Today's designers of electronic devices ranging from power supplies and lighting ballasts to microwaves and motor drives face continued pressure to develop smaller and more efficient products. This push for greater efficiency results in an ever increasing frequency of power conversion techniques and with these new techniques comes the need for power measurement instruments with much greater high frequency accuracy

PPA2530 Precision Power Analyzer

New!: PPA2600 offers up to 50Arms and Rack Mounting
With a 19" width chasis and modified rear panel design, the PPA2600 offers convenient rack mounting and the option for 50Arms direct current inputs. X details coming soon.

Responding to this growing need, N4L has combined years of experience in high frequency measurement instrumentation with innovative developments in analog and digital design to produce a new generation of class leading precision power analyzers called the PPA2500 series. In common with many advances in technology, the PPA2500 series not only excels in performance but it achieves this at an exceptionally competitive price, putting high performance power analysis within the reach of all those who need it.
