CAS DataLoggers to Introduce New Power and Energy Logger
Press release date: October 22, 2012
Low Cost 1-3 Phase Logger Enables Power Factoring for Energy Savings
CHESTERLAND OH–CAS DataLoggers has partnered with AEMC to announce the new PEL 102, a low cost one, two (split phase) and three phase (Y, Δ) power/energy data logger. This product is ideal for electricians, engineers and contractors working in building and system monitoring and upgrades, as well as residential energy audits. The new logger measures, stores and analyzes all vital energy data every second to give users a highly accurate view. Users can measure efficiency by using power factoring to find potential savings, verify reliability/operation of electrical machinery, track sub-billing occupants for energy costs, and perform many more projects. For clear data organization and presentation, reports can be generated with only minimal configuration time and effort. CAS DataLoggers expects to have these loggers in inventory shortly and offers them with free tech support, supplying users with a flexible solution backed by expert assistance.
The new power logger’s compact design enables it to be quickly installed in a load center panel (including all current sensors) and still allow the door to close on most panels. The PEL 102 offers all the essential functions for logging power/energy data from most electrical power networks in use today, measuring and recording three voltage inputs and current inputs, Watts, VARS, VA and energy (kWh and kVA). Power factor, displacement power factor, crest factor, frequency and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) are also calculated and recorded. The logger also enables measurement, calculation and display of the harmonics up to the 50th order for 50/60 Hz and 7th order for 400Hz. All variables are recorded and stored at a one second interval and on user-selectable demand intervals from 1 to 60 minutes. The logger also comes delivered in a compact and rugged case.
All connected current sensors are automatically recognized. Energy costs can be calculated and displayed quickly and easily just by specifying the unit cost for a kilowatt hour. Data is stored on a removable SD card and can also be retrieved using a USB, Bluetooth and/or Ethernet (local or internet) connection or transporting the SD card back to the download PC.
These data loggers include FREE comprehensive DataView® software providing fast configuration and the ability to view/retrieve data from several hundred PEL instruments on a local network or over the internet allowing users to evaluate energy usage on a department or facility basis anywhere in the world. DataView® allows viewing of real-time measurements and stored data downloads for analysis and report generation.
