The AEMC model 8220 is a single-phase AC + DC power meter with an electroluminescent backlit digital display and a 600V CAT III safety rating. It is a measurement tool for electrical parameters and distribution network disturbances, enabling the user to obtain instant measurements of the main characteristics of a single-phase network (voltage, current, power, voltage and current harmonics, etc). It is also used to monitor machinery in operation (temperature, inrush current and duration of operation, resistance of windings and rotational speed).

Compact and shock resistant, the 8220 has an ergonomic design and straightforward interface that makes it user friendly and intuitive. Within seconds you will be gathering the measurements you want. The AEMC model 8220's accuracy is better than 1% (excluding current sensors). It has a great flexibility due to AEMC's range of current sensors, measuring from a few hundred milliamps to several thousand amps.

DataView software provides a convenient way to configure and control power quality from your computer. Through the use of clear and easy-to-use tabbed dialog boxes, all PowerPad functions can be configured and tests can be initiated. Results can be displayed in real time and stored in your PC. Reports may be printed along with the operator's comments and analysis.

The AEMC model 8220 is designed for technicians, control and maintenance engineers, as well as, electrical contractors and educators.
