Measure Large Capacitor Banks with the ABB CB-2000 Portable Meter

ABB-CB2000-16A compact design and light weight make the ABB CB-2000 Portable Capacitance Meter easy to carry when conducting measurements. No mains connection is required.

With the ABB CB-2000 Portable Capacitance Meter even large capacitor banks can be measured quickly and easily because no internal disconnections are necessary within the capacitor bank.

The LCD display of the CB-2000 Portable Capacitance Meter shows measured values clearly both in daylight and in dark environments.

The low voltage (less than 1.4 V) test signal is generated only when a measurement is made, in order to minimize power consumption. The measurement frequency is automatically adjusted according to the measured capacitance for best possible results.

The ABB CB-2000 is short-circuit proof, has a measuring range of 0-1000 μF, and to ensure reproducibility, up to five measurements can be stored and shown for each measurement object. The measurements produced by the CB-2000 are time stamped and the internal temperature at the time of measurement is stored as well. The data can later be downloaded to a PC for storage and analysis using the accompanying software.
