Matching test tools to the application
Today, there is an increasing need to measure behaviour with electrical and physical parameters of applied power electronics, says Kelvin Hagebeuk, Yokogawa Europe
OTDR enables rapid testing of PON access networks
The AQ1210 OTDR (Optical-Time Domain Reflectometer) from Yokogawa only resembles the existing AQ1200 in appearance - internally it has been completely re-engineered to bring the features and user-friendly operation of the AQ7280 flagship OTDR to the installers and testers of Passive Optical Networks (PON) and Fibre To The Antenna (FTTA).
Hardware redesign enhances oscilloscope capabilities
electronica 2018 hosted the debut of Yokogawa’s DLM3000 Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes. They feature the look and feel and small footprint of the earlier DLM2000 Series but with a complete hardware redesign with higher measurement speed and precision plus an intuitive touchscreen display for enhanced ease of use and improved productivity.
A new platform for precision power measurement
In rapidly evolving industry sectors like renewable energy, electric vehicles and energy-efficient technologies, the need for reliability in testing to enhance safety, efficiency and performance has never been greater, says Anoop Gangadharan, Yokogawa Europe
Mixed-signal scope adds precision and productivity
The DLM3000 Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Series from Yokogawa features the “look and feel” and small footprint of the earlier DLM2000 Series but with a complete hardware redesign which brings higher measurement speed and precision plus an intuitive touchscreen display for enhanced ease of use and improved productivity.
Power analyser boasts ± 0.03% measurement accuracy
The Yokogawa WT5000 is the first of a new generation of Precision Power Analysers that offers exceptional measurement accuracy of ± 0.03% combined with stability, noise immunity and plug-in modular flexibility to meet the measurement needs of today’s developers of energy-efficient systems.
Testing tomorrow’s energy grids: taking the long view
In the rapidly evolving alternative energy sector, the need for reliability in testing to enhance safety, efficiency and performance has never been greater. This contrasts with the situation in the past, where it might have sufficed to take a short-term view on evolving standards and changing user requirements. In this article Anoop Gangadharan, Product Marketing Manager, Yokogawa Europe explores the future of energy.
Smartening up the grid: challenges for testing technologies
As the world makes the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, the impact on existing energy infrastructures is significant. New developments such as renewable energy power stations, energy-positive buildings and infrastructures mean that electricity no longer has a unidirectional flow from power stations to consumers. In addition, as local energy generation and private storage facilities increase, there are greater demands on the grid ...
CAN FD monitoring module supports higher speed testing
A CAN FD monitoring module has been introduced by Yokogawa for its ScopeCorder family of portable data-acquisition and recording instruments. The 720242 plug-in module is compatible with the DL850EV (Vehicle Edition) instrument and the DL350 ScopeCorder fitted with the /VE option.
Optical spectrum analyser production tests telecom devices
A cost-effective optical spectrum analyser optimised for testing telecom devices during and after production has been unveiled by Yokogawa. The AQ6360 is a benchtop optical spectrum analyser targeted mainly at the production testing of datacom and telecom devices such as laser diodes, optical transceivers and optical amplifiers.
IIoT service assists cloud-based device management
A new IIoT cloud-based service for the management of information on plant assets has been announced by Yokogawa Electric. Device Lifecycle Management is an information management support service for the digitised asset data of the IIoT era. The Device Lifecycle Management service allows customers to digitalise the management of all device information and helps customers to improve the efficiency of plant maintenance management and the quality of ...
Optical sensor head offers uncertainty of ±1.8%
The AQ2200-232 is a high-performance optical sensor head which joins Yokogawa’s existing family of optical power meters modules (AQ2200-215 and AQ2200-221) in the company’s modular optical test platform. The sensor head is used in conjunction with the dual-port AQ2200-202 interface module.
Dedicated instrument cuts costs of testing power meters
A dedicated, stand-alone and cost-effective calibrator that is designed to reduce the cost and complexity of calibrating power meters and analysers with accuracies up to 0.15% has been announced by Yokogawa. Unlike existing multi-function calibrators, the LS3300 provides a lower cost and easy-to-use solution with specific features for calibrating power meters.
CXPI analysis increases oscilloscope options
CXPI serial bus analysis has been added to the range of options available on Yokogawa’s DLM2000 and DLM4000 Series mixed signal oscilloscopes. CXPI – Clock Extension Peripheral Interface – is an automotive serial bus interface that is designed to provide an optimised solution in applications previously served by the established CAN and LIN bus systems, which until now have been the main interfaces used for in-vehicle communicati...
Portable ScopeCorder combines measurement and recording capabilities
Combining a general purpose oscilloscope and high-performance data acquisition recorder, the DL350 from Yokogawa can capture, display, record and analyse a wide variety of electrical and physical parameters in industry sectors including automotive, electronics, energy, transport and mechatronics.
Power measurement software provides PC connectivity
WTViewerE software provides PC connectivity for Yokogawa’s power analysers - including the WT3000E, WT1800E, WT500 and WT300E models - via Ethernet, USB, GPIB or RS232 interfaces.
