Measuring Power on Lighting Products

Modern lighting, fluorescent or LED must meet demanding requirements for performance including high efficiency and low current distortion.

Tektronix power analyzers provide accurate measurements of electric power at both the input and output of electronic ballasts, enabling engineers quickly and accurately determine ballast efficiency as well as power, power factor, total harmonic distortion and harmonics of the lighting ballast input and output Features such as a color graphics display and 1-click set up help speed measurements while the included PWRVIEW PC software captures data for seamless analysis and reporting.
