Adaptive Power Systems Introduces New AC and DC Programmable Power Sources

New models cover wide range of AC and DC power test applications.

Adaptive Power Systems Inc. (APS) is introducing a range of new, single phase AC and DC output power sources for AC and DC applications. These new products address a wide range of product development and test needs. These models cover a power range from 600VA all the way up to 5kVA for single-phase requirements and 6kVA to 15kVA for three phase requirements. Output voltage is up to 300Vac in AC mode or up to 424Vdc in DC mode for all models.

A dual range voltage output allows optimal support of continuous rated load currents on all models. All models use a large color touch-sensitive LCD display and intuitive front panel controls that makes setting output voltage, frequency and current limit simple and convenient. The large LCD displays shows a full complement of all output measurements during testing and the rotary shuttle slews voltage or frequency up or down smoothly. All CPS100 models take single-phase input voltage. Output voltage is available at any desirable voltage and frequency combination up to 1200 Hz and 300 Vac to power units under test. Simulated line drop-outs can be generated at specific phase angles to test for worst-case scenarios.

A special Go test mode, using user defined pass and fail limits for all output measurements is built-in so no user programming is required. A total of 50 line distortion simulation (LDS) transient lists can be stored in non-volatile memory. Standard LIST, PULSE and STEP transient modes are supported.

For DC testing, the CPS100 provides 212Vdc and 424Vdc voltage ranges for testing DC powered EUTs. The ability to have both AC and DC output or a combination of AC+DC greatly increases the flexibility and usefulness of the CPS100 series.

The enhanced model versions of the CPS100 series include built-in pre-compliance test modes for IEC 61000-4-11 voltage dips and interruptions, IEC 61000-4-13 Harmonics and Inter-harmonics, IEC 61000-4-14 Voltage fluctuations and IEC 61000-4-28 Frequency variations. This allows design engineers to quickly check compliance to these power immunity standard during product development.

According to Jim Logudice, sales manager for Adaptive Power Systems, Inc.: "These modern switch mode power sources offer proven reliability and cost-effective power test solutions for a wide range of AC product as well as DC product development and test requirements. They complement our popular basic frequency converters with more advanced, fully programmable models."

All CPS100 Series model are available from 4 to 6 weeks ARO.
