The Extech Appliance Tester and Power Analyzer is a compact battery operated device for analyzing AC power loads.
The Extech Appliance Tester and Power Analyzer simultaneously displays watts, power factor or VA, voltage or Hz, and amps. It performs true RMS voltage and current measurements if sine, square, triangular, and distorted wave forms with a crest factor of less than 5. The battery or AC adaptor provides line isolation, and users can plug a device to be tested directly into the power analyzer. Sampling update rae is 2.5 times/second. Model 380803 includes a built-in datalogger that stores up to 1,012 readings.
The software allows users to download stored data or save data directly, and to create an ASCII file. Computation include phase angle, apparent and reactive power, consumption and cost, and power factor correction. Applications include measuring and auditing power consumption of single phase devices, evaluating load performances under varying line conditions, demonstrating the effectiveness of power conservation efforts, and characterizing device AC power requirements.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
