We have maintained and developed our in-house skills and
know-how, while occasionally completing our business scope
through external growth. The most recent operation of this type
was in 2015, when we took over the electrochemistry branch
of Heito, a French manufacturer of electrochemical equipment
and probes, adding a new area of expertise to the company's
already vast offering while remaining within the measurement field.
Alongside this industrial focus, our customers have naturally always
remained at the core of our strategy for product development and
performance.
The sales teams of each of our companies, Chauvin Arnoux, Enerdis,
Pyrocontrole and Manumesure, maintain a strong presence in the field to
provide expert advice, custom accompaniment and technical support in
order to achieve the best possible response to your requirements.
Our website, renovated in 2015, has been designed to provide the backing which
our customers have the right to expect, as simply and quickly as possible: precise
product information, documentation, software upgrades, concrete case studies,
training modules, etc.
Today, CHAUVIN ARNOUX is a major player in electrical measurement. Our ambition is
to become a leader in fields which are peripheral to our core business too.

ELECTROCHEMISTRY: COMPLEMENTARITY BETWEEN CHAUVIN ARNOUX
AND MANUMESURE FOR NEW PROSPECTS
A new range of measuring products…
To enhance its offering, the Chauvin Arnoux Group has launched a new range
of electrochemical measuring products: pH-meters, redox, conductivity
meters, oxygen analysers, probes and electrodes. At the beginning of
2015, Heito and Chauvin Arnoux signed an agreement transferring Heito's
electrochemistry business to Chauvin Arnoux.
A wide range of electrodes is also being proposed: pH combination
electrodes, separated electrodes (glass, platinum, silver, references) and
electrodes for conductivity cells.
This agreement is more than a simple takeover of Heito's electrochemical
measurement branch; it is a partnership for the transfer of know-how and
expertise between the two companies.
This new technological expertise, particularly in pH measurement, for which
the products were totally redesigned at the end of 2015, is now marketed
under the Chauvin Arnoux brand.
The Chauvin Arnoux industrial group, founded in 1893, produces these
products on its own sites, and notably in its factories in Normandy where the
new product range will be manufactured.

Manumesure: a complementary offering for
pH measurement
In 2014, Manumesure became the first producer of pH-certified reference
materials (buffer solutions) accredited by COFRAC (French accreditation
committee). Certified reference materials, or reference standards, are
used to trace and ensure the quality of measurement results. They can be
used to calibrate pH-meters and thus qualify their measurements, with
a direct impact on the quality of the results.
These pH reference standards are produced in accordance with the NIST
and IUPAC recommendations and comply with ISO Guide 34. The value of
the reference material is traceable to the hydrogen electrode through the
primary pH reference standard produced by the French National Metrology
and Test Laboratory (LNE).
The COFRAC accreditation obtained by Manumesure's production
laboratory in Meyzieu, France, guarantees that you use reliable, traceable
buffer solutions, enabling you to comply with the standards while ensuring
monitoring of the measurement and test lines.
In addition, to cater to the needs of Chauvin Arnoux's electrochemical
instruments, Manumesure is also working on the launch of new ranges of
electrolytic solutions.
New prospects…
This complementarity between Chauvin Arnoux and Manumesure
is therefore a major advantage for winning new markets in the
electrochemistry field: education, laboratories, R&D centres, industry
and environmental testing organizations…

Enerdis® relays stem the flow!
To highlight Enerdis's expertise through concrete
applications in France and internationally, Enerdis
has developed a new communication tool.
This single-page A4 document takes a customer
requirement as its starting point before presenting
a suitable solution, along with its advantages.
EDF's CIH Hydraulic Engineering Centre faced
problems with untimely switching of the PLC input/
output optocouplers during the storm season on
the dam at Serre-Ponçon (Hautes Alpes, France).
This switching of the optocouplers, which
are particularly sensitive to electromagnetic
disturbances, caused significant operating losses.
Enerdis® therefore proposed a long-term solution
using relays to avoid the effect of induced EMC
disturbances and installed nearly 200 RCME12F
relays with their PAIR085F sockets on the dam.
In the two years since installation of the solution,
no faults have been observed and no untimely
switching of the PLC optocouplers has occurred.

