Quasar Portable Meters are an extremely accurate and cost-effective solution for facilities needing the quick collection of data to assist in decision making. The Portable Meter contains an ION9000T power meter, the world’s most accurate meter, which measures and logs power quality events including transients, harmonics, flicker and sag/swell as well as energy data.
The simple and quick installation of our portable meters enables on-site identification of issues and load profile recording over a period of time, while access to our software and team of experts, ensures you receive actionable insights into your electrical system.
Once the portable meter is installed, the data will immediately get sent to Power Monitoring Expert (PME) software that is hosted by Quasar. You will receive a login to PME and a training session on how to access and interpret data, and then at any time you will be able to access PME to view your dashboards and reporting. Once your hire period is finished, you’ll meet with our team to discuss the data collected and any issues that were uncovered.
Portable Meter Features
High-speed Transient Detection
High-speed voltage transients can impact a facility’s electrical system, by stressing electrical insulation and damaging sensitive electronics, ultimately leading to poor performance, gradual breakdown, or abrupt failure.
Our portable meters feature:
Power Quality Analysis
Complies with recognized power quality monitoring standards:
Extended waveform capture (1s pre-event data / 3s event data @1024 s/c), and high-speed RMS data capture for in-depth analysis of any PQ disturbance in your power system including:
Patented disturbance direction detection (DDD) to identify event root cause, helping you to identify with some confidence whether the event was caused internally or came through to your site from your supply.
