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.

Notable Specifications:
  • Insulation Resistance: 800kΩ to 500GΩ ( Autoranging )
  • Resolution: 1kΩ
  • Basic Accuracy: ±5%
  • Test Voltages: 500VDC to 10kVDC (adjustable in 500V steps)
  • Preset Buttons: 1kV, 2.5kV, 5kV, 10kV

Buttonbush Swamps, Bald Eagles, Soras and More: Ashland University’s Black Fork River Wetlands Environmental Studies Center Showcases Wetlands Wildlife and Habitats

Growing from a 38-acre purchase in 1998 to 298 acres in 2004 to the 305 acres it encompasses today; the Black Fork River Wetlands features habitats not found just anywhere, including buttonbush swamp, swamp forest, marsh, riparian corridor and uplands habitats. Beavers make their homes there, as well as trumpeter swans, bald eagles, soras and sandhill cranes. While it may seem picturesque and undisturbed, it is in fact embattled due to human activity on all sides. “It’s a multi-use area,” says Jenna Binder, a visiting Assistant Professor in Ashland University’s Biology and Toxicology Department. “It’s strongly influenced by the heavy agriculture in this area of Ohio. Oil and gas industry fracking is also being done in the area.

AS IF: North Carolina Biological Station Inspires Researchers and Artists to New Heights

Biological field stations make it possible for researchers all over the country to conduct environmental research. While some field stations have artist residencies, art is typically not the main focus of the biological station. Not so at Bakersville, North Carolina’s new AS IF Center (Art + Science In The Field) , which just opened its doors in March 2018. At AS IF, researchers and artists are deliberately invited to commingle, collaborate and create new things together. Far from being on the periphery or existing as an afterthought, artists are considered to be on parity with researchers at AS IF, the one energized by the other’s perspective.

Floating, Diving Robots in the Southern Ocean

The polar regions of the world have always a challenge for scientists to explore and study. Even logistics that are typically no more than passing concerns under other circumstances such as transportation become major problems during polar wintertime. Now, r esearchers are reporting on their use of hundreds of oceanic floats that are drifting and diving their way through the Southern Ocean, including under its ice, with surprising results. Happy robotic wanderers EM spoke with Dr. Alison Gray , assistant professor of physical oceanography at the University of Washington , to find out more about the work, the robots, and the significance of the findings in improving our understanding of the global climate and this poorly studied region.
