Electrical Energy Logger Simplifies the Discovery of Electrical Energy Waste
Fluke Corp. introduces the Fluke 1730 three-phase energy logger. The unit enables a broader category of multi-disciplinary maintenance professionals to gather energy data. The accompanying Fluke Energy Analyze software scales from the analysis and reporting needs of the facility manager to the advanced analytical requirements of electrical engineers.
The Fluke 1730 allows technicians to load studies and energy logging out of the box. The results provide facility managers with the information necessary to identify and prioritize energy saving projects. The compact energy logger conducts key measurements of voltage, current, power and power factor to identify areas of energy waste.
All measured values are logged automatically and can be reviewed during logging. Common setup errors are rectified through re-engineered cables, digital check and auto-correct of all connections and an on-screen wizard for interval setup. It has a safety rating of 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III, and it can be powered directly from the measured circuit, eliminating the need to find a power outlet. It also features two USB ports for fast data downloads to PCs or standard thumb drives.
Data logged by the 1730 can be imported into the Fluke Energy Analyze software for further processing and archiving. The software allows users to analyze energy or load profiles, including zoom-in and zoom-out on details; add comments, pictures, and other information to data; overlay different logging sessions; create reports; and export measurement results.