SAVE MONEY BY PERFORMING AN ENERGY AUDIT!
To implement Article 8 (4-6) of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), the UK government has set up ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity
Scheme) which requires large companies to carry out energy assessments in order to identify cost-effective saving measures.
This concerns any company which:
• employs more than 250 people,
• has an annual turnover in excess of €50 million (£38,937,777),
• has an annual balance-sheet total in excess of €43 million (£33,486,489),
• is not covered by an Energy Management System certified as complying with the EN ISO 50001 standard
The goal
By analysing the structures (building, insulation, etc.), users will seek
to assess passive energy efficiency. Then, using high-performance
equipment and smart measurement, test and control systems (variable
speed drives or load-shedding devices), it will be possible to optimize
operation and, more generally, improve active energy efficiency.
Once all the areas of energy consumption have been analysed, it becomes
simple to identify where savings can be made and implement solutions to
achieve improvement in those areas.
The regulatory framework
EN 16247 standard
The EN 16247-1 standard defines the general methodological and quality
requirements for preparation, execution and reporting of the audit.
These methods are defined according to the activity audited:
• for buildings: EN 16247-2:2014
• for industrial processes: EN 16247-3:2014
• for transport: EN 16247-4:2014
In all cases, measurement campaigns are necessary to check the efficiency
of the equipment, the periods when it is used and the real condition of the
building shells.
The report
By 5th December 2015, the companies concerned must have carried out
an audit covering 65% of their energy bills in order to identify the potential
sources of energy savings and, eventually, the audit must cover at least
80% of their energy spending.
When the audit is finished, a report must be presented to the company and
the UK Environment Agency. It must indicate:
The energy audit must be performed in line with the general methodological
and quality requirements regarding preparation, execution and reporting,
as defined by the EN 16247-1 standard.
This will all be done within the framework of an environmental management
system compliant with the EN ISO 14001 standard. Subsequently, the
audit will have to be repeated every four years, covering 80% of energy bills.
• the possibilities for improvement in terms of energy efficiency, as well
as the cost of the improvements and the extent of the potential annual
energy savings, thus giving an idea of the payback period for these
improvements.
If improvements are made, new measurements must be performed to
assess their impact. Measurement plans will be implemented for this
regular monitoring, in compliance with the requirements of the ISO 50001
standard.
Auditors
The audit may be performed by an external service provider or a person
in the company. External service providers are considered competent for
this type of audit if they hold a quality label in the areas covered by the
energy audit (buildings, industrial processes or transport).
In-house staff are considered competent if they have the appropriate skills
to fulfil the requirements of the audit methodology (training, experience,
etc.).

• the scope of the audit performed
• consumption and the type of energy used (electricity, gas, etc.)
IN DEPTH
Electricity consumption
An electricity consumption profile will be established to identify the
improvements needed to reduce consumption.
This can be done by positioning loggers at different points in the electrical
installation.
They should be set up:
• At the level of the main meter
• On the feeders of electrical switchboards
or low-voltage general switchboards
• At the level of the end-equipment
(machines, desktop workstations, heating,
etc.) The quality of the electrical energy is
important for limiting overconsumption.
The following values are measured:
• Voltage and current
• Active power and energy
• Reactive and distorting power and reactive
energy
• Power factor (cos ϕ)
These various values are recorded over different representative periods
(one day, one month, etc.), at a sampling rate which depends on the
system audited (machinery, desktop computing, etc.).
Various measuring instruments can be used to perform these
measurements:
• Current, voltage, power and energy loggers
• Clamp multimeters for measurements on three-phase or single-phase
systems
• Meters
When the audit is finished, a permanent installation must be set up to
ensure regular energy monitoring. This makes it possible to make targeted
improvements and then measure their impact .
The results are then processed by all the departments concerned
(maintenance, production, finance, general management) to reduce and
allocate the genuine cost of the energy.
Thermography to assess the building's energy efficiency
Infrared thermography can be used to reveal heat losses and deduce the useless
extra energy consumption which they represent. These losses are a potential source of
savings. Thermal cameras are ideal for quickly detecting faults and irregularities such
as insulation faults, air infiltration at openings (windows, doors), thermal bridges, leaks,
excessive humidity, etc.
It can also be used to detect faults on electrical installations or mechanical
equipment. In this way, the auditor can quickly diagnose any points which may cause
overconsumption. For example:
• Electrical problems: faulty contacts, overloads, unbalance, etc.
• Mechanical problems: wear points, adjustment errors, poor lubrication.

