Key features

  • Key measurements: Voltage, current, power, power factor and associated values enable you to optimize and implement your energy saving strategies.
  • Bright, color touch screen: Perform convenient in-the-field analysis and data checks with full graphical display.
  • Power the instrument directly from the measured circuit: Eliminating the need to find a power outlet while allowing the instrument to be secured safely inside electrical panels. Wide voltage range from 90V to 550V AC.
  • Comprehensive logging: More than 20 separate logging sessions can be stored on the instrument. In fact, all measured values are automatically logged and can be reviewed during logging and before downloading for on-the-go analysis.
  • Two USB ports: One for WiFi or direct PC connection and another for fast, simple download to standard USB thumb drives, or other USB devices (WiFi requires external USB WiFi adaptor).
  • Optimized user interface: Capture the right data every time with quick, guided, graphical setup and reduce uncertainty about your connections with the intelligent verification function.
  • Complete "in-the-field" setup through the front panel: No need to return to the workshop for download and setup or to take a computer to the electrical panel.
  • Compact size: Designed to fit in tight spaces and panels.
  • Highest safety rating in the industry: 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III rated for use at the service entrance and downstream.

Easily Discover Opportunities for Energy Savings for Your Facility

The Fluke 1730 Three-Phase Electrical Energy Logger introduces a new simplicity to discovering sources of electrical energy waste. No other energy logger on the market can deliver a 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III safety rating, directly download data from the instrument while still logging to a USB stick or via USB to PC connection and store multiple logging sessions on the instrument.

With the 1730, you can:

  • Easily discover when and where energy is being consumed in your facility, from the service entrance to the individual circuits.
  • Compare multiple data points over time and build the complete picture of energy usage with Fluke Energy Analyze software package.
  • Quickly understand specific points of energy loss, reduce energy bills more easily than ever.
  • Measures and log two other associated parameters such as temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure etc.

The Fluke 1730 is the best choice when looking for a dedicated energy logger for performing energy surveys and load studies.

Take Energy Surveys to the Next Level

If you’re looking to take your energy surveys to the next level, show up with the 1730 Energy Logger and a VT series of Visual IR Thermometers or the Ti125 Infrared Camera to quickly identify opportunities for energy savings both electrically and thermally. When using a thermal imaging camera or a visual IR thermometer along with the 1730 Energy Logger, you'll be able to discover potential problems that could be wasting energy and then quantify them electrically with the 1730 Energy Logger.

Reviews: Fluke 1730/Basic Three-Phase Energy Logger

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought the fluke 1730 few month ago and i m so satisfied with it. I use it to check the power consumption in the building.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use We purchased this about two years ago for calibrating test stand power meters and it works very well. We often use the recording functionality and export the logged data to csv files for data charting. It has plenty of storage to a week worth of logging file. Also the cable setup is very easy it has on screen diagrams for how it should be connected and even if you get it wrong it can auto correct itself. All measurements current voltage and power can be viewed numerically or in a scrolling plot. The only downside i have often thought was you can't cursor into the plots to see specific values or adjust the yaxis scaling it only auto-adjusts. It's an excellent device for a.c. power current and voltage measurements.
