Florham Park, N.J., -- Utility testing: Emerson Network Power announces ASCO® 5400 Series Power Quality Meters that capture every event that occurs in on-site power systems, no matter how fast or small.

"It's like having power quality insurance," said David Iskandar, director of power quality sales at Emerson Network Power's ASCO Power business. "Whenever an event occurs, the revenue-grade 5400 Series Power Quality Meters immediately identify issues in real time so they can be resolved."

Continuous, high-speed wave form recording and transient harmonic displays are what enable the ASCO Power Quality Meters to capture and present complete data on sags, swells and other events. The meters also track and store data on Time-of-Day energy consumption, flicker, crest and K-factor. They aggregate and synchronize events from multiple meters to the millisecond with ITIC1 compliance curves. Continuous wave form recording eliminates setting thresholds, triggers and events.

PowerQuest Analytics, which are part of ASCO PowerQuest 5790 and 5900 Critical Power Management Systems, enable facility managers to use the data to accurately diagnose events and identify underlying issues for resolution.

Tools in the software that capture events and analyze power quality also help facility managers diagnose how efficiently their facilities are operating. They then have the insight on how to reduce energy and infrastructure costs, and increase overall reliability.

ASCO Power Quality Meters generate automated reports for prescheduled periods and export them in COMTRADE and PQDIF (event reports), PDF, EXCEL, HTML and TXT (all other reports). They provide compliance testing to parameters in accordance with EN50160 and IEC 61000-4-15 /IEC 61000-4-30. During power outages, a 25-second power ride-through provides uninterrupted data recording.

ASCO Power Quality Meters can capture data from gen-sets, utility mains, power transfer switches, UPSs, paralleling gear, TVSS, PDUs and critical power distribution boards.
