Power and Energy Data Loggers help find areas for savings.
Press Release Summary:
November 30, 2012 - Available with or without backlit digital display, PEL 100 Series Single/Split/Three-Phase Loggers measure and record voltage, current, Watts, VARS, VA, and energy as well as power factor, displacement power factor, crest factor, frequency, and THD. All variables are stored once per second or at user-selectable demand intervals from 1–60 min. Data is stored on removable SD card and can be retrieved using USB, Bluetooth, and/or Ethernet connection or by transporting SD card back to PC.
Original Press Release
AEMC® Introduces Two NEW Single/Three-Phase Power & Energy Data Loggers Models PEL 102 & PEL 103
Press release date: November 29, 2012
The PEL 100 series is a low cost, simple to use, one, two (split phase) and three-phase (Y, Δ) power and energy data logger. It is available in two models, Model PEL 102 (no display) or Model PEL 103 (with a backlit digital display).
This product is ideal for electricians, engineers and contractors doing work in the area of building and system monitoring and upgrades, as well as residential and overall energy audits. All vital energy data is easily measured, recorded and analyzed. Reports can be generated with confidence and with minimal configuration time and effort.
The instrument’s design enables it to be installed inside a load center panel (including the current sensors) and still allow the door to close on most panels. The PEL 100 series power and energy loggers measure and record voltage, current, Watts, VARS, VA and Energy (kWh and kVA). Power Factor, Displacement Power Factor, Crest Factor, Frequency and THD are recorded as well. Individual harmonic % information from 1 to the 50th harmonic are recorded at the operator’s choice. All variables are stored once per second as well as user selectable demand intervals from 1 to 60 minutes. Energy costs can be calculated and displayed quickly and easily by simply inputting the unit cost for a kilowatt hour into the software. Data is stored on a removable SD card and can be retrieved using a USB, Bluetooth and/or Ethernet (local or internet) connection or by transporting the SD card back to a PC. The comprehensive DataView® software (included) provides the ability to view data from several hundred PEL 100 series instruments on a local network or over the internet, allowing the user to evaluate energy usage in a department or facility basis or anywhere in the world. Measurements to be viewed in real-time on a PC and stored data to be downloaded for analysis and report generation.
