Test equipment: Transformer tester is quick, easy, safe

test equipment HD Electric Textron

Test equipment: HD Electric Co., a Textron Inc. company, has launched its ClearTest™ Transformer Tester, a compact and lightweight handheld device to quickly, easily and safely test all distribution connectors in a transformer. The device looks both inside and outside the transformer, testing the coil, core and whatever the transformer connects to, alerting the user of any open circuits or short circuits, as well as notifying the user that the transformer is OK to work on.

The ClearTest™ Transformer Tester is a completely new design that briefly energizes the transformer and takes a snapshot of its condition by measuring the voltage, current and power factor of the test signal. The one-button interface quickly and easily verifies that the transformer and its secondary connections are neither open nor shorted and provides an audible alarm to confirm a successful test.

The ClearTest™ Transformer Tester is compatible with new or reworked, single or three phase transformers and all the connections made to them, up to and including the revenue meter. The device can be utilized in both the field to test transformers prior to energizing, or in the shop for a quick screening of incoming and outgoing transformers for primary and secondary shorts or opens, including internal fuses and breakers.
