Complete power consumption analysis
Most of today's AC-powered electronics and electro-mechanical products have government or consumer efficiency regulations they must meet. The PA1000 simplifies the process of proving that designs meet these requirements by offering a complete bench-top solution for single phase power consumption analysis. Use the standard front-panel input jacks and optional breakout box to simplify connections to the device under test, then analyze and document the results with the free PWRVIEW software.
Easily and accurately measure harmonic performance, standby power, and more with the PA1000, optional breakout box, and free PWRVIEW software
The color graphics display on the PA1000 provides intuitive readout of measured values, harmonic bar charts, waveforms, energy integration plots, and more. Setup is easy using the menu-driven interface and soft keys.
Full color waveform display
Harmonic bar chart display mode
The PA1000 features harmonics analysis to the 50th order as a standard feature. Harmonics, THD, and related measurements can all be analyzed simultaneously with other power parameters.
The PA1000's free PWRVIEW software enables:
- Viewing measurement data and system uncertainty in real-time, including waveforms, trend plots, and more.
- Creating and applying limits you define for simplified pass/fail testing of any parameter, including those based on user-defined math functions.
- Automating instrument setup, data collection, and report generation for key applications with just a few clicks using wizard-driven interfaces.
- Communicating with multiple PA1000 instruments for calculation of power efficiency and other parameters.
- IEC 61000-3-2 / 4-7 Current harmonics, pre-compliance testing.
- IEC 62301 / EN 50564 Standby power, full-compliance testing.
IEC 61000-3-2 current harmonic testing
IEC 62301 Standby power test with real time uncertainty and stability measurements
PWRVIEW software can automatically generate formatted test reports for IEC 61000-3-2 and 4-7 harmonics (pre-compliance) or IEC 62301 standby power (full compliance). These test reports include pass/fail results, data tables, graphs, and more… everything necessary to prove design performance and ensure a successful result in the compliance test lab.

Zext is the external shunt impedance used and must be less than or equal to 10 Ohms.
If no frequency is measured, then the signal is considered DC for the purpose of accuracy.
F is the frequency measured in kHz. In the case of harmonics, F is the harmonic frequency.
Specifications are valid from 1 to 100% of range in low bandwidth and after a manual zero has been performed. Values below 1% are typical.
In high bandwidth, specifications are valid when the signal is greater than 10% of the range.
Harmonic specifications are always valid when the harmonic is greater than 2% of the range.
Measurement conditions during calibration: Instrument default settings unless otherwise stated, sine waves applied to V and I inputs, 30 min warm up, ambient temperature 23 °C ±5 °C.

BB1000-NA breakout box
The Tektronix breakout box provides an easy way to make wiring connections between your device under test and the Tektronix power analyzer. Your device power cord plugs directly into the outlet on the breakout box (choose the version that best matches the connector style for your geography).
Connection to the power analyzer is then simple, using the standard input lead set with 4 mm safety banana connectors that are provided as a standard accessory with the power analyzer.
