Power Quality Meters Perform High-Speed Transient Capture

By Mat Dirjish

Schneider Electric introduces the PowerLogic ION9000T as the latest member of it power-quality meter family. Helping to avoid outages, equipment damage, failures, and interruption of operations, the ION9000T adds high-speed transient capture capabilities. Originating inside a facility or emanating from a utility grid, high-speed transient voltages can damage an electrical system and disappear without a trace. Drew Reid, Offer Manager for Power Solutions at Schneider Electric states, “The ION9000T samples at 10 MHz on 4-phase voltages, so it can capture and record these sub-cycle transients and help facility managers quickly get to the root cause of these events.”

The PowerLogic ION9000T meter high-speed transient capture capabilities include:

  • Impulsive and oscillatory transient detection and capture with 10 MHz sampling (>100 ns duration, 10 kV) on four phase voltages with the ability to provide a simplified event view based on analytics of the event.
  • Reliable performance with third-party certified Class 0.1S accuracy.
  • Designed to align with comprehensive grid cybersecurity policies, helping to eliminate vulnerabilities to critical power systems.
  • Onboard power quality analysis providing useful information, not just data, via an onboard PQ tool, according to EN50160 and IEEE519standards.
  • Extended waveform capture and patented disturbance direction detection (DDD).
  • Smart power event analysis automatically correlates related trends, events, and waveforms based on time and type of incident.
  • Patented ION programmability allows users to adapt as their power networks become more dynamic, tailoring programming to accommodate complex electrical distribution monitoring or custom substation automation.
