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%

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.

Heron dipper-Tough Is Ready For Harsh Deployments

For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.
