Power quality and energy analyzer
The Fluke 437 Series II 400 Hz Power Quality and Energy Analyzer is designed specifically for technicians in avionics and defense, like submarine, aircraft, military ship, and other transport applications, where 400 Hz measurements are mission critical.
Fluke's 437 Series II 400 Hz Power Quality and Energy Analyzer is designed specifically for technicians in avionics and defense. It's ideal for submarine, aircraft, military ship and other transport applications where 400 Hz measurements are mission critical.
The Fluke 437 is the latest model in the Fluke 430 Series II Three Phase Power Analyzers, which use the Unified Power Management algorithm, to measure and quantify energy losses due to harmonics and unbalance issues, allowing users to pinpoint the origin of energy waste within a system.
The 435 and 437 models include PowerWave, a fast capture system that displays waveforms and half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail to measure interactions during switching operations to prevent motor/drive/load mismatches.
Both are fully compliant with IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A. Each can monitor systems with up to ten power quality parameters on one screen, can record up to 150 parameters on four phases simultaneously, in accordance with the EN50160 standard, and are safety rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
