    Default Can Chroma 8000 get a correct reading of ripple and noise (Vp-p)?

    http://power.zol.com.cn/121/1214747.html

    They threw 29 units on a Chroma 8000 system (which belongs to GreatWall), and resulted that may of them have ripple & noise values out of spec under full-load. Some units are known to deliver clean outputs, but failed the test. Some other units that are no so clean made a clean pass. Why? Is Chroma ATS too sensitive comparing to regular O-scopes?

    The bog standard Chroma 8000 won't capture ripple/noise, it requires additional equipment to do that and process it correctly.

    So it depends on how O-scope is configured on GreatWall's Chroma system.

    Yeah it going to depend on how they have it configured, interference, etc.
