Wide Frequency Range
Wide Frequency Range Lets You Work on a Variety of Different Applications
- Low-frequency Equipment Low-frequency measurements starting at 0.5 Hz can be used for evaluations of cycloconverters and when a motor are started.
- Commercial Power Supplies Basic Power Accuracy: 0.1%
Power accuracy is even better than in fomer WT200/WT130 series.
- Inverters 100 kHz power frequency range
Now you can obtain more precise measurements on high-frequency equipment such as inverters.
Accuracy Is Assured Between 1% and 130%
Capture a Variety of Signal Types
|Surge Current and Maximum Load State|
This function lets you keep, on the display, voltage and current peak values, voltage and current rms values, and maximum values for active power, apparent power, and reactive power.
|Half-wave Rectification, Intermittent Control, Distortion Waves|
In addition to using DC inputs, you can obtain precise measurements of signals containing DC components, such as intermittent signals and half-wave rectification signals.
|Constantly Changing Signals|
With measurement intervals as short as 0.1 second, you can capture transient phenomena with a fine level of detail. You can also reduce the time per measurement for increased through put in production testing.
This function lets you measure fundamental wave rms values for inverter output voltages.
|Instead of taking notes, you can use the internal memory to store and recall settings and field measurement data.|

Powerful Tools for Energy Measurement
|Extended Energy Measurement Applications|
Time can be set between 1 second and 10,000 hours (416 days) in 1-second increments.
|Battery Equipment Applications|
Power and current values can be integrated separately for positive and negative polarities. Integrated values are shown with the decimal point moving according to the integrated value.
|Intermittent Control Equipment Applications|
|The power of intermittent control equipment changes significantly over time. The average active power in intermittent operations can be displayed, which is highly effective for consumed-power measurements.|

One Unit Handles Standby Low-power Measurements (WT210 only)
Wide Range of 5 mA to 20 A
The built-in 5 mA range lets you measure currents as low as 25 µA. This makes it possible to measure very low currents on such things as intermittent control equipment. The wide current range (5 mA to 20 A) means a single power meter can be used for applications such as Energy Star® measurements, to measure everything from standby-power to rated-power.
Benefit of Assured Accuracy from 1% of Rng
Assured accuracy from 1% allows measurement of widely-varying power consumption with a fixed range.

|How to Measure Electrical Power||If a product uses power, then power consumption and power quality measurements must be made as part of product design and test. These measurements are essential to optimize product design, comply with standards and provide nameplate information to customers.
This article will discuss best practices for making these measurements, starting with power measurement basics and proceeding to the types of instruments and associated components typically used to make measurements. The article will conclude with real-world examples, which apply the information imparted earlier in the article to solve practical measurement problems. Although most of us have been exposed to basic power measurement equations, a primer is helpful to summarize this information and to show how it applies to product design and test.

We use the WT210 exclusively for single-phase inline measurements and we have found them to be solid and dependable.
However; the WT230 3-phase meter has been a lifesaver. The selectable wiring scheme is indispensable for us as most of our 3-phase equipment uses the 3-phase 3-wire scheme. This has eliminated the confusion that lead to errors in testing from the 3-phase 4-wire meters we had previously used. As far as I’m aware Yokogawa is the only company offering this option in an inline meter capable of carrying a 30A load.
