AMS Corporation

Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation (AMS) specializes in testing the instrumentation and control systems of nuclear power plants. AMS provides equipment, training, and services.

AMS provides the world-wide nuclear power industry with equipment, training, and services to verify the performance of process instrumentation systems, verify the proper operation of rod control systems, test for cable and connector problems, assist with management of aging of cables, perform vibration analysis, and apply the well-known noise analysis techniques for reactor diagnostics, and detection of blockages and voids in the reactor coolant system. Our Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Facility supports the nuclear industry with EMC qualification of equipment for installation in a plant. We also provide field EMC services and EMI/RFI Troubleshooting. AMS offers a number of courses in the area of process instrumentation, I&C maintenance, I&C aging management, online monitoring, equipment and process condition monitoring, and related subjects.
