Calibration

PCS-1000I high precision AC and DC shunt meter can simultaneously measure current and voltage with the maximum 6 1/2 measurement resolution. 

GW Instek rolls out the new PCS-1000I isolated output high precision current shunt meter, which inherits the simultaneous voltage and current measurement function of PCS-1000. PCS-1000I adopts five sets of independent shunt resistors to provide five current measurement levels, including300A,30A,3A, 300mA, and 30mA to meet the requirements of different current level measurements. Internally, PCS-1000I utilizes two sets of 24bits ADCs and low temperature coefficient electronic components to mainly focus on the current measurement of power supply devices. High precision PCS-1000I can be used in adjusting and calibrating instruments. Additionally, temperature variation will not cause PCS-1000I to yield any measurement errors.  PCS-1000I can automatically select optimal measurement level with the maximum resolution so as to replace manual selection to save operational time.

PCS-1000I provides a BNC output, which can connect with an oscilloscope to directly observe current waveform variation without using a current probe.  General oscilloscopes do not have isolated channels and their input and output are structured at a common point, therefore, the output load will likely result in measurement errors.  PCS-1000I’s isolated current output design can prevent measurement errors from an oscilloscope with non-isolated outputs.  PCS-1000I, a high precision AC/DC current shunt meter, not only provides USB and GPIB communications interfaces for users to remotely control the instrument but also conducts simultaneous voltage and current measurements. The SCPI communications commands of PCS-1000I allow users to remotely control PCS-1000I via a PC to operate measurement data readbacks.

PCS-1000I will replace non-isolated output PCS-1000 models, which will be discontinued.
