B&K Precision Launches Dedicated Power Meter

Accurately measure the power a device consumes or produces

YORBA LINDA, CA, December 8, 2017 -- B&K Precision, a leading designer and manufacturer of reliable, cost-effective test and measurement instruments, today announced the addition of the bench power meter model 5335B.

The 5335B is a compact, single-phase AC and DC power meter designed for measuring power produced or consumed, and analyzing power quality parameters quickly and accurately. The bright 4.3 inch color display supports simultaneous measurement of up to 12 parameters while the oscilloscope function provides quick view of the measured waveforms. The meter supports a wide range of applications with power measurements up to 600 Vrms and 20 Arms, with a bandwidth up to 100 kHz.

Other advanced features include a bar graph display for harmonic analysis and integration function with automatic range switching for optimal measurement accuracy under fluctuating power conditions. An optional external current sensor can be used to enable power calculations on devices that exceed the 20 Arms limit.

The optional breakout box TLBB53 simplifies the AC line connection between the power meter and DUT by eliminating the process of cutting the power cord and stripping wires to connect to the power meter. This breakout box supports easy plug-in connection and uses a universal socket that accommodates most plugs used worldwide.
