Chauvin Arnoux CA8331 Qualistar + Power Quality Analyser Details

Chauvin Arnoux's entry-level power quality analyser in their 8330 range, the CA8331 is suitable for carrying out basic power measurements and diagnosing problems with complex electrical systems.

Easy to handle and compact enough to easily port from test point to test point, the CA8331 is equipped with 3 voltage measurement channels and 3 current measurement channels, allowing it to be easily configured to a system (note: current sensors sold separately - see attached datasheet for more information).

When connected the CA8331 can be used to gain an entire snapshot of the system, measuring and displaying AC/DC voltage and current plus frequency as well as power values (W, VA, var, VAD, PF, DPF, cos φ, tan φ) and energy values (Wh, varh, VAh, VADh, BTU, toe, Joule). It can also measure harmonics from 0 up to the 50th order and can record flicker (Pst and Plt).

Measurements are shown in real-time on a large size full colour LCD screen.
