The effect of internal phase shift on power measurement

The effect of internal phase shift on power measurement
The measurement of electrical power depends on voltage, current and time. All three contribute to the total uncertainty of the measurement. Ben Kemink, Yokogawa, shows how effects can be minimised by careful power-meter design.

Accuracy levels enhanced on power analyser

Accuracy levels enhanced on power analyser
The WT3000E is an enhanced version of Yokogawa’s WT3000 precision power analyser. The specified 45 to 65Hz accuracy for the WT3000E is 0.01% of reading plus 0.03% of range. These figures are based on RMS values rather than waveform peak values. Because power ranges are the multiple of the voltage and current ranges, the actual power measurement error due to an uncertainty of 0.03% of range in a WT3000E is less than 0.01% of range for a power meter based on peak values.

Attenuation and switch modules added to optical test system

Attenuation and switch modules added to optical test system
The AQ2200 Series Multi-Application Test System (MATS) from Yokogawa has been expanded with a range of optical attenuation and switch modules for applications involving GI50 multimode optical fibre. Multi-mode optical fibre has a much larger core diameter than single-mode fibre, which simplifies connections and allows the use of lower-cost electronics such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) which operate at the 850 nm and 1300 nm wavelength.
