New Products: Metering and Measuring Power

By Consulting Specifying Engineer Staff October 20, 2005

Current loggers record true RMS measurements of current parameters and include integral, flexible current probes for three-phase measurements up to 3000 Amps. Units are battery operated and allow recording over long time periods by reducing stored sample resolution of oldest data. Loggers can store up to 480,000 points and 64 samples per cycle. Included software aids analysis and report generation. For more information from AEMC Instruments, click here .

Wireless energy submeters enable cost allocation in a range of applications, from residential apartments to in-plant departmental installations. Standard interfaces include 802.11 wireless Ethernet Modbus TCP, RS485, and RJ45. Standard Modbus interface allows units to interface with most energy-management and SCADA systems, without requiring proprietary software or communication channels.

Motor and drive troubleshooting kit includes an insulation multimeter, current clamp and rotary field indicator. Multimeter includes an insulation tester and can be used for troubleshooting and preventive maintenance on motors, motor drives, cables and switchgears. Current clamp can be used with multimeter to measure current without breaking the circuit, while rotary field indicator allows users to check rotation of three-phase motors. Multimeter and clamp feature CAT III 1000 V/CAT IV 600 V overvoltage rating, and rotary

Automatic circuit identifiers are offered in two models, with either a digital receiver and non-contact voltage sensor and GFCI tester or with an analog receiver. Units feature audible and visual indicators to verify presence of power on a 120 VAC circuit. Digital unit also includes a low-battery indicator. For more information from Ideal, click here .
