US-based Agilent Technologies has introduced the world’s fastest USB power sensors named Agilent U2020 X-Series. The sensor’s power and peak measurement capabilities enable engineers to measure the performance of various devices faster and with greater accuracy.
The sensor has a product measurement speed of 3500 readings per second and is equipped with the calibration and internal zero function.
These features help engineers to test high volume components used in manufacturing faster thus reducing the cost and time involved in testing. The sensor is also equipped with built in trigger functions which allow accurate triggering of signals that are close to the signal noise floor. This feature is particularly useful when complex signals with low outputs need to be detected. The trigger-out port enables data logging with video output and gives users the option to use an oscilloscope with the USB sensor to display and measure pulse signals and parameters. The sensors can operate without power meters or any external power supply and can use space efficiently.
The sensors are also portable and involve very low maintenance. The N1918A Option 100 Power Analyzer PC License Key coupled with each sensor can provide R&D engineers with powerful software to perform complex analysis like the power meter.
The Vice President of Agilent’s Basic Instruments Division, Ee Huei Sin stated that the Agilent U2020 X-series represents a major advancement with fast measurement speed in a USB power sensor. The USB sensors enable users to fulfil the growing test challenges and at the same time offer a cost-effective alternative method to regular bench solutions.
