Chauvin Arnoux PEL103 Power & Energy Logger

The Chauvin Arnoux PEL 103 Kit provides a complete solution to measuring and identifying expensive energy loss within virtually any business. It can be used handsfree, remotely and with no interruption to the mains power. It has been designed to fit inside all types of cabinets thanks to its magnetised back cover. The PEL103 also comes supplied with a self-powering mains adaptor meaning you do not need to worry about it running out of power whilst left unattended.

Whether you have a single phase, three phase, split phase installation or other complex figuration, it doesn't matter, the PEL103 can be used to provide all the power and energy measurements simultaneously. All connections and leads are colour coded for easy identification, set up and installation.

The backlit 4 line LCD display shows readings in real-time, whilst data is recorded on the internal 2GB SD card. Easily transfer the data recorded to your PC via the free PEL data transfer software and SD card to USB adaptor included. This software also allows you to program the PEL103 ready for its next application so you are set up and ready to go when you arrive on site. Dataview software is also included free with this kit, allowing you to create professional reports and in depth analysis.

Take a look at the potential savings you could make by identifying energy loss...
20% - Average savings from energy efficiency measures
46% - Average SME out of hours energy usage
30% - Occupancy sensor lighting energy cost reduction
40% - Automatic daylight adjustment energy cost reduction
80% - Worst case LED replacement vs. incandescent energy saving
50% - Discovery and correction of Power Factor

Many businesses choose to ignore energy waste or simply just don't know about it or what to do. Take control of your energy consumption, manage your energy spending and monitor your network all with one device.

Monitoring and mapping consumption on a site
The PEL103 logger can track even the slightest consumption in a factory, workshop, building, agency, etc. It simultaneously allows real-time consumption monitoring alongside historical and comparative analysis of consumption.

Predictive maintenance
When installed for a long period in a cabinet, PEL103 logger constantly monitor the active, apparent and reactive power values on the electrical network involved. This means it will instantly detect whenever the subscribed power threshold is exceeded.

Measuring the savings
The recordings made with the PEL103 electrical measuring instrument are time/date stamped. This makes it very simple to measure the gains achieved by comparing the recordings before and after modifying the installation. The reference is provided by the recordings from the PEL103 loggers before the modifications were made. You can then carry out the necessary work for maintenance or improvement of the electrical network or equipment. A correctly-positioned PEL103 will quickly enable you to target the places where work is needed without delay. Finally, a monitoring phase will help you to determine whether the solutions implemented are sufficient and, above all, to accurately measure any savings achieved.
