The 3196 POWER QUALITY ANALYZER is a highly advanced measuring instrument that can monitor and record abnormal phenomena related to power supply quality and analyze the causes of problems that lead to incorrect operation of electrical equipment. By simply connecting the 3196 to the power line to be monitored, you can accurately record the exact timing and types of power supply abnormalities that has occurred, and display a list of the events recorded.
An especially noteworthy feature of the 3196 is its gap-less recording capability (the ability to measure and record events continuously without loss of measurement data), which is necessary for analyzing the quality levels of factors such high frequency voltage, RMS voltage, power, 3-phase systems, harmonics as well as the power supply's K factor and flicker. The ability to instantly display details about items such as monitored waveforms simply by selecting them from an event list makes analysis easier. Although other instruments are available in the market for analyzing power supply quality, none of them have been capable of measuring all types of events simultaneously on a single instrument; this is what makes the 3196 such a notable development in supporting analysis of power supply problems.
Measurements can be taken from single-phase 2-wire, single-phase 3-wire, 3-phase 3-wire, or 3-phase 4-wire lines. Additional input channels are provided for voltage and current (one each), and support is provided for separate system measurement, DC voltage, and neutral wire measurement.
Up to one month of continuous measurement data can be recorded in internal memory. Further, data can be saved to a PC card (an ATA flash card of up to 528 MB) as well as to internal memory. The 3196 also comes equipped with an HTTP server function, eliminating the need for special-purpose interface applications and allowing you to use any general web browser (such as Internet Explorer) for full remote monitoring and control.
The 3196 POWER QUALITY ANALYZER is a state-of-the-art measuring instrument that serves as a powerful aid to resolving various kinds of power supply problems. The trend toward power liberalization has been accompanied by an increase in problems with power quality, resulting in a steady need for power quality analyzers. Recently, the rapid growth in use of electronic devices such as computers has been accompanied by an increase in problems with electronic systems in places such as factories and businesses, making monitoring of power supply problems a topic of increasing concern. Also, with the restructuring of the energy business (deregulation of power, sale of electricity, dispersed power supplies, and cogeneration), more countries are paying attention to power supply quality, and the importance of power supply quality analyzers has grown. The 3196 is the answer to these needs by being able to simply and faithfully capture power supply abnormalities and analyze various kinds of problems.
