Is the DA Output Terminal Connected to the Case of the WT Series Power Analyzer?

The WT3000 D/A output terminal is electrically isolated from the case. For all other models, the D/A output terminal is connected to the case. ...

Why is the Peak Value and Crest Factor Unstable?

The peak value and crest factor may be unstable if they have not been captured accurately. If the peak value is not stable, neither will the crest factor be stable. The cause is the difficulty in capturing the narrow spi...
