Chauvin Arnoux CA 8230 kit | Power quality analyser

Contact Instrument Solutions

The Chauvin Arnoux CA 8230 single-phase or balanced three-phase power analyser is easy to use. Equipped with direct access to its various functions, the CA 8230 provides all measurements needed for a comprehensive diagnostic of power and energy in an electrical installation. The instrument displays and records up to 17 different power quality parameters which allows the user to measure and qualify electrical network harmonics. There is also an inrush mode for starter current that shows a detailed waveform during the first few seconds of powering up. Designed with direct access buttons this allows simple operation of the power analyser's various functions and the unit will automatically recognise the type of sensor it is connected to.

Common customer questions & answers

QQuestion How long is the battery life of the unit?
AAnswer Typically the life of the internal battery is 40 hours when fully charges, and for all logging applications BSRIA would recommend the use of the PSU.
QQuestion Within the BSRIA hire fleet the CT’S that come provided with the CA8230 are they capable of reading both AC & DC current?
AAnswer No, the CT’S that come provided from Instrument Solutions hire will only read AC current only. If you have a DC application please call the Instrument Solutions team on 01344 459314 to discuss your requirements.
