Exploring Programmable AC Source

Programmable AC Source

Chroma 6500

Used for R&D design characterization, production testing, and QA verification of commercial, industrial, and aerospace electronic products

Power Rating

1200VA~9000VA

Voltage Range

150V / 300V / Auto

Frequency

15 ~ 2K Hz / 45 ~ 1K Hz

The Chroma Programmable AC Power Source 6500 series delivers the right solution to simulate all kinds of normal/abnormal input conditions and measure the critical characteristics of the product under test. It can be used for R&D design characterization, production testing, and QA verification of commercial, industrial, and aerospace electronic products.

Chroma 6500 Series is capable of delivering the maximum rated power for the output voltage up to 300 Vac, and the frequency between 15Hz to 2000Hz.

Advanced PWM Technology

The input AC to DC stage in the AC Source incorporates modern power factor correction circuit to increase the input power factor more than 0.98 to meet the IEC regulations. It reduces the input current requirement and raises the efficiency up to over 80%. Using the isolation provided by DC to DC stage, the final DC to AC output stage eliminates the heavy low frequency output transformer, and decreases the weight to 30 Kgs only. The model 6530, packaged in 5U height rack-mountable unit, delivers full 3,000 VA output at 100V or 200V.

Transient Power Line Disturbance Simulation

Chroma 6500 provides a powerful tool to simulate all kinds of power line disturbance conditions. The STEP and PULSE modes offer an easy and convenient method to execute single step or continue output changes. The output voltage amplitude, frequency, phase angle, and waveform shape can be controlled in response to input trigger generated from an internal or external event. The LIST transient mode extends this capability further for more complex waveform generation needs. Up to 40 sequences of output setting can be precisely executed in response to a triggered or paced dwell time programmed in advance without computer intervention.
