Power-Quality Monitor

Power Standards

The PQ1 Power Quality Relay announces when disturbances on the power line are damaging or disrupting commercial sound systems and home theaters. Less than one-tenth the size of traditional power-quality monitors, the PQ1 has a simple interface: AC power in and relay contacts out. Contractors and technicians can use it as a diagnostic tool, or it can be built in to larger automation and control systems as part of a remote diagnostic system. The PQ1 Power Quality Relay detects all common power-quality events: voltage sags, interruptions, voltage swells, and high-frequency impulses.
