A majority of the 400 attendees at this year’s PowerTest 2013 event, which is organized by the InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA), voted to give the Circuit Breaker Analyzer the award based on the technical presentation given by co-developer and president of Group CBS, Finley Ledbetter.

“We’re honored to be chosen by the PowerTest 2013 attendees for this prestigious award,” says Ledbetter. “It’s a privilege to be recognized by your peers for hard work. But while I was able to give the presentation, this award is really a reflection of the incredible commitment and expertise of our engineering team and everyone at Group CBS and Circuit Breaker Analyzer.”

Using the accelerometer inside every iPhone, new-model iPod, and select industrial handheld tablets, the award-winning Circuit Breaker Analyzer captures vibration data in all three axes as well as across time. By comparing the newly acquired vibration signature to a database of more than approximately 200 known good profiles (KGP) and/or the vibration signature of the breaker’s “first trip” operation, pattern recognition algorithms can determine when changes in the “envelope” or shape of the vibration signature indicate a hidden mechanical problem that will eventually lead to breaker failure if left unchecked.

Product benefits include:

• Simple operation
• Minimal training
• Portability
• No modification of the circuit breaker is needed
• No electrical connections required
• Removal of the circuit breaker from its mounting or cubicle is not necessary
• Testing can be performed during routine switching
• Data is easily transmitted to a central location

The Circuit Breaker Analyzer is designed for use by technicians with any level of experience and costs a fraction of standard electrical test equipment. For more information, please visit www.cbanalyzer.com, email info@CBAnalyzer.com, or call 972-250-2500.
