TESCO’s new Field Test Interface Kit (Catalog No. 2200) provides metering professionals with exceptional testing flexibility. The Field Test Interface includes a zero insertion force (ZIF) meter socket, voltage and form selection, and connection points to link it with a TESCO Field Test Kit (Catalog No. 621, 630 or GA Series). When combined with a Field Test Kit and powered via inverter (commonly used on service trucks), the Field Test Interface will then power the Field Test Kit to create a single position, stand-alone, meter accuracy testing device for various socket based meters (both mechanical & solid-state). Power for the Field Test Interface can also be supplied by customer potential via TESCO Field Test Kit (no need for the inverter).
The Field Test Interface, with the proper load box, boasts a 50 amp max current input and operates on voltages up to 480V. With an optional disconnect operation (only functional when powered via 120 VAC/inverter), you’ll be able to conduct all required meter testing while in the field.
TESCO’s Field Test Interface Kit has all the functionality as the Desktop Meter Stations and can be used as a programming station, a single meter evaluation station, or a test bed for checking meter features and anomalies. And with the on-board meter socket, you’ll eliminate all the adapters needed for transformer-rated and self-contained testing.
All Field Test Interface Kits are built with the TESCO tradition of reliability and ruggedness.
