Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
Yokogawa is the world’s leading manufacturer of power analyzers, devices that measure electrical power 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 in inverters, motor drives, lighting, home appliances, office equipment, power supplies, industrial machinery and other devices. Power analyzers also enable engineers to minimize energy loss in power electronics such as inverters, motors, lighting circuits, and power supplies.
Data acquisition (DAQ) is the measurement, recording, analyzing, and presentation of real world phenomena. It includes electrical measurements such as voltage, current, power as well as measurements through sensors and transducers including temperature, pressure, strain, vibration, and more.
Optical test equipment or optical measuring instruments are used to measure and characterize the physical properties of light.
For general purpose standalone applications or as core components in a high speed test and measurement system, Yokogawa sources and signal generators are highly accurate and functional.
Yokogawa offers high speed optical telecommunication systems and equipment with high performance, functionality, and reliability.
