Show Us The Data

The performance claims of 3DFS Technology have been met with some skepticism, so as a teaser, here is some data of a North Carolina 3 phase facility’s electrical network at the point in the time (05:45) when the Vector Q2 was turned into its correction mode. The data provided was gathered by a Tektronix PA4000 power analyzer – overseen and verified by a Tektronix senior field Engineer and shows the readings as the 3DFS device went to work. The data speaks for itself and will hopefully spark more skepticism due its mesmerizing content.

 

This is a thermal image of the Vector Q2 connected in parallel to the main breaker panel – obtained with Fluke Ti400.

    I guess I am not the only one that thinks the Tektronic interface looks like the star trek one.. LoL You guys are doing amazing things 🙂

    Although your product seemed like another capacitor and filter device, after seeing the data and looking at the size of the Vector Q2 I am convinced that you are on to something here. Just sent you a job application

    Dear 3DFS Team
    I believe you show a very good performance; the savings are full 2,11% ! This is amazing.

      James, as for the savings in Watts, yes you are correct somewhere around 2% at a 2.3kW load. The VectorQ2 consumes around 120W, with higher loads the savings would be much more substantial, could you get better savings with a capacitor or harmonics filter?

      Cheers,
      Jerome

    I think that the power quality and reliability improvements are much more important than energy savings. Managing the operations in a data center, having stable power when switching from generator back to utility power, just the stability that the Vector Q2 would provide is worth its weight in gold twice over.

    Looks like the instrument is a variation on the old voltech power analyzer, very reliable instrument. I have worked in the power quality industry for over a decade and have never been more impressed than I am with 3DFS.
