Measuring Power on Lighting Products
Learn how to make accurate high-frequency lighting ballast power and efficiency measurements with high-bandwidth Tektronix power analyzers.
This application note introduces the basic concepts of power measurements and defines of key terms such as: root mean square, real power, apparent power, power factor, crest factor and harmonic Distortion
The definitive guide to making standby power measurements on electrical equipment. This primer details how to meet the requirements of the IEC62301 Ed.2 standard.
|PA1000 Series||Accurate and versatile single-phase power analyzer / wattmeter for power, energy and efficiency measurements on power supplies and any product connected to the AC line.|
|PA3000 Series||0.01% basic accuracy, multi-phase power analyzer. Measure voltage and current on up to four channels. Characterize watts, VA, VAR, watt-hours and harmonics.|
|PWRVIEW PC Software||Designed for power analyzers, the PWRVIEW PC software operates over USB or LAN and can be used to set up and log power analyzer measurements. This software includes IEC62301 Ed.2 compliance reporting and a virtual instrument so you can try it without an instrument connected.|
