Variable speed AC motor drive development and implementation with the Yokogawa DL850 ScopeCorder

The DL350 ScopeCorder combines in one compact instrument all the measurement and recording capabilities you need when you are away from your office or lab. High-speed signals or long-term recording, ‘quick and simple’ or sophisticated operation, the DL350 provides the flexibility you need when you need it.

Yokogawa products for your interest:

The DL350 portable ScopeCorder
The DL350 ScopeCorder is a portable instrument featuring the deep measurement and recording capabilities you need in the lab in a compact instrument you can take into the field. A ScopeCorder combines the transient signal capturing capabilities of an oscilloscope with the long-term datalogging capabilities of a data recorder. For “quick and easy” troubleshooting or sophisticated mixed-signal datalogging, the DL350 is a portable, powerful, and useable engineering tool that makes complete measurements completely portable.

The DL850E/EV ScopeCorder
ScopeCorder DL850E combines a mixed signal oscilloscope and portable data acquisition recorder into a modular platform designed to capture both high-speed transients and low speed trends. Using flexible modular I/O with built-in signal conditioning, precisely measure electrical, physical sensor signals and CAN/ LIN / SENT serial bus for applications ranging from R&D research to in-vehicle data logging.

DLM4000 Mixed signal oscilloscope
The DLM4000 is a unique to the industry eight-channel mixed-signal oscilloscope suitable to test and debugging applications in the embedded systems, power electronics, mechatronics, and automotive sectors.

WT3000E Precision power analyzer
The WT3000E provides engineers with a solution for testing and verifying product efficiency including the powertrains of electric and hybrid vehicles. The WT3000E is ideal for the design and testing of Solar Inverters, Motor Drives, Lighting Systems, Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Transformer Testing, Aircraft Power Systems, and other power conversion devices. Used by manufacturers and racing teams in the design of Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS).
