Hardware - Handheld test, measurement, calibration: The Fluke 1730 is a streamlined energy logging tool that allows technicians to conduct load studies and energy logging right out of the box. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice award winner.The Fluke 1730 Three-Phase Energy Logger, an intuitive, easy-to-use tool with professional-level energy data gathering capabilities. The Fluke 1730 breaks new ground by enabling a broader category of multi-disciplinary maintenance professionals to confidently gather energy data, while the accompanying Fluke Energy Analyze software scales from the analysis and reporting needs of the facility manager to the advanced analytical requirements of electrical engineers.

Even well run facilities can experience energy waste, most commonly through equipment and system inefficiencies or by operating at expensive times of day on the utility rate schedule. Detecting those wastes requires logging energy consumption over time, using expensive power quality analyzers operated by engineers with advanced training. Unfortunately, those cost and skill barriers have made energy audits impractical for many facilities.

The Fluke 1730 Energy Logger changes that. A streamlined energy logging tool with a straightforward, intuitive design, the Fluke 1730 allows technicians to load studies and energy logging right out of the box. The results provide facility managers with the information necessary to identify and prioritize energy saving projects.

The compact energy logger conducts key measurements of voltage, current, power, and power factor to identify areas of energy waste. All measured values are logged automatically and can be reviewed during logging. Common setup errors are rectified, through re-engineered cables, digital check and auto-correct of all connections, and an on-screen wizard for interval setup. It has the highest safety rating in the industry (600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III), can be powered directly from the measured circuit eliminating the need to find a power outlet, and has two USB ports for fast data downloads to PCs or standard thumb drives.
