New Video Tutorials for Electrocorder Data Loggers are Online

Press release date: April 4, 2012

Tutorials for Operating New Current and Voltage Dataloggers Electrical contractors, energy audit consultants, facilities managers and industrial and power distribution companies all require an inexpensive solution for their energy and power metering needs. Now exciting electronics manufacturer Electrocorder has produced a collection of video tutorials showing users how to quickly get started using their line of current and voltage data logger products. The videos cover common topics including connecting the data logger to a PC, basic operation, configuration and setup, data recovery, recording voltage, energy and pump activity, and more. As the new distributor for Electrocorder, CAS DataLoggers offers customers one to three channel, single phase and three phase models with a variety of recording ranges, sold in data logging kits complete with everything customers need to handle a large variety of recording applications, all at a low price. The tutorial videos have recently been posted online and may be viewed at These popular products include the EC-6VA three-phase datalogger kit which records both energy and power (voltage and current), with three voltage channels measuring from 30V to 500Vac and three current channels measuring up to 400A, 1kA, 2kA or 3kAac. Using the Electrocorder kit, users can view onsite power consumption given in kilowatt hours as a result of logging. This current and high-voltage solution sees frequent use in several applications including energy auditing, power metering to measure and prove energy savings opportunities to customers, and monitoring/tuning power consumption and carbon emissions. Measuring from 30V to 300V at single phase, the data logger itself is rated IP43 and is also available in IP65 and NEMA 12/4 versions. The datalogger comes in a fully-equipped kit which includes the logger itself, 4 voltage leads, 3 Rogowski coils, a USB lead, free software, and a convenient carrying case. When only a single phase voltage supply is easily accessible, the EC-6VA can still be used to monitor and record 3-phase energy using its three current inputs and a single phase voltage input rather than the normal 3 voltage inputs. The datalogger also features USB connectivity using its provided USB lead. Extremely low-priced for the market and much more cost-effective than leading products, the kit also enables customers to identify voltage supply faults and power spikes, especially during the fault-prone season. Most other products on the market briefly wake up to take a single 'snapshot' sample but then go back to sleep, missing nearly all the critical information users need! The new Electrocorder kit utilizes a constant data sampling technique which samples every cycle multiple times to provide up to 300 days of continuous recording, missing very little data and enabling truly comprehensive metering. Additionally, FREE Electrosoft software is also provided in the kit, allowing users to define the voltage so they can plot power and energy and then simply upload recorded data via USB to a PC for analysis with Electrosoft.
