N4L PPA1500 series power analyzer

The (Newtons4th) N4L PPA1500 series power analyzer are small manageable power analyzers with impressive specifications

To name a few specifications N4L PPA1500 series power analyzer: a bandwidth of 10mHz to 1MHz, a voltage range from 1Vpk to 2500Vhp (1000Vrms) and through the built-in shunt a current range from 100mA to 300Apk (20Arms) or 300mAh to 1000Apk (30Arms), depending on the model of your choice. All PPA models come with an external shunt input per channel, for when you need to measure higher currents. External shunts and current clamps are also available as accessories.

In addition to the power analyzer function, the N4L PPA1500 also includes a True RMS Voltmeter, harmonic analyzer with Bar graph and oscilloscope feature. Particularly useful should you also want to explore the wave form of voltage and current.

Model series of the N4L PPA1500 series power analyzer:

  • PPA1510, 1 channel
  • PPA1520, 2 channels
  • PPA1530, 3 channels
  • PPA1510-HC, 1 channels high current
  • PPA1520-HC, 2 channels high current
  • PPA1530-HC, 3 channels high current


A number of unique features of all N4L Power Analyzers:

  • The internal current point. In order to measure such a range of current correctly (100mA to 300Apk in 8 ranges with a frequency range of 10mHz-1MHz), most suppliers use 2 shunts instead of one. However, the disadvantage of this is that you need to change connections and the extra risk of blowing up the small shunt.
  • Another advantage of Newtons4th power analyzers is the No Gap measurements. N4L uses a Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) technique instead of FFT. It analyzes the input signals in real time, so you don’t miss events in your calculations.
  • A third unique feature is the accuracy of the phase measurement, which is 0.01deg + (0.01thg×kHz). Especially in power calculation (W) for inductive or capacitive loads, this is of great importance with regard to measurement errors.
  • Standard applications such as standby power measurements, inrush current and ballast measurements for lighting can easily be set using the application settings
