Note 1: The uncertainties shown are for the most favorable conditions. There is an increase in uncertainty that corresponds to the laboratory's AC voltage and current uncertainties at different frequencies other than the ones shown. Power factors (PF) other than the one shown contribute to the power uncertainty. PF is related to the cosine of phase. Therefore, uncertainties track the laboratory's phase uncertainty closely at PF near one but are magnified heavily as PF approaches zero. The lab may also report reactive power, apparent power, and power factor under this accreditation. If needed, contact laboratory for more information regarding uncertainties at frequency and power factor combinations other than the ones shown.
