Power testing integrates an accurate wideband waveform digitizer with computational capability, high-resolution display, and a touchscreen interface.

POWAY, Calif. – Vitrek Corp. in Poway, Calif., is introducing the PA920 series high-accuracy power analyzer to deliver waveform visualization and measurement results to validate the performance of aviation power distribution, electric vehicles, and solar power inverters.

The power electronics test and measurement device offers 0.024 percent basic accuracy and 5 MHz bandwidth. It integrates an accurate wideband waveform digitizer with advanced computational capability, a large high-resolution display, and a touchscreen user interface.

The multi-channel PA920 offers 0.024 percent power measurement accuracy on all of its one to four channel cards, VPA architecture, 100 full precision readings per second, and measurement bandwidths sufficient to handle 5 MHz signals.

The unit's touchscreen operation has built-in data history, scope mode, and waveform zoom to enable users to explore aspects of power measurement in great detail.

The PA920 can measure and display to the 500th harmonic -- even at aircraft frequencies -- and multi-unit linking for complex efficiency and synchronous measurement applications.

Integrated routines facilitate compliance testing to a selection a performance standards including: 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); Boeing 787B3-0147; Airbus ABD0100.1.8 (A380); and ABD0100.1.8.1.
