Summit Technology PS4500
PowerSight Power Quality Analyzer
See: PS4550

  • Catches power quality events such as fast transients (impulses) to 8us, plus voltage sags (dips), and swells.
  • Tracks total harmonic distortion to the 63rd harmonic
  • Records energy use (kWh), and logs all power parameters: watts, va var, pf, etc.
  • Data log RMS voltage and current over time (days/weeks/months) with cycle-by-cycle resolution
  • Displays real time values in meter window – just like a multimeter
  • Displays oscilloscope waveforms, harmonic spectra, phasors via a PC
  • Measures DC voltage and current
  • Contoured, cushion grip for comfort
  • Ruggedized construction for field use
  • Bluetooth wireless for remote communications to PC
  • Secure Digital removable memory card slot (to 2 GB)
  • CAT IV 600V Safety rating
  • *Probes are not included, unit requires optional probes

The Summit Technology PS4500 Power Quality Analyzer is the best choice if you are looking for a versatile, easy-to-use power monitor suitable for all types of power studies. It is a data logger, energy and demand meter, power quality monitor, harmonics analyzer and "live-view" scope and multimeter - all in one!

Use it on AC single phase or three phase circuits and loads, or on DC and 400 Hz systems. Data is saved to internal memory that can be downloaded to a PC via Bluetooth. Alternatively, the PS4500 includes a removable SD memory card slot (to 2GB capacity) that allows you to backup power survey data and transfer the data to a PC via an SD card.
Best for Safety and NFPA 70E requirements. With a CAT-IV Safety rating (600V/8000V) you can confidently use the PS4500 on systems up to 600 VRMS. Bluetooth wireless communications allows remote control via a PC or netbook, up to 25 feet away. Thus you can get relief from wearing cumbersome hoods, suits, and gloves. After installing the meter and probes you can remove protective gear in a safe area and control the PowerSight, perform setup, view waveforms and meters, download data, all in comfort and safety remotely using wireless communications.
