Class A power quality analyser

The UMG 511 power quality analyser is particularly suitable for monitoring power quality according to standards such as the EN 50160. All power quality parameters are collected and analysed.


Class A
Measuring devices in class A are certified to the IEC 61000-4-30 standard. It provides detailed specifications that a mains analyser must meet so that the results can also be consulted in case of disputes. The standard defines the necessary parameters, suitable measurement methods, accuracy and bandwidths. This makes it possible to easily reproduce and compare results.

Flicker refers to the subjective impression of visibly noticeable brightness fluctuations, caused by a temporal change to the light density or the spectral distribution. The cause is voltage variations. As of a specific threshold value, flicker occurrences become disturbing and harmful to health under certain circumstances. The standard DIN EN 61000-4-15 controls the details.

Powerful RCM residual current monitoring already detects leakage currents in their initial stages before they cause system failures or even fires. It is already integrated in certain UMG measuring devices. The measuring current transformer that is required can be installed manually at a later date if required. Continuous RCM monitoring increases the system safety and availability significantly. In specific applications such as the data centre, residual current monitoring is essential due to the high availability requirements.
