43B Power Quality Analyzer


Fluke Australia - World’s leading handheld power quality analyzer receives significant technology upgrade.

• Expanded logging and reporting of waveform data

• Simplified user interface and how-to graphics

• Three-phase power measuring capability in balanced systems

EVERETT, WA – Fluke Corporation, a world leader in compact, professional electronic test tools, introduces the Fluke 43B Power Quality Analyzer. Upgraded from the industry-leading Fluke 43, the 43B includes improved functionality, a smarter user interface, and upgraded FlukeView® software.

The Fluke 43B combines a power quality analyzer, multimeter, and scope in one easy-to-use tool. It can show voltage and current waveforms and calculate power parameters as well as capture voltage sags, transients, and in-rush current.

The Fluke 43B’s power mode measures three-phase power in balanced systems using a single set of voltage probes and one current clamp, while on-screen graphics show you how to set up the measurement. The 43B has 20 storage locations (twice as many as the 43) for waveform data, readings and settings. These data can easily be recalled for later analysis using cursors. The improved scope functionality offers a 25 MS/s dual-input digital oscilloscope with advanced triggering capabilities.

The original Fluke 43 won the prized Industrie Forum award for its easy-to-use menu structure. The Fluke 43B has an even smarter user interface that lets you toggle between two states through the most often-used power quality modes (volt/amps/hertz, power, and harmonics) with a single keystroke. The improved interface gives you easy access to the scope functions with just four function keys and a straightforward menu.

The upgraded FlukeView software for the 43B supports: logging, reading, and displaying of harmonics; logging of all readings shown on the instrument screen; and an easy exchange of data to other programs. It runs on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0, and 2000.

“Unlike standard power quality analyzers, the handheld 43B is designed to help electricians and electrical technicians troubleshoot power problems and diagnose equipment failures in the field,” said David Pereles, marketing manager, electrical products for Fluke. “With the improved functionality of the Fluke 43B analyzer’s dynamic and intermittent fault tracking, the user has a complete power quality analyzer in a rugged, complete — and portable — handheld package.”

The Fluke 43B comes with a carrying case, probes, test leads, clips, current clamp, RS232-cable, charger, FlukeView software, manuals, and an instruction video in the local language.
