Programmable AC Power Source

Chroma 61509, 61508, 61507, 61609, 61608, 61607

The right solution to meet complex single and three phase requirements with the ability to simulate AC line conditions and measure critical product characteristics during testing.

Power Rating

3kVA / 4.5kVA / 6kVA

Voltage Range

0~175V/0~350V/Auto

Frequency

DC, 15Hz~2kHz (5kHz opt.)

The Chroma programmable AC power source 61500/61600 series are the right solutions to meet complex single and three phase requirements due to their ability to simulate AC line conditions and measure critical product characteristics during testing. These features make the 61500/61600 series ideal for commercial, power electronics, avionics, military, and regulation test applications from bench-top R/D design verification and quality assurance to mass production.

DC functionality enhancements, with DC power ratings of up to 75% of full output power, has further extended test application capabilities especially for AC/DC server PSU.

Comprehensive Measurements

Chroma programmable AC power sources have built-in 16-bit measurement circuits and firmware utilities to measure true RMS voltage, current, true power, apparent power, reactive power, power factor, current crest factor, repetitive peak current, and inrush current. Using advanced DSP technology, the 61500 series can measure THD and up to 50 orders of current harmonics. The 5.7″ Color LCD provides users with easy-to-operate interfaces by integrating parameters and functions on single display pages. The panels are also capable of voltage and current measurement waveform displays.

Power Line Disturbance Simulation (61500 Series)

The Chroma 61500 series can also provide powerful functions to simulate all kinds of power line disturbance conditions. The STEP and PULSE modes offer easy and convenient methods to execute single step or continuous output changes. The changes may be triggered by internal or external events. This allows for an easy simulation of power line disturbances such as cycle dropouts, transient spikes, brown outs, etc. The LIST mode extends this function for more complex waveform generator needs of up to 100 sequences with different start-end conditions that can perform almost any waveform by AC and DC components.

The Chroma AC power source 61500 series is also capable of simulating all sorts of voltage dips, interruptions, and variation waveforms for IEC 61000-4-11 pre-compliance tests and IEC61000-4-14/IEC61000-4-28 compliance tests.
