0.1 Hz to 2 MHz frequency bandwidth
Power measurements across wide bandwidths are required for supporting high-speed switching devices such as SiC. Compared even to the Hioki 3390 Power Analyzer, the PW6001 is engineered with 10x the frequency band and sampling performance.
High accuracy, wideband, and high stability. The Hioki PW6001 combines the 3 important elements of power measurement and basic performance backed by advanced technology to achieve unsurpassed power analysis.
High-speed sampling of 5 MS/s for true frequency analysis
Measurements based on sampling theorem are required to perform an accurate power analysis of PWM waveforms. The Hioki PW6001 features direct sampling of input signals at 5 MS/s, resulting in a measurement band of 2 MHz. This enables analysis without aliasing error
Fast, simultaneous calculation functions achieved with Power Analysis Engine II
All measurements, including period detection, wideband power analysis, harmonic analysis, and waveform analysis, are digitally processed independently and with no effect on each other. Fast calculation processing is used to achieve a data update speed of 10 ms while maintaining maximum
Strengthened resistance to noise and temperature fluctuations in the absolute pursuit of measurement stability
The custom-shaped solid shield made completely of finely finished metal and optical isolation devices used to maintain sufficient creepage distance from the input terminals dramatically improve noise resistance, provide optimal stability, and achieve a CMRR performance of 80 dB/100 kHz. Add the superior temperature characteristics of ±0.01%/°C and you now have access to a power analyzer that delivers top-of-the-line measurement stability.
Analyze waveforms without an oscilloscope
In addition to voltage and current waveforms, torque sensor and encoder signals can also be displayed simultaneously. The PW6001 is also built in with triggers, pre-triggers, other triggers convenient for motor analysis such as for PWM waveforms, as well as encoder pulse triggers.
Harmonic analysis up to 1.5 MHz
Wideband harmonic analysis is provided as a standard feature to a max. 100th order for fundamental frequencies 0.1 Hz to 300 kHz and an analysis band of 1.5 MHz. Analysis of fundamental waves in motors and measurement of distortion rate in the transmission waveforms for wireless power supplies
are now possible.
Time spent on operations is reduced, to allow focused concentration on analysis.

DC accuracy is indispensable for achieving correct efficiency measurements
For example, when measuring the efficiency of a DC/AC converter, not only AC accuracy but also DC accuracy are equally important. With the PW6001, a DC measurement accuracy of ±0.02% rdg. ±0.05% f.s.* delivers correct and stable efficiency measurements.
*Unit accuracy only
Specially designed for current sensors to achieve highly precise measurement
This reduces the effects of wiring and meter loss, allowing measurements with wiring conditions that are close to the actual operating environment for a highly efficient system.
- Short wiring
- Little effect from routing
- Small insertion loss
High-accuracy clamp current sensor
The CT684x series feature broad temperature characteristics and an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, allowing them to be used in operational evaluations of devices and inside equipment that are subject to extreme temperature changes. The current sensors’ tough performance helps ensure you can make the measurements you need.
Get a combined accuracy of ±0.07% rdg. even with current sensor
Add ±0.05% rdg. accuracy of the current sensor to the PW6001’s basic accuracy of ±0.02% rdg. to achieve top-of-the-line accuracy of ±0.07%. Choose from a diverse array of sensors to cover very small currents from 10mA up to large 1000A* loads.

PC Communication Software – PW Communicator
PW Communicator is an dedicated application software for communicating between a PW6001 power meter and a PC. Free download is available from the Hioki website. The application contains convenient functions for setting the PW6001, monitoring the measurement values, acquiring data via communication, computing efficiency, and much more.
Advanced electrical angle measurement function
The PW6001 features a built-in electric angle measurement function required for the measurement of motor parameters in high-efficiency synchronized motors and the analysis of vector control via dq coordinate systems. Make real-time measurements of phases for voltage and current fundamental wave components based on encoder pulses. Further, zero-adjustment of the phase angle when induced voltage occurs allows phase measurement at the induction voltage standard. Finally, the PW6001 can detect the forward/reverse from A phase and B phase pulses to enable 4-quadrant analysis of torque and RPM.
Display any calculation result in real-time
Set equations to have PW6001 compute measurement values in the way you want. You can enter up to 16 calculation formulas, and functions like sin and log are supported. Calculation results can be used as parameters for other calculation formulas, enabling complex analysis.
