2-Channel AC/DC Power Meter for Single-Phase to 3P3W Equipment such as Motors, Inverters, Power Conditioners, and Power Supplies

Hioki benchtop power meters and power analyzers are best in class power measuring instruments for measuring single to three-phase lines with a high degree of precision and accuracy. The PW3336 series measure power on the full range of electrical equipment, from single-phase devices such as battery-driven devices and household electronics to industrial use and three-phase electrical equipment over 2 input channels. The power meters provide coverage from DC to inverter frequencies with support for voltages up to 1000 V and direct-input currents of up to 65 A, and can also measure currents of up to 5000 A using an optional current sensor.
