With European and US outlet sockets to connect the load, the 801RP programmable AC power source is ideal for a wide variety of applications. Universal, Power Factor Corrected (PFC) input allows these products to be used anywhere in the world to provide a convenient source of variable utility power for the testing and evaluation of domestic and commercial equipment. All common line voltage and frequency combinations are covered. In addition, the frequency range covers 500 Hz, making these products ideal for commercial and defense avionics applications. A built in current measurement function eliminates the need for an external current shunt or transformer. Load current can be read directly on the large LCD display to 0.1 A. For additional protection, a current limit function can be set from zero to the maximum current rating.
Front panel digital rotary encoders are used to set voltage and frequency. These controls have an analog feel, with the precision and reliability of digital circuits. Settings are read directly on the large high contrast LCD displays. Dual output voltage ranges of 135 Vrms and 270 Vrms, provide maximum current at the required voltage. The output frequency can be varied from 16 Hz up to 500 Hz to cover both avionics and utility power applications.
The low total harmonic distortion of the output makes the 801RP and 1251RP suitable AC sources for IEC 1000-3-2 Current Harmonics pre compliance testing. Loads requiring up to 4.6 Arms at 230 Vrms with peak currents up to 12 A can be tested with the 1251RP while the 801RP can supply up to 3.0 Arms. This covers many loads that fall under the IEC standard.
For product quality test applications, the 801RP and 1251RP can be used to simulate line conditions found anywhere in the world. This ensures products destined for export will operate as designed. As an affordable and reliable source of 400 Hz AC power, both units are well suited for commercial and defense avionics applications. Both unit can easily be integrated into avionics ATE systems.
The small form factor and low weight of these units make them convenient to use in a variety of locations. Removable rubber feet protect the work surface if the unit is used in a bench top mode. The 3.5 inch height saves valuable rack space when compared to conventional AC power sources at this power level.
