Traditional power measurement instruments cannot provide accurate time measurements; oscilloscopes are not designed to measure power. The PX8000 is the world’s first precision power scope, bringing oscilloscope-style time-based measurement to the world of power measurement. It can capture voltage and current waveforms precisely, opening up applications and solutions for a huge variety of emerging power measurement problems.
The new instrument has 12-bit resolution with 100 MS/s sampling and 20MHz bandwidth. This means that the PX8000 can be used for accurate measurement of inverter pulse shapes, which can then be used to fine-tune inverter efficiency. A choice of input modules covers voltage, current and sensor measurements at voltages up to 1000 V RMS and currents up to 5 A RMS, with a basic accuracy of ±0.1%. Higher currents can be measured with external current sensors. The PX8000 can be configured to evaluate single phase and three-phase electrical systems.
The PX8000 is powered by Yokogawa’s isoPRO™ technology, which offers industry-leading isolation performance at the highest speeds. isoPRO core technology, designed with energy-saving applications in mind, delivers the performance needed to evaluate high-efficiency inverters that operate at high voltages, large currents and high frequency.
The instrument also supports the capture of power waveforms over specific periods of time and cycle-by-cycle trends through the definition of start and stop “cursors”. This is particularly useful for examining transient phenomena and in the design of periodically controlled equipment. To ensure that such equipment complies with energy standards, it is vital to measure power consumption across a range of different modes from “sleep” to full activity – and all the transient states in between.
A variety of functions including arithmetical calculations, time shifting and Fast Fourier Transforms enables users to display waveforms with offsets and skew corrections. An automatic de-skewing function eliminates offsets between current and voltage signals that may be caused by sensor or input characteristics. Users can also define their own computations via equations that combine differentials, integrals, digital filters and a wealth of other functions.
The PX8000 makes it possible to simultaneously measure the harmonic components of voltage and current waveforms as well as the harmonic distortion factor. Harmonic measurements take place in parallel with conventional voltage and current measurements. Harmonics up to the 500th order of the fundamental can be measured.
