New Fluke 1730 three-phase electrical energy logger simplifies the discovery of electrical energy waste



Intuitive energy logger helps facility managers and electrical professionals develop and implement cost-saving strategies

September 19, 2013 – Fluke Corporation introduces the Fluke 1730 Three-Phase Energy Logger, an intuitive, easy-to-use tool with professional-level, energy-data gathering capabilities. The Fluke 1730 breaks new ground by enabling a broader category of multi-disciplinary maintenance professionals to confidently gather energy data, while the accompanying Fluke Energy Analyse software scales from the analysis and reporting needs of the facility manager to the advanced analytical requirements of electrical engineers.

Even well-run facilities can experience energy waste, most commonly through equipment and system inefficiencies or by operating at expensive times of day on the utility rate schedule. Detecting those wastes requires logging energy consumption over time, using expensive power quality analysers operated by engineers with advanced training. Unfortunately, those cost and skill barriers have made energy audits impractical for many facilities.

The Fluke 1730 Energy Logger changes that; a streamlined energy logging tool with a straightforward, intuitive design, the Fluke 1730 lets technicians load studies and energy logging right out of the box. The results provide facility managers with the information necessary to identify and prioritise energy saving projects.

The compact energy logger conducts key measurements of voltage, current, power and power factor to identify areas of energy waste. All measured values are logged automatically and can be reviewed during logging. Common setup errors are rectified, through re-engineered cables, digital check and auto-correct of all connections and an on-screen wizard for interval setup. It has the highest safety rating in the industry (600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III), can be powered directly from the measured circuit eliminating the need to find a power outlet and has two USB ports for fast data downloads to PCs or standard thumb drives.

Data logged by the 1730 can be imported into the Fluke Energy Analyse software for further processing and archiving. The software lets users analyse energy or load profiles including zoom-in and zoom-out on details, add comments, pictures and other information to data, overlay different logging sessions, create reports and export measurement results.
