Product Description

The PM3000ACE is the high-precision anchor of the Voltech power analyzer range.
Deceptively easy-to-use and always providing reliable and stable measurements, the PM3000ACE is feature-packed with measurement algorithms gained from years of experience with our customer’s applications.

  • Intuitive front-panel or Windows software operation
  • High 0.05% basic accuracy
  • Wide bandwidth measurements, DC and 0.1Hz to 1MHz
  • Measures W, V, A, VA, Var, power factor, Cos, Vpk, Apk, crest factors, frequency and inrush current
  • Harmonics of V, A (incl. phase) and W to the 99th. THD
  • Integrator for W-hr, VA-hr, A-hr, VA-hr, average and target PF
  • Crest factors up to 20
  • Accurate on distorted waveforms and at low power factors
  • VPAS PC software for set-up, data storage and handling
  • All interfaces fitted as standard
  • All instruments supplied with test leads, user manual and certificate of calibration and conformance traceable to international standards
  • Range of accessories includes current clamps and transformers, PS1000 switch for inrush measurements and Ballast CT for electronic ballast testing
  • Unique frequency detection techniques to determine the frequency of the applied voltage and current. The PM3000ACE does NOT use simple zero-crossing techniques which provide inaccurate results on noisy and distorted waveforms
  • Simple calculation of watts and rms volts and amps according to classical textbook definitions. Provides accurate results when the waveform is not a sinusoid. Accurate with crest factors up to 20
  • Discrete Fourier Transform determines harmonics up to the 100th. The PM3000ACE does NOT use fast fourier (FFT) algorithms. FFTs are prone to errors that must be corrected using windowing techniques
  • Special PWM motor-drive and power transformer test modes
  • 4mm safety connectors for direct input of voltage and current
  • Range of external current transformers and other transducers connect easily to the analyzer
  • Torque and speed inputs for the measurement of mechanical power on motors and generators
  • IEEE488 (GPIB) and RS232 for full measurement set-up and recording
