Saratoga, Calif.— Multipoint power recorder is a nine channel monitoring instrument designed for permenant installation in switchgear, substations, utility, industrial, and commercial environments. This device measures ac voltage on four channels and ac currents on five channels. A wide range dc monitoring channel is available, as well as four channels for digital inputs. Built-in current transfomers provide convenient monitoring for current via standard 5-amp CT circuits. Ethernet connection and TCP/IP support are standard; multiple power recorders can communicate over networks, LANs/WANs, intranets, and the Internet. The recorder comes in a low-speed and a high-speed version. Both can measure power quality including sags, swells, transients, and flicker. They also track haromonics to the 63rd harmonic. Also, they measure power consumption quantities such as Watts, VA, VAR, and power factor. Reliable Power Meters
