OXYGEN power options
DEWETRON is an Austrian manufacturer of high-precision measuring instruments tailored to your needs. The core of our systems is the powerful and intuitive OXYGEN software. OXYGEN is a software for data recording and analysis and offers you, with our optional power feature, a comprehensive tool for performance analysis.
Basics of OXYGEN power analysis
With OXYGEN you can turn any of your DEWETRON instruments into a full-fledged power analyzer. The only thing you need to do is to activate the OXYGEN power option. However, power analysis with OXYGEN is not limited to the simple reading and calculation of current, voltage or power. Depending on what you want to do with your measuring device, a variety of other features is available.
Basic functions of our power option are the analysis of 1- to 9-phase power systems (1P2W, 2V2A, 3P3W, 3P4W, 2x 3P3W, …), the gapless cycle-by-cycle calculation or the offline functionality of all features. You can also use the popular power group function which allows you to automatically calculate multiple power metrics, depending on which one you need.
OXYGEN’s power group feature
But OXYGEN has an even larger number of functions, which we divided into software packages. To make it easier for you to keep track of the individual software packages, we have introduced three power options: basic, advanced and expert.
OXYGEN power options
The basic power option is ideal if you are interested in basic power analysis. For example, you can use it to determine RMS and AVG of current and voltage, or to determine active, apparent and reactive power (both total and from fundamental frequency only). Determining energy and efficiency is also easy with this option. You can find out more about our power basic option in this webinar and blogpost.
Do you engage in measuring grid quality or grid compatibility? Then the advanced power option is likely right for you. It allows you to determine, for example, harmonics (according to IEC 61000-4-7), flicker (according to IEC 61000-4-15) or flicker emissions (according to IEC 61400-21). Determining mechanical power and efficiency also becomes a breeze with the power advanced option. We have also created a dedicated webinar for this software option, you can watch it here.

Do you have even higher demands on grid compatibility? The power expert option may be the perfect option for you. With power expert, rolling-calculation meets the FGW-TG3 (TR3) requirements. Unlike a “normal” calculation, which is performed once per fundamental period, rolling-calculation is performed after every millisecond. This allows you to effectively determine short-term fluctuations in measured values.
With the power expert option, it is also possible for you to perform a verification according to FGW-TG3 (TR3). This provides you with a test report that classifies the electrical properties of generator units and plants (power plants), storage facilities and their components in the medium, high and extra-high voltage grid.
Power analysis with DEWETRON
The OXYGEN power options are just one part of an extensive portfolio that DEWETRON offers. We manufacture a range of different measurement and test systems with a focus on quality, modularity and reliability. This is exactly why our systems are popular in many different industries, from automotive and energy up to aerospace.
Probably our most innovative measuring system is the PU[REC] data record. It gives you everything a modern data recorder needs in a compact housing combined with 15.6” multi-touch display. Furthermore, our DEWE2 and DEWE3 measuring systems offer you an optimum of modularity and accuracy. Not only can you choose between all-in-ones, mainframes or front-ends, you can even exchange any measuring boards by yourself.
