Electrical loggers for energy savings

October 2020 Electrical Power & Protection

Energy is a significant cost at any industrial facility, and while managers view energy as an unavoidable expense, it is really a variable cost that can be monitored and managed to improve bottom line performance.

Comtest’s Fluke 1732/1734 three-phase energy loggers are powerful tools designed to easily identify sources of electrical energy waste. Easy setup and use allow the capture of key energy measurements such as voltage, current, power and power factor, as well as other variables, i.e., temperature. The loggers enable managers to understand energy usage and correlate it to activities. They are also Fluke Connect compatible and data can be viewed from anywhere via the Fluke Connect mobile app, potentially reducing the number of times a technician must open a panel while wearing full protective equipment.

With the Fluke 1732 and 1734, facility managers and electricians are able to:

• Easily identify wasted energy to reduce energy bills.

• Perform energy studies over a range of electrical power and energy parameters.

• Perform simple current-only load studies.

• Perform advanced energy and load studies with connected data from Fluke Connect modules.

“Energy use in industrial plants is one of the most important areas where costs can be reduced, yet most facility managers are not even aware of how their energy is consumed,” said Paul de la Port, president of Fluke Industrial Group. “The Fluke 1732 and 1734 energy loggers deliver a complete picture that identifies opportunities for savings and provides actionable data to reduce energy costs to improve the bottom line.”

The 1732/1734 also include new Energy Analyze Plus App software, delivering more advanced analysis capabilities to better correlate data, making for better decisions. The loggers are rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III – the highest safety rating in the industry – for safe use at the service entrance and downstream.
