Testing access barriers: Yokogawa’s Precision Power Scope is the key

Yokogawa PX8000 Precision Power Scope is playing a key part in production tests being carried out by Magnetic Autocontrol: a major global supplier of vehicle and pedestrian access barriers for installations as diverse as access barriers at Frankfurt Airport, the Paris Metro ticket control systems and the Kuala Lumpur Petronas Twin Towers.

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.
