According to Yokogawa the WT1800E power analyser was developed to provide engineers with accurate and reliable power measurements for applications such as plug-in hybrid/electric vehicle power management, storage, energy recovery, generation and traction systems, and the manufacture of energy efficient devices and electrical components.

It features a motor evaluation function that allows users to go beyond electrical parameters and measure mechanical values such as torque, rotation speed, slip electrical angle, motor efficiency etc., claims the company.

In addition, the WT1800E’s high frequency capabilities allow it to be used for analysis of automotive lighting applications and other electronic systems.
