N4L PPA4500 series power analyzer

The (Newtons4th) N4L PPA4500 series Power Analyzer are power analyzers with impressive specifications. To name a few specifications: a basic accuracy of 0.03%, a bandwidth up to 2MHz, a voltage range from 1Vpk to 3000Vhp (1000Vrms) and a current range through the built-in shunt from 10mA to 30Apk (10Arms), 100mA to 300Apk (30Ahms) or, depending on the model chosen, 300mApk to 1000Apk (50Ahms).

In addition to the power analyzer function, the PPA4500 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.

Through a Master/Slave arrangement it is also possible to measure six channels synchronously.

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
