New Power Quality Meters
Emerson Network Power has introduced the family of ASCO 5400 Series power quality meters designed to capture every event that occurs in on-site power systems, no matter how fast or small.
Continuous, high-speed wave form recording and transient harmonic displays are what enable the ASCO Power Quality Meters to capture and present complete data on sags, swells and other events, the company said. The meters also track and store data on time-of-day energy consumption, flicker, crest and K-factor. Emerson Power Network said the meters aggregate and synchronize events from multiple meters to the millisecond with ITIC1 compliance curves. Continuous wave form recording eliminates setting thresholds, triggers and events.
PowerQuest Analytics, which are part of ASCO PowerQuest 5790 and 5900 Critical Power Management Systems, are designed to enable facility managers to use the data to accurately diagnose events and identify underlying issues for resolution.
Tools in the software that capture events and analyze power quality also help facility managers diagnose how efficiently their facilities are operating. They then have the insight on how to reduce energy and infrastructure costs, and increase overall reliability.
