7170 Images

  • The 7170 is a fast, easy to use mains and harmonics analyser with a large and high resolution graphical display, capable of continuous real-time analysis. It is intended primarily as a dedicated harmonics and flicker analyser for compliance quality measurements, but it can also be used as a general purpose mains analyser.

    The unit is available with range of power connectors to suit different national standards. A printer interface is included for record keeping and archiving, along with both RS-232 and USB interfaces for PC connectivity.

    A Windows based sofware is supplied with the module which assists users in taking routine compliance measurements and archiving the results. It can communicate with the instrument through either an RS-232 or a USB connection.

    7171 Low Distortion 1kW Power Source Module
    To complement the 7170 a low distortion 1kW AC power source module (7171) can be fitted in the CalBench. The 7171 is an innovative, low cost, pure power source designed specifically for use with a harmonics analyser such as the 7170. It permits compliance quality measurements to EN61000–3–2 in situations where the quality of the AC supply is poor or variable.