CEMENT
MANUFACTURING
MARKET
PYROCONTROLE DEVELOPS A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE
OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR CEMENT MANUFACTURERS
The cement manufacturing sector is undergoing significant changes.
Worldwide consumption is growing, driven by demand from emerging
countries. As an essential material for construction, it is one of the world's
leading business sectors.
Keeping as close as possible to the operating requirements of the cement
industry, which is a major consumer of heat energy, the temperature
measurement specialist Pyrocontrole has a developed a range of specific
temperature measurement instruments in response to the constraints of
this severe environment.
Reliable, rugged, dust-resistant, shockproof and capable of withstanding
extreme temperatures, these temperature sensors have been entirely
designed and developed at Pyrocontrole's production plant near Lyon in
France.
Already used by the major players on this market, these sensors offer
astonishing performance in terms of durability, quick implementation
and measurement accuracy.
Smoke-box sensor, flue sensor, conditioning tower sensor, cyclone sensor
for the preheater tower, fuel storage sensor, motor-bearing sensor... from
milling through to storage, these measurement solutions for cement plants
can be used to monitor and control the temperatures at each stage in the
cement production process.
Alongside this temperature measurement offering, in order to provide a
global solution, Pyrocontrole also proposes temperature controllers and
transmitters to keep the whole thermal process under control.
As well as monitoring the manufacturing process, these measurements
also help to reduce energy spending and maintenance costs.
With this cement manufacturing offering, Pyrocontrole is once again
demonstrating its determination to remain at the cutting edge and find
appropriate solutions for each environment, backed by its expert R&D
team.
PRODUCT FOCUS
Multi-point sensor for fuel storage
Fixed onto the process by a flange, the ATEX /
IECEx-qualified multi-point sensor comprises
several Pt100 probes of different lengths.
This multi-point assembly makes it possible
to gather enough information on the thermal
gradation to map any overheating of the
tank sufficiently quickly.
Smoke-box temperature sensor
Installed in the cement plant's smoke box, this sensor
can be used to monitor the temperature of the hot
gases recovered from the rotary kiln and from the
preheater tower, where the temperatures are
close to 1,000°C.
Exceptionally resistant to heat and
corrosion, this thermocouple can
withstand temperatures up to
1,300°C when installed in a
protective sheath.

