Fluke Calibration introduces the 6003A Three Phase Electrical Power Source, a cost-effective instrument that provides the superior accuracy and performance of three independent phases in one compact device. The 6003A is accurate enough for calibration laboratories, with specifications of plus-or-minus 0.038 percent for power and plus-or-minus 0.01 degree for phase. Its compact form factor also makes it easy to transport and maintain in manufacturing companies, electric utility meter shops, and other organizations that manufacture, maintain, and calibrate power meters, energy meters, power quality analyzers, and similar tools.
The 6003A delivers the accuracy and features found in more expensive three-phase systems. It provides three independent phases of precise voltage and current. It also sources power quality phenomena, including harmonics, interharmonics, and dip/swell variations. It includes measurement capabilities for dc voltage, dc resistance, and frequency for measuring outputs from power and energy transducers.
Because it's a single instrument, the 6003A is easier to transport to test workloads in situ, takes up less bench space, and is more cost effective to maintain than multi-piece units. Its graphical user interface enables users to set up complex harmonic signals quickly and easily. It also makes the instrument remarkably easy to learn and use, so new users become productive quickly.
Specialized capabilities can be added, including an energy option, which adds a pulse counter and pulse output; a power quality option that enables the 6003A to calibrate power quality instrumentation by generating up to 63 harmonics, an interharmonic, modulation (flicker), and dips and swells on all three channels; and a 90 A adapter with high-current leads that generates up to 90 A from a single current phase to manage high-current workloads.
