The PowerTrack instrument is a portable energy recorder designed to provide detailed information of a specific electrical feed. Extensive communications capabilities (local & remote) enable fast and accurate information retrieval and the software provides a graphical interface for quick and easy analysis of recorded data.
The unit has the following main functions
- Extensive load profiling, recording per phase and summated parameters
- Display of all instantaneous energy related values on the graphical screen
- Energy Meter and CT verification functionality
- Costing Analysis - Determine cost centers, identify opportunities for demand control and determine energy consumption patterns
- Load Studies – Determine the capacity of a network, perform load trending, phase balancing, DSM studies
- Power Factor Investigation – Determine the maximum demand and capacitor bank sizes required for unity power factor.
- Generator Investigation – determine peak loads per phase for sizing of Gensets.

ENERGY PROFILE RECORDING
The PowerTrack is suitable for installation at any three-phase (3 Wire/2 Watt or 4 Wire/3 Watt) and single phase supplies.
The instrument records all energy parameters at preset averaging intervals ranging from 1 second to 60 minutes on a large onboard flash memory. The 20 key alphanumeric keypad enables the user to edit all the recording parameters as well as selecting the various viewing formats of real-time parameters on-site.
The recorded data can be downloaded to any computer where the data are presented in various analytical formats including graphs, statistics and export functions.
VOLTAGE AND CURRENT INPUTS
The PowerTrack is issued standard with fused voltage leads with crocodile clips and various types of current transducers can be used. The instrument supports 5A, 100A clip-on CT’s as well as flexible coils measuring up to 1600A. Specialized coils can also be made to order for larger currents.
The PowerTrack software incorporates various graphical and analytical functions for quick and easy analysis of recorded data. Extensive zooming capabilities and multiple export functions allows for sensible and presentable reporting of recorded data.
