Electrocorder EC-7VAR

Electrocorder, now with Power Factor recording!!!

The all new EC-7VAR from Electrocorder is used by Electrical Contractors, Electrical Engineers and Power Distribution companies to monitor power (kW) and energy Electrocorder EC-7VAR Energy Data Logger(kWh) usage.

The EC-7VAR is used in various application including Voltage Optimisation, Energy Consumption, Peak Load Recording, Load Balance Recording and Energy Auditing.

One main feature of the Electrocorder is it’s fast and continuous sampling rate, this is unlike other units on the market that take spot readings. The EC7VAR samples 800 times per second and then records the data at a user selectable rate between 2 seconds and 60 minutes. A typical recording time of 10 minutes allows the EC-7VAR to record data for some 50 days.

The bundled Electrosoft software is a Windows based application that is truly stunning and has a great range of charting and reporting features, yet still easy to produce stylish reports for your customers is seconds. Electrocorder units are supplied with Electrosoft software and updates are freely available from the Electrocorder website.Electrocorder ElectroSoft Chart

All EC-7VAR units are fitted with Rogowski Coils that are flexible and can easy fit around cables of up to 140mm diameter. Rogowski Coils unclip at the black joint, allowing them to be placed around the cables without having to break the main circuit.

Power Factor (known as PF or Cos f) is recorded for the voltage channel L1 and the current channel A1, this is then used to calculate the real (Watts), reactive (VARs) and apparent (VA) power for all 3 phases within our Electorosoft software. PF measurement also allows users to determine if Power Factor Correction is needed for the site.

EC-7VAR-FK, ~4Amps to 400Amps
EC-7VAR-1K, ~10Amps to 1kAmps
EC-7VAR-2K, ~15Amps to 2kAmps

New 20-channel data logger launched

Graphtec GL820 data logger

Graphtec GL820 data logger

Leading regional data logger supplier, Lontek, has unveiled the all-new midi LOGGER GL820, which features an immense 20 analogue input channels as standard. What’s more, this configuration can be expanded up to a staggering 200 channels.

Perfect for evaluation and site testing, the general purpose GL820 data logger from Graphtec, allows users to simultaneously capture a broad range of real-time data quickly and easily. The 20 multi-function input channels are individually isolated to eliminate the possibility of signal corruption and they can capture data from process signals, voltage, temperature and humidity sensors with additional inputs for pulse and logic.

Should a greater number of channels be required on the device itself, users can simply add on 20 channel extension terminal kits to expand the number of channels up to 200. If more channels are needed, users can activate up to 500 channels by specifying PC measurement.

A true performer, the GL820 has the power to record fast changes in signals. It provides faster sampling rates for voltage measurements and can achieve an amazing 10ms sampling interval when the number of channels in use is limited.

The GL820 also features a new scaling function in the temperature measurement that can be adjusted by the operator to measure relative temperature.

Created with flexibility in mind, the midi LOGGER GL820’s huge 2GB flash memory enables secure long-term data measurement without the need for an external storage device. The GL820 can also save measured data directly to a USB memory stick and it can be replaced during measurement without fear of data loss.

For added convenience, the GL820 can be controlled remotely by a PC via a USB cable or a Web browser via Ethernet. This allows users to monitor and transfer data directly to a PC in real-time. The captured data can be easily converted for use in EXCEL thanks to the GL820’s standard software which is Windows 7 compatible.

The 14.5cm wide TFT colour LCD display ensures the GL820 is easy to read. Data is available in a smooth waveform or digital text form.

Compact and portable, the GL820 weighs in at just 900g. It is one of the lightest data loggers in its category on the market today. Designed with the user in mind, it is ergonomic and simple to navigate. Single touch buttons eliminate the need for complicated menu trees.

The GL820 comes complete with two re-chargeable batteries that provide up to 7 hours of power, an AC power adapter, USB cable, Windows graphical software and a plastic carry case with foam insert.

Graphtec release new GL900 data logger

Graphtec Corporation, a leading manufacturer of precision recording and measuring instruments, has added

Graphtec GL900 data logger

Graphtec GL900 data logger

the midi LOGGER GL900 —A5-size 8-channel data logger—to its family of data acquisition products. The midi LOGGER GL series are popular as the handy type logger, now; the GL900 is designed as vertical operation for customer’s usage. Also the size is drastically reduced as an isolated high speed measurement equipment.

The midi LOGGER GL900 has an isolated 8 channel multi-function input for multi channel measurement needs. The maximum input voltage is 500 V DC, and it can be used for measuring temperature (thermocouple) and humidity in the atmosphere. Separate from the analogue channels are a further four channels that use logic or pulse input. A BNC input connector for voltage measurement and an M3 screw in input terminal to the thermocouple are provided with the unit.

High Speed Data Collection

With 8 high-speed channels sampling data at a speed of 100 kHz using a 16 bit S/D converter, all channels are measured simultaneously. Using such high speed sampling, instantaneous tests such as the vibration, drop down and mechanical shock tests are easily measured. Downloaded data can be stored straight to a USB memory stick if using 1 kHz sampling. The new midi LOGGERS are also suitable for the environmental, tensile/compression and durability tests.

The best thing about the midi LOGGERS is its high speed that captures a lot of data that is stored easily within the memory. It has a large 5.7 inch color TFT LCD display screen for better functionality and to display and measure waveforms. The waveform function is easily expandable or reduced using the oscilloscope like operation. The unit has an easy to use curser operation that is popular in all the midi LOGGER GL models.

While the GL900 can be used for time-axis waveform display it can also be used as a multi-channel X-Y recorder. In this format a moving dot is seen on the screen even before the measurement begins.

Storage Capacity

The GL900 has an inbuilt 256MB flash memory and Ram that can store up to 1 million points of data. It also provides external storage the capacity to connect a USB stick.

The internal RAM stores the instantaneous data from the measurement of things like the drop down or mechanical shock test. For long-term storage the 256 MB flash memory or a USB stick is used.

The midi LOGGERS have USB and Ethernet interfaces provided as standard in the GL900 model. All measured data can be transferred to your computer during real-time using the software that comes with your midi LOGGER. Data stored on a USB stick can also be transferred to your computer when you are off line. What makes the midi LOGGER even more convenient is its network function that transfers data remotely through a Web browser without using any specialist software at all.
