CMControl, the front-panel control for CMC test sets from Omicron, will soon provide a completely new test tool for meter testing. With this new tool, CMC users get the possibility to perform on-site meter tests with the CMControl in an easy and cost-efficient way. The "Meter" test tool includes the calibration of Wh and varh at arbitrary load points as well as start-up and no-load checks for electromechanical meters.
Starting fall of this year, all newly ordered CMControl devices will be delivered with this new functionality at no extra cost. At the same time users of existing devices can download a free firmware upgrade in the customer area of the OMICRON website, which includes the new test tool and other additional enhancements.
The CMControl is a front panel control for the CMC 356, CMC 353, CMC 256plus, and CMC 256-6.
Due to its intuitive touch screen user interface setting up tests with the CMControl is particularly easy and convenient. The control wheel also allows accurate adjustment of output values during the test. The test tools included and integrated fault models are optimized for manual testing to get reliable test results quickly.
The CMControl is much more than just a classical front panel control. It can either be attached to the CMC test set or be detached and used as a flexible handheld control. Magnetic elements at the rear allow it to be easily attached to standard protection cubicles. The device can also be comfortably positioned on the table with the built-in stand.
