A Versatile Meter Base "Plug-In" Recorder.
The LM-1312 is a Form 2S residential meter adapter recorder designed to simply plug into a meter base to simultaneously record more than 30 energy parameters along with harmonics, disturbance events, waveform capture, and flicker. The unit has captive internal CT’s making installation and current measurement easy and can be programmed to send real time notification when a measured condition exceeds a user-programmed threshold. Data is kept in the meter in non-volatile flash memory so that no data is ever lost and there is no battery maintenance required to preserve recorded data.
The unit records more than 30 energy parameters including Voltage, Current, kW, kVAR, kVA, True and Displacement Power Factors, for each leg, total, and both the single-cycle minimum and single-cycle maximum values for each interval, as well as line Frequency. Time stamps are Internet synchronized.
More and more residences have become vulnerable to power quality problems because of home offices and so many appliances using sensitive electronics. The LM-1312 records voltage, current, swell and sag events, total harmonic distortion (THD%) for both voltage and current and even measures and records individual harmonics. Easy to use software generates charts and reports in Excel® eliminating software compatibility problems. At a glance, sags or loose neutrals can be identified. And you still have the Excel® data to manipulate to do other calculations if necessary.
