New Fluke 1730 Three-Phase Electrical Energy Logger Simplifies the Discovery of Electrical Energy Waste

The Fluke 1730 breaks new ground by enabling a broader category of maintenance professionals to confidently gather energy data, while the accompanying Fluke Energy Analyze software scales from the analysis and reporting needs of the facility manager to the advanced analytical requirements of electrical engineers.
Even well-run facilities can experience energy waste, most commonly through equipment and system inefficiencies or by operating at expensive times of the day. The Fluke 1730 negates the need for expensive power quality analysers operated by engineers with advanced training, whose cost and skill barriers have made energy audits impractical for many facilities. The 1730 is a streamlined energy logging tool with a straightforward, intuitive design, allowing technicians to carry out load studies and energy logging right out of the box. The results provide facility managers with the information necessary to identify and prioritise energy saving projects.
The compact Fluke 1730 energy logger conducts key measurements of voltage, current, power, and power factor to identify areas of energy waste. All measured values are logged automatically and can be reviewed during logging. Common setup errors are rectified, through re-engineered cables, digital check and auto-correct of all connections, and an on-screen wizard for interval setup. It has the highest safety rating in the industry (600V CAT IV/1000V CAT III), can be powered directly from the measured circuit eliminating the need to find a power outlet, and has two USB ports for fast data downloads to PCs or standard memory sticks.
Data logged by the 1730 can be imported into the Fluke Energy Analyze software for further processing and archiving. The software allows users to analyse energy or load profiles, including zoom-in and zoom-out on details; add comments, pictures, and other information to data; overlay different logging sessions; create reports; and export measurement results.
