The easiest way to save energy and save on your electric bill
Most facility managers realize that energy is being wasted by inefficient systems or by operating non-critical loads at peak utility rate periods.
In addition to the cost of all that wasted energy, safety is another concern. If you’re planning to add a new electrical load to your existing service you need to know exactly what your existing systems are drawing. Just measuring voltage and current at any given point in time doesn’t provide the level of detail you need to determine if there is capacity for the new load. Performing a load study using an electrical energy logger gives you a more accurate picture over time, and you can use those results to meet reporting requirements for various safety regulations.
In the past, getting an accurate picture of energy use was complex and costly. You could use a low-end, general-purpose logger but you wouldn’t get accurate results. Or you could use an expensive power quality analyzer, but that required an engineer with advanced training.
Now there’s a new solution.
Simplified, affordable energy logging
The new Fluke 1730 Three-Phase Electrical Energy Logger delivers high-performance energy logging capabilities in a compact, intuitively easy-to-use logging tool. You can use it to measure multiple values simultaneously over time, and run calculations on the data collected. The Fluke 1730 is optimized for energy logging in industrial plants and commercial/institutional buildings, or any application needing three-phase energy profiling.
The two most frequent applications for the 1730 include:
Not just another energy logger
The Fluke 1730 Electrical Energy Logger not only provides professional-level data measuring; it gives you those capabilities in an intuitive, easy-to-use, very portable tool that:
Putting the data to work
Fluke Energy Analyze software, which comes with the 1730 Energy Logger, is designed to meet the needs of a broad range of maintenance professionals - from facility managers to electrical engineers. After the 1730 collects the data you can import it into the software for further analysis and automated reporting to clearly show decision makers the areas for potential energy savings. Using the software, it is easy to zoom in and out on details; add comments and pictures to the data (for example, images from a thermal camera); overlay multiple logging sessions; and export measurements to create powerful reports.
Together, the new Fluke 1730 Energy Logger and Energy Analyze software make it easy and affordable for facilities of all sizes to track and address energy waste to optimize systems and help reduce your electric bill.
