Yokogawa WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer (Axiom Test Equipment) - RF Cafe

Yokogawa WT5000 is the world's most accurate precision power analyzer with a basic power accuracy of ±0.03%. Axiom Test Equipment image.

July 6, 2022 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, Inc., an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter," that helps identify when it's better to pick an analyzer or a meter unit, based on the requirements you have. Some test units, like meters, are designed for speed and simplicity and to read a single electrical parameter, such as voltage, current, or power. Other test units are more elaborate and are called analyzers because they not only gauge the value of an electrical parameter, but they also enable full study of it. However, both types of units have grown in power and sophistication and today's comparisons require a bit more time and thought.

Meters and analyzers may appear remarkably similar at first, starting with the measurement of an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, or power. Both types of units work with probes, sensors, or test fixtures to determine the value of an electrical parameter for a device under test (DUT). The meter usually gives a quick measurement, often a "one-button test," while the analyzer may require more programming and setup time. But the time invested up front can lead to more details about the test results, such as not just an AC or DC voltage but how it varies with time, temperature, frequency, and change of load. When such additional information about a measured electrical parameter is needed, the tendency is to reach for an analyzer rather than a meter.

The requirements of a test application will usually determine whether a meter can provide optimum test results or if the greater capabilities of an analyzer are needed.

Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter

Electronic measurements can be quick and easy, like reading a voltage between two terminals. But they can also be complex, such as studying how voltage varies with load and temperature. Making those measurements may come down to a choice between a meter and an analyzer. Some test units like meters, are designed for speed and simplicity and to read a single electrical parameter, such as voltage, current, or power. Some test units are more elaborate and are called analyzers because they not only gauge the value of an electrical parameter, but they also enable full study of it. At one time, comparing a meter to an analyzer was like a voltmeter to a vector network analyzer—it was no contest. But both types of units have grown in power and sophistication and today's comparisons require a bit more time and thought.

Meters and analyzers may appear remarkably similar at first, starting with the measurement of an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, or power.

When such additional information about a measured electrical parameter is needed, the tendency is to reach for an analyzer rather than a meter.

Weighing the Differences

The first, noticeable difference between test meters and analyzers is in size: meters are often smaller than analyzers with simpler controls, while an analyzer may occupy several spaces in a rack-mount cabinet. The smaller size of modern test meters can be deceiving in terms of capability, however. A great deal of measurement power with high accuracy can be packed into an easy-to-use benchtop unit such as the Yokogawa WT310E digital power meter. It runs on standard AC power and is compact and rugged enough to be added to almost any test site. It offers the operating simplicity of a meter but the power measurement accuracy of an analyzer, at typically ±0.15%, and has been used for single-measurement scrutiny during R&D and quality assurance (QA) as well as the repetitive testing for production measurements.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
