capacitive voltage sensor

Learning more about capacitive voltage sensors

Have you ever seen that tiny pen with a glowing tip? Do you know that it is called capacitive voltage sensors and it’s one of the technological breakthroughs in the metrology industry?

 

Wondering how it works? Here’s how:

 

AC voltage detectors work based on the principle of capacitive coupling. According to Fluke, to understand this, let’s return momentarily to electrical circuit theory and recall how a capacitor works. A capacitor has two conductors or “plates” that are separated by a non-conductor called a dielectric. If we connect an ac voltage across the two conductors, an ac current will flow as the electrons are alternately attracted or repelled by the voltage on the opposite plate. There’s a complete ac circuit even though there’s no “hard-wired” circuit connection. The electrical “field” inside the capacitor, between the two plates, is what completes the AC circuit.

 

We are actually missing the fact that our world is full of small “stray” capacitors. We always think that these are just individual circuit components like motor starting caps.

 

Here’s an example from the Fluke website:

 

Suppose you are standing on a carpeted concrete floor directly under a 120 V light fixture and the light is on. Your body is conducting a very small ac current because it is part of a circuit consisting of two capacitors in series. The two conductors or plates for the first capacitor are the live element in the light bulb and your body. The dielectric is the air (and maybe your hat) between them. The two conductors for the second capacitor are your body and the concrete floor (remember that concrete is a good conductor, as is shown by the use of concrete-encased electrodes as earth grounds).

 

The dielectric for the second capacitor is the carpet plus your shoes and socks. This second capacitor is much larger than the first. A very small ac current will flow because there is 120 V across the series combination. (As an aside, this current must be way below the shock threshold or we wouldn’t be living in a world of ac power-we definitely would not be turning on lights in the bathroom.)

thermal imaging

The Importance of Thermal Imaging in Data Centers

Ensuring that data storage remains safe, secure and accessible requires systematically taking and storing thermal images of data center equipment.

 

With this, it is crucial to have periodic inspections of data centers to ensure the reliability and sustainability of their systems to avoid lost data due to failed equipment.

 

In line with this, an important tool for performing data center inspections today, is the thermal imager, also referred to as an infrared (IR) camera.

 

A thermal imager is an industrial tool that displays and has an ability to store two-dimensional images of an object’s surface temperatures. This enables you to easily detect anomalies in the temperatures of electrical or mechanical components, that are hotter or colder than similar objects within the same environment.

 

Overheating components may indicate potential problems and would require maintenance to avoid system failure. On the other hand, cool surfaces might also indicate a problem, such as a possible imbalance in the HVAC system that would require correcting.

 

Additionally, thermal cameras can also be used to record actual surface temperatures. This is useful in detecting situations such as an overheating transformer or motor, to give time for repair or replacement before failure.

 

To maximize the use of thermal cameras, it is ideal to capture potential problems detected from the thermal images. For recording and proper monitoring, upload the captured images to a computer that is equipped with a software for reporting and analysis.

 

Keeping a thermal “track record” on file is helpful in getting long term comparison, to better detect abnormal readings and any inconsistencies. Moreover, to ensure consistency and better comparison, establish a sampling route and scan the same objects or areas each time from the same vantage points.

dual impedance digital multimeters

The Dual Impedance of Digital Multimeters

There are numerous digital multimeters that offer several features to make electrical measurement easier, safer, and more reliable. However, there are still factors that need to be considered when measuring electricity and voltages. Most digital multimeters such as the Fluke 114, 116, and 117 series are capable of having a dual impedance in order to solve common electrical measurement complications. To have further understanding, we are here to discuss the basic features and uses of dual impedance.

Impedance Basics

 

Nowadays, digital multimeters that are being used for testing industrial, electrical, and electronic systems have high impedance input circuits. Basically, this means that when the DMM is placed across a circuit for a measurement, it will have little impact on circuit performance. This is the desired effect for most voltage measurement applications and is especially important for sensitive electronics or control circuits.

 

However, older troubleshooting tools such as analog multimeters generally have low impedance input circuitry. This limits their performance and is only used for testing power circuits or other circuits where the low impedance will not negatively impact or alter circuit performance.

What About It?

 

As a means of safety and accurate results, dual impedance meters provide technicians the ability to safely troubleshoot sensitive electronic or control circuits as well as circuits that may contain ghost voltages, and can more reliably determine whether a voltage is present on a circuit.

 

On the Fluke 114, 116 and 117 DMMs, the meter’s regular Vac and Vdc switch positions are high impedance. These switch positions are mostly used for troubleshooting scenarios and sensitive electronic loads.

 

The Fluke low impedance function (Auto-V/LoZ) Auto-V reduces the possibility of false readings due to ghost voltages and improves accuracy when testing to determine the absence or presence of voltage. Use the Auto-V/LoZ switch position on the DMM when readings are suspect (ghost voltages may be present) or when testing for the presence of voltage.

Ghost Voltages

 

In order to understand more what dual impedance, do to electrical measurement processes, Ghost voltages must be carefully identified and explained. These voltages occur from having energized circuits and non-energized wiring located in close proximity to each other, such as in the same conduit or raceway. This condition forms a capacitor and allows capacitive coupling between the energized wiring and the adjacent unused wiring.

