Fluke's 430 Series II three-phase power quality analyzers use an algorithm to measure energy waste
Fluke's 430 Series II three-phase power quality analyzers use an algorithm to measure energy waste and quantify its cost. The 430 Series II helps facilities reduce electrical power consumption and improve the performance and lifespan of electro-mechanical equipment by providing the ROI justification to mitigate power quality distortion.
The updated 430 Series II models feature three measurement functions as well as hardware, software and firmware improvements. New models have up to 32 GB (8 GB standard) memory, a swappable SD memory card and USB connectivity. Both models are fully compliant with the 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.
The Unified Power function on the 430 Series II is designed to allow users 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 430 Series II Inverter Efficiency function simultaneously measures the input and output power of inverters in solar systems, wind turbines and uninterrupted power supplies.
The 435 model includes PowerWave, a “fast capture” system that displays waveforms and half-cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail. This allows facility and utility service electricians, electrical contractors, and generator suppliers to gather measurements for load profiling, to prevent motor/drive/load mismatches, and for motor and generator commissioning and start-up testing.
