PS3000 – Power Analyzer

THE CLASSIC POWERSIGHT PS3000 ENERGY ANALYZER is a versatile, easy-to-use power monitor suitable for energy and demand power studies. It is a data logger, energy and demand meter, harmonics analyzer and “live-view” scope and multimeter – all in one!
Get complete power/energy/cost analysis in a compact, rugged package. The PS3000 measures voltage, current, KW, KVA, KVAR, true power factor, displacement power factor, KWh, Hz, elapsed and estimated cost, duty cycle. Long term logging for up to months at a time. Manual waveform capture ability. Real time meter display of present values.

It can:

• Record energy use (kWh), and peak demand
• Log power parameters: volts, amps, watts, va, var, pf, etc. over time (days/weeks/months)
• Track total harmonic distortion to the 63rd harmonic
• Display real time values in meter window – just like a multimeter
• Display oscilloscope waveforms, harmonic spectra, phasors via a PC + Serial communications
• Measure DC voltage and current
• Monitor 50Hz, or 60Hz systems


It’s rugged construction make the PS3000 ideal for field work. Clearly labeled buttons display present values on a LCD window for quickly making spot measurements at panels and equipment.

Use it on AC single phase or three phase circuits and loads. Data is saved to internal memory that can be downloaded to a PC via RS 232 serial communications cable (supplied). PC software and Report Writer are included. See an example here: Report


Going green? Need to control energy costs and implement energy savings measures? The PS3000 is ideal for establishing base-line data, and verifying the savings after changes have been made.
