Precise, reliable and flexible

Panel mounted Energy analyzer

Polar Energy (the successor of the Elcontrol VIP 396 energy analyzer) is a multifunctional panel (96 x 96 mm) mounted tool, ideal for remote measurement, display and remote monitoring of electrical quantities.
It features a 128×128 graphic display of great visibility and comfortable frontal buttons for direct consultation and setup. It has a wide range of electrical measurements.

Compared to the predecessor VIP396, it adds many functionalities that make Polar Energy a modern and user-friendly tool for the user such as the introduction of cyclic connection verification to make installation easy and secure.

The connections to the power cables and to the cables of the voltages and currents are carried out via the 2.5 mm2 terminals in the back of the instrument.

For the calibration of the currents, it is necessary to use three TAs with a secondary 5 A.

It can be used on single-phase, two-phase, three-phase low and medium voltage networks. Advanced features and included analysis software make it an ideal tool for the most demanding professional needs.
