GENERAL INFORMATION


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.

 

SOFTWARE FUNCTIONALITY

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.

  • Class 1 Accuracy

  • Large Onboard Memory

  • Energy Parameter Display

  • Software Programmable
