Measure Power Quality Events Accurately with the Amprobe DM-III Power Quality Analyzer

by Protec Tech Team August 09, 2012

Amprobe DM-IIIWhen power quality deteriorates, your electrical system and equipment is at risk of premature failure. Bad power quality also causes electromagnetic interference to be radiated throughout the facility. This means sensitive equipment like computers and hospital machines may operate erratically or lock up. This can cause serious problems and interruption of service. Technicians often evaluate the power quality of an electrical system to ensure maximum efficiency and to prolong the operating life of equipment.
