DIGITAL PHASE DETECTOR PD3259-50

Digital Phase Rotation Meter with Three-Phase Voltage Measurement Functionality

NEW

Hioki’s non-contact voltage detection and measurement technology places efficiency and safety as priority considerations with the goal of protecting customers that need to conduct on-site electrical work as part of renovations and expansions of manufacturing plants and buildings.
The PD3259-50 Digital Phase Detector lets you to measure three-phase voltage and detect phase sequence simultaneously by just clipping onto covered cables, ensuring absolutely no contact with metal parts for maximum safety.

CAT IV 600 V

Easy! Just connect the optional Z3210 Wireless Adapter to your Hioki compatible instrument, to make it Bluetooth® ready.

Wirelessly connect Hioki-compliant instruments with a simple connection.
Transmit measured values to your tablet or smartphone.

How to Use the Hioki Digital Phase Detector PD3259-50

In the past, four steps have been necessary in order to check a 3-phase power circuit: one set of measurements to check the phases with a phase detector, and three line-voltage measurements (one for each phase) made with a tester. The Digital Phase Detector PD3259-50 replaces this process with a single, no-metal-contact measurement step that can be made simply by affixing three clamp sensors. The instrument quickly displays the phase detection results and three phase voltage values.

Just clip the wire

The measurement can be taken simply by cliping the wire.

Safe measurement without contact with metal

There is no metal exposure on the sensor.
You can measure safely without touching metal.

Display on a large screen

Phase detection check and line-to-line voltage inspection at the same time.

Light and sound notification

A red light and a continuous buzzer sounds to indicate the Negative phase.

You can switch screens and check the frequency.

Place the instrument to the wall

The Magnetic Strap Z5020 (optional) can be used to hang and fix the instrument to the wall.

Color clips are included to help identify the code
