Pronto — Sof tware for R angers
However clever the Ranger instrument is, however much information it collects, however accurate is the data,
of most interest to you the user is the answer to ‘how easy is it to make use of my data?’
The answer lies with Pronto. Our software Pronto first came out in 1985. From the start emphasis was placed
on making Pronto easy to use, useful and reliable. By the year 2000 Pronto had reached its fifth
generation. Pronto for Windows has benefited particularly all users who wish to make full use of the
Microsoft ® Windows Operating System.
Pronto and Adaptive Store make a strong partnership. Here’s a scenario.
‘Start a Ranger recording. (That’s easy as well). We make sure the factory default set up is a most useful one
and in this case the logger will record for 7 days. At the end of the recording download to Pronto and see the
data take form in the graphs or reports you choose. Clear instructions guide you the first time. Note the detail
you are getting, down to a single cycle. Zoom in and out. Label points.
Note the many parameters that have been recorded for you by the Ranger.
There are fewer cries of " I wish I had remembered to set up to record…."
Look at your data values, perhaps the maximums or minimums are not what you expected. Now, even after
your recording is finished, you may choose to produce out of limit (exception) reports. They can now depend
upon the results your Ranger has just given you.’
Rangers with Pronto and Adaptive Store will look after you.
For the final answer to your question, ‘how easy is it to make use of my data?’ watch our 54 minute video on
‘How to use Pronto’. It comes with your Ranger kit.
You will find the world of Power Quality opening up in an exciting way.

Flicker in the r anger pm series
What is Flicker?
Flicker is the name given to changing light intensity caused by fluctuations in the voltage. It is the second most
common power quality problem, causing both irritation and possible medical
consequences to users exposed to its effects.
Why are the Ranger Power Masters the best analyzers for
measuring and analyzing Flicker?
Rangers calculate and record the Instantaneous Flicker Sensation, Short Term Perceptibility,
and Long Term Perceptibility. (These are known as Pfs, Pst and Plt respectively.)
A Pfs measurement of 1 is the point at which 50% of the human population becomes aware of the flicker.
A Pst of 1 describes the point at which 50% of the population actually becomes irritated by the flicker while Plt
indicates the irritation caused by irregular flicker effects over a longer period.
In Ranger PM Products all three parameters are derived using the IEEE 1453 and IEC 61000-4-15
model for human behavior.
The measurement process meets all the Flicker Tests specified in both Standards, and in
addition meets the linearity tests being proposed by CIGRE for the highest class of instruments.

RECORDING INTERHARMONICS —PM7000
Interharmonics are available to be recorded as individuals (specified by Harmonic if an integer number or by
frequency), and/or as Interharmonic or Harmonic Groups and Sub-groups. They may be referenced to the
appropriate fundamental grouping if desired. In all there are 12 selection methods:
Interharmonics are recorded in the PM7000 as Detail Troubleshooting Channels using the Adaptive Store
or Point Store methods. The Interharmonics Function Group selection screen is populated with the twelve
selection possibilities. Choosing any of these functions leads to a choice of relevant parameters, signal and
harmonic etc., thus complete flexibility is available.
Today more and more companies are concerned with interharmonics. Interharmonic frequencies are not
integer multiples of the fundamental frequency (i.e.- 120hz = 2nd harmonic on a 60hz system), but are all
other frequencies that are between the multiples (i.e.- 122hz, 75hz).
Interharmonics exist alongside the fundamental and other harmonics. They cause irregular distortion and
can cause strange effects in sensitive equipment .
InterHarmonics Calculations
Harmonics, Harmonics Groups and Sub-groups; InterHarmonics, InterHarmonics Groups and Sub-groups
are all available and calculated according to IEC61000-4-30 (which calls IEC 61000-4-7).
IEC 61000-4-7 calls for a Transform input time of ~200ms (10 cycles at 50Hz or 12 cycles at 60Hz) and
hence the bandwidth is nominally 5Hz. The diagram below shows the 60Hz case:
Note that as shown in the diagram the spectrum is in fact continuous, and not just a series of lines. However the transform methods usually used for computational convenience only yield results at the above
line intervals (50Hz, 60Hz or 5Hz), so the spectrum is often represented as a line spectrum.
Having resolved the spectrum into 5Hz elements, the authors of the Standards defined various groupings
of 5Hz elements to describe harmonic energy in the chunks appropriate to different applications.
(See the IEC 61000-4-7 Standard for further application information).

RECORDING INTERHARMONICS —CONTINUED
The groupings are of six types (A) to (F), as shown below:
These are:
(A) Individual Harmonics. This grouping is just the single line at an integer harmonic frequency.
(In this case the 2nd Harmonic, 120Hz.)
(B) Harmonic Sub-groups comprising integer harmonics plus the two adjacent Interharmonics.
This grouping shows the 3rd Harmonic Sub-group around 180Hz.
(C) Harmonic groups. These Groups comprise all the energy from half-way between the harmonic below the nominal to half-way above. The components at 210 and 270Hz are halved so that between them, the Groups centered on (e.g.) the 3rd and 4th harmonics (which both have contributions from the Interharmonic line at 210Hz)
use 100% of all the available components.
The above three groupings are centered on actual harmonics. In addition to individual Interharmonics ((D) below) there
are also two groupings centered halfway between harmonics to deliberately exclude harmonics themselves:
(D) Individual Interharmonics. This grouping is just the single line at a non-integer harmonic frequency.
(In this case at 45Hz.). [Individual Interharmonics are sometimes indexed as the Nth Interharmonic of the Mth
harmonic group, in this case 0:9 (9th Interharmonic of the Zeroth harmonic = 0 * 60 Hz + 9 * 5Hz = 45Hz).
Because of the need to accommodate 50 and 60 Hz in the PM7000 and the possibility of this indexing being
ambiguous, the frequency itself is used.]
(E) Interharmonic Sub-groups. These Sub-groups contain the lines not included in the Harmonic Sub-groups.
The Sub-group shown (E) comprises the 70 Hz to 110 Hz contributions, and for the PM7000 this is described
as the Sub-group below the 2nd Harmonic.
(F) Interharmonic Groups. These Groups contain all the lines between integer harmonics. The Group shown (F)
has contributions from 185 to 235 Hz, and in the PM7000 nomenclature is described as the Group below
the 4th Harmonic.
Notice how the Interharmonic Sub-group and Group contributions complement the Harmonic Sub-group and Individual
Harmonics respectively.
Parameter values for group and sub-groups combinations are calculated from the Root Sum Squares of the relevant individual Interharmonics, and each final result is filtered with 1.5sec time constant first order filter.
