Simple to use power quality analyser for error-free measurements

18-10-2021 | Fluke | Test & Measurement

Fluke has launched the 1770 series Power Quality Data logger/Troubleshooter, the first instrument constructed on its future platform for Power Quality Analysers, with significant gains in form factor and operability.

Typical applications for the series include routine maintenance and troubleshooting of equipment and power supply problems, energy surveys and optimisation and new equipment installation. These measurements are frequently needed in industrial and commercial facilities, hospitals, universities, electrical service providers, and service organisations to assure safe, continuous, efficient operation of the electrical system. Its intuitive operation and automated connection verification make it ideal for professional engineers and less experienced users working in equipment installation, commissioning and servicing.

The device measures and automatically captures key power quality parameters, including harmonics, swells, dips, unbalance, inrush current and more, providing users with the assurance that they are receiving the right measurement results each time. The bright, large touch screen display, together with physical navigation buttons and an optimised user interface, signifies it is simple to change settings, manage logging sessions or investigate data in the field whether located inside a dark building or in direct sunlight — even with gloves on.

The series uses common accessories from existing Fluke products, including voltage test leads, hanger kit, current probes etc. providing users cost savings by being able to utilise them on multiple instruments, and supports its Energy Analyse PC software application, offering the same excellent access to data that customers are used to, with a cleaner user interface and easier reporting.

Jai Gandhi, sales program manager at Fluke, says: “The new 1770 series of power quality analysers sets a new benchmark in plug and play data logging and troubleshooting of power quality and disturbances with the reassurance that even users with little experience can collect and analyse meaningful data.”
