Power measurement: Power from the phase has now been added to the Dranetz Technologies IP65 rated Dranetz HDPQ SP power monitoring instruments. The Dranetz HDPQ Visa SP, Guide SP, Xplorer SP, and Xplorer 400 SP instruments are intended for use in harsh, outdoor and remote environments, or for applications where a LCD display is undesirable.

“Having the ability to power the Dranetz HDPQ SP instruments from the circuit being measured is a great convenience to users, and it also enhances their safety, said Ross Ignall, Dranetz Director of Product Management. “With the new, built in, 600V AC/DC power supply, users no longer have to locate a separate 120/230V power source for the instrument; they now have the choice to either power the instrument from the circuit being measured or from a separate power source.”

Dranetz HDPQ users can now choose between a traditional portable instrument with a local 7” color touch LCD display or a SP version that can be powered from the phase, and is housed in an IP65 enclosure without a local LCD display. The HDPQ portable (with 7” display) and SP (IP65 enclosure without display) versions of each model have exactly the same measurement and strong remote communications capabilities.

The Dranetz HDPQ Family of Power Quality, Demand & Energy instruments not only offer the industry’s best measurement capabilities, but also have the most powerful communications capabilities in the industry making it ideal for commissioning, engineering, and troubleshooting applications. The powerful communications available in the Dranetz HDPQ line enhances the end user’s productivity and safety by allowing users to control the instrument and download data remotely. Users no longer have to subject themselves to hazardous environments and can now manage power surveys remotely from the safety and comfort of an office or other more convenient location.
