Power quality recorder 

Power quality  recorder SICAM Q200 perspective view


SICAM Q200 is a network analyzer for high-definition acquisition and assessment of the power quality in electrical power supply systems. It offers algorithms and functions for energy management applications. The device supports continuous acquisition and analysis of all relevant parameters. These results help to identify and implement quality programs to ensure the supply quality. This increases the service life of the equipment while at the same time reducing downtimes. SICAM Q200 is a PQ device Class A acc. to IEC 62586-1/2 and IEC 61000-4-30 Ed. 3 beyond Class A and acquires, visualizes, analyzes and transmits alternating current characteristics such as current, voltage, frequency, performance, harmonic, etc. The measured variables can be provided to a PC, an energy automation/SCADA system and/or shown on a display using communication interfaces. In addition, the SICAM Q200 provides a combined recording and analysis function for measured values directly in the device. Long-term data and events can be transferred to SICAM PQS / PQ Analyzer System via IEC 61850, and flexible analyses and reports (e.g. EN 50160) can be generated.

Power quality recorder SICAM Q200


Continuous Monitoring of Supply Quality


One of the most frequent causes of unplanned downtimes and device failures is the insufficient quality of the supplied electrical energy. The acquisition and documentation of parameters relevant to supply quality is an important step to identify possible weak points and initiate appropriate measures to eliminate them.



SICAM Q200 is used in single-phase as well as in three-wire and four-wire systems (with neutral conductor) in power utilities, industries, data centers and in commerce.
