Tektronix announced that it will enter the power analyzer instrument market and introduce a full new product line in the coming months. To facilitate this move, Tektronix has implemented a technology transfer agreement that includes power analyzer intellectual property, patents and product designs from its partner Voltech, which will exit the power analyzer segment of its business by September 30, 2013.
By offering new power analyzers, the company says it is rounding out its portfolio of products to the customers they currently serve and future customers focused on the power market.
As part of the technology transfer, Tektronix and Voltech have agreed to work closely over the course of 2013 and beyond to ensure a smooth transition for existing Voltech power analyzer customers. Voltech will focus on innovation in its transformer tester market and continue to offer service, repair and application support on all Voltech branded products for many years to come. Customers of the new Tektronix power analyzers will have service and support provided through Tektronix's Factory-Certified service organization.
