The Tektronix Ballast-CT simplifies the measurement of output power and tube current in high frequency electronic lighting ballasts. This device is specifically designed for lighting applications, and overcomes problems that are usually found when using conventional or Hall Effect current transformers. When used in conjunction with a Tektronix PA1000 power analyzer, the free-standing Ballast-CT accessory provides a convenient and accurate solution to taking power measurements in lighting ballast circuits.
The Ballast-CT is an enclosed current-sensing transformer with 4 mm terminals that connect between your lighting circuit and Tektronix power analyzers. Circuit connections should be made with the high-quality safety leads that are supplied with the Power Analyzers.
