  1. Chauvin Arnoux Explain Energy Efficiency & the IET Wiring Regulations

    On the left side of image white text on a black background reads "Chauvin Arnoux Explain Energy Efficiency & the IET Wiring Regulations". On the right side of the image a Chauvin Arnoux PEL104 is monitoring an electrical installation. Julian Grant of Chauvin Arnoux published an article in the January 2022 issue of Professional Electrician & Installer explaining an emerging focus of the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations: energy efficiency. As energy prices rise and we continue to work towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, ensuring electrical installations are energy efficient is more important than ever.[1] Continue reading →
  2. Fluke’s Five Reasons to Monitor Power Consumption

    On the left, white text on a black background reads '5 Reasons to Monitor Power Consumption'. On the right hands wearing white work gloves are holding and operating a Fluke 1770-Series Power Logger. Monitoring power consumption equips you with the data needed to make important energy management decisions. Knowing your energy usage is critical to understanding the capacity of your existing electrical panel, troubleshooting circuit breaker trips, identifying energy costs, and uncovering energy waste. It can help you to maximise plant safety, decrease and verify bills while increasing energy efficiency, secure rebates and financial incentives, and locate and troubleshoot power quality issues.[1] Continue reading →
  3. 4 Things to Consider When Installing an EV Chargepoint

    The UK government announced a series of measures to end the country’s contribution to climate change by 2050 and achieve a greener transport future. These steps include phasing out the sale of new petrol and diesel cars/vans by 2030 and ensuring that all new cars/vans are fully zero-emissions at the tailpipe from 2035. Plans are supported by over £1.8 billion of government funding intended to encourage the uptake of greener vehicles. Funding includes grants for purchasing zero or ultra-low emissions cars/vans, as well as grants for local authorities, businesses, and homeowners to install EV chargepoints. The UK government has pledged £1.3 billion to accelerate the installation of electric vehicle charging stations in homes and on streets across the UK, as well as on motorways in England.[1] However, installing an EV charger is not as simple as just connecting it to your electricity supply. There are many factors to consider and electrical parameters that need to be monitored. Investing in a portable energy logger, such as Chauvin Arnoux’s PEL103, provides an easy, ergonomic, and economic solution to evaluating your company’s capacity to support multiple EV chargepoints.[2] Continue reading →
  4. Eight Steps Businesses Should Take Towards Energy Efficiency

    It is estimated that most of the UK’s businesses are energy inefficient; recent studies show that some businesses are squandering 50% of their electrical energy usage. Not only is this bad for business as it drives overhead costs up and, therefore, profits down, it also results in unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions. The damaging economic impacts and positive environmental side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic mean it has never been more important to monitor energy usage. PELs (portable energy loggers), such as the Chauvin Arnoux PEL103, provide a compact, convenient, and clever solution to monitoring, optimising, and subsequently reducing energy consumption.[1] Continue reading →
  5. Introducing Portable Energy Loggers: What Are PELs & Do You Need One?

    Portable energy loggers, or PELs, are compact, comprehensive test instruments that measure, monitor, and record an array of electrical parameters. They can be used to troubleshoot electrical systems and, more importantly, identify sources of energy and/or power wastage contributing to inflated utility bills, as well as excessive and unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions.[1] Continue reading →

  7. Power Quality Analysis is now more Affordable

    Three-phase power quality analysis has never been more affordable with the launch of the Fluke 1730 energy logger, which is 25 percent cheaper than earlier models. Three-phase AC electrical supply has a number of advantages over single-phase as the phase currents cancel each other out, allowing reduced neutral wire size in the case of star wiring or to eliminate it altogether in the case of delta wiring.
