Phase attribute and GPS location datalogger
PhaseID Dataloggers remote phase identification instruments determine, indicate and datalog actual phase attribute and GPS location of any energized conductor in real time.
Phoenix, Ariz., February 11, 2010—Origo announces the PhaseID Dataloggers remote phase identification instruments for determining, indicating and datalogging the actual phase attribute and GPS location of any energized conductor in real time.
The Lineman model is an enhancement to the Origo PhaseID System available since 2003. The Lineman model automates and datalogs PhaseID field probe measurements and their GPS location.
The handheld model does not require a direct voltage contact and can be used by non-lineman to simultaneously obtain the phase attribute and GPS location of residential utility meters. This benefits smart meter installers by eliminating the need to carry a dedicated GPS instrument.
The PhaseID System indicates Actual Phase Attribute (A, B, C) of any energized conductor and not just the phase angle between conductors at two different locations. It works in areas with no cellular service and even within totally shielded enclosures.
The PhaseID System provides simple management of tagging reference phase, which is the most important feature of any phase identification system. Phase attribute measurements are meaningless if not compared to the proper tagging reference phase. Dataloggers automatically create this all important tagging reference phase as needed.
