Analyzer helps solve power quantity and quality problems.

Press Release Summary:



Portable PA-9Plus trends flicker measurements PST/PLT while continuing to record events, RMS voltage/current trending, power, energy, waveforms, and harmonics. It records power quality and flow information simultaneously, which is viewed via backlit LCD graphics display and can be downloaded to computer via serial interface or removable Flash Memory Module. Unit uses Phase Lock Loop technology and includes MEGPA9IEC software and remote test log function.

Help 'Keep the Lights On' With the New Capabilities of the PA-9Plus Power Quality Analyzer


The PA-9Plus Portable Power Quality Analyzer with its latest firmware, software and enhanced capabilities addresses the international IEC61000 and EN50160 series of power quality and delivery standards used around the world. The PA-9Plus trends important flicker measurements PST/PLT, while continuing to record events, RMS voltage/current trending, power, energy, waveforms, and harmonics.

The PA-9Plus records power quality and power flow information simultaneously. The recorded information can be viewed via the built-in graphics display, downloaded to a computer using the serial interface and optional modem, or transferred using the optional removable Flash Memory Module.

The new Phase Lock Loop (PLL) technology featured in the PA-9Plus increases the instrument's frequency measurement range and offers an auto-ranging frequency measurement and recording over a 20 to 70 Hz input range. The PA-9Plus also trends frequency over time, a useful feature for both utilities and service companies.

A large, backlit LCD confirms setup information and real-time status, phasors, frequency, harmonics, harmonic power, voltage, current, per phase and total power/energy data, and minimums/maximums by phase. From data already recorded, charts of trended voltages, currents, waveform graphs, and reports of historical out-of-limits information by event type may be viewed.

The newly enhanced MEGPA9IEC software for setup, configuration, communications, charting, and reporting continues to be included at no cost with every PA-9Plus purchased. MEGPA9IEC includes a remote test log function to preview charts, events, reports, and waveforms prior to actual download. This preview function also includes the capability to select and download only the data content and time frame relevant to the investigation being performed, thus dramatically reducing the download time required. Optional enhanced report generation software, METREPORT, may also be purchased separately for creating custom-tailored reports.

From substations, to commercial and industrial, to residential monitoring, the PA-9Plus is your comprehensive "first line of defense" for analyzing and solving power quantity and power quality problems.
