Fluke introduces new, more accurate 6100B and 6105A electrical power standards

Supplier News

Fluke Australia has introduced new, more accurate electrical power standards designed to deliver stable, precise reference power and energy for use in calibrating electrical measurement equipment. The new  6105A and 6100B electrical power standards provide the stability and accuracy required by users including national measurement institutes, instrument service and calibration firms, electronics manufacturers, power utilities and standards laboratories. 

Features of the 6100B and 6105A power standards include:

  • The Fluke 6100B power standard comfortably meets the accuracy requirements for today’s power quality testing standards
  • The 6100B power standard features improved accuracy and increased voltage channel current drive, for calibrating energy meters that take power from their voltage input
  • The 6105A power standard provides all the functionality of the 6100B, with even better accuracy to match that of the best measurement devices for sinusoidal waveforms
  • The 6105A power standard is specifically designed to provide the accuracy required to verify the performance of secondary standards such as the Radian Research RD and RM range, the Zera EPZ303 and COM 3003 and the MTE (EMH) K2006, Calport 300, SRS PRS PWS and PTS series products
  • the 6105A features 0.007 percent (66 parts per million) one-year energy accuracy for sinusoidal waveforms. Waveforms with high harmonic distortion are also delivered with similar accuracy traceable to national and international standards
  • A Microsoft Windows user interface make the 6100B and 6105A power standards simple to operate.  The interface can be accessed through a combination of front panel knobs and buttons, or by connecting the user’s own mouse and keyboards
  • Actions are viewed on the high resolution, eight-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) display.  Status information of all four phases is displayed, alongside more detailed information on current parameters being set or adjusted
  • The 6100B and 6105A power standards can also be operated using remote control.  Where multiphase systems are operated, control of the auxiliary devices is via the master unit
Choosing between a 6100B or 6105A power standards depends on the user’s accuracy requirements.  Both models meet all accuracy requirements of power quality testing to the IEC 61000-4 series of standards.  The 6100B can also be used to type test 0.1 percent to 2 percent energy meters, while the 6505A has the highest accuracy available for calibrating and type testing secondary standard energy meters and Watthour meters.

The 6100B and 6105A power standards conform to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 488.1 standard and supplemental standard IEEE 488.2.  The programming language complies with the standard commands for programmable instruments (SCPI).
