Linear AC Power Sources provide 500 VA to 12 kVA.

Press Release Summary:

Low distortion AMX Series produces single-phase, split-phase, or 3-phase power. Select models may be connected in parallel to provide up to 30 kVA. Units combine broad, 50 kHz small-signal bandwidth with peak to RMS current ratio of 4-6:1. They feature continuous self-calibration and programmable output impedance. AMX Series can be configured with manual or programmable controllers.

High Performance Linear AC Power Sources (500VA-12kVA)

AMX Seres Produces High Quality, Low Distortion Single-Phase and Three-Phase Output Power

Irvine, California, April 2002: Pacific Power Source is pleased to announce the AMX series of high performance Linear AC Power Sources, part of our Smartsource(TM) line of instruments. Output power ranges from 500VA to 12kVA in single-phase, split-phase or three-phase mode. For applications requiring more power, select models may also be connected in parallel to provide up to 30kVA of output power. All instruments are available with either manual or programmable controllers.

The entire AMX series is able to produce high quality, low-distortion output power into the most dynamic loads. This is accomplished by combining an exceptionally broad, 50 kHz small-signal bandwidth, with a peak to RMS current ratio of 4-6:1. Customers with demanding applications should note that all AMX instruments have very conservative output power ratings based upon the most severe combinations of input line, output voltage, power factor and temperature. These high-performance instruments were also designed to operate quietly and to utilize limited space efficiently, providing maximum power per cubic inch of rack space.

Applications range from simple, manually-controlled frequency conversion to harmonic testing and sophisticated bus-programmable transient simulation. Whether configured with manual or programmable controllers, the AMX instruments are designed to provide operators and test engineers with broad application versatility and capability without compromising ease-of-use.
