PCE-830 power anlayser
3 phases, measures power and analyses harmonics, with memory, interface and sofware

The PCE-830 power and harmonics analyser is used for measuring one to three phases of electrical quantities for alternating current (AC). This power and harmonics analyser also measures such parameters as voltage, current, frequency, harmonics and power as well as indicting, according to standard EN50160, harmonic values, interharmonics and asymmetrics. Interferences, such as interruptions, leaks, overloads or transience (from 16µs), are detected with their corresponding values. The backlit LCD, with high resolution, can show up to 35 parameters simultaneously. It can have up to 3 clips attached at the same time. In the data logger mode, it can save up to 17,470 readings (3 phases / 4 conductors) and in a simpler set-up (1 fase / 2 conductores) it can save up to 52,400 readings, split into 85 groups. All this makes the PCE-830 power analyser the ideal instrument for taking measurements over long periods of time. Measurement values obtained can be sent to a computer and be processed with the analysis siftware which comes included. The device comes with everything needed to measure and analyse from the moment the device arrives. Although the power analyser comes calibrated from the manufacturer, an optional laboratory calibration and certificate that meets ISO standards can be ordered seperately with the device or when a recalibration is required.

Outline of the PCE-830

Connecting the amp clamps to the PCE-830:

1. Turn on the device.
2. Push the "1f3f" key until "3P3W" appears on
    the display for 3 phases / 3 conductors.
3. Connect the 3 test cables from the voltage with

Safety information for the use of a power analyser:
- Do not use the power analyser, the clamps or the cables when there is evidence that they have
  been damaged.PCE-830 power anlayser: direct light
- Take care when taking measurements of any type of conductors.
- To avoid damaging the power analyser, only take measurements within the specified
  ranges. Always be attentive to any warnings given be the device.
- Do not use the device in extreme temperatures, in direct sunlight, in extreme humedity or
  exposed to water.
- Avoid subjecting the device to extreme shocks and always handle it with care.
- Before turning on the device, allow it to acclimatise to the environment it will be used in. This is
  particularly important when the device is taken from cold environments to hot ones, and vice versa.
- This device should only be repaired by qualified technicians of the PCE-Group.
- Don't place the device with its display face down on a work surface to avoid damaging the keypad.
- Use the power analyser inside buildings.  If it must be used outside, do this only in dry conditions.
- Don't expose the device to direct sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity or condensation when it
  is in use.
- This device is not protected against exposure to dust or exposure to water.
- Don't expose this device in corrosives areas or to explosive gases.
- Never use the power analyser with wet hands.
- Always wear a safety suit when handling the power analyser.
- Before connecting the test cables or clamps, always disconnect the device first.
- To avoid damage or a short circuit, leave the object being measured without a current before
  connecting the power analyser or the clamps.
- The inputs are not seperated from each other.
- Remove all lines being measured that are no being used by the installation.
- First connect the test cable the the power analyser and then to the object being measured.
- Put down the test cables with care when not being used.
