Energy efficiency of any single-phase product
Bright graphics display
The Tektronix PA1000 is your best choice for making precision power
measurements on single-phase power supplies and all types of products
connected to the AC line. Whether you need to test for compliance with
energy-usage regulations such as Energy Star™, or simply need to
characterize your product's overall power-conversion performance and
efficiency, you will find the PA1000 offers the most modern and complete
test solution with performance and features unmatched by other singlephase analyzers.
The color graphics display on the PA1000 is unmatched among singlephase power analyzers. It provides intuitive readout of not only
measurement values, but also harmonic bar charts, waveform display,
energy integration plots and more. Setup of the PA1000 for your particular
application is also easy and flexible, using the menu-driven interface and
soft keys.

Application-specific test modes
Standard harmonics analysis
Some applications require special instrument settings to ensure proper
measurements. The PA1000 simplifies setup for these applications by
automatically choosing instrument settings and parameters that are
optimized for each type of measurement application, resulting in more
reliable measurement results with less opportunity for user setup error.
The PA1000 features harmonics analysis to the 50th harmonic as a
standard feature. Harmonics, THD and related measurements can all be
analyzed simultaneously with other power parameters.

Selection of application-specific test modes
Ballast mode - Synchronizes measurements for highly modulated
electronic ballast waveforms. In modern electronic lighting ballasts, it is
often difficult to make accurate measurements because the output signals
are high frequency waveforms that are heavily modulated by the power
frequency. Ballast mode provides a way of locking the measurement period
to the power frequency.
Standby power mode - Driven by consumer demand and energy
efficiency regulations (such as ENERGY STAR), there is an everincreasing need to measure power consumption of products while they are
in standby mode. One of the most widely used standards for measurement
is IEC 62301. Part of this standard requires the measurement of power
over a prolonged period of time without missing any short duration power
events. The PA1000 standby power mode provides continuous sampling of
voltage and current to produce an accurate Watts measurement over the
user specified period.
Inrush mode - For measuring the peak current during any event. Typically
this is used to measure the peak current when a product is first switched
Integrator mode - Used to provide measurements for determining energy
consumption (Watt-hours, Ampere-hours, etc.).
Standard communication ports
The PA1000 comes standard with USB, Ethernet and GPIB communication
ports, plus a front-mounted USB port for data logging to a flash drive.
