Fluke’s Must Have Power Quality Analyzer


You need a new power analyzer, but which one should you get? There are so many options available online that it can be difficult to choose. A number of power quality parameters are used to evaluate power quality. This is a good place to start. The most common parameters handled by today’s instruments are voltage, sags/swells, current, energy, harmonics, and transients. It is nearly impossible to predict the specific type of disturbance that will cause a fault condition. The more different types of disturbances an instrument handles, the more likely it is that the disturbance can be identified, or that certain types of disturbances can be excluded. As a result, begin your search with a power analyzer that can handle everything!


Power supply stability is a critical component of the infrastructure that supports modern society. A power quality analyzer measures electric power signals in order to determine the load’s ability to function properly with that power. Electrical equipment may fail prematurely or malfunction if not supplied with adequate power. Technicians must maintain and manage power supply quality on a daily basis in order to detect and correct power supply problems as soon as possible. There are numerous factors that contribute to poor power quality. Harmonic distortion, a disturbance related to integer multiples of the fundamental power frequency, can also be measured by a power quality analyzer (60 Hz).


Fluke 1775

The Fluke 1775 is a power quality troubleshooter and logger in one. It assesses the fundamental power quality variables that are required to assess the overall power quality health of the electrical system. It also displays the waveform detail in context, with graphed RMS values and 1MHz transient waveforms. The setup for measurements and logging is simple and dependable.


Key Uses of the Product

  • High speed voltage transient capture – Capture harmful high-speed transients so that you can mitigate their effects before your equipment fails.
  • Automatically measure power and power quality parameters – Without any additional setup or selections, critical power quality data is captured as soon as you start a session.
  • Intuitive user interface – At the touch of a button, you can switch between measurement parameters such as V/A/Hz, power, dips and swells, harmonics, or power quality health.
  • Analysis and reporting – Fluke Energy Analyze Plus software is included, allowing you to create customized reports or use built-in one-click reporting to industry standards such as EN 50160, IEEE 519, and GOST 33073.
  • Higher Harmonics – The need to measure harmonics above the 50th has become increasingly important as more disturbing harmonic loads, such as inverters supplying power and motor drives consuming power, are added.
  • Ultimate measurement confidence – The Fluke 1770 Series are 2-in-1 handheld devices that combine the troubleshooting functionality of a power quality meter with the robust analysis and logging capabilities of a standalone power quality analyzer.
  • Measure power quality in accordance with the most stringent IEC61000-4-30 Class A standard.
  • Capture dips, swells, and interruptions, as well as the presence and cause of transients.
  • Conduct harmonic studies to determine the effects of disruptive loads on your network.
  • Determine the sources of energy waste and losses in your facility.
