  • Comparing Three-Phase Power Measurement Instruments description

    Teledyne LeCroy’s Motor Drive Analyzer (MDA) provides three-phase power measurements comparable to a power analyzer using its eight 12-bit input channels. This brief summarizes how to correctly compare Yokogawa’s power analyzer instrument to the MDA, and to explain any differences in measurement results between the two instruments.

  • Complex Drive and Control Interaction Testing with the MDA810 Motor Drive Analyzer description

    Motor drive control system debugging often requires the ability to view control and power waveforms concurrently during dynamic events to understand cause and effect relationships, and visualize the dynamic power behaviors over time, correlated to control activity. Traditional Power Analyzers only provide a static (mean value) measurement capability, limited waveform capture, and no support for measuring control system signals. The Teledyne LeCroy MDA810 Motor Drive Analyzer provides static and dynamic power analysis with complete oscilloscope embedded control test capability and correlation of control signals to power events.

  • The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter and Danisense Current Measurement Sensor description

    The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter provides enables a third-party current measurement device to operate like a Teledyne LeCroy probe. This brief explains how to use the CA10 with a Danisense flux gate- based current measurement sensor. Each CA10 setting is described, making it easy to transfer this example to any other current sensor with a voltage output.

  • The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter and Pearson Current Sensor description

    The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter enables a third-party current measurement device to operate like a Teledyne LeCroy probe. This brief explains how to use the CA10 with a Pearson current measurement sensor. Each CA10 setting will be described, making it easy to transfer this example to any other current sensor with a voltage output.

  • The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter and Rogowski Coils description

    The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter provides the ability for a third-party current measurement device to operate like a Teledyne LeCroy probe. This brief explains how to use the CA10 with a PEM-UK Rogowski Coil. Each CA10 setting is described, making it easy to transfer this example to any other current sensor with a voltage output.

  • Using the CA10 Current Sensor Adapter With a Current Transformer description

    The CA10 Current Sensor Adapter enables a third-party current measurement device to operate like a Teledyne LeCroy probe. This brief explains how to use the CA10 with a Murata Power Solutions current transformer. Each CA10 setting will be described, making it easy to transfer this example to any other current transformer.

  • Using a Resolver Interface with the MDA810 Motor Drive Analyzer description

    Motor drives utilizing complex control systems (e.g. Vector field-oriented control or FOC) commonly use a resolver interface to provide signals to the control system for calculation of motor shaft speed, angle, and absolute position. The control system requires this information for correct calculation of the required drive output signals. A resolver interface makes debugging and validating drives and control systems much easier when a power analyzer, such as the MDA810, calculates speed, angle, and position directly from the resolver interface and displays them as waveforms.
