    Chauvin Arnoux PEL103 Power & Energy Logger


    The Chauvin Arnoux PEL103 Power Energy Logger is designed to measure and record the consumption of electrical installations in order to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs. Featuring a backlit 4-line LCD capable of clearly displaying readings in real-time.

    • Suitable for use on single-phase, split-phase and three-phase installations
    • Can be installed without cutting off the mains power supply
    • Map the electrical consumption on a site
    • Gain a real-time snapshot of consumption
    • Analyse electrical network quality
    • Record harmonics up to the 50th order with phase indication
    • Record results to an SD card
    • Real-time communication with a PC
    • Data transfer and analysis with supplied PEL software

    Installation of the instrument can be performed without having to open the electrical network, while the magnetic panel on the rear and slim design allow the PEL103 to be quickly mounted onto all electrical cabinets even when the door is closed. Measurements are then performed using 3 additional current sensors and voltage inputs allowing the logger to record all electrical parameters including RMS frequency, voltage, current, power values and power factor. With this data the energy efficiency of your electrical distribution system can be continually monitored and optimised.

    The Chauvin Arnoux PEL103 provides real-time consumption readings that can be measured and compared against previous recordings, allowing users to easily target areas where a distribution system is performing poorly. This also makes it simple to make modifications and measure their impact.

    The PEL103 Power Energy Logger can also be installed in an electrical cabinet for extended periods to continuously monitor the active, apparent and reactive power values. It will instantly detect whenever the subscribed power threshold is exceeded, alerting users to overconsumption and an increase in energy bills.

    The Chauvin Arnoux PEL103 is ideal for monitoring energy consumption within the industrial and building sectors as well as on general distribution boards that are used by local authorities to control street lighting for example.

    PEL Transfer software is included for results transfer from the power energy logger to a PC. Once transferred, readings can be displayed in both tables and graphs for further analysis. The PEL software can also acquire real-time recordings from the logger, configure the unit and verify connections before you take measurements.
