This white paper describes the PZ4000 power analyzer, a discontinued model that has been replaced by the PX8000 Precision Power Scope.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.
The PX8000 is the world's first precision power scope, bringing oscilloscope-style time-based measurement to the world of power analyzers. With up to four channels, it can perform standard multi-phase power measurements. These measurements exist alongside oscilloscope-specific features such as cursor-based specific time period measurements to enable analysis of waveforms with transient components.
A Digital Power Analyzer is an instrument for research & development, design validation, and manufacturing test used to accurately measure electrical power characteristics.
