Shifting important segments of test control from the operator to the prover allows its "smarts" to electronically configure the entire meter-corrector-prover system for the fastest run time possible.
Because the tests are run with the corrector remaining attached to the meter, the number of runs may be as low as two for the meter plus one for the meter-corrector combination, or a total of three minutes of overall run time. While the reduction will vary depending on gas company test standards, it may range from 37-228 minutes leading to another $37-228 in savings.
In exchange for longer run times, however, most NiMH batteries can be charged only about 300 to 500 times, up to 50 percent less than nicads.
For a longer run time, don't automatically choose a higher-voltage tool.
NiMH batteries boast a 30 percent to 50 percent longer run time than traditional nickel-cadmium (nicad) batteries.
"Right now, if you want a longer run time, you go for a bigger battery," says Kolbeck.
