Electrical loggers help cut energy costs

Home Engineering Automation & Control Electrical loggers help cut energy costs

ENERGY is a significant cost at any industrial facility, and while managers view it as an unavoidable expense, it’s really a variable cost that can be monitored  and managed, significantly improving the bottom line.

That’s according to Comtest, which says it’s Fluke 1732/1734 Three-Phase Energy Loggers are designed to easily identify sources of electrical energy waste.

Easy set-up and use and the ability to capture key measurements — like voltage, current, power, power factor, plus variables like temperature — enable managers to understand energy usage and correlate it to activities.

“Data can be viewed from anywhere via the Fluke Connect mobile App, potentially reducing the number of times a technician must open a panel while wearing full protective equipment,” the company said in a statement.

The loggers also include new Energy Analyze Plus App software, “delivering more advanced analysis capabilities to better correlate data, making for better decisions”.

They are rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III, “the highest in industry, for safe use at the service entrance and downstream”.
