Power can be lost through changes in power factor through different boards in your plant, or different phases in a board. You can suffer from very high tariff rates being applied based on short term peak loading. The first step to making a decision on the best action plan, is to find out what is happening in your plant power system.
The Lutron DW-6095 provides the most functionality of all the simple power analysers with up to 35 parameters to 600VAC and 1200 amps – or 3000amps with the optional flexible current probes. It includes harmonics to 50th order and captures transient events [non graphically] as dips, swells and outage with a response time around 130microseconds. Data can be logged at intervals from 2 second to 7200 seconds with 30000 sets of 9 parameters per block, on a 2GB SD card – for ready analysis in a spread sheet.
The unit comes as a complete kit with current (x 3) and voltage probes (x 4) in a carry bag ready for use.
CP-3000 flexible current probes for 30, 300, and 3000amp [selectable] are optional for the DW-6095 and connect directly without separate power supply.
For a lower cost solution there is model DW-6093 that has no Phase graphics and no transient detection. It has the same capability for measurements and logging
The information gained through a plant-wide review with this instrument will guide you in planning steps to reduce your power consumption, and certainly your power bills in future. For more information contact ECEFast.
