PM7000-FLM Fault Level Monitor

PM7000 Fault Level Monitor (FLM)

The first ever portable Fault Level Monitor

The PM7000 FLM is the first ever commercially available instrument capable of predicting peak and RMS fault current by observing natural disturbances on the network.

The first ever portable Fault Level Monitor

Double finalist in the Electrical Industry Innovation Awards 2012, the PM7000 FLM is the first ever commercially available instrument capable of predicting peak and RMS fault current by observing natural disturbances on the network.

As well as predicting the network fault current during normal (live) operation, the PM7000 FLM can also measure the same Power Quality parameters as Outram’s top of the range Power Quality Analyser the PM7000S. See the PM7000 FLM’s key features below.

The PM7000 FLM can be portable or panel mounted and will work at any voltage level predicting the fault current using radial network disturbances of as little as 0.15% (on voltage).

The larger the disturbance the greater the confidence in the answer. The Outram FLM will give the peak and RMS Fault Level Result, the confidence weighting and a time stamp as to when the result was generated. The user then chooses which result they use.

There may be occasions when there are no (or only very little) disturbances on the network being measured. Since natural disturbances are used to generate fault values if there are no disturbances on the network then no results can be generated.

Key Features Include

  • Cat IV 600V Fault Level Monitor
  • Real Time Fault Level results: Recent results generated are given in tabular format along with confidence weighting and time stamp.
  • Composite Fault Level results: Fault Level measured and recorded over a given time resulting in the best quality result of the Fault Level on that section of the network.
  • Fault Level Trend over time: Both peak and RMS fault level predictions mapped over the length of the recording.
  • Bi-colour, status LEDs, externally visible, show recording/memory/voltage/power conditions.
  • Bluetooth, Ethernet, USB, USB Flash Drive connectivity.
  • Comes with 4 colour coded Rogowski Coils, no batteries required.
  • Comes with Pronto for Windows software, a highly regarded data recovery and analysis package

Power Quality Analyser

The PM7000 FLM is also a Cat IV 600V, phase A powered Power Quality Analyser with:

  • Flicker measurements to IEC61000-4-15: Instantaneous Flicker Sensation,Short Term and Long Term Flicker Perceptibility.
  • Single Cycle Adaptive Storage recording process provides extremely high resolution over long recording periods. No thresholds need to be set
  • 32 Troubleshooting channels with single cycle detail.
  • General Parameters: Over 470 channels which record automatically every recording session for reporting to the Standards.
  • Auto-Ranking Waveform CaptureEvents caught by waveform capture (19.2k samples/sec) are ranked for disturbance severity, 7 types of disturbance captured: Transients, falls (sags), rises (surges), rings, notches, THD, Total Harmonic Value. No thresholds need to be set.
  • Harmonics to the 50th: THD and individual harmonics to the 50th as standard. As well as using the 32 detailed recording channels, record 1-50th harmonics on all voltage and current channels in General Parameters every measuring session (up to 400 parameters).

Fault Level Project Opportunities

Do you have sections of your network that have reached their Fault Level capacity?

Should you validate your Fault Level models using real network measurement before spending $/£/Euros 1000s on reinforcements or rejecting applications for extra load on the network?

Are you using Fault Level models in any Innovation projects and would benefit from validating the values being used?

We believe there is not only huge potential for generating real time Fault Level Values using actual network measurements but in validating fault level models, enabling extra security of supply especially where fault level is reaching critical levels.

…PM3000 is the best product in my shop

The reason I think your PM3000 is the best product in my shop is the reliability and the software. I use 5 different brands of recorders and this one by far has been the most reliable. The software updates are great, with the 60 day reminders. The layout of the software and every single function make it simple and user friendly unlike most products.
