PCE-PCM 1 is a multipurpose digital multimeter or power analyzer used to measure alternating current (AC), voltage (TRMS) and frequency to determine active (kW), apparent (kVA) and reactive (kVAR) power as well as active energy (kWh) consumption. Both the phase angle and the power factor (cos φ) are shown on the handheld power meter's large and easy-to-read backlit display. The power analyzer aids in evaluating power and energy use in machines and electrical installations. The device's compact design allows for measurements to be taken in the field and on the go. Up to 99 measurement values can be saved to the internal memory of the power meter. The meter features a USB port, allowing for quick and easy data transfer to a PC for detailed analysis.
