The Power of One

The Power of One Integrated Test and Measurement Platform | Yokogawa Test&Measurement

Engineering groups face challenges like time synchronization issues and incompatible reporting when working with multiple instrumentation systems and data file formats, resulting in long hours, missed deadlines, and blown budgets. Instead of constantly battling these issues, why not unify your instrumentation, software, and data across your engineering teams? With The Power of One, you can.

The Power of One is not a single software package or instrument. It’s what happens when precision-focused hardware and software converge and enable engineering groups to streamline processes and work together cohesively.
 

The Power of One | What Are You Compromising | Yokogawa Test&Measurement

In the product development cycle, what a work group is willing to compromise to “just get the job done” differs by stage. Each group purchases instruments based on their particular wants, often without consideration for the other groups in the organization.

Product Development Cycle Engineering Compromises | Yokogawa Test&Measurement
What matters most to each engineering group varies when selecting hardware and software.

 
The Power of One | Cost of Compromise No Interoperability | Yokogawa Test&Measurement
 

This short-term thinking results in equipment and software that only "sort of" work with each other, leading to issues like:

  • Difficulty finding measurement correlations due to no time synchronization
  • Limited data sharing, manually combining data, and having to learn multiple software types
  • Higher test costs, product quality issues, and increased time-to-market because of no interoperability

With only so much time and money, something usually has to give. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
 

Do More With The Power of One | Yokogawa Test&Measurement

When engineering work groups unify processes and measurement data from different sources using The Power of One, they accelerate workflow to seemlessly progress from design through validation and through to production. This is all possible through IS8000, an integrated and comprehensive test and measurement software platform that incorporates IEEE-1588 timing hardware and tightly integrates timing, control, and data collection from multiple instruments.

Motor/Inverter Evaluation and Offline Simultaneous Analysis
Application Note

Ideally, it is desirable to check the power meter data while checking the waveform shape continuously. However, since a high-speed sample rate is required to correctly capture a high-speed switching signal such as an inverter that includes a carrier frequency, a large amount of high-speed sampled data cannot be transferred to a PC.

Evaluation Test of Power Conditioning System for Solar/Wind Power Generation
Application Note

The main purpose of a waveform measurement instrument is to continuously monitor a grid for a long time and capture abnormal data, but on the other hand, the developers also want to capture transient events and changes with high-speed sampling. It is difficult to perform the long-term measurement and capturing of fast abnormal events simultaneously.
