Chauvin Arnoux Qualistar 8345 Power Quality Analyser

The most powerful and feature-packed Qualistar yet, offering high measurement accuracy!

Equally well suited for diagnostic fault finding on electrical installations, auditing electricity consumption and validating the quality of electrical supplies. The Qualistar 8345 combines exceptional flexibility with ease of use, extensive communication options and full compliance with IEC 61000-4-30 Class A. The CA 8345 sets new standards for versatility and convenience, and is suitable for use on all types of single- and three-phase systems up to 1,000 V.

Intended for inspection and maintenance teams on industrial or tertiary installations, the Qualistar 8345 snapshots the main electrical network quality features.

The CA 8345 is comfortable to handle and equipped with an intuitive user-interface.

All recorded date is saved on an accessible SD card and transferrable to a PC by means of software, or by duplication on a USB drive connected directly to the unit. The memory card can also be extracted.


Qualistar 8345 Key Features:

  • 1000V three-phase analyser
