• The MPQ1000 is versatile, can be used for a variety of applications
• Technical Specifications
• Record transients down to 1 microsecond
• Perform waveform analysis to the 128th harmonic
• Flexible current clamps with four selectable ranges
• Efficient and accurate with unique auto detection of CT’s
• Safety maintained and fast setup with intelligent connection configuration validation
• Rapid condition diagnosis with powerful on instrument software tools
• Flexible data shortage and transfer via wife, Ethernet, USB and SD card

This highly intuitive unit delivers unmatched capability in a smart ergonomic platform. In both the scope and DVM modes, the versatile MPQ1000 can record power, energy, RMS, sags, swells, transients down to 1 microsecond, harmonics, inter-harmonics, harmonic direction, THD, TDD, flicker, unbalance, rapid voltage change (RVC), mains signaling, phase angle deviation, as well as performs waveform analysis to the 128th harmonic in real time.

Data gathered during testing can be recorded with the MPQ1000 record verification by simply pushing a button. This feature automatically detects the current clamps, recognizes its range, identifies the nominal voltage and sets the triggers, as well as verifies that the unit is connected properly to what it is testing.

The MPQ1000 features on board data analysis. An SD card is used to expand memory and all data recorded can be viewed on the unit’s color VGA display, or can be transferred to Megger’s power quality analysis software via USB cable, USB stick, Ethernet or directly from the SD card.

The free PC software that comes with the analyzer provides unparalleled capabilities. It automatically creates custom configurations based on the customer problem and performs custom automatic data analysis. It also allows the user to create their own analysis templates that can be loaded into the analyzer.

The MPQ1000 unit also features flexible current clamps that have four selectable ranges from 0 to 6000A.
