PS5000 - Graphical Power Quality Analyzer
The full color display eliminates the need for laptops to see waveforms and logs. Phasor diagrams provide quick verification of connections.
The visual presentation of potential errors in connections and settings, via SureStart, minimizes the risk that the data will be incorrect at the end of the study.
The graphical user interface allows easy changing of trigger thresholds.
The large screen and “soft keys” allow quickly viewing all measurements of interest quickly.

Power Quality AnalysisContinuously examine every cycle of every input and trigger to a resolution of 8 microseconds. Trigger on swell, sag (dip), inrush, and advanced triggering types such as absolute and relative high-speed transient events. Choose your triggering mode:
- Allow the trigger thresholds to be set automatically for you by the meter, based on the voltages it sees
- Set the trigger thresholds yourself for voltages and currents, setting swell, sag (dip), inrush, absolute transient levels, and relative transient levels.
Power LoggingMonitor just about any power system or load in the world:
- 3-phase delta/wye, 4-wire delta, open/grounded delta, 2CT/2PT – 3CT/2PT – 3CT/3PT metering circuits, split-phase, single phase, multiple single phase, and of course DC.
- Choose from among 600 unique measurement types to log each second. All the basic measurement types are included: Vpn, Vpp, Amp, Watt, VA, VAR, TPF, THD. Advanced and specialized types are also included: Wpos/Wneg, VARpos/VARneg, DPF, Unbalance, Individual harmonics.
- Separately log positive, negative, and net KVAR and KW for meeting reporting requirements, designing PF correction, and evaluating utility costs.
- Summaries of the average, maximum, and minimum of each value, as well as the present values can be viewed on the analyzer’s display at any time.
- Verify your connections are correct at any time with SureStart or view the waveforms and phasor diagram on the display.
- All measurements and the initial automatic capture of waveforms can be viewed and analyzed in our PSM-A Windows software (power analysis features).
Harmonic AnalysisLog the THD and the magnitude of individual harmonics of every input, each second. View harmonics at any time as a bar chart. Log THD and individual harmonics of every input. Export logged individual harmonic data to Excel.

Typical PS5000 Applications
Evaluate Quality of Incoming PowerVerify that your utility is delivering power within an acceptable voltage range over time. Check if nearby facilities are affecting your power. Verify if long power lines or over-capacity situations are having an adverse effect on your operations. Trigger on voltage swells and sags. Trigger of high speed transients. See what is happening in several different presentation viewpoints. PowerSight is unique in its ability to connect directly to distribution power (with optional medium voltage probes) to see what is happening at the source.
Evaluate Quality of Power Within Facilities to Find Failure CausesIf equipment is failing prematurely or is mysteriously taking itself off-line, you want to evaluate the voltage of the branch line and the current draw of parallel circuits. In addition to fine logging, trigger on swells and sags of voltage and inrush of current. Capture several views of what is happening in order to evaluate the source and the solution of the problem.
Evaluate Harmonic Distortion of PowerModern electronic equipment introduces harmonics into a power system, which can have unforeseen consequences. Safety risks related to overheating can arise but can easily be identified by an analyzer with harmonics analysis.
Verify ATS & Backup PowerTrigger on loss of power to record the response of your ATS and backup power systems. Just as importantly, judge the handover of power from battery to diesel and from diesel to utility upon recovery. Trigger on current spikes and voltage over/under voltages that can damage equipment.
Power Factor MitigationEvaluate power factor correction needs by logging positive and negative VAR and DPF.
Evaluate Motor HealthIn addition to normal monitoring, log the voltage and current imbalance over time. Directly connect to 4160V motors with our optional medium voltage probes. Evaluate power at the motor and in front of VFDs for the full picture. factor correction, and power backup. Medium Voltage Solutions
Cost & Efficiency AnalysisAutomatically view projected cost, run time costs, peak demand period, power factor profiles and more to verify projected savings, check utility bills, shed loads, minimize power factor penalties.

Quick Start Guide
Wide Range Flexible Current Probe 1 - 6000 AmpsThe eFX6000 is a flexible AC current probe covering the entire measurement range of 1 to 6000 amps. The rope is just 0.91 inches (23 mm) thick so it can fit through narrow places and is 24 inches long so it can wrap around multiple cables or a busbar (36 inch length is also available). Self-powered via our meter, so there are NO batteries that can run down.
5 KVP Voltage Probes (3 Probes, Case)The PowerSight 5KVPSet allows you to safely directly monitor medium voltages up to 5KV. It is a set of three probes. Great for use with 4160V motors. Your only choice when there are no PTs (Potential Transformers) available or you want to bypass PTs.
