Power quality analysers measure wasted energy

Fluke, the specialist in portable electronic test and measurement technology (Stand F7), has introduced the new Fluke 430 Series II three-phase Power Quality Analysers, which use a patented algorithm to measure energy waste and quantify its cost. The 430 Series II helps facilities reduce electrical power consumption and improve the performance and lifespan of electro-mechanical equipment by providing the ROI justification to mitigate power quality distortion. The updated 430 Series II features three new measurement functions as well as hardware, software and firmware improvements.

Previously, only experts could calculate how much energy was being wasted due to power quality issues. With the new, patented Unified Power function of the handheld Fluke 430 Series II, it is possible to automatically determine how much power is being wasted and calculate exactly the extra consumption costs. The 430 Series II power quality analysers allow facilities to assess the impact of new energy-efficient, electronically-driven systems from lighting to motor controls to HVAC. While these new systems 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.
