The ABB CB-2000 Portable Capacitance Meter is simple to use and the measured values are clearly presented on the LCD display, which can be read both in daylight and in dark environments. With the CB-2000 even large capacitor banks can be measured quickly and easily because no internal disconnections are necessary within the capacitor bank.
The ABB CB-2000 test signal is generated from the installed rechargeable battery pack or power adapter and connected to the measurement object with two voltage clips. The test voltage is 1.1–1.4 V. The test current is measured using a clip-on transformer that is easily positioned around the capacitor’s bushing. For each measurement, the capacitance value, time and temperature are registered. The meter can handle data from five measurements per measurement object.
Analysis on PC
The ABB CB-2000 is supplied with a program that enables the transfer of data to and from a PC via a USB cable.
Prior to measurement, the CB-2000 can be prepared by uploading data from a previously conducted measurement. After the measurements are made, the measurement values can be stored and analyzed on a PC. Measurement data is saved as tab-delimited text, which can be opened in Excel or similar spreadsheet programs.
