Chauvin Arnoux PEL 103 Magnetic Data Logger with Triple Digital Display

The PEL103 Power and Energy Logger has been designed for all electrical installations/types of cabinets and provides all the power and energy measurements simultaneously.

These measurements are performed with 3 current sensors and voltage inputs. They can be used to view all the electrical parameters and to take advantage of the measurement, energy metering and communication functions, offering users all the necessary measurements for successful energy efficiency projects and monitoring of your electricity distribution system.

The PEL100 family of energy meters makes it simple to add metering and measurement points in electrical cabinets where most of the space is already occupied. Because they are magnetic,  they can be set up very easily in any cabinet and do not cause any obstruction once the cabinet door is closed.
