How accurate are your Power Measurements?

Yokogawa’s European Calibration Laboratory has become the world’s first non-governmental facility to receive full ISO17025 Accreditation for power measurements at up to 100 kHz. This is in addition to its established capability for providing high-accuracy calibration at 50 Hz, especially at very low power factors (down to 0.0001) and at high currents. This makes Yokogawa the only power meter manufacturer which can directly prove the performance of its own instruments. Only a Yokogawa Calibration Certificate gives the user trust in their instrument’s measurements. Read more to understand the capability.
