Accurate power quality analysis

Comtest now offers the Fluke range of three-phase power quality loggers – 1742, 1746 and 1748 – giving users fast, easy access to the data they need to make critical power quality and energy decisions in real-time.

Compact and rugged, these loggers are designed specifically for technicians and engineers who need the flexibility to troubleshoot and quantify energy usage and analyse their power distribution systems. Fully compliant with international power quality standards such as IEC 61000-4-30 and capable of simultaneously logging up to 500 parameters while also capturing events, the Fluke 1740 Series helps uncover intermittent and hard-to-find power quality issues easily. The included Energy Analyze plus software quickly assesses the quality of power at the service entrance, substation, or at the load, according to national and international standards like EN 50160 and IEEE 519.

Measures all power quality and power parameters

The Fluke 1748 logs over 500 different parameters for each averaging period. This allows for the analysis of power quality in detail and the correlation of intermittent events with detailed waveform data, helping to identify the root cause of disturbances. For basic power quality logging, the Fluke 1746 captures all relevant power parameters for performing energy-saving studies and electrical network planning with a full upgrade option to 1748 available. For simple load and energy studies the Fluke 1742 offers optimal performance in a rugged package and can be upgraded to 1746 or complete 1748 functionality.

Easy to use

Fluke power quality loggers are designed with the technician in mind. The four current probes are each connected separately allowing flexibility and simplicity, the instrument automatically detects, scales and powers the probes so users do not have to worry about ensuring the measurements are correct.

Capturing logged data is just one part of the task. Users then need to create useful information and reports that can be easily shared and understood by their organisation. Fluke Energy Analyze plus software makes that task as simple as possible. With powerful analysis tools and the ability to create customised reports in minutes users can communicate findings and solve problems to optimise system reliability and show savings.
