1-Phase Power Meter PCE-PA6000 with RS-232 interface and software to analyse power consumption

The PCE-PA6000 ammeter is a tabletop device for measuring effective power, apparent power, power factor, energy consumption, current, continuous voltage, resistance and frequency. The power meter also offers the possibility to connect industrial current converters with a transmission relation of 100/5A or 1000/5A. Its large 93 x 52mm LCD is easy to read and provides a variety of results, including Watts, cos φ, ACV and ACA. With the optional PCE-PA ADP current adaptor with ground wire (up to 16ACA) it can safely and quickly measure and analyse with the help of the ammeter.


Measurement of current and power can be done directly with test cables that come with the device or indirectly using the clamps. The device has an RS-232 interface, and software* to analyse results and transfer data to a computer. This makes it the ideal device for any workshop or for measuring power to determine faults in devices.

Examples of use
In the following image there is a PCE-PA 6000 being used to repair a computer. Using the current adaptor, it can quickly take measurements of consumption and measurements of power without the need to use too many cables. the PCE-PA 6000 power meter used n repairing a computer
the PCE-PA 6000 power meter with the PCE-PA-ADP current adaptor Here is an image of the power meter's large LCD that can show four different readings simultaneously. The display mode depends on the function setting.
It can also show readings taken by the current adaptor. It just needs to be connected to the device with the grounding wire of the adaptor.
In this instance, the device is being used to test the thermal value of an electronic thermal ventilator once repaired with our PCE-PA 6000 power meter. The usefulness of the current adaptor can be appreciated here, and it is easy to attach safely without the mess of external cables. With the power meter, tests can be done easily, safely and accurately an all types of small electrical appliances up to 16A, including high consumer electronics. the PCE-PA 6000 power meter used to repair small electronic devices
