The DPA 500N is a fully compliant analyzer for harmonics and flicker as per the latest IEC/EN 61000-3-2, IEC/EN 61000-3-3 and JIS C 61000-3-2 requirements. It follows the design specifications as per IEC/EN 61000-4-7:2002 and Am.1:2008 (for Class A instruments) and IEC/EN 61000-4-15:2010. Based on a real-time kernel and equipped with its own harddisk it allows to record the measuring data continuously without any gaps or overlapping. The rectangular measurement window is synchronized to each group of 10 or 12 cycles of the mains supply frequency (50Hz or 60Hz) by means of a digital PLL (Phase Lock Loop). A wide-range current input (up to 50A) avoids loss of measured data due to range switching that would occur when using different shunt resistors.

Harmonics and interharmonics are caused by modern electronic power conditioning modules. Such, mostly non-linear, modules to control loads and to reduce power consumption is the source of voltage at unwanted frequencies superposed on the supply voltage.

Voltage fluctuations caused by varying load currents may influence the luminance or the spectral distribution of lighting systems. The impression of the unsteadiness of visual sensation induced by this light stimulus is called flicker.
