PXe-LFR | Current Sensing | Current Probe for oscilloscopes
The PXe-LFR Current Probe is ideal for oscilloscopes and extending the current range of power quality and power analysis equipment – used in power electronics applications, power conversion and EV. It has a small predictable phase error, excellent for power measurements from 1Hz to 100kHz. The wide bandwidth allows accurate measurement of complex and distorted wave-shapes above the 100th harmonic.
The PXe-LFR Current Probe is very linear with current magnitude and the 10:1 switch selectable current range enables measurement over a wide dynamic range 100:1.
The PXe-LFR Current Probe is compatible with most Data Acquisition, Power analysers and Oscilloscopes, see our range of Power Analysers for further information.
The PXe-LFR current sensing current probe is a split core clip-around device, it has excellent low frequency performance, optimised to give minimal phase error from 45Hz to 20kHz and with a low noise floor. It can be used with EV, energy meters, power analysers, digital multimeters and oscilloscopes offering faithful representation of the current waveshapes, to perform a thorough power quality and energy audit. The thin, flexible coil is easy to install even where conductors have been tightly bundled or space is restricted making it easy to identify sources of power quality disturbances.
The LFR has exceptionally low phase shift between 45Hz to 20kHz enabling the measurement of the fundamental frequency and up to the 400th harmonic with excellent accuracy. The wide bandwidth allows the user to recognise and quantify some common power quality issues including THD, power factor and ground currents. The high frequency (-3dB) bandwidth of up to 1MHz is sufficient to detect some transient power quality disturbances and noise including capacitor bank switching and equipment inrush.
Leakage and Ground Currents
When used in combination with a digital multimeter the PXe-LFR can be used to detect ground and leakage currents. The flexible coil is easy to install around large individual and multiple conductors as well as conduit trunking. The LFR coil can be supplied in standard sense coil lengths up to 1m and two turns can be made around a conductor (for coil lengths >=700mm only) to double the measurement sensitivity and improve the SNR ratio.
