CMControl, the flexible front panel control for the OMICRON CMC test sets, now provides a new test tool for meter testing. With this tool, CMControl users now have the possibility to test not only various power system protection devices but also electricity meters on-site in an easy and cost-efficient way.

The CMControl meter testing tool’s functionality includes calibration of Wh and varh measurements, each in both load directions. Depending on the CMC test set used, meter calibration up to an 0.2 accuracy class is possible. Start-up and no-load checks also can be performed to assess the proper function of electromechanical meters.

All newly-ordered CMControl devices will be delivered with the meter testing functionality at no extra cost. Users of existing devices can download a free software upgrade from the customer area of the OMICRON website. The new software version includes the meter testing tool and other enhancements.

The CMControl is characterized by easy handling and thought out functionality. It provides different specialized test tools that guide the user through a test in a step-by- step sequence. The device's intuitive touch screen user interface allows users to obtain reliable results in a short time.
