World Class Accuracy & Bandwidth
Easy-to-Use Touchscreen Operation
All the Data you need at a Price you can Afford
Introducing the Vitrek PA900 Precision Harmonic Power Analyzer, a refreshingly easy-to-use high performance power analyzer that won’t break your budget. The PA900 delivers multi-channel, high-accuracy, wideband performance – to tackle the toughest energy measurement applications. Trust Vitrek to deliver world class power measurement capability at a price that is surprisingly affordable.
The new Vitrek PA900 boasts an impressive array of precision power measurement capabilities, yet its color touchscreen user interface is refreshingly easy to use. The accuracy of the PA900 is truly world class – surpassing rival instruments costing triple the price. And when it comes to speed & bandwidth – the PA900 tops the charts with 100 full precision readings per second and measurement bandwidths sufficient to handle 5 MHZ waveforms. For tackling tough power factor, low phase angle and high crest factor loads – the PA900 is unbeatable. Offering full performance for crest factors as high as 30:1 – the PA900 places the advantage of superior power measurement capability squarely in the palm of your hands or if you prefer – at the tip of your finger.
And speaking of flexibility, each of the above Channel cards is available with your choice of 3 different current input options. The D current input option uses an auto-ranging Dual Shunt system to deliver precision current measurement from as low as 0.1micro-amp resolution on the 1 amp range up to 20 amps rms on the high range. For higher current measurements, the H current input option operates from 10 micro-amp resolution up to 30 amps rms. The X input current option is designed to provide optimum compatibility with a wide range of external shunts and current transducers. Vitrek makes it easy for you to configure a harmonic power analyzer that is perfect for your application.
The power data screen, available with one touch, displays V, A, W, VA, VAR and PF data for any selected channel or group of channels known as a Virtual Power Analyzer™ (VPA). Up to three different VPAs can exist in in a single PA900. In addition to the primary data, peak readings, phase, CF and other parameters are also available. Integrated data results (WHr) can also be controlled and viewed from the power data screen. For users with unique data requirements, custom data screens can be built with a spreadsheet application and downloaded to the PA900 via interface or USB drive.
To meet advanced power harmonics requirements, the PA900 displays up to 500 harmonics even at aviation power frequencies. The chart can be set to show linear, relative linear, logarithmic or relative logarithmic amplitudes Additionally, eight harmonics can be selected for numeric display of amplitude and phase by touching the harmonic bar of interest. The user may also import harmonic limits, which
when enabled will show out of tolerance harmonics in red above the limit line.
Energy is one of our most precious resources. Design engineers are under constant pressure to increase efficiency and reduce excess product power consumption down to the last mW. Challenging programs like LED and HID lighting, solar panel energy output, efficiency testing on inverters and PWM motor drive systems on electric vehicles all require fast, precise, reliable power measurement. The unequalled performance of the Vitrek PA900 gives you the competitive advantage—the ability to accurately capture the waveforms and power data you need to squeeze the last drop of extra energy out of your project.
