PXe-PA6000 Power Meter

PXe-PA6000 Power Meter with RS-232 interface and software to analyse power consumption

The PXe-PA6000 Power Meter is a tabletop device for measuring effective power, apparent power, power factor, energy consumption, current, continuous voltage, resistance and frequency.
The power meter also offers the possibility to connect industrial current converters with a transmission relation of 100/5A or 1000/5A. Its large 93 x 52mm LCD is easy to read and provides a variety of results, including Watts, cosφ, ACV and ACA.
With the optional PXe-PA ADP current adaptor with ground wire (up to 16ACA) it can safely and quickly measure and analyse with the help of the power meter.
Measurement of current and power can be done directly with test cables that come with the device or indirectly using the clamps. The device has an RS-232 interface, and software* to analyse results and transfer data to a computer. This makes it the ideal device for any workshop or for measuring power to determine faults in devices.


  • Multi-functions : WATT, VA, Whr, COS θ ( Power factor ), ACV, ACA, DCV, DCA, Hz, ohm.
  • True AC power( Watt ) & apparent power ( VA ) measurement.
  • True rms display for ACV, ACA.
  • 0.1 W resolution ( < 1000 W ), high precision an high resolution in the low wat range, good performance for low power LED lamp watt measurement.
  • Large LCD, easy to read-out, display the Watt, Power factor, Voltage & Current value at the same time.
  • Accept different kinds current input signal as direct input, inductive clamp probe or CT ( current transformer ).
  • Auto range.
  • Built-in peak hold & data hold function.
  • Watt & VA measurement with Hi, low alarm setting capability.
  • RS-232 output interface.
  • Exclusive custom exclusive design LSI circuit, provides high accuracy, reliability and durability.
  • Built-in over input indication.
  • Power supply by batteries or AC to DC adapter.
  • Built-in low battery indicator .
  • Durable bench type housing plastic case with carrying handle.
