Electrical Engineers, Facility Managers and Contractors install the new PQube from Power Standards Lab (Alameda, California, USA) to record power quality events and energy consumption in panels and electrical equipment. The PQube pinpoints the root causes of electrical malfunctions in PLCs, pumps and compressors, Panels, HVAC controls, automation machinery and robotics.
The PQube also accurately tracks energy and carbon emissions, making energy audits a breeze.
The new PQube recorder is tiny, one tenth the size and one fifth the cost of comparable traditional instruments, making it perfect for embedding. It has an easy-to-use color organic LED (OLED) display and advanced Ethernet-based remote monitoring, email reporting, G3 wireless communication and there is no expensive proprietary software required.
Despite its tiny size and low cost, the PQube measures voltage and current with lab-grade accuracy. It detects all power quality glitches including voltage sags, interruptions, voltage swells, harmonics, frequency variations, and high-frequency impulses. The patent-pending technology automatically adjusts to every frequency – 50 Hz, 60 Hz, and 400 Hz – and every standard voltage in the world, from 100V in Japanese homes to 690V in Australian mines. The PQube happily works with single-phase and three-phase systems.
The PQube is available from Power Standards Lab starting at $1,495.
