical components in an electrical network. By using a highly sensitive ultraviolet radiation camera such as Amperis CoroCAM, corona and ultraviolet radiation can be recorded to evaluate the state of a device. Failures in high voltage equipment carry a very high risk so preventive maintenance saves high costs. Partial discharges may also occur due to structural defects or problems in the insulation.

Dielectric strength oil analyzer

In this article we will know a little better the equipment for measurement dielectric strength of insulating oil. The Dielectrotest is a fully automatic dielectric oil analyzer, used to determine the breaking voltage of the insulating liquid. The equipment is designed to be used in the laboratory or in the field in commissioning and maintenance tasks since it serves to test the electrical insulation capacity and the voltage test of insulating oils in transformers.

Detection methods of partial discharges

According to the IEC60270 standard, partial discharges are dielectric discharges in a localized area of a dielectric insulation system. This electrical insulation system is under the stress of the voltage and the partial discharges deteriorate the insulation of a transformer and can cause its failure.
It is important to perform partial diagnostic discharge measurements to detect discharges that begin to follow in their early stages and locate their origin.

What is a battery simulator?

What is a battery simulator?

A battery simulator is an electronic device that simulates the real properties of a battery. The objective is to supply the voltage, power and current required in the same way as a real battery, that is, it is like a programmable electronic battery. This equipment is a very practical evaluation tool for evaluating a battery charger.
