Chroma 5kHz AC Power Supply Fulfills High Frequency Testing Needs

Nowadays, various industries need their electrical test application to go beyond the regular AC power frequency of 50/60Hz, as technology with higher frequency is constantly being developed for use in all sorts of power applications. This will increase the demands for duplicating the high frequency condition derived from actual implementations such as control signal of precision equipment, noise interference of electronic devices, and harmonic distortion of gird line.

By incorporating the latest released 5kHz output frequency option into the Chroma 61509 / 61508 / 61507 high performance programmable AC power sources that deliver output voltage in DC, single-phase or three-phase settings, their capability to provide comprehensive test solution based on the aforementioned high frequency condition is even further extended.

The majority of applications related to high frequency technology come from the aviation industry. As laid out by avionic standards, there is a multitude of regulation arrangements on the part of aviation power system testing, including AC and DC, single-phase and three-phase, and high and low frequency. Responding to these large and complex power supply testing requirements, Chroma also offers a soft panel specifically for avionics standards. The software goes with the hardware products of the Chroma High Performance Programmable AC Power Source Model 61500 Series and its testing functions include the avionic standards MIL-STD-704F, RTCA DO-160G, and ABD0100.1.8.1.Through the simple graphic control interface, the user is able to quickly complete the complex and ever-changing avionic regulations.
