This white paper describes the PZ4000 power analyzer, a discontinued model that has been replaced by the PX8000 Precision Power Scope.
The PZ4000 was developed for power measurement and waveform observation. It features a trend display for the measurement of transient power and a span measurement function. Despite having a wide bandwidth of DC-2 MHz, which facilitates the accurate measurement of switching control waveforms or fluctuating power and a fast sampling rate of 5 MS/s, it is capable of precise measurements at an accuracy of (±0.1% of reading +0.025% of range). It can analyze wide band distorted waveforms with a maximum of 5000 harmonic analysis orders.
Measure characteristics of devices that generate, transform or consume electricity. Also called power meters or wattmeters, these devices measure parameters such as true power (watts), power factor, harmonics, and efficiency.
