Designed to cover all 600 V CAT IV and 1000 V CAT III applications in compliance with
the IEC 61010 standard, the Qualistar+ range is divided up according to the functions
provided and the connections available:
C.A 8331 & C.A 8333: 4 voltage inputs and 3 current inputs,
C.A 8336 & C.A 8435: 5 voltage inputs and 4 current inputs.
The whole range benefits from a set of inserts and rings for customizing the colour-coding
in each country. Equipped with IP67 connections to ensure water-proofing, the C.A 8435 is
also compatible with all the existing Qualistar measuring accessories.

Qualistar+ range
Functions
Connections
The Qualistar models are ideal for applications on all types
of electrical networks, from the simplest to the most complex:
• Single-phase, split-phase and three-phase with
or without neutral
• All types of 2, 3, 4 and 5-wire electrical networks
• 2-wattmeters method
• ARON
• 2 ½ elements…
Longer Inrush…
over 10 minutes!
The Inrush current corresponds to the
maximum input current drawn by an
electrical device when it is powered up.
This measurement helps to size the
electrical installation correctly.
The Inrush is measured over
a period of 10 minutes.
Once you have chosen
the acquisition mode (RMS or
peak), the Qualistar captures
everything.
Short or long-term flicker
The flicker (as defined by the IEC/EN
standard) characterizes voltage variations
which cause lighting fluctuations, for
example.
According to the applicable standards, the Flicker level is expressed by
two parameters:
• Pst ( short-term flicker)
Calculation of the Pst, which is used to assess the flicker level,
is based on statistical processing of the voltage signal sampled.
It is measured over a period of 10 minutes
• Plt (long-term flicker)
This is a multiple of the Pst. It is measured over a period of 2 hours.

Power and energy quality analysers
Energy values, including
Tonnes Oil Equivalent
The Qualistar models measure energy.
This mode displays all the values
relating to power and energy.
• “Start” and “Stop” keys
to activate and deactivate
summing of the energy values.
• A new feature is the wide variety of units available:
kW, Joule, nuclear toe, non-nuclear toe, BTU, etc
Calculation of K factor for transformers
The harmonic currents flowing in a network
lead to increased losses in the windings.
This results in heating of the transformer
and reduces the life span of the instruments
connected.
• compliance with the NF EN 50464-3
standard for calculating transformer
derating.
• the FHL and European K factor
parameters are recorded and measured
simultaneously.
Harmonics
Distorting power
All the useful parameters are
measured: global THD and
per phase on U, I, V and VA,
phase offset of harmonics.
Some models offer a VA
harmonics function and an
“expert mode”.
New!
Breakdown of the reactive power values,
with the concept of non-active power (N),
distorting power (D) and reactive power
(Q & Q1).
• Breakdown of the reactive power
to find the distorting power linked
to the harmonics (VAD).
• Distorting power for sizing the harmonic
filters.
• Reactive power (var) of the fundamental
for sizing the battery of the powercorrection capacitor.
New: the harmonics measurement function is more comprehensive:
• calculation of the harmonics in %f and %r
• decomposition of the harmonics on the neutral conductor
• calculation of the distorting voltages and currents

by the Qualistar.
By configuring the ratios, it is possible to obtain direct readings of the
measurements on the transformer primary.
Practical advantages

models
A cable with an ESSAILEC plug can be used for
testing without disturbances or interruptions
in the power supply circuit on meters and the
protective relays installed in the secondary circuits
of the current or voltage transformers. The main
advantage is quick and simple measurement with
maximum user safety.

EN 50160
The EN 50160 European standard regulates
the quality of the voltage distributed by
electricity suppliers. To define the quality of
the voltage, a measurement campaign must
be carried out over a 7-day period with an
IEC 61000-4-30 instrument.
The measurements correspond to the different types
of disturbances liable to affect the voltage:
voltage drops, outages, overvoltages, slow voltage
variations, network frequency variations, voltage
unbalance, harmonics, rapid voltage variations, flicker.
