GW Instek GPM-8320/8330 are digital power meters designed specifically for measuring power in three-phase AC power sources, making it suitable for most electrical and electronic product testing applications (GPM-8320 provides 2 modules, and GPM-8330 provides 3 modules). These models have a testing bandwidth of DC, 0.1Hz~100 kHz and feature 16-bit A/D converters and a sampling rate of 300 kHz. A 5-inch TFT LCD display, 5 digits of measurement readings, 25 different power measurement parameters, and high precision measurement capabilities are also provided. GPM-8320/8330 also feature waveform display capabilities (voltage/current/power), the integration measurement function, harmonics measurement and analysis of multiple orders (50/60Hz measurement complies with IEC61000-4-7 requirements), external sensor input terminals, and a variety of communications interfaces. These features help users achieve clear, convenient, and accurate power measurements, making them the most fully-featured and cost-effective power meters in the same category.
GPM-8320/8330 provide multiple input voltage configuration wiring modes (1P3W/3P3W/3P4W/3V3A). Users can choose the wiring mode according to their specific requirements to measure parameters for specific wiring methods, and even calculate efficiency. In addition, for a rated input voltage of 1000V and an input current of 20A, they support a minimum current range of 0.5A (resolution of 0.1mA), power measurement resolution of 0.1mW, crest factor of 3 (for half range, the CF can reach up to 6 or 6A), and voltage/current/power measurement accuracy of ±0.1% reading ±0.05% range. Users can select different measurement modes (AC+DC/ AC/ DC/ V-MEAN) to provide up to 25 related parameters for power measurement. These parameters include voltage (Vrms/ Vac/ Vdc/ Vmn/ V+pk / V-pk), current (Irms/ Iac/ Idc/ I+pk/ I-pk), frequency (VHz/ IHz), power (P/ P+pk/ P-pk), crest factor (CFV/ CFI), apparent power (VA), reactive power (VAR), power factor (PF), phase angle (DEG), total harmonic distortion (THDV/ THDI), maximum current ratio (MCR), and MATH calculation function. Therefore, they provide the best range and accuracy support for measuring the power consumption of electrical and electronic products.
GPM-8320/8330 also effectively utilize the advantages of TFT LCD display, providing results of parameter measurements in both numerical and graphical formats. In terms of numerical display, it offers a general mode and a multiple mode. The general mode includes 4 tabs (page1~page4), and each tab can display 10 measurement parameters (2 main measurements + 8 monitoring measurements). Users can freely combine these parameters to display the results of measurements from various modules. The multiple mode can simultaneously display the measurement results of three modules, which is particularly suitable for comparing differences in measurements between modules, such as unbalanced three-phase. This mode also offers 4 tabs, and each tab can display 8 measurement parameters. In terms of graphical display, they offer a simple oscilloscope mode to display voltage, current, and power parameters in waveform format. Additionally, the display provides numerical or bar chart display for the measurement and analysis of harmonics signals at various orders that not only satisfies the need for accuracy and clear readability in process testing, but also meets the diverse measurement application requirements for research and development, design and quality verification.
GPM-8320/8330 have comprehensive mechanisms and functions for auxiliary measurements. For applications that require measuring high voltage, they provide VT rate settings that can be used with external potential transformers. For measuring large current, it depends on the type of current transformer, whether it is a voltage output type or a current output type. If it is a current output type, it can be directly locked onto the meter’s rear panel and used with CT rate settings for measurement. If it is a voltage output type, it can be measured through the external current sensor input terminals (EXT1/EXT2) provided от GPM-8320/8330. Automatic range switching can be customized to the required range to save unnecessary time spent on range switching. The internal memory of 10,000 data logs can store measurement data at the update rate set от GPM-8320/8330 or at a user-defined time interval for future analysis.
In terms of data acquisition and storage, GPM-8320/8330 offer a variety of communications interfaces, including RS-232C/USB device (virtual COM)/LAN, or optional GPIB. Users can choose to write programs to read measurement results according to their habits or in collocation with existing system interfaces. The USB host can support screen capture, internal data logging, and firmware updates for GPM-8320/8330. For those with the needs of using external signal control or data recorder for data recording, GPM-8320/8330 also offer an optional Digital I/O (DA12) interface (must be installed at the factory), which can be connected to external controllers such as PLC or data recorders to meet the needs of automated measurements or long recording applications.
