Features



Turbo Test™

Slash the amount of time it takes to test a supported meter on the 2350 three-phase testboards to nearly one fifth of regular testing time. Save your shop valuable time and money with the Turbo Test™ option.



Winboard™ Software

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.



Smart Socket™ Technology

A quiet, cutting-edge solenoid motor means reliable, quiet operation with minimal insertion force.



Overview




In today’s high-tech meter shops and high-output manufacturing plants, getting an accurate meter test fast increases overall workflow, keeping your company operating in the black. Our line of premier test equipment combines over a quarter century of meter industry experience with a vision of innovation to bring you industry leading test solutions.



The Model 2350 sets the benchmark for precision and functionality in today’s meter testing industry. This versatile testboard provides fully ANSI compliant testing using either a single or three-phase voltage and current up to 50 Amps. Three-phase power combined with the file/graph capabilities of  Winboard™ software gives you the power to test today’s meters with any combination of voltage phase angles, current imbalances, phase angle imbalances and frequencies in .001Hz steps. With the revolutionary Turbo Test™ option, you can run simultaneous series and element tests and increase the productivity of your meter shop five-fold*.



Our advanced laser optics system is safe but powerful enough to drive through the dirtiest covers while still delivering the precision you demand. Coupled with three removable digital reference standards, the Model 2350 boasts unparalleled traceability, reliability, and accuracy. This testboard package is rounded out with Smart Socket™ technology, KYZ inputs, optional barcode scanner, optional Optic-Coupler system, plus a two-year warranty†. The Model 2350 is the ideal tool for today’s cutting-edge meter shops or manufacturing environments.



* Actual test time increase dependent on the manufacturer of the meter under test
† One year overseas.

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.



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.



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.



Turbo Test™

We have worked hand-in-hand with the industry’s leading meter manufacturers to bring you Turbo Test™ technology. Slash the amount of time it takes to test a supported meter on either the 2300 or 2350 three-phase testboards to nearly one fifth of regular testing time. Save your shop valuable time and money with the Turbo Test™ option.



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 minimal insertion force.
