The AEMC PEL 102 and PEL 103 are low cost, simple to use, one, two (split phase) and three phase (Y, Δ) power/energy data loggers. These products are ideal for electricians, engineers and contractors doing work in the area of building and system monitoring and upgrades, as well as residential and overall energy audits. All vital energy data is easily measured, recorded, and analyzed. Reports can be generated with confidence with minimal configuration time and effort (Standard and Customizable Reports supplied).
The design of the PEL 102 / PEL 103 enables it to be installed inside a load center panel (including the current sensors) and still allow the door to close on most panels. The PEL units offer all the essential functions for logging power/energy data from most electrical power networks in use today across the world (17 network set-ups provided). The PEL 102 / PEL 103 energy loggers measure and record three voltage inputs and current inputs, Watts, VARS, VA and Energy (kWh and kVA). Power Factor (PF), Displacement Power Factor (DPF), Crest Factor, Frequency and THD are calculated and recorded as well. Individual harmonic % information from 1 to the 50th harmonic are recorded at the operator's choice. All variables are recorded and stored at a one second interval and on user selectable demand intervals from 1 to 60 minutes.
Energy costs can be calculated and displayed quickly and easily by simply inputting the unit cost for a kilowatt hour into the software. Data is stored on a removable SD card. Data can be retrieved using a USB, Bluetooth and/or Ethernet (local or internet) connection by transporting the SD card back to a PC. The comprehensive DataView® software (included) provides the ability to view data from several hundred PEL 100 series instruments on a local network or over the internet allowing the user to evaluate energy usage in a department or facility basis, a remote site, or even in a city, anywhere in the world. DataView® allows measurements to be viewed in real-time on a PC and stored data to be downloaded for analysis and report generation.
Please consider these optional accessories.
This product can be used in the following applications:
The Background: Our customer is a concrete crushing plant in the midst of upgrading the equipment in their facility as older equipment wears out. Part of the upgrade includes installing new energy efficient variable frequency drives on their motors.
The Problem: Although the process of upgrading has already started, the customer wants to be able to quantify the ROI on installing the VMDs. System changes can also alter electrical demand.
The Solution: The AEMC PEL 103 is the perfect solution. Multiple units can be installed on panels and sub-panels to collect data pre- and post-upgrade. The PEL units can be networked for a complete oversight into verifying the overall electrical load. The logged data can also be assigned energy cost $/kWH and actual costs can be calculated with the software. This helps justify payoff period for upgraded more energy efficient components.
