PRESS RELEASE : Fluke VR1710 Voltage Quality Recorder Helps Maintenance and Facilities Management Maintain the Power Quality Essential to Business Operations

EVERETT, Wash. - Fluke Corporation, the global leader in handheld electronic test and measurement technology, today announced the Fluke VR1710 Voltage Quality Recorder. Designed as an easy-to-use solution for detecting and recording power quality problems, the Fluke VR1710 is a single-phase plug-in voltage quality recorder that can help maintenance and facilities personnel in utilities, industrial environments and large service organizations maintain the power quality essential to business operations.

The 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, making testing more efficient by enabling users to gather data on both voltage and events with a single instrument.

The recorder plugs directly into the mains power socket, and includes a USB cable and PowerLog software for quick instrument setup and 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:

  1. Voltage recording – monitor and record supply voltage; measure rms average, minimum and maximum values; check whether the socket outlet is providing voltage within tolerance.
  2. Distortion measurement – measure frequency and harmonics; check whether the distorting loads (UPS systems, drives, etc.) are affecting other equipment. High levels of harmonic voltage may cause overheating in neutral conductors.
  3. Flicker measurement – quantify the effects of switching loads on lighting systems.
  4. Capture voltage transients – capture those intermittent, momentary events that may be affecting your equipment; the full waveform is captured with date, timestamp and duration.
