BLACKBOX Fixed Power Quality Analyzer, 16 GB Storage Capacity

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Elspec


Description :

The revolutionary Elspec G4000 BLACKBOX is the next generation in power quality analyzers. The G4K provides accurate detection and isolation of power quality monitoring for effective preventive maintenance. No Triggers/No Thresholds meaning no missed events. The G4k records all network parameters for up to a year. In addtion to real-time monitoring with PQZIP, a patented data compression algorithm, the G4000 Power Quality Analyzer BLACKBOX stores onboard all the waveforms of every network cycle for up to a year at up to 1,024 samples per cycle resolution, eliminating the need for thresholds, triggers, or parameter setting for logging. The G4000 BLACKBOX Power Quality Analyzer calculates RMS, harmonics, and all desired values from waveforms in post-processing. The total number of parameters is practically unlimited. A unique time synchronization algorithm assures that logged data from multiple units is synchronized and displayed on the same time scale with typical 0.1 ms resolution.
