Fluke has introduced the 1738 Three-Phase Power Logger which offers extensive power quality and energy measurements, making it an ideal tool for conducting energy studies, power quality logging and wireless logging of associated analogue data. The Fluke 1738 is enabled with the Fluke Connect app and the new, optional Fluke Connect Assets software, making it an ideal test tool for storing, archiving and tracking power quality measurement data. Other Fluke Connect 3000 Series modules can be connected to the Fluke 1738 to simultaneously log up to two other measurement parameters.
The Fluke 1738 Three-Phase Power Logger features an optimised user interface and an intelligent measurement verification function designed to reduce measurement errors by digitally verifying and correcting common connection errors. Setup can be further simplified by powering the logger directly from the measured circuit. The standard flexible current probes cover most applications, and optional current measuring accessories offer the ability to measure very low currents or up to 6,000A on larger conductors.
As part of the family of Fluke Connect tools, technicians can wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smartphones for secure storage on the Fluke Connect® Cloud and for team access from the field.* With the Fluke Connect smartphone app, the data from the power logger can be viewed from a safe distance, reducing the need for protective equipment, site visits, and check-ins.
The Fluke 1738 will automatically capture and log more than 500 power quality parameters to give technicians and engineers more visibility into the data needed to make better power quality and energy consumption decisions. It can capture and log voltage, current, power, harmonics, and associated power quality values to deliver comprehensive data for load studies, energy assessments, harmonic measurements, and voltage event. The included Fluke Energy Analyze Plus software provides detailed analysis of energy consumption and power quality and generates reports automatically.
All three phases and neutral can be measured using the four flexible current probes. More than twenty separate logging sessions can be stored on the instrument. All measured values are automatically logged so that measurement trends are not lost: they can be reviewed during logging sessions, and before downloading, for on-the-go analysis.
The bright, colour touch-screen enables convenient in-the-field analysis and data checks with full graphical displays. The instrument provides event waveform snapshots, along with date and timestamp, to capture dips and swells and help pinpoint root causes of power quality issues. The Fluke 1738 has 600V CAT IV / 1000V CAT III safety ratings.
