Utility testing: AEMC’s PowerPad® III Model 8333 is a three-phase power quality analyzer that is easy-to-use, compact and shock resistant. It enables technicians and engineers to measure and carry out diagnostics and power quality work on one-, two- or three-phase networks. Current and voltage input terminals are provided. It is IEC 61000-4-30 Class B and safety rated to 600V CAT IV.

The Model 8333 has memory available for storing trend data. Additional internal memory is used to let you store alarms, transients, and snapshot data. The user can store up to 12 screen snapshots, up to 51 captured transients that contain four cycles for each active input, and 4,000 alarm events from up to 10 different parameters. Trend data can also be recorded for days, weeks or even months.

• True RMS single-, two- and three-phase measurements at 256 samples/cycle, plus DC
• Real-time color waveforms
• Automatic current probe recognition and scaling
• Measures AC & DC volts, amps and power
• Displays and captures voltage, current and power harmonics to 50th order, including direction, in real-time
• Captures transients down to 1/256th of a cycle

How to deploy mobile forms + devices to speed up field service processes & reporting

Overcoming the pain points associated with any process is much simpler and more cost effective than you think. This webinar will detail the benefits of switching to mobile forms for field data collection and reporting.
We'll examine real use cases and ROI of integrating mobile forms within a given field service process, including for work orders, inspections, checklists and proposals.
A quick AT&T Mobile Forms demo will reveal the feature rich, user-friendly nature of the solution. You'll see why it’s a must-deploy to speed up data collection, eliminate invoicing/data entry lags and auto-generate/deliver insightful reports.
