Features



Optic Coupler Option

With this optional Optic-Coupler interface, you can test and program meters without changing heads. Just clamp the head on for testing and forget worrying about aligning optics or detecting creep holes.



Laser Optics

Our advanced laser optics has revolutionized meter testing. This innovative system employs a high intensity light beam that safely delivers highly accurate test results even through meter covers coated in dirt and grime.



Winboard™ Software

A user-friendly interface makes it easy to select test sequences, elements, and service types. The powerful combination of file/graph, test time, and Hyper Sequence™ features gives you total control over all test parameters.




Overview




Model 2150 automated test system is a fully ANSI compliant testboard that uses a single voltage and three independently controlled isolated current sources to test all electromechanical and solid state meters up to 50 Amps. Utilizing a precision laser optics system, the Model 2150 can test meters through the most grime-coated covers with unfailing accuracy. This same laser technology makes it possible to test using the disk’s edge without wasting time with the tricky optics adjustments found with other test systems.


Convenience, functionality, and reliability are at the heart of the Model 2150’s design. Smart Socket™ technology combines extra long socket life, minimal insertion force, and ultra-quiet operation. With the Optic-Coupler option, you can snap the optic-coupler head in place to both test and program meters. Minimal power consumption, weight, and footprint make this testboard ideal for van mounted testing using a power inverter. Test meters using KYZ through cables or directly off the meter stabs, and use the built-in speaker to hear each pulse.



Barcode Option

Attach an optional barcode scanner and printer to your testboard to cut meter processing and data entry time. Scan AEP barcodes on meters with a wave of the barcode scanner to automate the data entry process, or print custom barcodes to automate customer information entry during testing. Either way, the optional barcode scanner and printer will save your shop time and money.



Optic Coupler Option

With this optional Optic-Coupler interface, you can test and program meters without changing heads. Just clamp the head on for testing and forget worrying about aligning optics or detecting creep holes. When the test is complete, you can program the meter without replacing heads. The Optic-Coupler option takes the error and effort out of meter testing and programming.



Laser Optics

Our advanced laser optics has revolutionized meter testing. This innovative system employs a high intensity light beam that safely delivers highly accurate test results even through meter covers coated in dirt and grime. Whether testing off the black mark or through the creep holes, trust our laser optics system to give you the precision that you demand with the ease you deserve.



Winboard™ Software

Unlock the power and flexibility of your testboard with Winboard™ meter testing software. Winboard™ utilizes software “Wizards” to simplify even the most complicated tasks. A strikingly user-friendly interface makes it easy to select test sequences, elements, and service types. The powerful combination of file/graph, test time, and Hyper Sequence™ features gives you total control over all test parameters. Customizable security options and our dedicated customer support team round out this robust software package.



Smart Socket™ Technology

Smart Socket™ technology extends the life of your testboard by mechanically controlling the inserting and removing of meters. Silver and gold connections inside the socket ensure the best connection to the meter under test. A quiet, cutting edge, solenoid motor means reliable, quiet operation with low insertion force.
