A revolutionary new idea

Camille Bauer Metrawatt AG sets a new standard for creating mains quality compliance reports, conveniently and without expensive software


An EN50160 NS compliance report
An exciting new innovation from Camille Bauer Metrawatt allows the generating of either standard-compliant or user-specific statistical reports directly from the measurement instrument. All this can be done completely autonomously without using proprietary software which sometimes makes life complicated for both users and IT departments. The function is easy to use and is called PQ EasyReporting.

The issue of power quality is frequently dealt with in isolation from other issues such as performance monitoring, load regulation, energy management or energy automation. However, because both mains supplies and consumers are increasingly affected by noise levels, it is essential to have a view of the total context. This means that power grid operators and increasingly also major consumers are faced with a difficult problem: this applies to all applications, no matter how different they are. Often, each one has a different software solution for performing measurements and ratings. Achieving compatibility between the various software solutions is frequently very difficult and expensive. And in some case it is even impossible. So, to solve this Camille Bauer Metrawatt has provided an ingenious solution. PQ EasyReporting.

The PQ3000 and PQ5000 mains quality measurement devices have a web-based feature for generating power quality reports directly from the measurement device. Standardised reports in PDF format are generated and made available to the user. Statistical standards according to EN50160, IEC61000-2-2, IEC61000-2-4 and IEC610002-12 can be selected directly on the instrument or externally via a web browser. It is also possible to enter and select individual limiting values. The time periods for the statistical evaluation is flexibly adjustable by the user, but should not be less than 7 days. The scope of the reports can be selected from three levels: a compliance summary, an overview with detailed statistics and an overview with both detailed statistics and a summary of events. Customers can also generate reports using their own company logo.

When upgrading or installing new equipment, or when performing ad hoc measurements, there is no need to purchase or upgrade expensive software solutions. PQ EasyReporting offers a simple method of generating compliance reports at any time without the need for additional software. It is very easy to use and it saves an enormous amount of time and money. And the guarantee that compliance reports contain accurate data according to the IEC61000-4-x test and measurement procedure is provided by Camille Bauer Metrawatt´s unique metrological certification according to IEC62586-2. This is virtually equivalent to having the measurement device officially calibrated for compliance with the relevant standards. "It couldn´t be more secure and simple!"
