AMETEK Programmable Power Earns Two Russian GOST Standards Certifications
- Posted on 09/04/15 07:22PM

GOST-R and GOST-Metrology enables import and sale of products into Russia

SAN DIEGO, April 9, 2015 AMETEK Programmable Power, the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions (programmablepower.com), announced it has achieved two critical standards certifications that allow its products to be sold in Russia.

AMETEK Programmable Power products, spanning AC power sources, DC power supplies, and AC/DC loads, have received GOST-R certification. GOST certification is internationally recognized and awarded to manufacturers based on testing and verifying that the manufacturers’ products provide exemplary safety, quality and performance. GOST certification further ensures that the products are in compliance with Russian National Standards and in adherence with Euro-Asian regional standards.

In addition, AMETEK’s Sorensen brand SG DC Power Supply and Sorensen SFA Current Source both have received GOST-R and GOST-Metrology certifications.  Products that carry the GOST-Metrology certification perform to specific, high levels within a stricter, specified margin of error.

AMETEK Programmable Power designs, manufactures and markets precision, AC and DC programmable power supplies, electronic loads, application specific power subsystems, and compliance test solutions for customers requiring and valuing differentiated power products and services. It offers one of the industries' broadest portfolios of programmable power products under the Sorensen, Elgar, California Instrumentsand AMRELbrands.

GOST certification certifies that whether solutions are standard or custom, they’ve won the right to be imported, marketed, distributed and sold for Russian applications.

Online Site Makes Buying DC Power Supplies Easy and Convenient

SAN DIEGO, October 15, 2014 AMETEK Programmable Power, the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions (programmablepower.com), has launched a new online store featuring some of its most popular programmable DC power supplies and accessories. A responsive interface makes it fast and convenient for engineers to evaluate and purchase DC power products on a variety of mobile devices, such as tablets and smart phones. Visit the store: http://store.programmablepower.com.

“We’ve all become used to the immediacy of online shopping, and our customers certainly appreciate the same convenience for work-related purchases,” explained André Marais, Director of Global Sales at AMETEK Programmable Power. “We created our online store to improve the buying experience for our customers, including in stock shipping typically within 48 hours.”

With its online store, AMETEK simplified the technical ordering process to three easy steps:

  1. Choose the product model by selecting voltage and current
  2. Choose a communication interface or other pertinent options
  3. Select product quantity and add to cart

Customers can browse product categories from the drop-down menus or search for products using the convenient search bar at the top of the page. Orders are typically processed within one to two business days. For this first phase, the online store supports shipping to U. S. locations.

New California Instruments RS Series External Drive Option
- Posted on 25/08/14 03:05PM

Provides Real Time Control for Hardware-In-the-Loop Tasks

SAN DIEGO, August 25, 2014 – AMETEK Programmable Power, the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions (www.programmablepower.com), has released the External Drive (-EXTD) option for its California Instruments RS Series of high-power regenerative programmable AC sources. The External Drive option gives users a simple, low-cost way to directly control the output of an RS Series power source in real time, enabling them to be more easily used in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test systems.

Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) is a technique used in the development and test of complete real-time embedded systems.  Using HIL techniques allows simulation of real-time feedback and control of such complex systems.  HIL applications require electrical interface to act as the interface to embedded systems and the equipment under test.  HIL is commonly used to prototype systems for power grids, power electronics and hybrid electric drives.  The most recent trend is modeling dispersed energy products, such as a PV inverter, and their effects to the utility grid.

The RS Series features advanced digital signal processing (DSP) control technology to the power amplifiers within the source.  The source features traditional remote control methods, such as GPIB or LAN,that inherently introduces control delays in the hundreds of milliseconds, which do not simulate real-time control. The introduction of EXTD allows real-time control via analog signal so delays are typically reduced to 100 microseconds (figure 1), which is 1,000 times faster than the delay time of controlling the output via GPIB or LAN ports.  EXTD essentially allows the RS to be used as a high bandwidth amplifier, while the internal DSP continues to monitor the output in order to ensure safe operation.

Available with outputs ranging from 90 kVA to 1MVA, the RS is the latest series of products to use AMETEK's high-performance, pulse-width modulation (PWM) switching technology to provide advanced performance solutions for AC power test applications.

Additional details about the RS-EXTD can be found on the AMETEK Programmable Power website, including an EXTD technical note and user’s manual.
