Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter

VISTA, Calif. - July 6, 2022 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that helps identify when it's better to pick an analyzer or a meter unit, based on the requirements you have. Some test units, like meters, are designed for speed and simplicity and to read a single electrical parameter, such as voltage, current, or power. Other test units are more elaborate and are called analyzers because they not only gauge the value of an electrical parameter, but they also enable full study of it. However, both types of units have grown in power and sophistication and today's comparisons require a bit more time and thought.

Meters and analyzers may appear remarkably similar at first, starting with the measurement of an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, or power. Both types of units work with probes, sensors, or test fixtures to determine the value of an electrical parameter for a device under test (DUT). The meter usually gives a quick measurement, often a "one-button test," while the analyzer may require more programming and setup time. But the time invested up front can lead to more details about the test results, such as not just an AC or DC voltage but how it varies with time, temperature, frequency, and change of load. When such additional information about a measured electrical parameter is needed, the tendency is to reach for an analyzer rather than a meter.

The requirements of a test application will usually determine whether a meter can provide optimum test results or if the greater capabilities of an analyzer are needed.
