The Chroma Programmable AC source model 61700 series delivers pure, 5-wire, 3-phase AC power. Unlike the traditional 3-phase AC 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.

Comprehensive Measurements

By building in a 16-bit precision measurement circuit, the 61700 series AC source offers precision and high speed measurements. Such as RMS voltage, RMS current, true power, power factor, and current crest factor, VA (apparent power) and VAR (reactive power). Users can use rotary knob to change the measurement items shown on LCD display. They also can change page to see more measurement items.


Slew Rate of Voltage

Chroma 61700 PanelProgrammable AC Source 61700 Series use DSP technology to program voltage waveform. Users can change the voltage in only one step. Or users can set the slew rate to get a gradual increase or decrease of voltage. It can help to easily test the line input range of the products, for example 190V-264V. It can also reduce the inrush current if setting the line in voltage to increase from a low level to a high level.


61700 Series AC Source Applications


Power Line Disturbance Simulation (Optional Function)

In addition to the steady output voltage and frequency programming, Chroma AC power source 61700 series provides the powerful functions PULSE, LIST and STEP to simulate all kinds of power line disturbance conditions.

61700 Pulse, List, Step


Harmonics, Interharmonics Sythesis (Optional Function)

Users can make use of the softpanel software (A617001) to synthesize harmonic waveforms and store them in the memory of the AC source. An interharmonic sweeping function from 0.01Hz to 2400Hz is also available to generate a distorted non-periodic waveform directly from 61700 series front panel.
