Manual Specifications

The Dranetz-BMI PowerXplorer™ PX5 is a portable, hand-held, eight-channel power quality meter/monitor. This cutting-edge power quality instrument is designed with a color liquid crystal display (LCD) 1/4 VGA, using touch screen technology. It can monitor, record and display data on four voltage channels and four current channels simultaneously.

The Dranetz PX5 is designed to meet both the IEEE 1159 and IEC 61000-4-30 Class A standards for accuracy and measurement requirements. It can do PQ-optimized acquisition of power quality related disturbances and events. It is designed with a statistical package called Quality of Supply (QOS), with monitoring and setup protocols set to determine voltage measurement compliance required for EN50160 monitoring. European standard EN50160 requires that measurement parameters must be within a specified percentage for 95% of the time.

The Dranetz PX5-Xfast PowerXplorer Power Quality Meter is equipped with the high speed sampling analog board for microsecond transient detection digitization and analysis. The PX5-XFAST performs measurements for 50/60 Hz power frequency systems.
