Fluke 430 Series
Three-Phase Power
Quality Analyzers
Pinpoint power problems
faster, safer and in greater detail
The Fluke 434 and 433 three-phase power quality
analyzers help you locate, predict, prevent and troubleshoot problems in power distribution systems.
These easy-to-use handhelds are a “must have” for
any person who maintains or troubleshoots three
phase distribution. The new IEC standards for
flicker and power quality are built right in to take
the guess work out of monitoring.
Records all your necessary values in a three
phase system.
Minimal setup required with intuitive menus.
System-Monitor: Six power quality parameters
on one dashboard
Automatic Transient display: Never miss an event.
Highest safety rating in the industry.
Four voltage and four current channels.
Captures waveform data on all phases
Auto Trend: Don’t waste time setting up recordings.
Rugged, handheld recorder.
Seven hours operating time per charge on NiMH battery pack.
Transfer data files to your PC for reporting and analysis using
FlukeView® software.
CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V safety rating
Designed to help protect you and your equipment against
electrical shock and fire, the Fluke 430 Series analyzers,
accessories and charger are all certified to meet the stringent
safety standards for use in CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V
environments. They are the first tools of their kind to carry
the CAT IV rating and therefore can be used at virtually all
power connections and outlets in a low-voltage power
distribution system.
Technical Data
Quickly see the trend
Measures everything
Auto Trend feature allows fast insight into
changes over time. Every displayed reading is
automatically and continuously recorded without
having to set thresholds or intervals and without
manually starting the process. Quickly view trends
for voltage, current, frequency, power, harmonics
or flicker on all phases and neutral. Analyze the
trends using the cursors and zoom tools — even
while background recording continues.
Measure true-rms & peak voltage and current,
frequency, dips and swells, transients, interruptions, power and power consumption, peak
demand harmonics, inter-harmonics, flicker and
Simple menu structure with logical function grouping gives fast access
to key measurements.
AutoTrend automatically records all displayed parameters in the background. Toggle between data and trend view and use cursors and
zoom to analyze measurements without interrupting the recording.
Track harmonics up to the 50th, and measure and record THD in
accordance with IEC61000-4-7 requirements.
Automatic transient display
Every time an event or distortion on voltage is
detected, the instrument triggers and automatically stores voltage and current waveforms on all
three phases and neutral. The analyzer will also
trigger when a certain current value level is
exceeded. Up to 40 dips, swells, interruptions
and transients can be captured this way. You can
see voltage transients as high as 6 kV and as
fast as 5 microseconds.

The System-Monitor overview screen gives instant insight into
whether the voltage, harmonics, flicker, frequency and the number of
dips and swells fall outside the set limits.
Thanks to thoughtful features like user-friendly
menus in local languages and setups with minimal steps. The high-resolution color screen
updates every 200 mS and displays waveforms
and wiring diagrams color coded to industry
standards. Handy on-screen wiring diagrams for
all commonly used three phase and single phase
configurations guide you through connections.
A detailed list is given of all events falling outside the set limits. By
scrolling through the event list and selecting an event, the event can
be analyzed in detail.
Extensive data analysis possibilities
The Fluke 430 Series provides three ways to
analyze measurements. Cursors and zoom tools

The inrush current begins when the Arms half cycle rises above the inrush threshold, and ends
when the Arms half cycle rms is equal to or below the inrush threshold minus a user-selected
hysteresis value. The measurement is the square root of the mean of the squared Arms half
cycle values measured during the inrush duration. Each half-cycle interval is contiguous and
non-overlapping as recommended by IEC 61000-4-30. Markers indicate inrush duration.
Cursors allow measurement of peak Arms half cycle.
