Measuring, power & protection solutions -Measuring componentry for capital equipment protection

The accurate and correct measurement, control and protection of the AC and DC power systems within an installation is critical. The AC is the workhorse of the power distribution network whilst the DC is the backup that secures the communication and recording until the AC returns.

TVR Instruments, an experienced and knowledgeable distributor of electrical measuring instruments for the measurement, protection and controls of AC and DC power networks, focuses on both networks to assist in supporting their resilience.

The team concentrates on the delivery of electrical measuring instruments for measuring, power and protection solutions applications, predominantly in the LVD distribution and panel building sector. Its full suite of electrical measuring instruments includes multifunction meters, current transformers, voltage transformers, shunts, transducers, energy meters (MID), ELR, protection relays, battery chargers, power supplies, DC UPS, remote monitoring and ventilation control systems. The protection devices available for purchase specifically cover loss of mains G99/G98, temperature, frequency and phase sequence (to name a few core examples).

TVR Instruments will work assiduously to propose the most appropriate electrical measuring instruments for the job in hand and ensure continued reassurance with their first-rate level of service. Their European suppliers are also backed up by industry recognised accreditation, as all products are made under ISO9001 quality certified factories in accordance with the relevant CE marking directives (EMC and LVD).

“We are a service provider with a customer focused ethos,” Tony Robinson, owner of TVR Instruments, commented. “Our strategy revolves around delivering as good a customer service as possible, offering suitable units for control and display from our extensive product range. We remain focused on clients’ specific requirements whilst taking the time to understand their situation, providing a solution ideal for the individual application.

“All our suppliers work rigorously to remain compliant with all of the necessary industry standards and up to date regulations. With our high quality products, we can provide short lead times and close application support. The closeness of the production facilities allows for direct real time support and application development.”

The product portfolio is made up of reputable European based manufacturers as well as Emko Elektronik in Turkey from whom we source and supply a range of genset controller and process control instruments. TVR Instruments is the UK and Ireland agent for Frer s.r.l of Italy for all switchboard measuring components and a stockist of Adel Systems battery chargers & power supplies. It is also a stockist of Ziehl Industrie-elektronik GmbH for mains, temperature and transformer protection relays.

Amongst the electrical measuring instruments lines TVR is offering is the Frer QUBO96 range of Multifunction meters with options for inbuilt communications for remote monitoring, Ethernet with onboard memory and an updated earth leakage relay compliant to EN60947-2 (types A&B) and EN62423:2013 (types F&E) and the XTDB022006 6mA DC Residual Direct Current Monitoring Module according to IEC62955 for Electric Vehicle charging.

For remote monitoring and logging off energy consumption at up to 2000 monitored points is the Frerlogger software package.  The Frerlogger package is a package installed and controlled inside the firewall of the facility.  There is no need for remote access or for cloud storage.  This offers an additional level of security and reduced cost for the owner. Updates are free and provided to the owner direct from Frer. Frer manufacture a range of energy meters with a simple compatibility to Frerlogger via Ethernet, MODbus or USB interfaces.

With its experience providing instrumentation across both Europe and the Middle East, TVR Instruments is experienced in the source and supply of competitively priced electrical measuring instruments for use within the switchboard and control panel market.
