«COMPANO 100 is not a simple test device, but the way it communicates with the user has been simplified, and that’s what I like.» Serhat Tutal, Marke Elektronik, Türkiye Serhat Tutal: “In Türkiye, COMPANO 100 is the right product at the right time. The electrical grid structure in our country was split into generation, transmission, and distribution roughly 25 years ago. As a result, the distribution sector has to cope with the loss of test experience in some cases. Furthermore, distribution utilities rent the grid from the government for a specific period of time. Therefore, some of them have a limited budget for testing. With its multi-functionality and easy-to-use user interface, COMPANO 100 is the perfect match for this industry in Türkiye. Large utilities use this device intensively in their daily business. For example, we delivered 125 units to Enerjisa. This is an impressive demonstration of the fact that customers with simpler applications can also benefit from the quality that OMICRON is known for. This is also true of COMPANO 100’s battery – we’ve had zero battery-related complaints. Of course, battery operation is a game-changer. In my opinion, continuous software improvements and the great teamwork we’ve experienced with OMICRON are also important factors for success. Thanks to this, our customers benefit from outstanding after-sales support, for example, when they need a loaner test set quickly. I’m very optimistic about the future of COMPANO 100 in Türkiye. With its wide application range, it’s a perfect match for distribution utilities and an ideal fit for industrial plants.” ROCKING THE MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA COMPANO 100 captures new markets in a flash Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Türkiye are four countries with very different power system infrastructure and diverse testing requirements. Still, one commonality is the interest of the energy sector in the small, battery-operated COMPANO 100. The feedback from many enthusiastic customers confirms that the device meets a whole slew of different basic testing applications perfectly. Why is that? We talked to our Sales Partners in the Middle East and Africa and asked them why the compact test set is in such high demand. High demand in Türkiye: Marke Elektronik had to empty their biggest meeting room to cope with the large amount of devices ready for delivery to their customers. 14
