Performance. Reliance. Brilliance.

The Sorensen™ Asterion® DC ASA Series is the newest addition to the Asterion platform of power testing solutions. The new ASA series features three independent, isolated 600W channels for a combined 1800W total output power.


Maximize rack space utilization with leading DC power density in a 1U chassis.
Quickly and expertly control the DC supply with intuitive touchscreen.

Mix or match any three of five available output channel options:
60 V - 42 A 80 V – 22 A 200 V – 17 A 400 V – 6 A 600 V – 2.8 A

Sequencing: Store 50 sequences of 20 individual steps. Sequences may be tied together. Extensive list of step functions, ramping, looping, Go-To and subroutine calls. Sequences are only available through remote interfaces, not available on the front panel.

Voltage and Current Ramps: Programmable dwell time from 1 millisecond minimum to 9,999 seconds maximum.

On and Off Delays: Programmable from 0.1 second minimum to 9,999 seconds maximum.

Three-Phase AC Input flexibility: Exceptionally well suited for integrated system phase balancing.

The Asterion DC ASA Series provides industry-leading high-power density with three 600 Watt channels in a 1U (1.75 inch, 44.45 mm) high chassis. Each channel is isolated for independent voltage, current, or power control and measurement. Eight available channel output options can be mixed or matched in each unit providing the ultimate flexibility. This space-saving design enables system integrators more capability in less space than other competing products.


Control via Front Panel Touchscreen & Encoder Knob or available digital control interfaces


The Asterion DC ASA Series is Digital Signal Processor (DSP) controlled and can be operated from the intuitive, easy-to-use front panel touchscreen or the Ethernet LXI, USB, and RS232 standard control interfaces, as well as through the optional GPIB control interface.

The touchscreen function group icons include a Dashboard, Output Programming Parameters,  Measurements, Sequencing, Configuration, Control Interfaces, Applications, and System Settings.  Function selection and parameter entry can be achieved either by direct selection from the touchscreen or by using the encoder selector button. The control resolution is adjusted by a dynamic rate change algorithm that combines the benefits of precise control over small parameter changes with quick sweeps through the entire range.

The Asterion DC ASM Series is designed for testing today’s complex electronics, including telecommunications and commercial electronics requiring low profile, light weight power supplies with high power density. Other applications include:


• Military and aerospace electronics test
• DC power simulation
• Commercial manufacturing and process control
• Research and development
• Automotive component and battery testing
• ATE applications
