Aspen adds Itech to switch mode power supply portfolio
Aspen Electronics has become the new source for Itech Electronic, a global manufacturer of test solutions for power electronic instruments. Itech’s products are used in testing power supplies, household appliances, uninterruptible power supplies, electronics and motors.
The IT9121 power analyser is one of the company’s ‘star’ products, says Aspen, adding that it combines high quality with performance.
The IT9121 power analyser can measure a variety of parameters, including voltage, current, power, frequency and harmonics. It has a maximum rated input of 600V rms and 20A rms with measurement bandwidth of 100kHz. The basic voltage and current accuracy is 0.1 per cent. The standard configuration includes USB, GPIB, RS232 and LAN communication interfaces in addition to interfaces for USB-based peripheral devices. Users can save the measured parameters via an external storage medium.
The IT9121 power meter can measure all AC and DC parameters, including the active power, reactive power, apparent power, power factor, voltage, current, frequency and phase difference. It also has a bandwidth of 100kHz, which can realise high-speed harmonic measurement within a wider dynamic range. In addition, the IT9121 can be used for measurement of multiple harmonics – 50 harmonics of the fundamental frequency can be measured.
The special 5mA range makes direct testing in accordance with EN50564 possible, without the need for an external transducer. This, says Aspen, is particularly suitable for the power test of high-power electrical household appliances. The harmonic and power consumption measurements play an important part in research, development and production of such appliances as the energy consumption and safety of these appliances are key factors when it comes to making a purchasing decision.
