Benchtop Instrument Control

Chroma SoftPanels make bench DVT testing easy. Dedicated PC control for individual instruments provides quicker connection and configuration in getting your test sequence up and running faster. With communication via USB, LAN, GPIB or RS-232 interface, SoftPanels give you access to all of the features and functions of each instrument. Your saved configurations are easily accessible shortening test time and measurements are presented in an easy to read graphical interface.

Intuitive Programming

Easily build and call up test sequences intuitively without any programming knowledge. All programming is done by entering values, selecting drop-down menus, and clicking buttons and toggles.

Save and Recall

Your device settings are saved to device memory and can be recalled the next time you power up. Test parameters are saved to your hard drive and recalled by simply opening your saved file.

View and Export Reports

Get easy access to data, graphs, and save detailed report data for analysis. Data can be exported with a specified path and filename and viewed within a few clicks.

Instruments with Available SoftPanels

AC Power Sources

Programmable AC Power and Regenerative Grid Simulators with a wide range of voltage, current, and power for simulating AC mains and line fault conditions.

AC/DC Electronic Loads

Chroma AC Loads are designed for testing uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), off-grid inverters, AC sources, and other power devices such as switches, circuit breakers, fuses and connectors.

Battery | Cell, Module, Pack Testing

High precision, integrated battery test and energy storage test solutions designed for lithium ion and other battery chemistry.

DC Power Supplies

Our programmable DC power supplies are commonly used in DC-DC converter, PV inverter, telecom, battery charger, EV / automotive, burn-in, and plating/electrolysis testing.

Digital Power Meters

Designed for both single-phase and multiple phase measurements of AC power signals and related parameters common to most electronic products.

Grid Simulators

Full 4 quadrant, fully regenerative, AC power source that emulates grid characteristics for testing to standards such as IEEE 1547 / IEC 61000-3-15 / IEC 62116.

Hipot & Safety Testers

Hipot testers or dielectric withstand testing instruments are used for conducting electrical safety tests on electrical components and products to make certain they are in compliance with IEC, UL, TUV, CSA, EN, and other electrical safety requirements.

LCR Meters

Chroma LCR meters measure inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R) of components during R&D, production, QA, and incoming inspection.
