Dranetz Expands the Dranetz HDPQ Product Line by Introducing IP65 (Weather/Hardened) Versions of the Dranetz HDPQ Visa and Guide Power Quality, Demand and Energy Instruments
New Dranetz HDPQ® Visa SP and Guide SP instruments provide an IP65 enclosure option to the Dranetz HDPQ family of Power Quality, Demand and Energy instruments. Users can now choose between the portable Dranetz HDPQ instrument with a 7” color touch display, or a new IP65 SP version without a display for outdoor, harsh and remote applications, or applications where a display is undesirable!
Dranetz Technologies introduces the new IP65 rated Dranetz HDPQ Visa SP and Guide SP instruments that are intended for use in harsh, outdoor and remote environments, or for applications where an LCD display is undesirable. Dranetz HDPQ users can now choose between a traditional portable instrument with a local 7” color touch LCD display or an SP version that is housed in an IP65 enclosure without a local LCD display. Other than the enclosure and the availability of a local display, the HDPQ portable (with 7” display) and new SP (IP65 without display) versions of each model (Visa or Guide) have exactly the same measurement and strong remote communications capabilities.
“It’s all about choices and user preferences” said Ross Ignall, Dranetz Director of Product Management. “Our users can now choose the enclosure type that best fits their needs without sacrificing the measurement capabilities that they expect from Dranetz. If the primary use is in harsh or remote applications, the new IP65 SP models directly fulfills this requirement, without adding the cost and bulk of an IP65 enclosure formerly required to protect portable instruments. The new Dranetz HDPQ SP instruments take advantage of the industry leading communication capabilities of the Dranetz HDPQ product family and allow users to fully control the instrument remotely from any PC, tablet or smartphone, eliminating the need for a local LCD display.”
The Dranetz HDPQ Family of Power Quality, Demand & Energy instruments not only offers the industry’s best measurement capabilities, but also have the most powerful communications capabilities in the industry. The powerful communications available in the Dranetz HDPQ line enhances the end users Productivity and Safety by allowing users to control the instrument and download data remotely – Users no longer have to expose themselves to hazardous environments and can now manage their power surveys remotely from the safety and comfort of their offices or other more desirable locations.
