  • bolted, welded and soldered connections of conductors and buses;
  • rail bonds, wheels of cars, etc.

User participation in the measurement process is minimal. The me­asurement process is started by pressing one button, without any additional settings.

To obtain reliable values, it is recommended to make measurements at sufficiently high currents through the transient resistance, which is set out, for example, in IEC 56 standards (I≥50A).

Measurements are made using a hi­ghly stable DC current. This all­ows measuring the electrical resis­tance of circuits containing current transformers, which are usually fitted on high-voltage dead tank circuit breakers.

MIKO-1 is designed for operation in harsh electromagnetic e­nvironment of power stations and sub­stations, with measuring channels of the de­vice allowing to suppress electromagnetic interference of industrial frequency.

Integrated battery in MIKO-1 provides its portability and has a capacity sufficient to per­form to 100 measurements. It is charged from an internal charger powered by the mains.

The device has a small weight (3.6 kg) and small dimensions; a special bag provid­es its convenient movement, which allo­ws you to ascent with it on any circuit breaker.

If you have to carry out diagnostics in difficult weather conditions, you can be sure of the accuracy of the results. The MIKO-1 microohmmeter is guaranteed to operate at temperatures from -15 to + 40° C.

    PD Cherepovets Electric Power Network the branch of IDGC of North-West, PJSC

    In the production activities, our production department uses the following devices manufactured by SKB EP, LLC:

    • PKV/M7 high-voltage circuit breaker analyzer (in operation since 2008);
    • PUV-regulator dedicated for controlling the drive of a high-voltage circuit breaker at low voltage (in operation since 2019);
    • MIKO-1 industrial microohmmeter (in operation since 2019).

    Above-mentioned devices are used for diagnostics of both Russian-manufactured high-voltage circuit breakers (VMT-110, MKP-110, VT-35, S-35, VK-10, VMP-10) and of foreign production (LTB-145).

    Being used these devices have proven themselves to be the best side. With the help of PKV/M7, it became possible to detect internal defects of the circuit breakers in a non-demountable mode. The functionality of the device is very simple and easy to use. The device allows you to control main characteristics of high-voltage circuit breakers. The main faults identified by PKV/M7 during repairs are the different timing of contact closures. When analyzing the speed characteristics, speed dips are detected that indicate the presence of jamming or mashing in the mechanism and that means that repair is required. Before this device was purchased, all the characteristics had to be taken with the demount of the circuit breaker, which led to an increase in the repair time.

    The device for controlling the drive of a high-voltage circuit breaker at a low voltage (PUV-regulator) was purchased for the needs of our division relatively recently. The presence of this device made it possible to check the operability of a high-voltage circuit breaker at low voltage, which is one of the standards for testing and measurements.

    Industrial microohmmeter MIKO-1 is also relatively new for our company, but it has proven itself only on the positive side.

    All the devices we use are mobile. One more advantage of MIKO-1 is the presence of autonomous power supply.

    We would also like to thank you for holding free webinars dedicated to the study of the devices manufactured by your company.

    I definitely recommend these devices for organizations that operate high-voltage equipment.

    Kanskaya CHPP, JSC

    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. 

    [Manufacturer note]: 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.

    [Manufacturer note]: 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.
