THE POWERSIGHT PS4500 POWER QUALITY ANALYZER is te best choice if you are looking for a versatile, easy-to-use power monitor suitable for all types of power studies. It is a data logger, energy and demand meter, power quality moniter, harmonics analyzer and "live-view" scope and multimeter- all in one! PS4500 Brochure/Data Sheet It can:

  • Catch power quality events such as fast transients (impulses) to 8us, voltage sags (dips), and swells.
  • Track total harmonic distortion to the 63rd harmonic.
  • Record energy use (kWh), and log all power parameters: such as watts, va var and pf.
  • Data log RMS voltage and current over time (days/weeks/months) with cycle-by-cycle resolution.
  • Display real time values in meter window- just like a multimeter.
  • Display oscilloscope, waveforms, harmonic spectra, phasors vis a PC + Bluetooth wireless communication.
  • Measure DC voltage and current
  • Monitor 50 Hz, 60Hz or 400Hz systems

It's rubberized contoured case and rugged construction make the PS4500 ideal for field work. Clearly labeled buttons display present values on a back-lit LCD window for quickly making spot measurements at panels and equipment. Its SureStart feature automatically checks for wrong connections before you begin monitoring to ensure a successful power study every time. Data is saved to internal memory that can be downloaded to a PC via Bluetooth. Alternatively, the PS4500 includes a removable SD memory card slot (to 2GB capacity) that allows you to backup power survey data and transfer the data to a PC via an SD card. PC software and Report Writer are included.

High-speed sampling to 8us offers high performance for capturing spikes and transients. Cycle-by-cycle recording provides greatest accuracy for data logging and recording voltage fluctuations. Continuous sampling ensures no cycle is missed.

The new safety regulations demand safer tools. The PowerSight PS4500 has a a CAT-IV (600V/8000V) safety rating -- the best choice for working on systems to 600VRMS.

PowerSight meters and analyzers with Bluetooth wireless communications are the safest way to test. After installing the PowerSight and its probes, workers can get away from high voltages and Arc Flash dangers and test remotely. Once at a safe distance cumbersome PPE suits, hoods, gloves etc. can be removed. Thus workers can more comfortably control the PowerSight, view connections, phasors, and real-time values, start/stop monitoring and download data in complete safety (up to 25 feet away) via a PC, netbook. or PDA. With a CAT-IV Safety rating (600V/800V) you can confidently use the PS4500 on systems up to 600 VRMS. Bluetooth wireless communications allows remote control via a PC or netbook, up to 25 feet away.
