The SPC Pro 2 is our best ever 3-phase data logger. Directly descended from the original SPC Pro it combines all the qualities that made that product a market leader with a host of new features and improved performance.
All designed to help you get the job done better, quicker and easier. Based on the well-proven “3 currents, 1 voltage” hook-up, the only voltage connection it needs is a standard 13A wall socket. For surveys where mains power is not available the unit’s internal battery provides up to two weeks ‘no voltage’ logging, increasing as much as 12 weeks with the external ‘battery pack’ option. Current measurement is via fully isolated flexible hoop CTs which makes the SPCPro data logger incredibly safe to use. The unit is also very easy to set up and connect and requires no detailed knowledge of electrical systems from the operator.
LARGER MEMORY & USB STICK DOWNLOAD
The SPC Pro 2 has almost 4 times the memory of its predecessor, allowing highly accurate surveys of up to 12 weeks duration as well as hi-speed (1 second) logging of critical plant for up to 48 hours. The larger memory is more accessible too, thanks to the USB Flash Drive interface. When you want to download the logger – even on the fly – just plug in your USB memory stick and press the ‘Download’ button and all the logger’s readings are transferred to the memory stick. The data can then be processed by our PowerPackPro software whenever you wish. Just open PowerPackPro on your PC and plug in the memory stick to download it. It’s that easy! The SPC Pro 2 retains a second USB socket for direct connection to a PC but you can now download it without any cables, PCs or laptops required. Whichever way you do it, data download is fast efficient and foolproof.
NEW HANDHELD PACKAGE – MAGNETIC FEET AS STANDARD
The SPC Pro 2 is light and compact, but it’s tough. Designed for many years of professional use and incorporating all of our 30 years of experience in building portable instruments, the custom moulded hi-impact case features our standard sealed front panel overlay with no projecting buttons for increased resilience and a long trouble-free life. Magnetic feet are standard, so you can easily attach the unit to any ferrous metal surface to keep it safe and out of harm’s way. And as with all our instruments, the SPC Pro 2 is supplied in a bespoke zip case to keep everything tidy.
However, if you need something even tougher, then check out our SPC Pro 2 Enviro! The same performance, the same features, but IP66 protection and the unmatched strength of a Peli Case…

How It Works
The SPC Pro 2 is a three phase electricity data logger that needs only one voltage connection. This means that the only voltage hook up you need to make is to plug the unit into a simple wall socket. This keeps things safe and easy, whilst providing the instrument with its reference voltage and also its operating power (although it has a hefty internal battery for ‘no voltage’ surveys if required).
Combined with its dedicated software package – PowerPackPro – The SPC Pro 2 takes advantage of some of the fixed characteristics of a three phase electrical system to accurately calculate power and energy from three current measurements, but only one voltage input, which makes it suitable for non-technical personnel to use. The way it achieves this is innovative but also reliable and accurate, and has been proven across many thousands of applications. See the video tab to reveal all!
POWERPACKPRO DATA LOGGING SOFTWARE
MORE THAN JUST GRAPHS!
PowerPackPro is a lot more than just data logging software package. This one is designed so that energy managers and engineers can create effective graphs and reports instantly, save carbon, money and energy from day one, and share their results with their colleagues by email with a single click. It’s also very simple and friendly to use, and won’t have you reaching for the User Manual every time you open it!
Specifically created for the SPC Range, PowerPackPro integrates seamlessly with the all the SPC devices via a hi-speed USB connection with auto-sensing built-in. Simply plug the device (or USB memory stick from your SPC Pro 2) into the PC and the software will link to it automatically!
EASY TO USE
PowerPackPro is a ‘task oriented’ data logger software package, so even if you are not an expert in utility management it will always guide you in the right direction so that you will achieve accurate reporting first time, every time. It provides full set-up and user-control for the all the instruments allowing you to define survey periods, storage rates and download schedules as well as providing additional features such a battery condition indicator and clock set function.
RESULTS – FAST!
We realise that it’s results that matter most, so once data have been downloaded from the logger or USB stick, PowerPackPro really gets to work. All graphs are fully ‘zoomable’ in both axes, and have automatic scaling so your results are always effectively presented. X axis scrolling on zoomed graphs makes data browsing easy, and the package also features a dual Y axis function for multi-parameter charts. You can set alarm levels, and use the ‘crosshairs’ function to pinpoint specific events.
ENERGY – CARBON – COST
The data logging software automatically converts logger data to the key variables of ENERGY, CARBON & COST, using the relevant calorific value, carbon equivalent and tariff information. The integrated energy costing capability allows multiple multi-rate tariffs to be entered to convert load profiles into accurate cost profiles, as well as enabling tariff comparisons to be made with real data. The ‘Carbon Calculator’ allows instant presentation of carbon output for all fuel types using pre-loaded or user defined carbon equivalent factors.
MS OFFICE INTEGRATION
PowerPackPro integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office applications with ‘one-click’ export functions for graphs and data tables into both Word and Excel. There is even a one-click function to share both graphs and data files via email using MS Outlook! Sharing your charts with your colleagues has never been easier.
