Test Instruments, Meters, Data Loggers

Finalists in Test instruments, meters, data loggers for Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2012 Product of the Year competition


Power quality analyzers

430 Series IIThe Fluke 430 Series II three-phase power quality and energy analyzers are handheld tools that measure electrical power consumption, quantify wasted energy, and improve the performance and lifespan of electromechanical equipment. Three measurement functions are combined with hardware, software, and firmware improvements. The Unified Power function provides the ability to calculate the monetary cost of the wasted energy and to automatically quantify the energy wasted by harmonics and unbalance. The Inverter Efficiency function simultaneously measures the input and output power inverters. The 435 model includes PowerWave, a “fast capture” system that displays waveforms, half-cycle RMS voltage, and current values to measure interaction during switching operations. These analyzers have up to 32 GB memory, a swappable SD memory card, and USB connectivity.

Smart meters

Series 3000Leviton’s Series 3000 line of UL-listed smart meters measure power use in a building with enhanced measurement functionality, greater communications capabilities, and indicators to ensure proper installation and accurate data collection. Designed for commercial, institutional, industrial, and government applications, these meters monitor power consumption for individual tenants, departments, and pieces of equipment, or other loads, to account for their actual energy usage. They measure kWh, demand, instantaneous power, V, A, W, VAR, and VA per phase. These meters are equipped with an isolated pulse output channel and an RS-485 two-way serial port and open architecture platform for integration with AMR/BAS/BMS/EMS systems.

Thermal imagers

P3 Series thermal imagersFluke added four additional products to the P3 Series thermal imagers: the Ti27 and Ti29 models measure temperature from -20  to 600 C with a high temperature color alarm for industrial applications, and the TiR27 and TiR29 models measure temperature from -20 to 150 C with a low temperature or dewpoint color alarm for building inspection and maintenance applications. These thermal imagers feature interchangeable lenses, 76,800 total pixel image count for the Ti32/TiR32 models, thermal and spatial resolution with Fluke IR-Fusion that simultaneously displays visible light and infrared images, and Fluke SmartView professional IR software for viewing, annotating, editing, and analyzing.
