Details

This Digital Insulation Resistance Tester will measure insulation resistance from 800k ohms to 500G ohms using dynamic auto-ranging technology. Test voltages range from 500V to 10kV in 500 volt steps. It also employs an auto-discharge utility: upon completion of a test, the instrument will automatically discharge all capacitive and inductive circuits charged by the tester. The discharge can be observed on the instrument's bargraph display.

 

When the instrument is first powred on, a test circuit applies a heavy current draw on the batteries for a few seconds and measures the voltage in order to determine the capacity of the battreries. A bar graph displays the voltage that is stressing the insulation during the first 30 seconds of a test and during the discharge of the circuits at the end of the test. The display will also show the elapsed time from the start of the test and the total time, even after the testing has stopped.

  • Insulation Resistance: 800kΩ to 500GΩ ( Autoranging )
  • Resolution: 1kΩ
  • Basic Accuracy: ±5%

Minnesota Water Quality Certification Program Encourages Sustainable Farming Practices

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , agriculture is the leading probable source of impairments to assessed streams and rivers in the United States, and the third probable source to lakes. Agricultural impairments, typically considered nonpoint source pollution, include irrigation and stormwater runoff that carries animal waste, bacteria, fertilizer, naturally occurring metals, nutrients, pesticides, excess salt, and sediment. Unfortunately, this has at times positioned farmers—a group which has the most to gain from water quality initiatives—at odds with environmental agencies and scientists.

E. Coli in the Los Angeles River: How Much is Too Much for Recreational User Exposure?

Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other agencies have already answered this question by setting guidelines for E. coli limits in water used for recreational purposes, the question is again being debated in Los Angeles. This is because the city adopted a new protocol in October of 2017 that mandates closing the Los Angeles River to recreational users whenever E. coli levels are too high. E. coli in the Los Angeles River The City of Los Angeles approved the new river protocol which was developed by the City of Los Angeles Department of Sanitation (LA SAN), the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office, the Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

Can Better Technologies Save Endangered California Salmon?

Up until the 1800s, salmon were so plentiful in California that these “ bits of silver pulled out of the water ” could be observed ascending the waterways, thousands at a time, each season. However, decades of logging, the construction of dams, and other human interventions have changed the waterways of the state so significantly that the range of the salmon has been permanently altered. Now, a team of scientists collaborating through the Interagency Ecological Program have developed a plan to improve salmon management and, hopefully, help save the species. Team members from NOAA Fisheries, the California Department of Water Resources, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S.
