Fluke's automated and traceable Calibration 6135A/PMUCAL Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) Calibration System is an integrated system that can complete 600 tests and certify a PMU configuration in less than one day.
Fluke's automated and traceable Calibration 6135A/PMUCAL Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) Calibration System is designed for manufacturers as well national metrology institutes, third party calibration houses, and electrical utilities.
The 6135A/PMUCAL is an integrated system of six components that completes the approximately 600 tests that certify a PMU configuration meets the latest performance standards of the IEEE Standard for Synchrophasor Measurements for Power Systems (IEEE C37.118.1:2011 and IEEE C37.242). The system completes the tests in 6 to 12 hours, versus two-to-six weeks with manual test methods. And because it's an automated system, even non-experts can start using it quickly to perform a complete complement of required tests.
The system, which is mounted in a 19-inch rack with an integrated test connection panel, includes a server PC, GPS receiver, system timing unit, and three-phase 6135A Electrical Power Standard. It also includes calibration software that allows users to create and store personality profiles for the PMUs tested frequently, as well as run full certification tests and a wide range of automated and interactive tests.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
