Continuous, streaming three-phase power measurements
The compact Fluke 3540 FC monitors three-phase systems and streams data to the Fluke Connect Cloud. The measurement data is available on any connected device using Fluke Connect mobile app or Fluke Connect Condition Monitoring software.
The Fluke 3540 FC measures:
- Current (A)
- Voltage (V)
- Frequency (Hz)
- Power (W)
- Apparent power (VA)
- Non-active power (var)
- Power factor (PF)
- Total harmonic distortion voltage (%)
- Total harmonic distortion current (%)
Graphs are available to show the trends and fluctuations of the measurements during the monitoring period. Alarm settings notify users immediately when measurement values are outside specified thresholds.
The Fluke 3540 FC also includes a mode to log measurements when no connection to the Fluke Connect Cloud is available. Data can then be transferred using the Fluke Connect mobile app.
