Megger Introduces The Newest Innovations in Oil Testing

Redesigned in their entirety after a detailed analysis of user requirements, the new range of oil test sets from Megger sets new standards for performance, ease of use, reliability and value for money. The new OTS range includes laboratory instruments for testing up to 100 kV, and portable instruments – including the world’s lightest oil test sets in the 60 kV and 75 to 80 kV ranges.
  • Easiest test sets to maintain and clean
  • Unique locking feature on electrode gap adjustment
  • World's lightest portable oil test set
  • Worlds's highest voltage portable oil test set
Tough chambers

All of the instruments in the range use the same test vessel, which is manufactured from a moulded material that has been specially selected as impervious to the effects of insulating oils and cleaning agents. The use of this material means that the vessels are much more resistant to breakage than their conventional glass counterparts and also much less expensive – both major benefits, particularly for those who prefer to use separate vessels for each type of oil.

Packed with useful features

Megger’s new oil test sets also offer convenient and precise thumbwheel adjustment for electrode spacing. Unlike all other currently available instruments, the adjuster incorporates a locking mechanism that completely eliminates the problem of accidental electrode movement during testing.

Other key features include a convenient pouring lip on the test vessel, a unique test chamber drain for spilt oil, automatic oil temperature measurement, support for both output voltage and output current breakdown detection, and facilities for storing results internally and on standard USB memory sticks. Data output is provided in .csv format for transfer in to laboratory information management system software (LIMS). USB memory sticks can also be used for loading different test standards.

2 portable and 3 laboratory oil test sets

The OTS range includes five models. The OTS60AF, OTS80AF and OTS100AF are primarily intended for use in fixed locations, such as laboratories, and offer maximum test voltages of 60 kV, 80 kV and 100 kV respectively. The OTS60PB and OTS80PB are compact lightweight instruments for portable use and offer maximum test voltages of 60 kV and 80 kV respectively.

All models feature a colour display with straightforward menu navigation, which makes them fast and easy to use. In addition, the laboratory models have a large keypad to facilitate rapid data entry.

Buy as much as you want

Across the range, Megger offers a configure-to-build service. This allows purchasers to specify the precise combination of options they need, and then Megger builds the instrument to suit. This means that users can have all of the features and facilities they need, without having to pay for unwanted options.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
