The PA2553 is an economical three phase power analyzer, using a six-key front panel and "soft" keys with menus to simplify the selection of measurements. In addition to numerical results, the PA2553 displays and captures waveforms allowing the user to check connection integrity with 200-point precision. These waveforms can be displayed or directly output at full resolution to a PCL printer. Power and amplitude measurements with a base accuracy of 0.1% are automatically synchronized to the fundamental frequency. Peak measurements of voltage, current and power include continuous, inrush current and history modes plus an energy accumulation mode for WHr, AHr and VAHr.
