Fluke 3ph Power Loggers Deliver Comprehensive Data To Optimise System Reliability And Savings

Automatically capture and log more than 500 power quality parameters to thoroughly analyse energy consumption and power quality
Fluke is introducing the 1736 and 1738 Three-Phase Power Loggers, which automatically capture and log more than 500 power quality parameters to give technicians and engineers more visibility into the data needed to make better power quality and energy consumption decisions. They are the first three-phase power loggers designed to work with the Fluke Connect® system of software and wireless test tools. They can be found at www.fluke.co.uk and clicking on ‘New Products’.
The Fluke 1736 and 1738 Three-Phase Power Loggers capture and log voltage, current, power, harmonics, and associated power quality values to deliver comprehensive data for load studies, energy assessments, harmonic measurements, and voltage event. The included Fluke Energy Analyze Plus software provides detailed analysis of energy consumption and power quality and generates reports automatically.
The Fluke 1736 and 1738 feature an optimised user interface, flexible current probes, and an intelligent measurement verification function designed to reduce measurement errors by digitally verifying and correcting common connection errors. Set up can be further simplified by powering the logger directly from the measured circuit.
All three phases and neutral can be measured using the four flexible current probes. More than twenty separate logging sessions can be stored on the instrument. All measured values are automatically logged so that measurement trends are not lost: they can be reviewed during logging sessions, and before downloading, for on-the-go analysis.
The bright, colour touch-screen enables convenient in-the-field analysis and data checks with full graphical displays. The instruments provide event waveform snapshots, along with date and timestamp, to capture dips and swells and help pinpoint root causes of power quality issues. They have 600V CAT IV / 1000V CAT III safety ratings.
Fluke Connect tools allow technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smartphones for secure storage on the Fluke Connect® Cloud and for team access from the field.* With the Fluke Connect smartphone app, the data from the power loggers can be viewed from a safe distance, reducing the need for protective equipment, site visits, and check-ins.
