Gossen Metrawatt has introduced the new battery-operated PROFITEST H+E EASY CHECK for simple, safe testing of AC charging points at the touch of a button. No electric training is necessary to safely check infrastructures for single- and three-phase charging processes using this device, which corresponds to the CAT III 300V measurement category and is designed for 20A and 32A cables. Charging station operators, service providers and non-professionals can use the automatic device for function testing according to DIN EN/IEC 61851-1 (VDE 0122-1) in charging mode 3 at type-2 sockets or with a permanently installed type-2 cable. The functional range includes the verification of vehicle states A, B and C; phase tests and phase sequence tests; evaluation of the PWM signal for data communication and abortion of the charging process during short-circuit simulation; and determination of battery charge levels. Test results are shown in plain text on the device display and any detected malfunctions are saved as error messages. This way, if a charging process does not work properly, users can run quick and cost-efficient checks on the charging point or wallbox and need only call a qualified electrician if they detect functional errors. In addition to standards-compliant testing, the device is also suitable for complete professional functional testing of AC charging stations, thus eliminating the need for additional devices such as multimeters or oscillographs. Gossen Metrawatt supplies the PROFITEST H+E EASY CHECK complete with operating instructions and micro-USB charging cable.

AutoVimation

Dragon High Power: New fan air nozzle for camera enclosures

Introducing the Dragon High Power fan nozzle, autoVimation now provides a new solution to keep the windows of its Salamander, Gecko and Orca series protective enclosures clean.

full text

Camera applications in dirty industrial environments require appropriate devices to keep the windows of protective enclosures free from dust, moisture and oily substances. Pneumatic devices from autoVimation such as wind curtains, protective flaps and air nozzles have proven themselves to be efficient protection methods against window contamination that impairs vision. Introducing the Dragon High Power fan nozzle, the German manufacturer now provides a new solution for its Salamander, Gecko and Orca series protective enclosures, which combines economical compressed air consumption and low noise emissions with high blowing force. The tiltable air nozzle blows a fan-shaped air jet over the enclosure window at a 20° angle. Due to its blowing force of 3.3 N at a pressure of 5 bar and an air flow of 333 liters per minute, Dragon High Power prevents dirt accumulation and can remove even severe pollution. The blowing force of the nozzle corresponds to an open pipe with an inner diameter of 4 mm, but the energy consumption is 33 % lower and noise is reduced by 40 % to 82 dB(A). The air fan is wide enough to clean 3-inch windows at only 50 mm from the nozzle outlet. Therefore, Dragon High Power can be directly affixed to the protective camera enclosure, saving installation space. autoVimation also supplies brackets with dovetail connection as accessories for flexible mounting and orientation of the nozzle on the enclosure.
