Precision Programmable AC Power Source From California Instrument

Westek Electronics offer the California Instruments Compact i/iX Series – a new generation of AC/DC power sources that addresses the increasing demands on test equipment to perform additional functions at a lower cost.

One of the main benefits of the Compact i/iX Series is capability of handling complex applications that have traditionally required multiple systems.

Manufacturers of electronic equipment and appliances are increasingly required to fully evaluate and test their products over a wide range of input line conditions. The built-in output transient generation and read back measurement capability offers the convenience of an easy to use and integrated test system.

The sleek integrated approach of the Compact i/iX Series avoids cable clutter, which is commonly found in test systems. All connections are made internally and the need for digital multimeters, power harmonics analysers and current shunts or clamps, is eliminated. Since many components in the Compact i/iX Series are shared between the AC/DC source and the power analyser, the total cost of the integrated system is less than the typical cost of a multiple unit system.

For less demanding applications, the Compact i/iX Series provides similar output and transient capabilities as the Compact iX Series, as well as basic power measurements.

With precise output regulation and accuracy, the compact i/iX series AC and DC sources address many application areas for AC and DC power testing. The i/iX also provides a high load current capability, multi or single phase output modes, and built-in power analyser measurements. Additional features including line distortion simulation (LDS) and arbitrary waveform generation address requirements for product quality and regulatory compliance testing.

Some of the features the California Instruments Compact i/iX Series offers:

  • 750 VA to 2250 VA of AC Output Power
  • Combines AC/DC source and power analyser
  • Harmonic analysis of Voltage and Current
  • AC, DC and AC+DC Output Modes
  • Multiple Chassis Configurations
  • Powerful output transient generation
  • High Crest Factor Capability
  • Arbitrary & harmonic waveform generation
  • Single and Three Phase models available

California Instrument AC power sources are used in R&D, test and measurement, avionics testing, inverter testing, arbitrary waveform generation, bulk power and power conditioning applications across a wide variety of industrial segments. California Instruments’ main product line is comprise of AC programmable power sources, AC power supplies, AC power sources and AC compliance testing ranging from 800VA to 480kVA. The voltage ranges from 0V to 600V and the current ranges from 0A to 1,500A.
