The voltage performance monitor identifies voltage events and harmonics that can cause equipment damage and failures. By plugging into a circuit at the point of equipment connection, the VPM indicates when problematic voltage events occur and logs the time, duration and severity of the event without requiring a computer. Users can determine if equipment problems are related to voltage and if a circuit is safe for new or existing equipment. Time and severity of events are displayed on the unit’s OLCD screen, and up to 512 events can be stored in its internal memory for review by category or in chronological order. The VPM also lets technicians verify the need for a UPS installation or a surge-protective device, as well as confirm the protection provided by such equipment.
