M1001 Series Digital Power Analyzers

Digital Power Analyzer

The M1001 Series from Adaptive Power Systems is a cost-effective harmonic power analyzer that is easy to use and provides excellent features.Designed using state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processing, this power analyzer supports gap-less measurement of voltage and current at sampling rates up to 409.6kHz. Multiple voltage and current ranges allow for optimal resolution and accuracy when making measurements providing support for a wide range of power test applications.

Unique test modes not found in run of the mill power analyzers in this price range include automated current inrush measurement using programmable On and Off phase angle settings thanks to an internal electronic switch. A minimum power measurements resolution of 0.1 picoWatt and 0.03W standby power integration mode support product testing for compliance with ENERGY STAR / IEC62301 standards.

Inrush Current Measurements

The internal electronic switch allows precise control over the voltage turn-on and turn-off phase angle allowing for the measurement of inrush current under various start phase angle conditions. Finding an EUT’s worst case inrush current is made easy and fast.

Product Burn-in Data Logging

Data Logging is useful for recording test data or product burn-in runs. This mode allows recording of Vrms. Irms. Watt, PF, VTHD and ITHD to a comma delimited file which is easily imported into an Excel spreadsheet. Up to 256 recordings can be stored in internal memory.

Power On/Off Product Endurance Testing

Power On/Off cycling is used to turn-on behavior and turn-off behavior of a unit under test. This continuous power cycling of product under development or test can pinpoint design issues or quality issues by stressing components.
