EDISON, NJ, USA — April 6, 2021 — Dranetz Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Rogowski coil (Flex) current transformer (CT) support to the DranXperT portable energy and Power Quality (PQ) logger.
DranXperT is a low cost, accurate, 3-phase power & PQ logger used to determine power and energy usage. The addition of Rogowski CT’s expands the already wide range of applications of DranXperT. CT’s are an important power measurement accessory and DranXperT now offers the widest range of CT choices on the market. It’s compatible with Dranetz Flex and hinged CT’s, as well as any CT with a standard 333mv output. The new Flex CT’s are available in a wide range of current measurement ranges and lengths to meet virtually any application.
DranXperT Flex CT support is included in new meter shipments and is available to existing users via a firmware update. Contact Dranetz technical support for upgrade information.
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
- Web enabled user interface
- Harmonic measurements for voltage & current
- 7hr battery
- 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.
