PM1000 Power Quality Analyser

PM1000 Power Quality Analyser

Single phase power quality, harmonics and flicker monitor.

The PM1000 is ideal for responding to residential voltage complaints and power consumption problems

About the PM1000

The PowerMaster 1000 Single Phase Logger is a 3-channel data logging system built into an easy to carry housing. It is ideal for responding to residential voltage complaints and power consumption problems. It is particularly useful for troubleshooting.

It monitors line to neutral and neutral to earth voltages and one current signal that accepts rogowski coils or traditional current clamps. Flicker Measurements are made to IEC 61000-4-15.

Data is retrieved via an infra-red or (optional) Bluetooth serial port. Date and time, recording length, recording mode, sample rate, math channel usage and more can be configured from a laptop or personal computer via the serial port.

Simply plug the PM1000 into the mains or attach to the power to be measured and it will start to record automatically. You can configure it in advance and store ‘set ups’ on the computer or on the logger.

Key Features Include

  • The patented Single Cycle Adaptive Storage™ recording process provides extremely high resolution over long recording periods.
  • Measures current up to 1,000 Amps and voltage between 0 and 270 Volts on a single phase power supply.
  • Flicker measurements to IEC61000-4-15 (Optional): Instantaneous Flicker Sensation, Short Term and Long Term Flicker Perceptibility.
  • Records and displays up to 16 channels of voltage, current, power, power factor, VAR’s, phase angle, frequency, THD, and much more.
  • The degree of synchronisation observable between recorded parameters e.g. volts and current can help to determine the source of the disturbance i.e. upstream or downstream.
  • Comprehensive range of math functions give excellent data analysis.
  • Data is retrieved with ease via an infra-red or (optional) Bluetooth serial port.
  • Bi-colour status LEDs, externally visible, show recording/memory/voltage/power conditions.
  • 13 pre-stored configurations allow you to get started straight out of the bag.
  • Comes with Pronto for Windows software, one of the most highly regarded data recovery and analysis packages available.

Safety & Measurement Standards

IEC 61010 (300V Cat III, Pollution level 2), CE, IEC 61326 (EMC), IEC 61000-4-15.

Applications include:

Trouble shooting unknown power quality issues – Our unique recording regime Adaptive Store is especially useful for helping to locate, detect, and prevent problems on your single phase network, recording down to a single cycle the instant events occur without setting any thresholds. Unique precise capturing of sudden changes e.g. transients, current spikes, harmonics, drop-outs and brown-outs to high resolution make identifying problems on your power distribution system easier and quicker saving you time and money.

Energy Monitoring

Simple Power Quality Monitoring – Solve customer complaints including voltage or flicker problems using the ability to compare and relate any data streams on the same graph in the Outram/Ranger Software, Pronto. E.g. RMS voltage and instantaneous flicker sensation (and any others) on the same graph. Finding the problem quickly using Adaptive Store recording regime means minimum customer disruption. Measure THD to the 25th.

Power Quality Software: Our comprehensive and very flexible Pronto software is the same for all Outram/Ranger Equipment so even when hiring a variety of models you will still use the same software each time.

Recent hire applications include:

  • Domestic load monitoring
  • Residential Flicker Complaint
  • Single Phase Energy Consumption

…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.
