Power quality measurements can be complex to set up and frustrating when critical events are missed. COMTEST, Fluke’s local channel partner, has introduced the new Fluke 1770 Series that captures more than 500 power quality parameters by default so critical power quality events are never missed — from fast transients up to 8kV, harmonics up to 30kHz, and dips and swells, as well as the voltage, current, and power measurements that enable technicians to characterise electrical systems.
“The Fluke 1770 Series walks technicians through the whole set-up to eliminate any measurement errors and ensure that all the correct parameters are selected,” said Frank Healy, product manager. “The 1770 Series helps technicians identify issues faster and in a clearer manner to ensure the right data is always collected.”
The 1770 Series features:
- Automatic measurement of power and power quality parameters — Critical power quality data is captured as soon as a session is started, without extensive set-up or selections.
- Intuitive user interface — The streamlined user interface makes it easy to navigate between measurement parameters like V/A/Hz, power, dips and swells, harmonics, unbalance or PQ health at the push of a button.
- High-speed voltage transient capture — Capture damaging high-speed, high magnitude transients to mitigate their effects before equipment fails.
Capture, troubleshoot and mitigate voltage transients
Voltage transients negatively impact otherwise healthy systems every day, and their potential to damage equipment can’t be underestimated. Fluke 1775 and 1777 capture high-speed transients faster than ever before by leveraging the power of the latest Intel Cyclone FPGA. With a sample rate of 20MS/s, users can effectively capture, troubleshoot, and mitigate the most damaging power quality issues.
Powerfully simple reporting
Fluke 1770 Series power quality analysers come standard with the powerful Fluke energy analyse plus software, designed to analyse power quality data right out of the box without extensive training. It enables technicians to quickly compare results to historical values, benchmark against industry norms, compare measured data to local conditions, and create a more complete picture of what’s occurring across the facility — even as the data is still being collected.
With Fluke energy analyse plus, technicians can create customised reports or leverage built-in, one-click reporting to industry standards like EN 50160, IEEE 519, and GOST 33073.
