Foxborough, MA — AEMC’s PEL 100 series data loggers are low cost, simple to use, one, two (split phase) and three-phase (Y, ∆) power and energy data loggers. Available in two models: Model PEL 102 (no display) or Model PEL 103 (with a backlit digital display).

The data loggers are for electricians, engineers and contractors doing work in the area of building and system monitoring and upgrades, as well as residential and overall energy audits. All vital energy data is easily measured, recorded and analyzed. Reports can be generated with confidence and with minimal configuration time and effort.

The data loggers’ design enables them to be installed inside a load center panel (including the current sensors) and still allow the door to close on most panels. The PEL 100 series power and energy loggers measure and record voltage, current, Watts, VARS, VA and Energy (kWh and kVA). Power Factor, Displacement Power Factor, Crest Factor, Frequency and THD are recorded as well. Individual harmonic % information from 1 to the 50th harmonic are recorded at the operator’s choice. All variables are stored once per second as well as user selectable demand intervals from 1 to 60 minutes. Energy costs can be calculated and displayed quickly and easily by simply inputting the unit cost for a kilowatt hour into the software. Data is stored on a removable SD card and can be retrieved using a USB, Bluetooth and/or Ethernet (local or internet) connection or by transporting the SD card back to a PC. The comprehensive DataView® software (included) provides the ability to view data from several hundred PEL 100 series instruments on a local network or over the internet, allowing the user to evaluate energy usage in a department or facility basis or anywhere in the world. Measurements to be viewed in real-time on a PC and stored data to be downloaded for analysis and report generation.

APPLICATIONS:
• Measure efficiency, find areas for potential savings
• Assign energy costs to departments or operations
within a department
• Track peak demand periods and find opportunities
for surcharge reductions
• Determine present capacity and circumvent
unnecessary electrical expansion costs
• Verify the reliability and operation of electrical
machinery
• Improve response time to solve power related
problems
• Track energy availability and reliability of supply
• Baseline studies for system upgrades in high-rise
and office buildings
