VESTA System Highlights
VESTA’s software is an open design with a communications DLL provided to customers (with executed NDA) allowing them to easily interface into existing systems. The goal is for customers to design new applications which can be distributed to other customers for enhanced flexibility. All AEP bar codes are already loaded into the database and can be easily modified. The heart of VESTA is its true 3-Phase 100 Amp standard, which also has a voltage and current output. The combination of pulses, volts and amps provides a dual reference for accuracy. The voltage and current amplifiers are Type AB Audio amplifiers, which provide distortion-free sine waves. The jaw system is truly unique compared to those used by our competitors. The jaws are motor driven and very quiet. Other manufacturers use coils which make a loud noise when opening and closing.
Everything in Vesta is controllable and programmable. All timers used for settling with electronic meters are variable to minimize testing time. The optical probe can be used to test the meter and communicate with the meter via the manufacturers software. Programming Vesta to test a meter and then reset registers can be accomplished without changing the probe or moving the pulse pick up arm. With electronic meters, there is no need for a pulse pick up arm. VESTA has a user defined data export function with which data can be exported in CSV or text file from the SQL database.
