Dent Instruments ELITEpro Portable Power Datalogger

Sorry, this product is discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. Please call 1-877-766-5412 to find a suitable replacement.Dent Instruments ELITEpro SP Recording Power Meter is a suggested replacement model.


The ELITEpro is our best selling portable power monitor and electricity datalogger. It's #1 because of versatility and price.

The ELITEpro Recording Poly-Phase Power Meter measures, logs and analyzes electrical loads to manage your energy usage and is your complete solution to pinpoint electric usage and quantify consumption by measuring, storing, and analyzing parameters on each phase at intervals of your choice from 3 seconds to 24 hours.

The ELITEpro also offers some power quality features such as the ability to view voltage, current, and power waveforms. The ELITEpro can be mounted anywhere, connected at the panel or at the device, anywhere you can isolate the different lines from each other. A wall transformer is included where power is available - use the 3 yr lithium ion battery (included) where it isn't.

ELITEpro will handle any standard type of 60/50Hz power system up to 6500A and 600V (both AC and DC), including single phase & three phase - 3 or 4 wire, delta or wye.

NB: The ELITEpro needs one copy of our Site-License, multi-use software called ELOG2009. It is not included with the stand-alone unit but is included in the bundles. It is available as an option. If this is your first ELITEpro purchase, you will require one copy. We recommend either the RS232 Serial Communications Kit for ELITEpro or the USB Communications Kit for ELITEpro. A Windows-based computer is required to run ELOG2009 software and is not compatible with MAC-OS at this time.

Although not a true power quality analzyer, the ELITEpro can also do spot-check captures of waveforms and harmonics. (For power quality analyzers, see PQMeterStore.com)

Typical applications may include:

  • Load Profiling and trending for forecasting energy use.
  • Sub-metering for accurate accountability to tenants, process lines, departments or entire buildings with kWh (usage), kW (demand) with peak data and time, real-time load in kW, per phase voltage and amperage display.
  • Interval Data Recording for data sampling, recording and reporting.
  • Measurement & Verification where baseline studies are required prior to energy efficiency renovations or upgrades then followed with a verification study to measure results.
  • Energy Audits and Energy Surveys enabling end users to determine demand profiles and manage energy costs and consumption.
  • Demand & Power Metering when doing performance contracting and looking at the physical characteristics of delivered electricity.

Typical energy load applications:

  • Building service entrance,
  • Main or distribution panels,
  • Heat pumps,
  • Fans,
  • Motors (VFD & VSD)
  • Lighting loads,
  • Chillers,
  • HVAC,
  • Arc furnaces,
  • Generators,
  • Compressors,
  • Elevators and escalators.

 In addition, there are a number of options that increase versatility:

  • Current transformers - dozens of options of split-core, clamp-on and flexible CT
  • Extended memory - for 4x longer monitoring capability
  • Ethernet port or dial-up modem - for remote access, saving you time

Save money and time by ordering a complete bundle that includes the standard logger, plus software, 3x current transformers and hard carry case. Details are available here:
