Amersfoort The Netherlands: Yokogawa Europe has teamed-up with Hitec Power Protection to develop a range of high-current power measurement solutions combining Yokogawa's family of power analysers with Hitec's zero-flux range of DC current-transformer based sensors.
When used in conjunction with an instrument such as Yokogawa's WT3000 precision power analyser, the Hitec sensors allow currents of several hundred or even thousands of amps to be measured accurately. They also allow precision DC and AC measurements to be carried out simultaneously.
"There is an increasing demand for accurate high-current power measurements from areas such as the high-power transformer industry and high-voltage DC power transmission", explained Terry Marrinan, sales and marketing director for Europe & Africa with Yokogawa's Test & Measurement Business Unit. "By combining our market-leading power meters with Hitec's advanced current sensing technology, we are able to offer customers in these sectors a total solution to all their measurement requirements," added Marrinan.
