Why to buy Omicron CPC 100 and TD1?

The Omicron CPC 100 and TD1:

Primary and Secondary Test Kit for Power Transformer.


The Omicron CPC 100 is a powerful software tool that allows for carrying out various tests on a substation.

It can be likened to a multi-purpose test equipment due to its patented primary injection test system.

This eliminates the need for having many individual test tools thereby reducing transportation and training cost as well.

As a result of this, the CPC100 becomes the ideal equipment for performing tests on and maintaining substation assets.

These features are what make the CPC 100 the instrument of choice in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The CPC 100 is a versatile piece of intelligent tool and serves as a base for additional accessories such as TD1.

What this does is that it allows for increased testing capabilities and applications using the Omicron CPC100 and TD1.

Some examples include tests on voltage transformers, current transformers, circuit breakers and applications such as power factor/dissipation measurements.
