  • II. Power Sensor- PQ1

    Overview

    PQ1 power quality sensor detects sags, swells, interruptions, and impulses in as short as 500 nanoseconds. And because of its low price, you can buy ten to twenty for the price of a single traditional power quality monitor. It’s your go-to sensor to quickly defend against power quality problems.

    Adaptable, Reliable, Inexpensive

    PQ1 detects in 500 nanoseconds, higher impulse and voltage swell events, and significant and minor voltage sags. It immediately signals each event from the front panel LEDs as well as to a computer log file using relay contacts. Our power quality sensor adapts to international voltages between 100VAC and 240VAC, and operates at 50 Hz, 60 Hz, and 400 Hz. Higher voltages, including utility distribution voltages and input voltages up to 600 vrms can be monitored by hooking it up to an external transformer

    The PQ1 is small and simple to use, with 16 pre-programmed industry-standard depth/duration response curves that can be programmed application specific. The PQ1 is a single-phase monitor that can also be used phase-to-phase or you can combine three PQ1’s for phase-to-neutral on three-phase power systems.

    Because the PQ1 costs less than one-tenth of traditional power quality monitors, it quickly pays for itself as it increases equipment up time leading to higher customer satisfaction ratings.

    Micro PMU

    Overview

    The microPMU is a synchrophasor that high speed records and streams real-time stamped data measurements of electricity, including voltage, current, and frequency, as phasors at different points on a utility electric grid transmission system. Use a synchrophasor for wide area measurement and control to understand complex and dynamic power grid applications in utility distribution grids and microgrids.

    Micro Synchrophasors

    Our microPMU works like a microscope with micro-second resolution and accuracy needed to understand the distribution of power grid applications. The microPMU data provides grid operators with a precise and high-resolution image and pmu measurements of the power grid in real-time.

    Our microPMU takes PMU measurements at 60 or 120 observations per second at 60 Hz mains and 50 or 100 obs/sec at 50 Hz mains. Each measurement is time-stamped according to a common time reference using GPS. The time-stamping of the measurements allows data from different locations and utilities to be time-aligned (synchronized) and combined together. This data provides a precise and complete overview of the entire gride interconnection.

    This time-sensitive information helps to alert the grid operators to grid stress early on, potentially avoiding power outages and maintaining power quality.

    The microPMU can be connected to voltages up to 600VAC L-L 48VAC, which makes it ideal for interfacing with low voltage output signals or medium voltage sensor output. It’s easy for system operators to install. It can be installed in electrical panels, on distribution poles, in pad mount transformers, and more.

    The microPMU is also ideal for smart grid projects that need precise synchrophasor measurements to investigate grid stability problems and to answer questions on blockages.

    I. Data Centers - AC (And 380v DC)

    Overview:

    Use a PQube 3 to track the quality of incoming utility power, and your own conditioned power, to demonstrate the value of UPSs and PDUs. If you have a new 380V DC data center, use your PQube 3’s unique ability to monitor both AC and 380V DC disturbances, and to track both AC and DC power flow. Your PQube 3 will also record everything from temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and even earthquakes – it’s like an aircraft’s “black box” for data center reliability, and it’s as easy to use as a digital camera.

    II. Telecom And Base Stations

    Overview:

    Your standard, inexpensive PQube 3 tracks disturbances on both AC and 48VDC power — no options required — and reports precision power flow on both systems. Use your PQube 3’s barometric pressure sensors to detect clogged air filters. At shared power locations, you can even use your PQube 3’s many AC current channels as precision revenue-grade meters. Remote locations with generator backup can use PQube 3 analog channels to measure fuel level and battery charge.

    III. Aircraft Power And Airports

    Overview:

    Standard low-cost PQube 3 analyzers all monitor 400 Hz power — no options required — for both single-phase and three-phase aircraft systems. And PQube 3s can simultaneously record disturbances on DC battery voltages and currents, at more than 30,000 samples per second on every cross-triggered channel. All of the recordings are stored on industrial flash memory in open-source files, and can be extracted with a standard USB thumb drive. And at airports, government agencies often use PQube 3 analyzers to monitor critical power infrastructure, like backup generators, to document that they have been operated under load, and on the proper test schedule.

    IV.Government And University Research

    Overview:

    Government laboratories and universities around the world use the PQube 3 as their AC power research instrument of choice. Why? The measurements from PQube 3s are fully certified — each PQube 3 comes with an individual NIST-Trace Certificate, and is U.L.-listed — and are entirely in open-source file formats, ideal for researchers. And the precision and accuracy of the low-cost PQube 3 are only exceeded by laboratory reference instruments.

    V. Railroads And Transport

    Overview:

    Your low-cost PQube 3 can serve like an aircraft’s “black box” for your railroad power — it captures every disturbance. Standard PQube 3s can monitor 16.7 Hz systems, as well as 50 Hz and 60 Hz — no options required. And you can even use it for clever functions like monitoring the power signature of rail switch motors, which can help predict mechanical failures and motor failures before they happen.

    Everything your PQube 3 records is available in open-source files, and your PQube 3 will email the files directly to your desk – no software required. It’s the smallest, simplest, most certified power instrument available.

    VI. Electric Vehicle Charging

    Overview:

    EV chargers can be damaged or disrupted by power disturbances all over the world. Your PQube 3 is the ideal “aircraft black box” for recording every type of power disturbance, logging the waveforms, and emailing them to you. Or you can extract them with a standard USB thumb drive – in either case, no software is required. You can even use your low-cost PQube 3 to record DC voltages and currents – 30,000 samples per second is standard — providing independent confirmation of charger performance, and cross-triggered DC disturbances. It records temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, earthquakes, and mechanical jolts, too.

    VII. Military Bases And Ships

    Overview:

    A low-cost PQube 3 is the ideal AC power monitor for military bases. It detects and records every type of power disturbance at 50 Hz, 60 Hz, and 400 Hz; monitors how well the grid switches to backup generators, and how well it switches back; and it keeps recording even if it gets disconnected from the base’s ethernet backbone. It’s like an aircraft “black box” for AC power. On board Navy ships, it monitors both shipboard power and shore power, with better-than-revenue-grade accuracy and full NIST-certification. On modern advanced DC-powered ships, the PQube 3 is fully capable of recording and reporting disturbances on multiple high-voltage DC buses. The PQube 3 is perfect for naval research.
