A Phase Angle Meter helps determine if metering, protective relaying devices and/or other power system apparatus are properly installed or configured. Phase angle measurements can also be used in calculating other useful parameters such as power factor.
Phase angle measuring equipment can be used in a multitude of applications where troubleshooting and installation verification is required. If installed incorrectly, electrical apparatus can overheat, potentially damaging the equipment and other related circuits .
A commonly use meter is the Dranetz 314 Phase Angle Meter. It features comparison of phase angles between two currents, two voltages or a voltage and current. It has dual current and voltage inputs with a maximum input voltage of 230 VAC and a maximum current of 10 amperes. It is built with a sturdy case that can withstand rough handling.
