Fluke’s new 430 Series II three-phase Power Quality Analysers have a patented algorithm to measure energy waste and quantify its cost, thus helping to reduce electrical power consumption and improve the performance and lifespan of electro-mechanical equipment by providing the ROI justification to mitigate power quality distortion.
The updated 430 Series II models feature three new measurement functions as well as hardware, software and firmware improvements. With the new Unified Power function of the handheld Fluke 430 Series II, electricians, utility technicians, electrical engineers, field service technicians and energy consultants can automatically determine how much power is being wasted and calculate exactly what the extra consumption costs.
The new analysers allow facilities to assess the impact of new energy efficient, electronically driven systems such as lighting, motor controls and HVAC. While these new systems consume less energy as individual installations, they increase the level of power quality disturbance in the overall electrical system, increasing waste energy due to harmonics and reducing the total potential energy savings. The Fluke 430 Series II calculates the monetary cost of that waste energy.
The new analysers offer up to 32GB (8GB standard) memory, a swappable SD memory card and USB connectivity for longer power and energy logging and faster data download. Screen quality and battery life are both improved and the software has been redesigned to give users more options to analyse both power quality and power consumption. Both new models, the Fluke 434 and Fluke 435, are fully compliant with the international IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A standard. Each one can monitor systems with up to ten power quality parameters on one screen and can record up to 150 parameters on four phases simultaneously, in accordance with the EN 50160 standard, and are safety rated 600V CAT IV/1,000V CAT III.
The 430 Series II Inverter Efficiency function simultaneously measures the input and output power of inverters in solar systems, wind turbines and uninterruptible power supplies, allowing the operator to see how much electricity the inverter is consuming and whether it is operating efficiently.
The 435 model includes PowerWave, a ‘fast capture’ system that displays waveforms, half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail so motor and generator operators can measure the interaction during switching operations.
