The electrotechnical laboratory of Kanskaya CHPP, JSC has used the following devices of SKB EP, LLC in operation: MIKO-1 (since 2009); PKV/M7 and PUV-regulator (since 2016).
These devices are used to measure and diagnose oil circuit breakers, vacuum circuit breakers; load-break switches; measurement of transient resistances of contact connections of disconnectors, busbars.
MIKO-1 microohmmeter has optimal overall dimensions, easy and convenient to use. This device is equipped with a built-in battery, which makes it easier to use it even on the high objects. The disadvantage of this device is the inability to work while charging and the inability to connect power bank when working in the field.
MIKO-1 was developed more than 20 years ago, when the ability to connect to a power bank, as well as the ability to work when charging from mains, weren’t so widespread and necessary. These disadvantages are eliminated for our more modern microohmmeters MIKO-10 and MIKO-21. At the same time, we also would like to note that the built-in battery is safer from the point of view of the device's safety than the external one, and makes it possible to conduct diagnostics and measurements even when the device can’t be connected to the network. If your MIKO-1 runs out of power quickly, we recommend you to replace the battery in the device by yourself (we can send you instructions).
We also equipped the crocodile-type measuring clamps with measuring forks, which allows to take measurements faster.
As regards the additional supply of the measuring terminals with measuring plugs by yourself, we would like to note that it may affect the condition of the cables and the accuracy of the measurement results. In the additional configuration of MIKO-1 (you can learn more about them in the section Complete set) there are measuring cables with with spring loaded needle-type contacts (art. SKB018.13.00.000 and SKB018.17.00.000), which can be used for measuring transient resistances in hard-to-reach areas of any objects with painted or dirty surfaces.
The devices PKV/M7, PUV-regulator also proved its great quality. They are convenient and easy to use, and what is more, they have high measurement accuracy. The devices allow you to measure a number of important parameters in one cycle (time diversity, compression, speed, etc.), which significantly cuts the processing time and assessment of the technical condition of the switch. The complete set of the device is sufficient for carrying out work on the equipment operated by us.
The devices of SKB EP LLC have proven themselves positively in terms of operation, accuracy and speed of measurements. Their use can significantly save time for diagnostics of electrical equipment and improve the quality of service.
We express our gratitude to SKB EP LLC for high-quality and reliable products and recommend these devices to organizations engaged in the repair and operation of equipment.
