DR-300 Multi-Function Recorder

DR-300 Multi-Function Recorder
The DR-300 is the only tool you need to capture and diagnose power system anomalies, and meets regulatory compliances including PRC-002-2. With multiple recording modes and continuous transient oscillography, you will never miss an event. The DR-300 captures high speed transients and long term system disturbances with enough memory to give you a complete view of the system disturbance. While simple and quick to set up and diagnose a fault; it has the power to analyze complex system anomalies.

Multi-Function Capability
The DR-300 takes the place of several devices:
    • Fault and Disturbance Recorder
    • Transient Fault Recorder
    • Phasor Measurement Unit
    • Power Quality Monitor
    • Sequence of Events Recorder

Field Proven Technology - never miss an event
The core strength of AMETEK Recorders is the extensive triggering and recording capabilities to ensure you never miss an event. The DR-300 has a 64 GB solid state drive for recording high resolution data at longer durations. The flexible triggering options make it easy to capture a simple fault or uncover a complex system anomaly. Independent of any triggers, the Transient Oscillography feature provides continuous waveform recording for up to 4 days* to capture events that are too sensitive for your triggers or to extend your pre and post fault data recorded.

High Reliability
The DR-300 is a highly reliable solid state design that incorporates a low-power fan-less operation with no moving parts. Each chassis can be equipped with a redundant power supply which can operate from the same or different power source. Input modules are hot-swappable and each one has its own dedicated processor for independent monitoring. Multiple independent Ethernet ports support simultaneous connections for reliable network communications and secure data transfers.
