Contral - Official Distributor

The C.A 8230 single-phase or balanced three-phase power analyser is economical and extremely easy to use. Ideal for on-site or bench-top use, the C.A 8230 is equipped with direct access to its various functions, it also provides greater safety by automatically recognising the type of sensor connected. 
Providing you with all the power measurements you need, it will enable you to measure and qualify your electrical network harmonics. An Inrush mode for starter currents will show your waveform in detail during several seconds. The C.A 8230 has a recording mode and a trigger mode for alarms.

The C.A 8230 is can be used with Chauvin Arnoux's (Power Analyser Transfer) software for processing the measurements on a PC (display, analysis, etc). The software is available free of charge here..  

The PAT software is a tool for:

  • Configuring the instruments,
  • Downloading and viewing the data stored in the memory,
  • Performing instantaneous acquisition operations,
  • Displaying the data as a table or graph,
  • Exporting the measurement data into DataView (*.dvb files) or into a spreadsheet.
