Typical Projects / Studies

Load Studies

Verify currents for ampacity before adding new loads. Determine the load profile of any equipment, branch, or facility for power management and load shedding. Appropriately size breakers, transformers, power factor correction, and power backup. Our ReportWriter Wizard™ provides a compelling summary document with a minimum of effort.

Applies to all PowerSight analyzers

Evaluate Harmonic Distortion of Power

Modern electronic equipment introduces harmonics into a power system, which can have unforeseen consequences. Safety risks related to overheating can arise but can easily be identified by an analyzer with harmonics analysis.

Applies to all PowerSight analyzers

Long, Extended Studies

Every PS5000 comes standard with expanded internal memory storage. What’s more, every PS5000 and PS4550 system includes an SD memory card that, when inserted in the analyzer, provides virtually unlimited data capacity. Verify currents for ampacity before adding new loads. Determine the load profile of any equipment, branch, or facility for power management and load shedding. Appropriately size breakers, transformers, power factor correction, and power backup.

Applies to PS4550 and PS5000

Evaluate Motor Health

In addition to normal monitoring, log the voltage and current imbalance over time. Directly connect to 4160V motors with our optional medium voltage probes. Evaluate power at the motor and in front of VFDs for the full picture. factor correction, and power backup. Medium Voltage Solutions

Applies to all PowerSight analyzers

Evaluate Quality of Power Within Facilities to Find Failure Causes

If equipment is failing prematurely or is mysteriously taking itself off-line, you want to evaluate the voltage of the branch line and the current draw of parallel circuits. In addition to fine logging, trigger on swells and sags of voltage and inrush of current. Capture several views of what is happening in order to evaluate the source and the solution of the problem.

Applies to PS4550 and PS5000

Verify ATS & Backup Power

Trigger on loss of power to record the response of your ATS and backup power systems. Just as importantly, judge the handover of power from battery to diesel and from diesel to utility upon recovery. Trigger on current spikes and voltage over/under voltages that can damage equipment.

Applies to PS4550 and PS5000

Cost & Efficiency Analysis

Automatically view projected cost, run time costs, peak demand period, power factor profiles and more to verify projected savings, check utility bills, shed loads, minimize power factor penalties. Perform before/after and A/B analyses for informed decision making. Our ReportWriter Wizard™ provides clear summaries and comparisons with a minimum of effort.

Applies to all PowerSight analyzers

Multi-Point & Commissioning Studies

Characterize an entire facility by monitoring many points simultaneously. PowerSight’s industry unique TestPlan Manager™ is the industry’s most efficient and error free method of performing multi-point studies. Because the entire test plan is embedded inside each analyzer, your efficiency goes up and collating data becomes a snap. Combine your analyzers with our rental analyzers to do jobs of over 100 simultaneous test points.

Applies to PS3550 and PS4550

Equipment Evaluation & Predictive Maintenance

Characterize individual motors or processes over time to observe changes in performance. The PowerSight TestPlan Manager™ provides an efficient and error free method of keeping track of performance over time.

Applies to all PowerSight analyzers

Evaluate Quality of Incoming Power

Verify that your utility is delivering power within an acceptable voltage range over time. Check if nearby facilities are affecting your power. Verify if long power lines or over-capacity situations are having an adverse effect on your operations. Trigger on voltage swells and sags. Trigger of high speed transients. See what is happening in several different presentation viewpoints. PowerSight is unique in its ability to connect directly to distribution power (with optional medium voltage probes) to see what is happening at the source.

Applies to PS4550 and PS5000

Rudimentary Power Quality Analysis

Roughly characterize power quality by viewing maximum and minimum voltages, current inrush, and voltage imbalance. Evaluate THD over time. A visual scan of the logs and the summary values of the study inform you, with minimum effort. Note: we highly recommend the PS5000 and PS4550 for comprehensive power quality analysis.

Applies to PS2500 and PS3550

High Frequency Studies

When the Frequency Analysis Option (FAO) is enabled, the PS4550 effectively becomes a spectrum analyzer, capable of measuring high-frequency power line noise up to 100,000Hz. Common applications include where high-frequency noise could affect sensitive electronics, interfere with specialized manufacturing processes, cause high frequency currents, or disrupt communication signals.

Applies to PS4550