TEST &
MEASUREMENT
APPLICATIONS
FIRE SAFETY
ELECTRICAL HAZARDS: AVOID HOTSPOTS!
The main causes of fire are ignition of electrical origin (faulty installations, etc.), mechanical overheating, works causing hotspots
(welding, etc.), heating (air circulation, flashback, etc.) and outbreaks of fire on work sites.
Most causes of fire can be avoided by performing measurements in the context of preventive maintenance.
Electrical continuity
Any electrical circuit or element presents a resistance to the current
flowing through it which generates heat. This is called the Joule
effect.
Some companies have drawn up mandatory procedures for the
inspection of electrical cabinets to avoid any problems due to loose or
worn terminals.
Connections are affected by many factors, such as vibrations and
corrosion. The regulations stipulate that connections must be checked
and inspected visually.
The continuity between 2 elements in an installation must show a low
resistance. Otherwise, the current continues to cause overheating until
the cables and connectors involved deteriorate, creating a hotspot which
significantly increases the probability of fire breaking out.
MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR THESE VERIFICATIONS:
• Installation testers which measure continuity.
• Infrared cameras or thermometers for detecting isolated hotspots.
Insulation
The insulation between any terminals which do not have the same
potential (phase/earth or phase/
phase) must be measured.
The critical points in older electrical installations are caused by ageing of
the protective devices and, above all, overloading of the circuits.
Insulation failure may lead to
arcing between two points
involving sparks which could set
light to the materials around the
point of failure.
Overload currents cause the temperature to rise in the conductors, thus
degrading their insulants and ageing them prematurely.
MEASURING INSTRUMENT
USED:
Overloads
• Insulation tester
The function of protective devices is to protect installations against
overloads, but they are sometimes oversized compared with other
elements in the installation, so they become weak points.
DEDICATED MEASURING INSTRUMENT:
• Infrared camera:
the quickest and simplest
solution is to inspect electrical
installations by means of infrared
thermography.
A thermal camera can be used to
detect any abnormally hot areas
which could cause fires, as well
as any temperature disparities on
production lines.
12
Voltage drop
A voltage drop on an installation may mean that the cross-section of the
cable is insufficient. The conductor cable may then overheat until it melts
or catches fire.
MEASURING INSTRUMENT USED:
• Installation tester such as the C.A 6117
DID YOU KNOW?
When a current flows through a circuit, the circuit
presents a resistance to the current which may cause
overheating. This is called the Joule effect.
TEST &
MEASUREMENT
APPLICATIONS
Electric machines
MEASURING INSTRUMENTS USED:
All electrically-powered machines may cause fire. AC dielectric
measurement can be used to check the behaviour of these machines in
the event of a voltage surge.
MEASURING INSTRUMENT USED:
• C.A 6155 multi-function machine tester
Harmonics
If a harmonic current is flowing in the cables, the
heat loss due to the Joule effect will increase.
In the case of a three-phase installation including
a neutral conductor, the loads may cause triplen
harmonics.
A distorted signal due to a "non-linear"
load, such as a computer, includes multiple
harmonics with multiple frequencies.
Triplen harmonics corresponding to the 3
phases are added together and create a
current in the neutral. There may even be
a higher current in the neutral than in the
most heavily loaded of the phases. These harmonics may cause heating of
the transformers, cables, motors, generators and capacitors connected to
the same power supply as the devices generating the harmonics.
This type of phenomena has already caused fires in poorly-protected
factories.
MEASURING INSTRUMENTS USED:
• F407 power and harmonics clamp
• Network quality analysers:
determine the total harmonic
distortion. These instruments
decompose the voltage and
current signals and then
calculate the RMS value of
each frequency in the signal.
A Qualistar will also indicate
the total distorting current (or
voltage) to allow correct sizing of
an anti-harmonic filter.
Smoke ventilation
Smoke is one of the major harmful consequences of fire and controlling
it should be therefore be considered just as important as extinguishing
the fire, due to the dangers and hazards which it causes… Extractor fans
are commonly installed in structures such as shopping centres, tunnels,
car parks and other buildings with large areas, as well as in industrial
warehouses where the risk of fire is relatively high…
The air safety and quality standards are the most important factors for
ventilation projects in tunnels and other underground premises, whether
they involve new structures or the improvement of older buildings to
ensure compliance with the standards.
The air flow-rate of a ventilation system needs to be measured to
check its actual operation and ensure that the flow-rates required from the
installation are achieved, so that any faults can be identified.
The tests are defined by the manufacturers of the smoke control systems,
but the inspection intervals are clearly defined in specific standards.
• C.A 1224 thermo-anemometer: air flow-rate measurement.
• C.A 1510 CO2 logger: continuous measurement of CO2 levels in
ambient air with alarm if the thresholds are exceeded.
ATEX environment
For an explosion to occur, three elements need to be present: combustible
gas or dust, oxygen and an ignition source.
The purpose of a secondary explosion prevention system is to avoid
ignition sources.
For manufacturers of protective devices and systems, this means that
they must develop and build their equipment and installations so that they
cannot generate an ignition source, even in the event of a fault.
THE EXPLOSION
TRIANGLE
Combustible
substance
EXPLOSION
Oxygen
Ignition source
Hazardous substances are used in a range of industries: petrochemicals,
agri-food, pharmaceuticals, recycling, chemicals.
In the European Union, all aspects of protection against explosions are
governed by the ATEX directives on explosive atmospheres. ATEX is
not the name used for a single directive. It is a generic term covering the
two directives on protection against explosions: 94/9/CE (ATEX 95) and
1999/92/CE (ATEX 137).
European directive 94/9/CE concerns instruments, components and
protective systems intended for use in explosive zones.
Only ATEX-certified equipment can be used in "Explosive Atmosphere"
areas. ATEX compliance can be assessed by an ATEX Notified Body or
self-certified as compliant by the manufacturer itself, depending on the
instrument category. Instruments present in areas in explosive areas must
fulfil specific conditions.
ATEX-CERTIFIED MEASURING
INSTRUMENTS:
• The MX57Ex multimeter can be used for
professional measurements, giving accurate results
even in difficult environments.
With its IP67 protection and various certifications
for explosive areas, the M57Ex is ATEX-certified and
designed for use in hazardous environments, including
gas and dust explosive environments in the following
conditions: Mines: category I M2, Surface industries:
category 2 (gas and dust) I I 2GD, etc.

