    High Performance PPA3500 up to 8 Phase Power Analysis Overview

    The PPA3500 is a high accuracy 3~6 phase power analyzer able to perform reliable, accurate power analysis in a variety of applications. Dut to innovative analogue card design, the PPA3500 is packaged in a compact 2U chassis. The PPA3500 is available in 3, 4, 5 or 6 phase configurations. The PPA3500 power analyzer benefits from a full colour “Dual” TFT display, this concept employs two TFT displays within one instrument, allowing for a large widescreen display area in a 2U form factor. There is also the option to install the unit in a 19in rack providing a 2U 6 Phase solution, see accessories for more details.

    Proprietary Technology featuring the industry-renowned planar shunt technology (A shunt design topology developed by N4L) and FPGA based real-time no gap analysis techniques, the PPA3500 is able to provide groundbreaking 6 phase analysis performance. Real-Time no gap analysis ensures efficiency measurements are entirely synchronized between input and output.

    All PPA3500 units are supplied with UKAS ISO17025 certification as standard, this is performed at N4L in the UK in our accredited ISO17025 Laboratory.

    Power Analyzer PPA1500 Overview

    The PPA1500 Power Analyzer offers higher performance compared to its sibling – the PPA500 unit, the PPA1500 series ensures that N4L power analyzers provide the optimum solution in almost any power measurement application and budget. The main differences between the PPA500 and PPA1500 Power Analyzers are that the PPA1500 features a 1Mhz Bandwidth and full graphical display, this includes harmonic bar graphs and graphical data logging. The PPA1500 Power Analyzers now features sophisticated parallel digital filtering algorithms enabling the PPA1500 to be used in various Pulse Width Modulated applications.

    While being only half-rack width and 2U high, the PPA1500 is available in 1, 2 or 3 phase configurations and offers a level of performance normally found only in larger and more costly instruments. With modes such as “Inrush Current and “Standby Power”, the PPA1500 provides fast, accurate and easy measurements in challenging environments.

    The PPA1500 series analyzers now have a 6 Phase 2U Rack option in which two PPA1530 units are installed on the same rack side by side to gives the ability to perform 6 phase 0.1% accurate power measurement whilst only occupying a height of 2U in any rack.

    All PPA1500 units are supplied with UKAS ISO17025 certification as standard, this is performed at N4L in the UK in our accredited ISO17025 Laboratory.
