ITM adds NI-9244 compatibility to iTestSystem

 

We are pleased to announce that the NI-9244 single ended voltage input module can now be used with iTestSystem and NI CompactDAQ. The NI-9244 features 3 voltage inputs plus 1 neutral input, 24-bit resolution, 400 Vrms L-N, 800 Vrms L-L, 50 kS/s/ch,  in the C Series form factor.  The wide measurement range (400Vrms L-N or 800Vrms L-L) makes it ideal for high-voltage measurement applications such as phasor measurements, power metering, power quality monitoring, industrial machinery, motor testing, and transient or harmonic analysis with high-speed (50kHz) simultaneous sampling.

For advice about using the NI-9244 in stand-a-lone power quality applications or cRIO power monitoring applications contact Mark Yeager or Matt Satcher.

2018 Finalist for Cincinnati Business Couriers’s Outstanding Green Innovation Award

On April 19th ITM was recognized as a finalist for the Cincinnati Business Courier Outstanding Green Innovation award.  This award recognizes an innovative product or project with clear potential to transform overall energy and environmental performance.  ITM’s President Tim Carlier was on hand to receive the finalist award on behalf of the development team that produced the innovative Sootblower Fouling Detection (SFD) technology.

ITM’s SFD technology helps energy producers generate power more efficiently by detecting energy sapping soot buildup in power and recovery boilers.  More information about this technology is located @ iTestSystem.com/sfd.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists and thank you to the Cincinnati Business Courier for hosting this event.
