Fluke 434 Series II - Calculate energy loss in your local currency
The Fluke 434 II Energy Analyzer is the ideal tool for energy logging. Utilizing the new Energy Loss Calculator function, the 434 II measures the fiscal cost of energy wasted due to poor power quality. This energy monetization capability allows you to identify the most energy-wasteful areas of your facility so you can determine potential energy saving solutions. Add basic power quality measurements to the package and you’re got yourself one powerful troubleshooting tool.

Load studies – verify electrical system capacity before adding loads
Power inverter efficiency
Power inverters take DC current and transform it into AC current, or vice versa. Solar generation systems usually include an inverter that takes the DC energy from the solar cells and converts it to useful AC power. Inverters can lose performance over time and need to be checked. By comparing the input power with the output power you can determine the system efficiency. The 430 series II can measure the efficiency of such inverters by simultaneously measuring the DC and AC power of a system to determine how much power is lost in the conversion process.
Unified Power Measurement
Fluke’s patented Unified Power Measurement system (UPM) provides the most comprehensive view of power available, measure:
- Parameters of Classical Power (Steinmetz 1897) and IEEE 1459-2000 Power
- Detailed Loss Analysis
- Unbalance Analysis
These UPM calculations are used to quantify the fiscal cost of energy loss caused by power quality issues. The calculations are computed, along with other facility-specific information, by an Energy Loss Calculator that ultimately determines how much money a facility loses due to wasted energy.
AutoTrend - Quickly see the trend
Unique AutoTrend gives you fast insight into changes over time. Every displayed reading is automatically and continuously recorded without having to set up threshold levels or having to manually start the process. You can quickly view trends in voltage, current, frequency, power, harmonics or flicker on all three phases plus neutral.
SystemMonitor - Check performance against EN50160 with ease
With a single push of a button, the unique System-Monitor gives you an overview of power system performance, and checks the compliance of incoming power to EN50160 limits or to your own custom specifications. The overview is shown on a single screen, with color-coded bars clearly indicating which parameters fall outside the limits.
