Solar Irradiance, 0-1500W/m-2
PV system output Vdc to 300V, Idc to 100A
Constant sampling technique; misses very little data
Complete with Electrosoft analysis software
The Electrocorder range is designed to allow users to monitor single, two or
Setting up the Electrocorder PV-3 is easy, suitable for semi-technical
staff. Using the supplied (free) Windows software, Electrosoft; the locationís
details are input to the unitís memory and stored. Electrosoft will then print
documentation allowing users to record and/or pass on delivery instructions
to colleagues. All data is also stored in a database of dispatches and returns,
which tracks the whereabouts of all units.
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 at
50Hz. At the end of each averaging period, 3 quantities are saved for each
channel, the TRMS 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.
When recording the Electrocorder will store the average voltage (and current
if applied) over the period chosen (1 sec to 60 min), it will also record the
highest (max) & lowest (min) cycle values during that period.
The voltage levels are stored with dates and times. With the back-up battery,
the Electrocorder can continue to record for 4 weeks. An external 12Vdc
PSU input is available, to allow for prolonged logging without batteries.
The stored data is uploaded to a PC via the supplied USB cable. Using
Electrosoft, the recorded voltage 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. These results may then be discussed with the customer. 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 steady red
light advises users that the unit has completed recording.
This model is specifically designed to accurately monitor one or two DC
voltage channels, 1V to 60Vdc. Allowing you to monitor charger performance
and PV (photovoltaic) cell output, as well as many other applications like DC
motors. There are many models of Electrocorder, to suit many logging situations
and userís requirements.
The product KIT is supplied with two fused voltage input leads, DC current
probe, pyranometer, USB lead, 12Vdc PSU, software and carry case.
Monitor charging circuits, PV (photovoltaic) cell, DC motor,
and many other application.
Accurately record DC voltages up to 60Vdc.
Two voltage input channels and one current channel .
