Chroma Software

Chroma Soft Panels for Instrument Control and Monitoring

Many of Chroma’s instruments have applications called soft panels, either provided at time of sale or available for later purchase. These applications allow a great deal of custom configuration, control, monitoring and reporting to be done. Below are examples of our panels for various instruments.

PowerPro III Software

Chroma 8000 Automated Test System Software Platform

PowerPro III includes extended reporting capabilities, statistic and management functions, various test document generation and system administration. The unique report wizard and generator provide the total solution for any documentation requirement. It allows users to integrate different types of presentations, like tabular test data, DSO waveform and correlation charts in M/S Word format. Users may also edit and store report formats for future use, thus saving time creating test reports. The Statistic function provides off the shelf statistical reporting tools. All the test conditions defined in the test program as well as the test readings can be stored and analyzed by the statistic report function. The report and raw data may be printed out or stored in a file.

CaptivATE Software

Create test sequences, capture data, provide bar code scanning of device model and serial number, automatic recall of test setup based upon model number and all data is saved into a database for trending and analysis.

CaptivATE software eliminates the need for the operator to make Pass/Fail judgment, record test results, make process deviation decisions, selection of the proper test, and interface with multiple types of test equipment.

Battery Testing Software Solutions

Battery Pro Software

Chroma’s Battery Pro test environment supports 17011, 17020 and 17030 using a common software platform.

Battery Charge/Discharge Test Software

Chroma has developed two software modules that integrate a DC power supply and an electronic load for battery pack testing. The Battery Charge/Discharge Testing Software programs the test sequence, loop and stop conditions. The measured voltage, current and power data is recorded in a file for future analysis. The Dynamic Current Waveform Simulation Software records to an Excel compatible file actual discharge current waveforms from the battery and instruct the electronic load to sink the same current. This is used to simulate real world applications and evaluate the battery pack in the lab.

Software for Solar testing


The 62000H DC Power Supplies include graphical user interface software through remote digital interface (USB / GPIB / Ethernet / RS232) control. The user can easily program the I-V curve of the 62000H series as well as the I-V & P-V curves for real-time testing. In addition it will display the MPPT status for the PV inverter.
