Fluke has introduced an electrical measurement window which provides immediate access to voltage and current sensors inside an energised electrical panel. This offers decreased maintenance costs and reduced downtime. Power quality and energy measurements can be made using the external access points without opening the panel door, thus offering safer access and speedy connections.
The new Fluke PQ400 Electrical Measurement Window can be simply installed using a step drill bit and an electro-hydraulic hole punch. Three-phase voltage, current and ground connections cover most measurement configurations. Once installed, users can simply unlock the window cover, lift the lid and connect the analyser or logger leads. The Fluke PQ400 provides access to critical power quality and energy data to help reduce the risk of arc-flash and electrocution. Also by reducing the hazards associated with taking measurements on open panels, troubleshooting process time could be faster and connections can be made without impacting operations.
Automatic probe detection for Fluke 1740 and 1730 Series power quality and energy loggers and compatible clamps eliminate the need to open the cabinet to check the clamp model. Compatibility with standard 4mm shrouded safety-socket voltage test leads makes it easier to make voltage connections, increases safety by reducing the risk of accidentally touching live components and reduces the need for purchasing specialised voltage leads. The PQ400 is also compatible with the Fluke 430 Series Power Quality Analysers.
The PQ400 windows are safety rated to CAT IV 600V and CAT III 1000V. Full 360 degree rotation allows the electrical measurement window to be oriented in any direction.
