PMT40600 Meter Calibration Console

The model PMT40600 is a fully automatic multi-position Meter Calibration Console designed to facilitate the testing of single-phase and poly-phase energy and demand meters to CSA/ANSI specifications.

Complete system automation eliminates the typical practice of connecting leads and plugs to configure the voltage and current circuits for a given meter type. The operator simply identifies the meter type and the system is ready to perform testing of standard or user defined test sequences. This capability provides several benefits encompassing enhanced productivity, reduced learning curve, meter protection, equipment protection and operator safety.

The system architecture allows consoles to be configured with 6, 10 or 20 positions supporting direct S-base testing. Bottom connected meters can be tested with adapter sockets or hard-wired to the provided voltage and current terminals. A single-phase, phantom load source, powered from solid-state amplifiers provide S-E-01 compliant voltage and current waveforms.

An integral host computer provides a direct, intuitive and 'user-friendly' operator interface based upon the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. The hosting computer provides automatic execution of pre-programmed test sequences, storage of meter records, printing of test certificates and reports, statistical analysis and connection to a local area network as required.

Additional features of the system include a precision Dual Reference Standard, versatile multi-mode optical pickup, local Station Error displays, multi-channel Station KYZ pulse inputs and dual Pulse Generator.

Of concern to Canadian utilities and manufacturers, the PMT40600 has been designed to meet or exceed the Measurement Canada S-E-01 specification for Electricity Measuring Apparatus.
