Accurate and reliable performance data is difficult to acquire safely, particularly in the hostile high voltage environment encountered in utility distribution systems, including CT rated primary metering sites. Quite often testing is not done, allowing installation error, environmental damage, magnetization and manufacturing defects to go undetected. This can result in serious metering deficiencies - problems that can add up to critical kilowatt-hour losses to the utility.

The Retriever II Fiber Optic High Voltage Current Probe safely interfaces to the Spinlab 5000 Bird Dog Plus Analyzer to provide the essential current measurements cost conscious utilities need today. With the Retriever II, it is now possible to make in-service ratio, wiring, and burden tests on primary metering CTs
