The Summit Technology High Frequency Analysis Option (FAO) works with the PS4500 power quality analyzers and the HA1000 current probes. It is a combination of hardware, firmware, and software that allows you to analyze the presence of high-frequency power line noise content from 3,000 Hz to 100,000 Hz, and < 1 volt peak. The FAO option extends the capability of the or PS4500 power quality analyzer meter into a hand-held spectrum analyzer. This option is useful in determining whether power-line noise is present that may cause disruption of those equipment that are especially sensitive to such high-frequency noise.

The FAO is designed to measure continuous high-frequency noise. This is distinct from transient events that can be captured by the Power Quality Analyzer impulse measurement system. The PS4500 captures transients as fast as 8 us and up to 1000 volts peak.

With the FAO option the high-frequency content of both voltage and current can be evaluated simultaneously. To analyze the high-frequency content of power circuits you will need to plug voltage leads into the FAO voltage conditioning accessory and connect the FAO to a PS4500. To analyze the high-frequency content of current, connect an HA1000 current probe into a special adapter cable that then plugs into your PowerSight PS4500 meter.
