Vitrek’s High Performance Power Analyzer provides high bandwidth to 500kHz and typical 0.05% accuracy. The measurement channels can be configured independently (asynchronous or synchronous) allowing the instrument to be setup for your specific needs.

2503AH Power Analyzers are perfect for motor, lighting, power conversion and appliance test and development applications.

The 2503AH Analyzers measure power, voltage, and current up to 500 kHz with premier precision. Available parameters include V, A, W, Power Factor, Crest Factor, K Factor, THD, Harmonics, Phase, VA, VAR, W.Hr, Triplens, Impedance, Inrush, Mean-Peak Values, Efficiency- Loss, etc.

Vitrek power analysis instruments have set the standard for production testing. Independent channel control and unparalleled flexibility and speed have made the 2503AH-3CH the instrument of choice in 3-phase power analysis. The 2503AH-1CH/2CH offers cost effective solutions for single or two-phase application such as power supply and appliance testing.
