Multi-Phase Power Analyzer for High-Efficiency Test Applications

Tektronix introduced the PA3000, a 1- to 4-channel AC/DC power analyzer optimized for testing today's single- and multi-phase, high efficiency AC-DC and DC-AC power supply designs. The PA3000 is the industry's first multi-channel power analyzer with 10 milliwatt standby power measurement capabilities and a 1MHz bandwidth with mid-range pricing.

With power efficiency gaining center stage as a design criteria, electronics designers are under pressure to ensure product designs meet new Level VI efficiency standards and IEC 62301 standby power requirements. In addition, they often are required to meet other energy consumption standards such as CEC, Energy Star, and more. Meeting efficiency standards and time-to-market requirements means that power analyzers should be standard on every engineer's bench. With its combination of high-end features at a breakthrough price, the PA3000 makes this possible.

Suitable for a broad range of R&D and validation applications, the PA3000 supports testing to Level VI efficiency standards for external AC/DC power supplies coupled with dedicated energy consumption testing in integration mode for standards like Energy Star and CEC. It also offers a complete solution for full compliance testing to IEC 62301 standby power requirements. The instrument's high 1 MHz bandwidth supports the LED module energy certification requirements of CQC-3146, as well as harmonic analysis on wireless chargers with KHz level fundamental frequencies on the transmitter and receiver.

To support a wide range of applications, the PA300 includes more than 50 standard measurement functions, including harmonics, frequency, and star-delta computation and has multiple analog and digital inputs for sensor data such as thermocouples, speed sensors, and torque sensors. Built-in ±15 V supplies for external transducers support high current applications.
