For measurement and display of rms voltage V and current I for any wave form, plus active power P and the integral of time of P(t) (work), V(t) (surge) and I(t) (charge). The power range extends over 12 decades (from nW to kW).
The integrated electrically isolated USB port makes it possible to display and evaluate the waveforms of V(t), I(t) and P(t) their rms values, active power, apparent power and power factor (cos phi) with the supplied Windows software. * At sinusoidal input signal
** The specified accuracy applied at the end of the measuring range for DC as well as for AC with a frequency of 50 or 60 Hz and a crest factor = maximum value : effective value ≤ 2.
