Nonferrous Flexible Core AC Current Coil Probe:  7" Inside Diameter Flexible Coil, 3 to 3000A, 24' Cable

Flexible Coil Probe

The probe that can get around anything!

Never again will you have a problem getting around a bundle of cables or a bus bar with a typical split-core current transformer. The solution is here with the Spinlab nonferrous flexible core AC current probe. This unit allows you to easily and safely take current measurements for ratio tests. Simply plug it into the Bird Dog Plus and take your measurements like you would with any other probe. The unit does not have a metal core and is electrically isolated to protect you.

Make in-service ratio, wiring, and burden tests on primary or overhead metering CT's.

Accurate and reliable performance data is difficult to acquire safely, particularly in the hostile high voltage environment encountered in utility distribution systems, including CT rated primary metering sites. Quite often testing is not done, allowing installation error, environmental damage, magnetization and manufacturing defects to go undetected. This can result in serious metering deficiencies --- problems that can add up to critical kilowatt-hour losses to the utility.

The Retriever II Fiber Optic High Voltage Current Probe safely interfaces to the Spinlab 5000 Bird Dog Plus Analyzer to provide the essential current measurements cost conscious utilities need today.  With the Retriever II, it is now possible to make in-service ratio, wiring and burden tests on primary metering CT's.

Plug-In Meter Base Adaptors

Meter Base Adapters

(For a Printable Brochure Click Here)

600-MB1 Plug in Meter Base (Form 3S, 4S) 

Provides both the current and voltage test points for testing installations using Form 3S and 4S Meters. Current test points are self shorting while voltage test points utilize banana jacks and are fused. Normally used on installations where no test switches are installed.

600-MB2 Plug in Meter Base (Form 5S)

Provides both the current and voltage test points for testing installations using Form 5S Meters. Current test points are self shorting while voltage test points utilize banana jacks and are fused. Normally used on installations where no test switches are installed.

600-MB3 Plug in Meter Base (Form 6S, 8S, 9S)

Provides both the current and voltage test points for testing installations using Form 6S, 8S and 9S Meters. Current test points are self shorting while voltage test points utilize banana jacks and are fused. Normally used on installations where no test switches are installed.
