The AEMC PowerPad Jr. Model 8230 is a single-phase power quality analyzer that is easy-to-use, compact and shock-resistant. It is intended for technicians and engineers to measure and carry out diagnostic work and power quality work on single-phase systems and three-phase balanced load networks. Users are able to obtain instant waveforms of an electrical network's characteristics, and also monitor their variation over a period of time.

The multi-tasking measurement system of the 8230 simultaneously handles all the measurement functions and waveform display of the various parameters, detection, continuous recordings, and their display without any constraints.

The AEMC model 8230 ships complete with:

  • Current probe w/10 ft lead
  • Blk/Red 10 ft voltage leads and alligator clips
  • Optical USB cable
  • (1) NiMH battery
  • 120 V US wall charger
  • DataView software
  • Carrying bag
  • Manual
