Primary Application: Streetlighting
The Problem: When a large utility carried out a streetlight installation project, they needed to quickly verify the installation (make sure the lights turn on) without having to wait for it to get dark.
The solution: Apply a light load to the service to verify proper installation/lights turn on.
Smaller and more affordable than the Super Beast, the Mini Beast is quick and easy to use. Isolate street light ballasts and transformers to verify 120V circuit connection. Validate transformer installation and power quality, or troubleshoot 120V, 2-wire system setup and connection. 8 Amp load quickly veriﬁes circuit installation.
Simply connect the voltage clip to the secondary (120V) side of transformer and neutral clip to the neutral line. The volt meter will show the line voltage without a load. Flip switch to apply load, and compare the voltage readings under load.
