POWER QUALITY ANALYZER PQ3100

3-Phase 4-Wire Power Quality Analyzer Compliant to IEC61000-4-30 Class S Standards and On-screen Guide to Deliver Easy Setup and Testing

Hioki portable power meters and analyzers are best in class power measuring instruments for measuring single to three-phase lines with a high degree of precision and accuracy. The PQ3100 is a comprehensive but easy-to-use power quality analyzer for monitoring and recording power supply anomalies, allowing their causes to be quickly investigated, and also for assessing power supply problems such as voltage drops, flicker, harmonics, and other electrical issues.

How to Use Power Quality Analyzers: Recording the Power Quality of a Power Grid

The Hioki PQ3100 Power Quality Analyzer measures all power parameters including voltage, current, power, harmonics, and flicker simultaneously along the same time axis, giving it the ability to capture all power anomalies such as intermittent power interruptions, voltage drops and frequency fluctuations while recording the power trend.

Key Features

  • Record data including voltage, current, power, harmonics, and flicker simultaneously along a single time axis
  • Measure up to 6000 A AC
  • Capture all power anomalies, including instantaneous outages, voltage drops, and frequency fluctuations, while simultaneously recording trend data
  • Quick Set: Easy-to-understand on-screen guide for measurement procedures
  • Bundled PQ ONE application software makes it easy to create reports
  • Record waveforms for up to 1 second before and 10 seconds after an anomaly occurs
  • Accurately measure DC currents over extended periods of time (with an AC/DC auto-zero current sensor)
  • Directly supply power to connected current sensors
  • Send measured values to Hioki data loggers using a Bluetooth® wireless technology compatible adapter (LR8410 Link-compatible products), Ver. 2.0 and later
