Capturing and Analyzing Power Quality Events Using Fluke’s 430 Series

  • Uncategorized

Power quality is one of the common causes of premature equipment failure and severe power losses in the electrical system. Correcting the power quality issue as early as possible can significantly save you a lot of money and headaches.

A power quality analysis tester is a diagnostic device used to capture and quantify power events in an electrical system. The captured information allows technicians to correctly compensate the electrical system and eliminate the power line distortion. Some of the power events power quality analyzers measure are dips, swells, total harmonic distortion, unbalance, flicker, energy and transient intermodulation distortion.These devices also allow you to use various tools for analyzing the power event trends.

If you are considering getting an analyzer, you might want to check out some of these popular devices on the market today. These testers boast a simple to use interface and excellent power event analysis.
