Electrical installation tester supports up to 17 tests
Chauvin Arnoux has announced its latest multi-function electrical installation testers that can perform all the tests required by the applicable European standards (IEC 60364-6, NF C 15-100, VDE 100, XP C 16-600, etc.). The C.A 6116N and C.A 6117 are equipped with a Lithium-Ion battery for longer work sessions and include a backlit colour graphic display, 1,000 memory locations and a USB port for transferring the data.
Designed and manufactured in France according to eco-design principles, the intuitive testers offer all their functions directly accessible on the front panel with a rotary switch, which claims to simplify selection even when wearing safety gloves, the company stated.
With their 600V CAT III electrical safety, these testers are geared for all types of neutral systems (TT, TN, IT). They can be used for initial electrical testing of new or renovated installations, servicing and troubleshooting on installations, etc. All three models offer resistance, continuity, insulation, earth, loop impedance, current, voltage and frequency measurements, as well as type-A and AC RCD testing and phase rotation/sequence tests, detailed the company. The resolution for loop measurement is 1mΩ.
The C.A 6116N and C.A 6117 can measure active power, waveforms and harmonics. In addition, the C.A 6117 offers measurements on type-B RCDs and includes an integrated fuse table for quick estimates of the results. It also measures the voltage drop to check that the conductors are sized correctly.
The comprehensive Dataview software (available as an option) can be used to generate customized reports or reports that comply with the applicable standards.
