Fluke 1760 power quality recorder

The Fluke 1760 three-phase power quality recorder is based on the LEM Topas 2000 power quality analyzer. Providing full compliance to the IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A standard, the instrument is designed for advanced testing and analysis of utility and industrial power distribution systems in medium- and low-voltage networks.

The 1760 gives users the flexibility to customize thresholds, algorithms and measurement selections for custom analysis and reporting. It provides comprehensive analysis of power quality according to EN 50160, measuring a broad range of parameters including RMS values, flicker, voltage dips, voltage swells, voltage unbalance, current and voltage harmonics to the 50th harmonic, interharmonics, THD, mains signaling, reactive power, transients and power factor.

It features GPS time synchronization, which enables users to correlate data precisely with specific events or data sets from multiple instruments, and can provide detail of even the shortest event with its 10MHz, 6000Vpk waveform capture. It has a 2Gbyte internal compact flash memory to enable detailed simultaneous recording of several power parameters over long periods of time, and includes an internal battery that maintains power for up to 40mins in the event of a power supply failure or outage. Data can be transferred to a computer directly through an integrated Ethernet network, even while the instrument continues to record.

The Fluke 1760 includes PQ Analyze software for Windows-based PCs, which is designed for detailed power quality analysis and report generation.In the online function, the software enables remote instrument setup, job processing, real-time verification of actual measurement values and data download. Data can be viewed as trend diagrams for root cause analysis or as statistical summaries in a variety of formats.

Designed for quick and convenient setup, the 1760 automatically detects, configures and powers the current and voltage probes when they are plugged into the instrument. It features a fully insulated housing and uses no rotating components for reliable operation under even the most rugged conditions.
