Fluke previews 430 Series II Three-Phase Power Quality and Energy Analyzers
Previously, only experts could calculate how much energy was being wasted due to power quality issues; utilities could calculate the cost but the required measurement process was beyond the reach of most electricians. With the new, patented Unified Power function of the 430 Series II, electricians, utility technicians, electrical engineers, field service technicians, and energy consultants can automatically determine how much power is being wasted and calculate exactly what the extra consumption costs are with a single handheld tool.
In particular, the 430 Series II power quality analyzers allow facilities to assess the impact of new energy-efficient, electronically-driven systems from lighting to motor controls to HVAC. While these new models consume less energy as individual installations, they increase the level of power quality disturbance in the overall electrical system, increasing waste energy due to harmonics and reducing the total potential energy savings. The Fluke 430 Series II calculates the monetary cost of that waste energy.
This is the second year in a row Fluke has received recognition from Motor Magazine. Last year, the Fluke 233/A Remote Display Automotive Multimeter was recognized as a Top 20 Tool.
