The Dranetz HDPQ Guide (Portable) and Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP (IP65) power quality analyzers offer the best combination of value & technology from Dranetz, or any other PQ analyzer available! It includes all of the features of the Dranetz HDPQ Visa instruments, but adds Wi-Fi communications, AnswerModules®, and a 10,000 cycle recording buffer for fault and inrush recording!

The Dranetz HDPQ Guide and Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP are the exact same instrument, but are in different enclosures. The Dranetz HDPQ Guide is a true hand-held portable instrument with a built in 7″, tablet-like touch LCD display. The Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP has the same measurement and communications capabilities, but is housed in an IP65 enclosure without an LCD display, and can also be powered by the circuit being measured. The IP65 enclosure of the Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP greatly expands the applications of the Dranetz HDPQ Guide into outdoor and harsh environments, along with other applications where an LCD display is undesirable.

The Dranetz HDPQ Guide and Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP Power Quality Analyzers provides you the best in class power quality monitoring capabilities available. They measure to all current industry standards, including IEC 61000-4-30 Class A, IEC 61000-4-7, IEEE 1159, IEEE 519, IEEE 1459, and more. Equipped with 8 independent channels, automated setups provide instant detection of circuits and configurations, ensuring that the instrument is ready to successfully collect data in seconds. Users can select the length and mode of data collection, including troubleshooting, data logging, power quality surveys, energy, and load balancing. The Intelligent AnswerModule® feature provides consultant-like analysis of sag directivity, capacitor switching transient identification/directivity, and motor analysis/reporting.

The Dranetz HDPQ Guide and Dranetz HDPQ Guide SP enable users to review data and change settings remotely from virtually any smartphone, tablet and mobile device, as well as with traditional PC and MAC laptops and desktops. Just hook up the instrument, close the cabinets to the ‘safe’ environment, and use either the VNC interface along with our Dran-View 7 software, or our Dranetz HDPQ Apple or Android Apps via Ethernet or W-Fi for remote control from anywhere with connectivity to the instrument.
