Power Measurement: Model 8335 Three-phase Power Quality Analyzers From AEMC Instruments

Power Measurement test and measurement equipment AEMC Instruments analyzers

Power measurement: AEMC Instruments’ PowerPad® Model 8335 is a three-phase power quality analyzer that is easy-to-use, compact and shock-resistant. It is intended for technicians and engineers to measure and carry out diagnostic work and power quality work on one, two or three phase low voltage networks.

The PowerPad® 2GB of memory is conveniently partitioned to let you store four different types of data, synchronized or independent of each other. You can store up to 50 screen snapshots, up to 300 captured transients that contain four cycles for each active input, and 10,000 alarm events from up to 40 different parameters. You can also record trend data for days, weeks or even months.

Extend your warranty to 3 years by registering online or by returning your warranty card within 30 days from the date of purchase.

Features:
•    Voltage Ratios: 1V to 500kV / Separate or grouped configuration of channels
