The KPM1000 Digital Power Meter is a single-phase power measuring instrument that applies to the wide range of power measurements, from very low power during standby mode to high power during operation mode. It has a minimum power range of 750mW, with resolution of 0.01mW, and the basic accuracy of 0.1% of reading with guaranteed accuracy extending from 1% of the range while it realizes a wide dynamic range.
In recent years, eco-design regulations have been actively implemented in many countries, starting with Europe’s ErP Directive and including the United States’ Energy Star and Japan’s Top Runner Program. These regulations are being utilized by companies in their efforts to act against environmental problems and differentiate their products. Through ErP Directive Lot 6, the standby power (off mode and standby mode power consumption) of household electrical appliances and OA electronic equipment is regulated and the preparation of a declaration of conformity is required by CE marking. This requirement regulates the standby power to become 1W or less; and starting in 2013, the regulation will be strictly reduced to 0.5W or less. The KPM1000 can accurately measure the standby power even less than 0.5W.
The KPM1000 complies with IEC62301 (the measurement of standby and off mode power in household and office electrical and electronic equipment products) standards, and it is capable to perform the standby power measurements required by ErP Directive Lot 6 and other regulations. System upgrades are also possible. Because of its size, weight, and various type of optional interface (some are factory options), the KPM1000 can be widely used as a beach-top instrument for measuring equipment power and also as a part of component of the test system.
