280x Series Single- and Two-Channel Power Analyzers
With an extended measurement range from micro-amps to hundreds of amps and millivolts to kilovolts, the 2801 & 2802 are the ideal analyzers for standby power or Energy Star testing. In addition to numerical results, the 2801 & 2802 captures waveforms with true 512-point precision. Results and waveforms can be displayed, read via communication ports or sent directly at full resolution to a USB printer. Power and amplitude measurements with an accuracy of <0.1% are automatically synchronized to the fundamental frequency. Peak, RMS, rectified and DC measurements of voltage, current and power are provided including continuous, inrush, startup and history modes, plus an integration mode for W-Hr, A-Hr, VA-Hr as well as integrated average power. (Channels can be operated synchronously or independently on the 2802). The 2801 and 2802 also provide waveform peak and glitch capture modes.
