Power analyser handles like a scope

18 March 2015 Test & Measurement

Keysight Technologies introduced the first power analyser that combines accurate power measurements and touch-driven oscilloscope visualisation capability in a single instrument. The IntegraVision power analyser makes it easy for R&D engineers who are designing and testing electronic power conversion systems to access dynamic views of current, voltage and power so they can see, measure and prove the performance of their designs.

Engineers working on electronic power conversion systems need high-accuracy measurements to identify and characterise incremental efficiency improvements in devices such as power inverters or converters, universal power supplies, battery systems, vehicle and aircraft power systems, lighting systems/electronic ballasts and appliances.

While some of today’s power analysers offer adequate measurement accuracy, they are cumbersome to use and lack the ability to characterise power consumption under dynamic conditions. Previously, engineers needed a power analyser to make accurate measurements and an oscilloscope to visualise repetitive and single-shot events such as turn-on and occurrences of transients. Eliminating a separate oscilloscope in the measurement setup decreases test complexity and reduces configuration time.

The Keysight IntegraVision power analysers are ideal for R&D engineers who want to quickly and interactively measure AC and DC power consumption, power conversion efficiency, operational response to stimulus and common AC power parameters such as frequency, phase and harmonics – all with 0,05% basic accuracy and 16-bit resolution. The instrument enables engineers to characterise power consumption under highly dynamic conditions with 5 MSps digitising speed and 2 MHz bandwidth.

The power analyser allows engineers to address multiple test scenarios with the flexibility of wide-ranging, isolated inputs up to 1000 Vrms (Cat II). The instruments offer external sensor inputs and 2 Arms and 50 Arms direct current inputs, standard on all channels. The external sensor input supports current probes and transducers up to 10 V full scale.

The user interface of the IntegraVision power analysers is based on technology from Keysight’s InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series oscilloscope, including its 12,1” multitouch capacitive touchscreen with pinch, zoom and scroll capabilities.
