The new Fluke 430 Series II threephase Power Quality Analysers are claimed to be the first tools to use a patented algorithm to measure energy waste and quantify its cost.
The 430 Series II helps facilities reduce electrical power consumption and improve the performance and lifespan of electro-mechanical equipment by providing the ROI justification to mitigate power quality distortion.
The power quality analysers allow facilities to assess the impact of new energy-efficient, electronically-driven systems from lighting, to motor controls, to HVAC. While these new systems consume less energy as individual installations, they increase the level of power quality disturbance in the overall electrical system, increasing waste energy due to harmonics and reducing the total potential energy savings. The Fluke 430 Series II calculates the monetary cost of that waste energy.
