AC Power Sources includes 16 waveform library.

Press Release Summary:

Available with manual or programmable controller, ASX series switch-mode topology AC Power Sources achieve power conversion using pulse-width modulation. Manual controller enables users to adjust voltage and frequency from instrument's front panel. Controller includes 1 phase/ 3 phase switch selectable output, 1500 to 6000 VA output capacity, and 600 V output that covers frequency band of 15 to 1200 Hz.

Original Press Release:

Single- and Three-Phase AC Power Source

New Technology Increases Instrument Reliability and Reduces Operating Costs

Irvine, California, February 2002: Pacific Power Source is pleased to announce the ASX series of switch-mode topology AC Power Sources, part of our new Smartsource(TM) line of instruments. Power conversion within the ASX series is achieved using high-frequency pulse-width modulation, with key user benefits are cool, quiet, efficient performance and reduced operating costs.

All ASX series power sources are available with either manual or programmable controllers.

Manual controllers enable users to adjust voltage and frequency from the front panel of the instrument. Typical applications include R&D labs and test environments where only basic frequency conversion is required.

Programmable controllers allow users to incorporate any of the ASX Series instruments into fully integrated test systems and are ideally suited for automated and semi-automated production environments as well as specialized R&D test lab applications. The programmable controllers can be used to simulate a variety of power conditions for equipment under test (EUT), capture and characterize output of those simulations, and provide users with a detailed performance analysis. Programming and monitoring can be achieved using the instrument's front panel or an optional RS-232 or GPIB interface.

Programmable controller features include:

- Arbitrary Waveform Generator - 16 Waveform Library
- Precision Voltage Programming - 0.05% with CSC engaged
- Precision True-RMS metering of volts, amps, and power for displays and reporting
- 1 Phase/ 3 Phase Switch Selectable output from front panel or bus command
- LabVIEW for Windows(TM) and LabWindows Instrument Drivers

Output capacity for the ASX series range from 1500VA to 6000VA. Output voltages are available up to 600 volts and cover a frequency band of 15 to 1200 Hz. The ASX series is also able to provide single, split-phase and three-phase outputs. In addition, the company offers a wide variety of options and custom configurations to fit the most demanding applications.

Since 1972, Pacific Power Source has been providing innovative products designed to provide our customers with the highest standards of performance, quality, reliability and value. Please contact us at 800-854-2433, email or visit our web site at
