VHE of Iceland has announced a major upgrade to its popular cathode and anode current meters.
Used for measuring the d.c. current in cathode riser bars and anode stems, the meters are now supplied with an updated display panel incorporating Bluetooth technology. Immediately the measurement stabilises, visual and aural prompts cue the operator to press a data button, transmitting the reading to a portable device running customised software.
Initially designed for handheld computers running Windows, the software will soon be extended to run as a app on smartphones.
The handle lengths and geometry of both the cathode and anode ammeters are customised to suit each customer's pot configuration. Measuring heads are pluggable for quick change, and the meter unit will identify each head, eliminating the need to recalibrate the unit before every use.
