Download a PDF Copy of this App Note Data Link Device Testing The data link device under test (Figure 1) is characterized by comparing test signals that are input to the link with signals measured at the link output. Differences between these two test signals indicate a degradation by the link during transmission. [...]

PAxx Power Analyzers using External Current Sensors: Application Notes

Current Sensors use two main techniques. A current transformer divides current. So for instance a 100:1 current transformer would see an input of 10A and output 100mA. Note that this technique is only useful for AC current. When using a current transformer you can directly input the current into one of our internal shunts as [...]
