Need an Arbitrary Waveform Power Source? No Problem!
The APS-1102 is not only in the role as a precision AC/DC power source
but also a powerful analyzer, containing abundant features for the testing and characteristic analysis of power
supplies, electronic devices, components and modules. Besides providing AC/DC power, APS-1102 also allows free
programming of outputs for the simulation of a power source with abnormal variations. The instantaneous interruption,
frequency sweeping, voltage sweeping, and arbitrary waveforms of power source can be easily generated in accordance
with the test requirements. The output function includes two main modes, AC and AC + DC. Each mode can be combined
with any of the four signal sources, internal (INT), external (EXT), internal + external (ADD), and synchronization,
to give an ultimate flexibility of power source setting. APS-1102 includes a multi-functional and user-friendly
software, which supports the remote control of panel operations, Sequence editing and execution, Arbitrary waveform
editing and transfer, and Data logging via USB interface. With capacity of 1kVA power and weighting of 20 lbs,
APS-1102 provides powerful test and analysis features all in a comparatively compact and light-weight box.
Inrush Current Measurement and Inrush Current Limiter
An electronic device containing a capacitor type rectifier, an inrush current, which is larger than the rated
current of the device, may flow through the power line immediately after the device is turned on. APS-1102,
with peak current hold capability, is able to measure this short time inrush current. On the other hand, the
large inrush current flows through the power line may cause the voltage drop, so the electronic device should
be able to limit this effect to a certain extent. APS-1102 can supply four times as large peak current as the
rated current to support this test.
The output current can be limited by setting the maximum output current (peak/average current) in advance, so
the prototypes can be protected from abnormal current damage during development evaluation. However, to measure
the inrush current of a completed product, the peak current limiter should be set at the maximum value to get
a correct measurement result.
