Accurately Measure THD and TID in the Electrical Line with the Dranetz PX5

Dranetz PowerXplorer PX5 Power MonitorAn electrical system that has a lot of distortion, voltage spikes and harmonics can cause serious problems. These electrical interference can cause motors to overheat or lose spinning synchronization, accelerate the breakdown of transformers and cause an increase in power losses. These problems can cause a lot of headache and cost you a lot of money. 

The Dranetz PowerXplorer PX5 Power Monitor is a compact and accurate power quality analyzer that can help you diagnose electrical line problems. It can give you a detailed event characterization of transients and RMS variations.

The Dranetz PowerXplorer PX5 Power Monitor is capable of measuring total harmonic (THD) and interharmonic (TID) quantities up to the 63rd harmonic. This instrument’s sampling frequency allows for accurate isolation of harmonics which can help to identify the source from which the harmonics are generated. Dranetz PX5 well-lit LCD screen doubles as the touch screen control panel of the tester. This allows for a more compact and  lightweight design compared to other analyzers on the market. You also have the option to power the device from an AC line source or from batteries. This makes it perfect for industrial and field use.
