Valley Forge’s Megger Donates Equipment to New Mexico Community College
Valley Forge’s Megger has donated a Digital Low-Resistance Ohmmeter to help wind energy students at Mesalands Community College, writes Lauren Tyler for North American Wind Power.
The new DLRO200 Microohmmeter is being used by the school to enhance the curriculum and training in its wind energy technology program. The DLRO200 is a multipurpose piece of equipment that can test currents between 10 and 200 amps. In addition, it is easily portable making it simple to move between tests.
Director of U.S. distribution sales for Megger, David S. Danner, has been working closely with Mesalands for the past nine years. This has helped ensure the students in the wind energy technology program have high-quality electrical testing equipment at their disposal. This will better prepare them for a career in this booming industry.
“We are proud to donate the DLRO200, a leading-edge, low-resistance ohmmeter that promotes the highest quality in accuracy, reliability and, above all, safety,” said Danner.
Andy Swapp, a teacher in the wind energy technology faculty at Mesalands, expressed his appreciation for the donation.
“The DLRO200 is a valuable and highly specialized piece of equipment. Our students are using the DLRO200 donated by Megger to familiarize themselves with the equipment and to practice safety procedures.”