 

The most common places to encounter ghost voltages are blown fuses in distribution panels, unused cable runs or electrical wiring in existing conduit. Some amount of ghost voltage can be coupled from the hot side to the open side across the blown fuse. When facilities or buildings are built and wired, it’s very common for electricians to pull extra wire through the conduit for future use.

Absence or presence of voltage testing

 

Traditionally most electricians and plant maintenance professionals used some form of solenoid tester to determine whether circuits were energized or not. Because of their low impedance circuit, solenoid testers are not fooled by ghost voltage.

 

These testers did their job back in the day but they rarely comply with the current IEC 61010 safety standards and current North American regulatory requirements. But with a dual impedance meter that has Auto-V/LoZ function, leads are placed on an open circuit that contains a ghost voltage. The low input impedance will cause the ghost voltage to dissipate and the meter will display a reading near zero volts indicating no voltage present.

 

Given the variety and complexity of measurement and testing requirements found in most facilities today, a meter with a dual impedance input offers the troubleshooter or technician more flexibility to cover applications or measurement needs ranging from basic voltage testing to troubleshooting sensitive electronic circuits. Having a trusted voltage detector helps increase efficiency and adds an additional safety check for technicians, Presidium is your top choice to bring you that efficient voltage detector. As the authorized distributor of Fluke products in the country, we are committed to providing the best measurement tools, especially those that are equipped with high-quality dual impedance input.

fluke ii900

How Fluke ii900 Saved a Manufacturer’s Business

One of the world’s most prominent aftermarket manufacturer was interviewed regarding air leaks. This company design, craft, and markets its products under famous brands. They widely use compressed air to run equipment in their plant.

Controlling Energy Waste

 

Air leaks lead to wasted energy by causing the equipment that is run by compressed air to work harder. Older equipment that is stored in the plant increases the probability of air leaks. Leak detection activities are done after hours as hearing air leaks is difficult especially in a noisy environment.

 

They wait for the building to fall quiet, usually on during off-shift and maintenance shutdown to listen to air leaks. They also spray soapy water to areas they think have a leak and observe if there will be bubbles.

 

They also use other methods such as using ultrasonic leak detector. It requires a certain time and a highly trained professional. Small leaks aren’t very audible to the human ear and are sometimes located in a difficult to access area.

 

Fluke approached the said manufacturer to encourage them to try  Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager. This equipment can locate a leak even from 50 feet away in a noisy environment.

 

The maintenance lead and maintenance technician alternating throughout 8 hours of scanning the entire plant of leaks. At the end of their procedure, they found an overall of 143 leaks both big and small.

 

They verified the leaks the equipment has prompted by spraying the said areas with soapy waters. And true enough, the tool was right.

Fluke ii900’s ability to find leaks in hard to search places pleased the maintenance manager.

 

The Fluke ii900 Sonic Industrial Imager has a built-in acoustic array of tiny sensitive microphones that generates a spectrum of decibel levels per frequency. An algorithm then calculates a sound image known as SoundMap that is superimposed on a visual image. The SoundMap can filter out background noise because it automatically adapts depending on the frequency selected. It is updated on screen 10-20 times per second.

 

The maintenance manager commended that Fluke is very user-friendly that you can just pick it up and walk down the aisles scanning for leaks. Not only does it save time but it also saves labor and energy cost.

fluke mda 550 motor drive analyzer

Fluke MDA-550 Drive Analyzer combines several functions into one instrument and reduces the number of tools you need. Troubleshooting and measuring are more convenient with Fluke MDA-550 Drive Analyzer as it automates drive measurements and guides the users via test setups.
Danfoss project director confirms the Fluke Motor Drive Analyzer makes testing and troubleshooting easier.

 

Motor drives are everywhere because they are vital in adapting the speed of a motor to the needs of an application. Motor drives are a significant behind-the-scenes component in fans, pumps, compressors, and other motor-driven equipment.

 

Danfoss, founded by legendary innovator Mads Clausen, is a global manufacturer of commercial refrigeration and heating systems, hydraulics, and motor drives and one of the largest industrial companies and employers in Denmark.

 

The said company has recently partnered with Fluke to test the new Fluke MDA-550 Motor Drive Analyzer. Norbert Hanigovszki, Project Director in the Technology Development Group of the Danfoss Drives has been with the company for years and holds bachelor’s and master’s degree in electrical engineering, as well as a doctorate in EMC and power electronics.

 

Norbert Hanigovszki said that “Today, when you go to a site for a service call and you don’t know exactly where you want to start looking or what you want to investigate, you will probably take with you a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a power analyzer.”

 

He also stated that you will also need to have some special knowledge that is gained through experiences to do that.

 

Hanigovszki says, “The motor drive analyzer changes things because you will only need one instrument.”

 

He also claimed that “It’s good enough for in-depth troubleshooting, and another advantage is that you get help from the instrument, from the diagrams and instructions.”

 

The Fluke Motor Drive Analyzer tells you how to measure what you want to measure. For instance, you want to measure the voltage of the output of the drive, the MDA-550 will pre-set the instrument in order to measure that particular spot.
