Fluke 430 Series II three-phase power quality analysers

Monday, 26 March, 2012 | Supplied by: Fluke Australia Pty Ltd

The Fluke 430 Series II three-phase power quality analysers are designed to directly measure and calculate the cost of energy wasted in electrical systems due to power quality issues.The tools use a patented algorithm to measure energy waste and quantify its cost. It also lets facilities assess the impact of new energy-efficient, electronically-driven systems, from lighting and motor controls to HVAC.

With the Unified Power function (developed from the algorithm), electricians, utility technicians, electrical engineers, field service technicians and energy consultants can automatically determine how much power is being wasted and calculate exactly, with a single handheld tool, what this extra consumption costs.

The tool has the ability to automatically quantify the energy wasted by harmonics and unbalance and, by inputting the utility rate structure, the user can calculate the monetary cost of the wasted energy.

The Inverter Efficiency function simultaneously measures the input and output power of inverters in solar systems, wind turbines and uninterrupted power supplies, letting the operator see how much electricity the inverter itself is consuming and whether it is operating efficiently.

The 435 model includes PowerWave, a 'fast capture' system that displays waveforms, half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail so motor and generator operators can measure the interaction during switching operations. This allows facility and utility service electricians, electrical contractors and generator suppliers to easily gather measurements, with one tool, for motor and generator commissioning and start-up testing and load profiling, to prevent motor/drive/load mismatches.

All the models in the series have up to 32 GB (8 GB standard) memory, a swappable SD memory card and USB connectivity for longer power, energy logging and faster data download. Screen quality and battery life are both improved and the accompanying software has been redesigned to give users more options to analyse both power quality and consumption. Both models are fully compliant with the stringent international IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A standard. Each one can monitor systems with up to ten power quality parameters, on one screen, and can record up to 150 parameters on 4 phases simultaneously, in accordance with the EN50160 standard, and are safety rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III.
