Recorder Analyzes Power Quality in 3 Phases

The Fluke 1760 Three-Phase Power Quality Recorder is fully compliant with IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A, for advanced power quality analysis and consistent compliance testing. Designed for analysis of utility and industrial power distribution systems in medium- and low-voltage networks, this power quality monitor provides the flexibility to customize thresholds, algorithms, and measurement selections. The 1760 power recorder captures comprehensive details on user-selected parameters.

The recorder performs high-speed transient analysis and uncovers root cause of equipment malfunction for later mitigation and predictive maintenance. The fast transient option, with its 6000 V measurement range, allows capture of short impulses such as lightning strikes.

The unit validates incoming power quality at the service entrance. Because of Class A compliance, the Fluke 1760 allows undisputable verification. The device uses GPS time synchronization so users can quickly detect where a fault occurred first, either inside or outside the facility. It also allows complete measurements on dissimilar power systems. For example, troubleshoot UPS systems by simultaneously recording the battery voltage and power output.

The recorder assesses baseline power quality to validate compatibility with critical systems before installation and verify electrical system capacity before adding loads.
