Electrocorder CT-1A AC Current Logger
Single channel current, 0.1A to 100A, model dependent
Constant Sampling technique; misses very little data
Complete with Electrosoft energy analysis software
Sealed to IP65/NEMA 12/4
The Electrocorder range is designed to allow users to cost effectively monitor
their voltage supply, the Electrocorder enables users to log current or
energy usage over a prolonged period. The CT-1A is widely used for energy
audits in homes, offices and businesses and earth fault logging in industry.
Setting up the Electrocorder is easy, suitable for non-technical users. Using
the supplied Windows software, Electrosoft; input the location details for
the logging and choose the logging period. Electrosoft will print the necessary
dispatch / return documentation including user instructions. All data
is included in a database of dispatches and returns, allowing you to track
location of multiple loggers.
Why is the Electrocorder better than other similarly priced competitors? The
Electrocorder range use a constant sampling technique, unlike the single
reading of competitors. When the loggers start to record, they sample every
channel 16 times per cycle, a cycle is 16ms at 60Hz and 20ms t 50Hz. At
the end of each averaging period, 3 quantities are saved for each channel,
the True RMS average, the Max, which is the highest cycle value during the
period and the Min, lowest cycle value. This means that it will record all the
peaks and troughs which are one cycle or longer.
Electrocorder will start recording when the green start button is pressed
and stop recording when the memory is full. Recording is shown by a flashing
green light and completion by a red light.
The current levels are stored with dates and times. With the back-up battery,
the Electrocorder can continue to record for 1 week on battery power alone
and indefinitely with the 12V PSU.
The stored data is uploaded to a PC via the supplied RS232 cable. Using
Electrosoft, the recorded current levels, dates & times can be viewed in both
tabular and graphical form, exported to a spreadsheet or saved to file.
Graphs can be printed showing the recorded levels and the allowable tolerance
bands. Electrosoft also provides an internal database which effectively
manages the distribution of multiple units.
On the logger, recording is signified by a flashing green light. A red light
advises users that the unit has completed recording.
This model is specifically designed to monitor one current channel. Allowing
you to monitor the loading and energy consumption of the installation. There
are many models of Electrocorder, to suit many logging situations and user’s
The product is supplied with one current transducer. Several models are
available, the three standard CT-1A and have a range of 0.1 to 10A, 0.5 to
50A and 1A to 100A. Other ranges may be factory set.
