Harmonics and flicker analyzers detect and monitor the presence of harmonic and flicker transients. Both flicker and harmonics are electrical disturbances that interfere with power supplies. Fluctuating currents can interact with mains impedance, which creates small variations in mains supply voltage. These variations impact light intensity of an incandescent bulb, creating flicker. Harmonics are the result of distortion in the power supply, which creates loads that draw non sinusoidal current. Left untreated, harmonics can cause cable and transformer overheating. Flicker and harmonics test solutions enable you to identify and resolve issues created by these electrical disturbances.
ATEC offers affordable rental rates for harmonics and flicker test equipment from leading manufacturers like CA Instruments, EM Test, Yokogawa, and Teseq.
