Measure 32 (PM7000) or 16 (PM3000) recording channels at half cycle intervals, displaying data down to single cycle resolution when interesting events occur during a recording. Each time a deviation from the ‘trend’ occurs the measured data is recorded in more detail, down to as little as a single cycle. Don’t miss anything by having to set thresholds. With Adaptive store you don’t need to, the important detail is captured automatically.
Record high speed waveforms on all 8 measurement channels (4 voltage, 4 current) at 1.228 Mega Hz using our PM7000 Turbo model. As with Adaptive Store, no thresholds need to be set as waveforms are captured automatically based on the triggers selected, from Transient, Ring, Notch, Sag, Surge, THD and TH Current. Either record all events or just the worst throughout the recording by choosing ‘Greatest Disturbances’. The PM7000 automatically ranks the waveforms recorded so you can choose to record, for example, the most interesting 50 (selectable) of the particular trigger you have chosen. Once you have looked through the top 10 ranked waveforms, you probably will not want or need to see any more.
Over 470 channels are recorded automatically at a user specified interval during every recording, simultaneously to the other recording regimes described. With intervals from 1 second to 12 hours (many options available), compare against the Standards, get trend data, measure all Voltage or Current harmonics to the 100th order at the same time. Find anything you may have forgotten to record using the Adaptive Store detailed channels. (Interharmonics Option needed for harmonics to the 100th).
Fault Level (PM7000FLM and PM7503FLM only)
Predict prospective Fault Level at the point of attachment by evaluation of normal network behaviour. Determine Peak (10ms) and RMS (selectable, typically 90ms) Upstream Fault Level and Downstream Motor Contribution (10ms) measurements. Potentially see Fault Level change over time depending on the configuration of the network during the recording. For more information click here
Applications for Outram’s Power Master 3 phase Power Monitors
PM7000 (and PM7503 where appropriate)
- Troubleshoot unknown power quality issues in real time as well as through recording analysis
- Benchmark and validate new equipment installations
- Create detailed power quality surveys from templates. G5/4 reporting possible with just a few clicks in our Power Quality Software, Pronto for Windows.
- Monitor long term without revisiting the analyser.
- Speed up critical equipment recovery by monitoring malfunctions if and when they happen.
- General Harmonics Analysis to the 100th Harmonic (individual harmonics measurement to the 127th)
- Solve customer complaints on your network
- Measure in remote locations, powering the unit of Phase A, safe in the knowledge the logger will restart after power interruptions.
- Measure load distortion and imbalance
- Measure for preventive maintenance to prevent equipment malfunction
- Capture Fast Transients, Notches, Rings, Sags, Surges and more
- Capture Power Quality Events with no thresholds set
- Network Characterization
PM7000FLM (and PM7503FLM)
The PM7000FLM (and PM7503FLM) can do all of the above but can also be used to:
- Validate Network Fault Level Models
- Replace weeks of very expensive system modelling with a single recording
- Exploit absent but assumed Generation/Motor Contribution.
- Validate breaker settings.
- Delay/eliminate need for/ network reinforcement.
- Maximise breaker life.
PM3000 applications include
- Troubleshoot unknown power quality issues
- Solve Voltage and Flicker Complaints
- Measure DC
- Carry out energy assessments
- Carry out Load Studies
- Benchmark and Validate New Equipment Installation
- Monitor Long term using FIFO mode
- Measure in remote locations, powering the unit of Phase A, safe in the knowledge the logger will restart after power interruptions
- Measure for preventive maintenance – keep a track on your power quality to detect any problems before they cause your equipment damage or end up in costly down time.
- Network Characterization

…calculation of fault level trivial in comparison to the ‘manual’ methods
The Outram equipment (and associated software) makes calculation of fault level trivial in comparison to the ‘manual’ methods.
That’s a hell of a piece of Kit!
That’s a hell of a piece of Kit!
Now I’ve seen what it can do I’m going to mention it to another customer here in the UK who I know is having trouble.”
I have been quite astounded at the detail the Outram Data Logger has captured.
During communications regarding the 3 PM7000TIs that Bob is managing remotely, with new data sent back to him over email every 24 hrs, he told us that he has been finding detail in the recordings he never thought he would see. “I have been quite astounded at the detail the Outram Data Logger has captured.”
It’s shown me just how much time your software is going to save me!
What you showed me this morning and what I’ve been doing this afternoon has shown me just how much time your software is going to save me!
It’s an amazing piece of Kit!
I certainly will be hiring another PM7000 again. It’s an amazing piece of kit!
…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.
Outram PM7000FLM proved capable of reliably assessing Fault Level
The Outram PM7000FLM and associated software proved to be capable of reliably assessing / calculating fault level from both repeated low-level steps, as well as one-off larger pulses.
By far the best project partner I have ever worked with!
Thank you for all the help and support you all gave me on the RTFLM project… It was an absolute privilege to work with you all and Outram are by far the best project partner I have ever worked with!
I have used data loggers in the past… Not in the same league as the Outram equipment
Thank you for all your fantastic efforts yesterday.
I have used data loggers in the past but they were not in the same league as the Outram equipment.
Last December when Network Rail asked me to install PQ monitoring I looked at hiring a couple of [competitor] PQ monitors. I had a Network Rail Graduate alongside me and I thought it would be a good learning exercise for him. As I began to understand the railway electrification system I realised [these] were a non-starter, so when the local electricity board ‘turned the screw’ I decided to look deeper.
I discovered Outram and when I read about your collaboration with Scottish Power I immediately realised the Outram equipment was the only one to consider. From what I have seen since yesterday morning I know I was correct in contacting your company.
The analyser did everything that we needed. We were also impressed with how quickly it got across the US.
The analyser did everything that we needed. Rob was surprised at how easily it went on.
We were also impressed with how quickly it got across the US. It was there before we even left [the UK] and we didn’t expect that to happen.
It’s a specialised subject and the support we received from Duncan was second to none.
Fault Level Monitors to Validate ENWL RESPOND Project Network models
Fault level monitors – Outram fault level monitors have been installed at seven [Electricity North West] Respond [Project] sites. These monitors will validate our network model and the Fault Level Assessment Tool. Electricity North West Ltd RESPOND Project Newsletter, May 2016.
The Outram PM7000FLM … software made analysis of fault-current straightforward
We found the Outram PM7000FLM useful for capturing data, and its software made analysis of fault-current straightforward. Other methods of data capture can be used, but would require further development to accurately give fault level information; the area where the FLM scores is its ease of use, and also that statistical analysis is applied over the whole test period, rather than at a ‘snapshot’ of one event as our analysis. This makes it less prone to noise and other disturbances on the system.
“These [PM7000s] really are pucker units”
Following successful measurements using 2 of our PM7000 Power Quality Hire units…
“We captured some good stuff, these [PM7000s] really are pucker units.”

….Commendable for its ease of use and portability
The Outram equipment is commendable for its ease of use and portability.
Bluetooth functionality with PMScreen and real time monitoring is sensational.
Thank you so much for attending to [my support query], and so quickly! Very impressed with these [PM3000] power analysers and the Bluetooth functionality with PMScreen and real time monitoring is sensational.
