   Usage Note: To receive data, first input the line current and probe. Press F for a Fourier transform of current. The result in IntuScope5 is a bar graph with data that is presented as triangles. That data is plotted against the specification limits for the particular equipment class. You must have the current vector for this to run.

Class A Equipment
Description IEC 61000 Electromagnetic Interference Specifications (Limits for Harmonic Current Emissions) for Class A Equipment. This specifies limits of harmonic components of the input current which may be produced by balanced three-phase equipment; household appliances, excluding equipment identified as Class D; tools, excluding portable tools; dimmers for incandescent lamps; and audio equipment.