TRI 700S TRANSFORMERS FOR TARIFF METERING
Wrong definition of the accuracy class for a measurement winding
inevitably leads to incorrect energy billing and therefore financial losses
either for the distributor or for the customer.
The wrong accuracy class can cost you a lot of money!
The Enerdis transformers in the TRI 700S range offer a 0.2s accuracy
class and are approved by ENEDIS (EDF's distribution arm) for tariff
metering.
• Class 1 CT: ±120,000 kWh or ±€12,000
®
Designed to meet ENEDIS's tariff metering requirements, the TRI 700S
range of current transformers is particularly suitable for electronic meters
(3.5 and 7.5 VA power ratings).
The example below illustrates the financial impact of a CT's accuracy
class. If your consumption is 12,000 MWh/year at a rate of €0.10/kWh:
• Class 0.5 CT: ±60,000 kWh or ±€6,000
• Class 0.2S CT: ±2,500 kWh or ±€2,500
Note: the calculation does not take into account the accuracy class
of the measuring instrument or the line losses in the network cables.
These three-phase transformers are compliant with the IEC 60044-1
standard and are available in bi and tri-rating versions up to 500 A / 5 A.
For distributors, this helps to optimize storage space and, for operators,
there is no longer any need to change your transformer if your installation
evolves.
Manufactured entirely in our factories in Normandy, France (electronics in
Villedieu-les-Poêles, plastics in Vire), these transformers benefit from
exceptional quality features.
• Primary connection by 50 to 240 mm² cable clips
• Copper or aluminium primary conductor
• Built-in short-circuit
• Individual test certificate supplied as a standard feature

voltage and resistance measurements. These essential tools will find a
place in everyone's toolbox, from installers and self-employed electricians
to simple amateurs!
Their compact casing with magnetized sheath fits in one hand and can
be used hands-free, even in electrical cabinets. The patented Multifix
mounting system is ideal for use with these multimeters, allowing you to
hook it onto a cabinet door or your belt or suspend it...
The stand ensures easy reading however the multimeter is positioned.
Readings are made even clearer by the blue backlighting of the display
(4,000 or 6,000 counts depending on the model). The built-in torch
means the multimeter can be used even in the dark.
In
addition
to
the
traditional
measurements
(voltage,
current,
resistance, capacitance, etc.), the MTX
200 models can measure temperature
via a K thermocouple contact sensor
delivered as standard.
This means users can perform:
• electrical maintenance
• initial troubleshooting on PCBs
• verification of radiator control,
etc.
The rotary switch offers one function per position. On the front panel,
3 keys are all you need to access all the various functions.
The 600 V CAT III, IP54 double-well input terminals are easily accessible.
Safe working is guaranteed in all circumstances by the NCV function:
the screen becomes red if a voltage is present. Electrical maintenance
is optimized thanks to the VLowZ low-impedance voltage measurement
function which eliminates stray voltages. This function is particularly
useful for maintenance work in offices or tertiary buildings, where there is
a lot of computer equipment present.

PEL105 all-terrain power & energy logger
Chauvin Arnoux® is completing its range of PEL Series loggers
with the latest model for energy auditing or spot measurements
on electrical networks.
The PEL 105 logger is particularly simple to use with an all-terrain
IP67 casing capable of withstanding shocks, UV rays and extreme
temperatures. It is ideal for outdoor installation directly on an electricity
pole. This logger was developed in the Group's R&D laboratories in France
and manufactured on the production sites in Normandy, like the Group's
other product ranges. With its 1,000 V CAT IV safety rating, it can be
used for measurements on all LV networks, including measurements of
the neutral-earth voltage and the neutral current.
This stand-alone instrument is equipped with a self-powering system
via its voltage inputs up to 1,000 V. The PEL 105 offers 5 voltage inputs
and 4 current inputs. Compatible with a large number of current sensors
to make it easier to use, it also recognizes the sensors automatically.
The PEL 105 can be used to measure, record and analyse the power
values (W, var, VA) and energy values (kWh, kvarh, kVAh). At the same
time, it records the PF and the DPF. Recording is continuous with a
sampling interval of 200 ms.
To improve energy efficiency according to ISO 50001 or carry out
the audits required by the regulations, the PEL 105 can be set up on
the different electrical feeders. It can then be used, simply and without
downtime, to assess the relative weight of each line as a proportion of
overall consumption, define a load profile for the installation and thus
determine the priorities for improvement.
The measurements can be analysed and reports can be generated
via the DataView® software platform.
