Six channel precision power analyser adds accuracy and flexibility

September 13, 2016 //By Nick Flaherty
Yokogawa Europe has launched a six channel power analyser that can accommodate three-phase systems and other applications requiring multiple input channels.

The WT1800E provide engineers with accurate and reliable power measurements for energy-efficient devices and appliances, plug-in hybrid/electric vehicles, lighting, aircraft and for renewable energy technologies.  It is optimmised for comparisons of the input and output of for example; motors, inverters, actuators, energy recovery systems and generators.

The WT1800E has guaranteed power accuracy of 0.05% of reading plus 0.05% of range and is capable of harmonics analysis up to the 500th order of a 50/60 Hz fundamental frequency. Accuracy can be further improved with calibration at Yokogawa's ISO 17025 accredited lab.

“As engineers seek efficiencies from ever more sophisticated products and systems they find that they can only get them if they can make more measurements with greater accuracy," said Terry Marrinan, VP of sales and marketing at Yokogawa Europe. "When developing new products they are increasingly having to ask themselves ‘How accurate are my power measurements?’. We guarantee the power accuracies of our analysers over their full ranges and specify the effects of all the other factors such as power factor, crest factor, phase angle error, temperature range, warm-up time, stability period and common mode rejection.”
