Measurement Analysis Software

The analysis software is developed for impulse current test can automatically read waveform and data through communication with oscilloscope and evaluate waveform according to the measurement method of IEC1083-2 standard. Current peak, voltage peak, wave-front time and wave-end time are calculated automatically and displayed on the computer screen together with test waveform.

Data and waveform can be saved automatically and continuously (random shooting at the test site)
