The Chroma Programmable AC Power Source model 61700 series delivers pure, 5-wire, 3-phase AC power. Unlike the traditional 3-phase AC power source, it includes low power rating models at very low cost. Users can program voltage and frequency, measure the critical characteristics of the output on its LCD display. It delivers the right solution to simulate all kinds of input condition of UUT to be utilized in R&D and QA. It is also suitable for commercial applications from laboratory testing to mass productions.
The 61700 supplies the output voltage from 0 to 300VAC and it can be set individually for each phase. Users also can set the phase angle from 0° to 360°. These kinds of function make the 61700 series can simulate unbalance 3-phase power. Because of the wide output frequency from 15 to 1200Hz, it is suitable for avionics, and marine application. The AC+DC mode extends the output function to simulate abnormal situation when power line contains DC offset.
The 61700 series uses the state-of-the-art PWM technology, so it is capable to generate very clean AC output with typical distortion less than 0.3%. With power factor correction circuit, the 61700 series yields higher efficiency and deliver more output power.
By using advanced DSP technology, the 61700 series offers precision and high speed measurements such as RMS voltage, RMS current, true power, power factor, and current crest factor, etc.
The 61700 series offers an optional function to output transient voltage. The function includes LIST, PULSE, STEP and INTERHARMONICS mode. Users can easily program variant waveform for immunity test. The 61700 series can also be controlled by a powerful and user-friendly SoftPanel through GPIB or RS-232 interface. Besides that, the SoftPanel includes a waveform editor that can edit up to 40th order harmonic components. By this way, the 61700 series get the ability to output distorted waveform as users like.
The self-diagnosis routine and protections against overpower, over current, over voltage, over temperature and fan fail, the 61700 series ensure the quality and reliability for even the most demanding engineering testing and production line application.
