ISO17025 accredited Closed Loop Calorimeter developed to verfiy wideband Power Analyzer accuracyNovember 11, 2016
Newtons4th have collaborated with Oxford University to develop a “Closed Loop Calorimeter” that has been accredited to ISO17025 (UKAS). This calorimeter is utilized within N4L’s ISO17025 UKAS laboratory to verify the performance of the power analyzer up to 2MHz with an uncertainty level of less than 0.3%.

New 7 Phase Power Measurement Mode for the PPA3560!September 16, 2016
A new algorithm has been developed for the PPA3500 precision power analyzer which enables 7 phase power measurement utilizing only 6 wattmeters. With the new “7 Phase” mode the engineer is able to obtain true 3 phase measurements when connected in a 3 Phase 2 Wattmeter wiring configuration. Previously, only SUM parameters were able to be determined when connected in a 3 phase 2 wattmeter configuration – these restrictions no longer apply.
