EDISON, NJ, USA — August 25, 2020 — Dranetz Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of power monitoring instrumentation, software, and associated services, is pleased to announce a new portable energy and Power Quality (PQ) logger.
DranXperT is a low cost, accurate, lightweight, 3-phase power & energy logger for use in virtually any portable/temporary power monitoring application to determine power and energy usage. DranXperT’s capabilities include:
- Measures all common power parameters (V, I, W, VA, VAR, PF, demand, energy, etc.)
- Highly accurate 4-quadrant, bidirectional meter to measure the direction of power flow in DER/alternative energy and other applications
- Unique, 1 cycle PQ detection capabilities – records the RMS envelope of common PQ problems such as sags/dips, swells, and interruptions using the same techniques of much more costly instruments
- Harmonic measurements for voltage & current
- Free, unlicensed Dran-View XP software for analysis and reporting
Being a “Dranetz,” DranXperT is not only a complete power and energy logger, but can also detect PQ problems to 1 AC cycle using the ½ cycle measurement methods of IEC 61000-4-30 Class S. DranXperT’s measurements are second-to-none, and no other meter in this price class can come close to its capabilities.
DranXperT can be used in any local or remote power monitoring application. By using a standard Ethernet connection, DranXperT easily connects directly to a computer, or to a local/private/corporate network, and even the Internet. All real-time and recorded data is accessible by using a web browser on any computer, smartphone, or tablet with connectivity to the meter. Analysis and reporting is available by using Dran-View XP PC software. Dran-View XP is a free (unlicensed) version of our popular Dran-View software that was developed solely for use with DranXperT.
DranXperT is available in kits that include all needed accessories, such as voltage cables/clips, current transformers, and Dran-View XP software.
DranXperT will be available for shipment in mid-September with a 2- to 4-week lead time.
