Measurement technology at its finest
29 August 2017
This year sees VOLTCRAFT celebrate its 35th anniversary. The Conrad Business Supplies brand is known for its rugged, user-friendly and versatile multimeters.
However, VOLTCRAFT also offers a wide variety of other measurement devices. Ranging from test probes through to storage oscilloscopes, these instruments ease the workload of electrical and electronics engineers, and MRO specialists. During its anniversary year, Conrad is launching many new and innovative products. A new range of multimeters has also recently been introduced. The versatile VC-440 E, VC-450 E and VC-460 E models are particularly robust, which are specially designed for working outdoors.
Archiving and documentation made easy
The VOLTCRAFT portfolio is notable both for its wealth of measuring instruments as well as for the broad range of accessories. For example, Conrad offers the PC scope module DSO-3104 USB for the analysis and processing of analogue and digital signals. With a bandwidth of 100MHz, the device enables fast Fourier transform (FFT) for the analysis of any kind of waveform. It offers four channels and provides data export into Excel. The export function allows the storing of all data directly to the computer as well as data management. This hugely simplifies analysis and documentation. Thanks to the practically unlimited storage capacity on the computer, all data can be documented, archived and communicated, whatever the volumes involved. Laborious adjustment and setup procedures are not needed. Together with the 200-MHz DSO-1202D Storage Oscilloscope, which enables up to 1GS/s, they form an unbeatable combination for universal measurement tasks.
Enhanced safety through contactless measurement
Safety is the number-one priority when taking measurements, but the user must also be able to perform measurements in difficult-to-access locations. The BS-21 HD USB Endoscope makes it possible to see into areas that are normally inaccessible. The unit boasts a waterproof mini-camera, making the endoscope ideal for examining the interior of pipework. Used in conjunction with a mirror, the dimmable LED lighting ensures that no remote corner is too dark to investigate.
Contactless measurement is an attractive option particularly when measuring temperatures, as it rules out the possibility of the user suffering burns in high-temperature environments. To measure the temperature at defined locations, the user does not have to resort to costly heat image cameras. Alternatively, VOLTCRAFT offers a wide range of pyrometers and infrared thermometers. With the IR 260-8S it is possible to measure temperatures between 30 and 260°C from a safe distance. A connectible target laser ensures that the temperature is measured at precisely the desired location. The minimum-maximum display ensures that no extreme readings are overlooked.
The VOLTCRAFT portfolio also has a solution to cater for contactless and thus non-hazardous measurement of voltage. The MS-450 Multi-tester boasts measuring point illumination, and can detect AC voltage in the 12 to 50 and 50 to 1000 volt range.
VOLTCRAFT continues to offer a wide range of data loggers, vibration metres, multimeters and accessories. Harald Lehner, Head of VOLTCRAFT Product Marketing Conrad Business Supplies, says: “We are delighted to have been able to offer our customers products with the highest quality and comprehensive functionality since 35 years. In the anniversary year of our brand too, we can provide our customers with numerous new and innovative products for the measurement technology sector.”
