PRESS RELEASE : Fluke Power Quality launches first handheld three phase analyzers rated for use at the service entrance

EVERETT, WA – Fluke Power Quality, a division of Fluke Corporation, the world's leading supplier of test and measurement equipment, introduces the first three phase power quality analyzers that are rated to CAT III, 1000 V / CAT IV, 600 V for all four-channels, enabling power quality testing at the service entrance.

The Fluke 430 Series three-phase handheld power quality analyzers offer unique features like AutoTrend, which records everything on the screen automatically, and System-Monitor, a quick diagnosis of system performance against user defined limits. You can even view stored data while continuing to record. Together the features help to quickly diagnose problems and build benchmarks for predictive maintenance.

Simple to use with immediate results

Designed for power quality specialists as well as electricians and plant technicians working in industrial, healthcare, business, and public services settings, the Fluke 430 Series has functions typically only found on expensive power recorders. Yet its menu-driven interface allows users to be hooked up and recording in minutes.

Full measurement capability and the highest safety rating

With a CAT III, 1000 V / CAT IV, 600 V safety rating the Fluke 430 Series can measure all phases, neutral and ground on virtually every connection in a low voltage electrical distribution system. The meter's measurement capabilities encompass all power system parameters including True RMS voltage and current, frequency, power, power consumption (energy), unbalance and flicker. They also automatically capture events like transients (as fast as 5 microseconds and as high as 6kV), interruptions, rapid voltage changes and dips and swells.

Rugged design for field use

Optimized for mobile applications, these rugged instruments operate up to seven hours on a single battery charge. The large data memory stores up to 50 screens and up to 10 measurements each comprising 32 parameters – including setups and trend data – recorded for more than a year, all of which can be transferred to a PC via FlukeView® software for analysis or use in reports.
