Keep an eye on energy
Measuring power consumption in a wide variety of locations is now easier and quicker thanks to the launch of k-Wattch, a portable hand-held energy monitor developed as part of the Sinergy range by Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management.
k-Wattch is a robust battery-operated meter that can measure both single and three phase devices, giving instant readings or recording and storing data for up to one week for download on to a USB memory stick. Its non-invasive 32mm CTs simply clip round cables and can monitor power factor, power, voltage or current, up to 1,000A.
“k-Wattch has a wide appeal thanks to its portability and flexibility,” said Jeremy Dodge, Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management Business Manager. “It can, for example, be used to measure power consumption of specific machines in a factory to identify inefficiencies, enable trials on manufacturing controls or form part of an energy reduction programme monitoring power use before and after energy saving measures have been taken. It is particularly pertinent for users who have no permanent solution for energy monitoring in place and who require a flexible, portable system that can go virtually anywhere and give instant readings.”
