The time and cost of deploying PQ instrumentation only to return later in order to retrieve it (without the guarantee that the PQ anomaly has occurred) is often times exorbitant. In some instances, the deployment isn’t as costly (i.e. connecting to an electric motor to capture the harmonic distortions caused by the motor startup), but the paradigm of recording and waiting doesn’t fit either. In both of these cases the ability to remotely and concurrently view the PQ measurements as they are being made can be vital in both an economic sense and in the sense of practicality. For on-site situations, a wireless connection can greatly decrease shock and arc flash hazards while ensuring that the PQ analyzer is connected and recording as desired.
