New plug-in, single phase Voltage Quality Recorder
Fluke has introduced the Fluke VR1710 Voltage Quality Recorder for single-phase power quality troubleshooting and preventative maintenance applications. Designed as an easy-to-use solution for detecting and recording power quality problems, the VR1710 is a single-phase plug-in voltage quality recorder that can help maintenance and facilities personnel in utilities, industrial environments and large service organisations to maintain the power quality essential to business operations.
The Fluke VR1710 can help users pinpoint the root causes of voltage problems by recording data specified by a user-selected average period on voltage trends, dropouts and power quality parameters, including RMS average, transients, flicker, and harmonics up to the 32nd. It features continuous recording of all values with no gaps, making testing more efficient by enabling users to gather data on both voltage and events with a single instrument.

The recorder plugs directly into any single-phase mains power socket, and includes a USB connection and Fluke PowerLog software for quick instrument setup using a PC, and quick data downloads. PowerLog software also includes graphical tools for data presentation that show RMS voltage and harmonic trends, actual transients, summary information and statistics in accordance with EN50160.

Applications for the Fluke VR1710 Voltage Quality Recorder include:
• Voltage recording – monitoring and recording of supply voltage. It measures RMS average, minimum, and maximum values; it checks whether the socket outlet is providing voltage within tolerance.
• Distortion measurement – measuring frequency and harmonics. It checks whether the distorting loads (UPS systems, drives etc.) are affecting other equipment. High levels of harmonic voltage may cause overheating in neutral conductors.
• Flicker measurement – quantifying the affects of switching loads on lighting systems.
• Capture of voltage transients – capturing those intermittent, momentary events that may be affecting equipment. The full waveform is captured with date, timestamp, and duration.

Fluke VR1710 Voltage Quality Recorders are available from Fluke authorised distributors.
