The New World Standard for Power Quality Analysis, with recording & analyzing
The PW3198 can measure all waveforms of power, harmonic, and error events simultaneously. When a problem occurs with the equipment or system on your site, the PW3198 will help you detect the cause of the problem early and solve it quickly. You can depend on the PW3198 to monitor all aspects of your power supplies.
The PW3198 can simultaneously record 8, 000 or more parameters, such as voltage, current, power, power factor, frequency, integral power, harmonic, and flicker, at the specified recording interval. The PW3198 never fails to capture the peak because it performs calculations continuously and records the maximum, minimum, and average values within the recording interval.
Compliance with the IEC 61000-4-30 Class A international power quality standard and dramatically improved measurement reliability - Compliance with the IEC 61000-4-30 Class A international standard on power quality measurement, which stipulates the most stringent requirements in the field, points to the PW3198’ s unparalleled functionality and reliability. To comply with the standard, the instrument delivers basic voltage measurement precision of 0.1% , an improvement of 200% over the previous model.
Simple configuration function for intuitive operation - The PW3198 incorporates a user-friendly configuration function that automatically selects the necessary measurement items once the user has chosen a measurement pattern, for example abnormal voltage detection. This capability eliminates the need for the user to configure a series of complex settings, significantly improving the instrument’ s convenience.
Extended measurement capability thanks to flexible use of SD cards ( 2 GB card bundled with product) - The need for continuous monitoring in power quality measurement applications makes extended recording capability a must. The PW3198 ships standard with a 2 GB SD card that allows continuous measurement for up to 55 weeks.
Improved safety thanks to CAT IV 600 V compliance - Whereas the PW3198’ s predecessor POWER QUALITY ANALYZER 3196 offered a CAT III 600 V safety level as defined by IEC 61010, the new PW3198 complies with CAT IV 600 V requirements. The higher level of protection enables the instrument to safely measure incoming power lines.
