Extech Appliance Tester and Power Analyzer
The Extech Appliance Tester and Power Analyzer is a compact battery operated device for analyzing AC power loads.
- Battery or AC adaptor provides line isolation
- Plug device to be tested directly into the power analyzer
- Four simultaneous displays of watts, power factor or VA, voltage or Hz, amps
|380803||Appliance tester and power analyzer, datalogger function|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
|380803-NIST||Appliance tester and power analyzer, datalogger function, NIST traceable|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
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.

Where and how to monitor water quality is always a challenge, particularly in complex aquatic ecosystems. The new REASON Project from a team at Clarkson University is working to demonstrate the utility of using water quality instrumentation in dams on major rivers in the Great Lakes system.
Clarkson University Professor of Biology Michael Twiss spoke with EM about the new approach their team is taking at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam across the St. Lawrence River and the benefits the development of smart infrastructure such as this might offer.
“The upper St. Lawrence River is defined as that which leaves Lake Ontario and is just upstream from the city of Montreal,” explains Dr. Twiss.Read More
As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis.
The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it.
“This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.”
From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture.
Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&;M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS.
“TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.Read More
