Super Beast Pulse- Pulsing 20 amp load - HJA-469-P - HJA-469-PSCO | HJ Arnett Industries | Service Conductor Tester | (503) 692-4600NEW! Pulsing Feature

After using the Super Beast to test per normal application, the new feature allows the unit to pulse the 20A load ON/OFF every 5 seconds. The user may utilize an ammeter, a common field tool for measuring amps, positioned around the secondary pedestals or the padmount transformer to identify the 20A raise/fall, indicating the conductor tested by the Super Beast.  This pulsing feature allows single-user cable identification, cutting down the manpower needed to troubleshoot power issues. With the Pulse attached to the meter socket, the troubleshooter uses an ammeter and looks for a 20 amp rise and fall at the different connection points (See Below, Points of Connection Diagram)

History

The Beast of Burden is the original service conductor tester from HJ Arnett Industries, invented nearly 50 years ago. It has since developed into what is now the Super Beast, Mega Beast, Mega Beast 240, and Mini Beast. Originally 10 amps, the Beast of Burden had a black face plate. Utilities have expressed the need for more amps, so we upgraded the 10 amp Beast to the 20 amp Super Beast. For years the Super Beast was only available with analog meters. We released the exact same Super Beast with digital meters to satisfy customers’ demand. Likewise, the Mega Beast was introduced to the utility industry as a result of a California utility’s expressed need for even more amps. The idea is that with more amps, troubleshooters can save time identifying problems. Our newest Beast is the Pulse. It has an added feature that the Beasts don’t, which is to pulse the load every 5 seconds, see the video above. We listen to customer feedback and welcome you to approach us with any thoughts, improvements, and suggestions.
