A line of power analyzers from Vitrek is now equipped with the built-in capability to conduct compliance testing to a number of key environmental performance standards. The PA900 Precision Multi-channel Harmonic Power Analyzer can be set up to analyze the power output or consumption of the device under test and automatically display the results. This is a significant advance over other power analyzers that require PC-based software to conduct such analysis.
The PA900’s test results are selectable for the following environmental/performance standards:
EN60034-2-1:2014 (motor drives)
EN50564:2011 (standby power)
EN61000-3-2 and 3-12 and 4-7 (harmonics emissions)
RTCA DO-160E/F/G (avionics)
Airbus ABD0100.1.8 (A380) and ABD0184.108.40.206 (A350)
The PA900 sets the standard for affordable graphical power analyzers. It integrates a high-accuracy, wideband waveform digitizer with advanced computational capability, a large high-resolution display and a full-color touchscreen user interface. The unit’s intuitive touchscreen operation – with built-in data history, scope mode and waveform zoom – allows users to explore many aspects of power measurement in greater detail than traditional power analyzers.
The PA900 delivers waveform visualization and measurement results necessary to validate the performance of power critical designs, such as LED lighting, solar power inverters, electric vehicles and aviation power distribution. Its Virtual Power Analyzer function facilitates energy-efficiency measurements, while its 0.03% basic accuracy and (up to) 5MHz bandwidth provide world-class performance. In addition, the PA900 now includes the capability of measuring up to 500th harmonics and multi-unit linking for as many as 12-channel applications.
Price: $2,490 (single channel, standard performance) – $6,375 (four channel, high-accuracy)
Delivery: Stock to 2 weeks (ARO)
