Compact AC Power With European and US
outlet sockets

End of Life notice: Last day to buy 04-15-2014

Product Overview

Compact AC Power With European and US outlet sockets to connect the load, the 801P, 1001P and 1251P portable programmable AC power sources are ideal for a wide variety of applications.

Universal input allows use anywhere in the world to provide a convenient source of variable utility power for the testing and evaluation of domestic and commercial equipment. All common line voltage and frequency combinations are covered.

In addition, the frequency range covers 500 Hz, making these products ideal for commercial and defense avionics applications. The current measurement function eliminates the need for an external current shunt or transformer. Load current of the UUT (Unit Under Test) can be read directly on the large LCD display to 0.1 A. For additional protection, a current limit function can be set from zero to the maximum current available.

High peak current capability of more than three times the RMS current allows the P Series to drive non-linear loads

Easy To Use Controls
Front panel digital rotary encoders are used to set voltage and frequency. These controls have an analog feel, with the precision and reliability of digital circuits. Settings are read directly on the large high contrast LCD displays. Both models offer two output voltage ranges, 135 VRMS L-N and 270 VRMS L-N, maximizing the current at the required voltage. The output frequency can be varied from 16 Hz up to 500 Hz to cover both avionics and utility power applications.

Product Evaluation and Test Applications
Traditional Variac tests can be automated using the P Series AC sources. With digital voltage readout, and measurement of load current, several items of equipment can be eliminated from‘first time power up’ tests. All functions are contained in a single convenient and easily portable package, which can be most useful in production applications.

Avionics Applications
As affordable and reliable sources of 400 Hz AC power, the 801P, 1001P and 1251P are well suited for commercial and defense avionics applications.

Remote Control
Equipped with the optional RS232C serial interface, these units are easily integrated into an ATE system. A Windows™ Graphical User Interface (GUI) program is included for PC control applications.

Low Cost Of Ownership
Careful design, the use of modular construction and quality components, all contribute to provide many years of uninterrupted service. The modular construction allows components or subassemblies to be replaced quickly to minimize downtime.
