Description

The RS Series consists of multiple high power AC and DC power systems that provide controlled AC and DC output for ATE and product test applications.

Key Features:

  • High Power AC and DC Power Source: Programmable AC and DC power for frequency conversion and product test applications

  • Expandable Power Levels: Available output power of 90 kVA per unit and multi-unit configurations for power requirements up to 540 kVA and above

  • Arbitrary & Harmonic Waveform Generation: User defined voltage waveform and distortion programming

  • Regenerative, bidirectional "Green" Power Solution: Automatic crossover between Source and Current Sink power mode offers regenerative capabilities. Regenerate up to 100% of the rated output power back to the utility grid during sink mode operation. (-SNK option)

  • Remote Control: Standard RS232C & USB along with optional IEEE-488 & LAN Interfaces are available for automated test applications

This high power AC and DC test system covers a wide spectrum of AC and DC power applications at an affordable cost. Using state-of-the-art PWM switching techniques, the RS series combines compactness, robustness and functionality in a compact floor-standing chassis, no larger than a typical office copying machine. This higher power density has been accomplished without the need to resort to elaborate cooling schemes or additional installation wiring. Simply roll the RS unit to its designated location (using included casters), plug it in, and the RS series is ready to work for you.

Simple Operation:

The RS Series can be operated completely from its menu driven front panel controller. A backlit LCD display shows menus, setup data, and read-back measurements. IEEE-488, RS232C, USB and LAN remote control interfaces and instrument drivers for popular ATE programming environments are available. This allows the RS Series to be easily integrated into an automated test system. For advanced test applications, the programmable controller version offers full arbitrary waveform generation, time and frequency domain measurements, and voltage and current waveform capture.

Configurations:

The RS90 delivers output up to 90kVA in AC mode and 65% of rated power in DC and AC+DC mode.

For higher power requirements, the RS180, RS270, RS360, RS450 and RS540 models are available. Available reconfigurable RS models (-MB designation) provide multiple controllers which allow separation of the high power system into up to six individual RS90 units for use in separate applications. This ability to reconfigure the system provides an even greater level of flexibility not commonly found in power systems.

Product Evaluation and Test:

Increasingly, manufacturers of high power equipment and appliances are required to fully evaluate and test their products over a wide range of input line conditions. The built-in output transient generation and read-back measurement capability of the RS Series offers the convenience of a powerful, and easy to use, integrated test system.

Regenerative, bidirectional “Green” Power Solution:

The RS Series features the ability to both source and sink current, i.e. bi-directional current flow. The RS amplifier is designed to reverse the phase relationship between the AC input.
