Comprehensive data logging experience with Keysight Meter Logger software


When it comes to the need to observe measurements over a period of time, Keysight Meter Logger software provides a comprehensive data logging experience with Keysight U1280 Series as well as other Keysight U1200 Series handheld DMMs. The handheld DMM can be easily connected to the Meter Logger software that runs on a PC via Infrared (IR)-to-USB cable, or to do so wirelessly with the optional Keysight Remote Link solution.


Data Logging


Built-in low pass filter
Today, three-phase AC electric motors are the most important workhorses in industry and commercial facilities. With the advent of solid state electronics, variable speed drives (VFD) are used to regulate the speed of three-phase AC motors to increase the efficiency of AC motors. However, the increased use of VFDs present challenges to technicians in getting accurate voltage, current and frequency measurements that match with readings shown on the VFD’s control panel display.


Many true RMS DMMs that have high AC bandwidth are measuring VFD signals up to 20% to 30% higher than the drive’s controller display due to the reason that DMMs are measuring the carrier  frequency/switching frequency generated by VFDs. Keysight U1280 Series comes with LPF (low pass filter) feature which blocks unwanted high frequency signal from VFDs’ switching components. The net result is an accurate measurement of VFD’s output signal which helps to expedite the maintenance or troubleshooting tasks of VFDs.
