Housed in 4U 19" rack mount chassis, the 3150AFX delivers an astounding 15,000 VA of output power. Made possible by extensive use of advanced digital signal processor control of all internal power stages, the AFX delivers the highest density programmable AC and DC power capability on the market today. Convenient to operate from the front panel keypad or remote interface, the AFX Series models are ideal for AC Power simulation, automated testing, frequency conversion, laboratory, and bench-top power applications. Modular Higher Power Systems By paralleling master and auxiliary AFX units, higher power systems can be configured easily to provide more than 15kVA of power. Pre-configured cabinet systems containing multiple AFX Master/Aux units are available as catalog items. • Output Transient Programming • 99 Stored Programs with Associated Transients for Static and Dynamic Test Applications • Large Color LCD and Easy Front Panel Menu Driven Operation • Shuttle Allows Easy Slewing of Output Parameters • Unique Sleep Modes Save Energy, Reduces Needless Heat Generation and Extends the Life of the Power Source The Leader in AC Power Technology An early pioneer in the development of solid-state power conversion equipment, Pacific Power Source continues to develop, manufacture, and market both linear and switched mode AC Power Sources.

AFX SERIES Single Voltage Range with Constant Power Profile Traditional AC power sources use two voltage ranges to provide either high voltage or high current. By contrast, the AFX Series uses a unique single voltage range that operates along a constant power curve. This provides more current at low voltages, eliminating the need to switch between voltage ranges and provides a much wider operating range (demonstrated as green in the figure to the right). Switching voltage ranges on other AC sources causes the output to be turned off and the EUT to shut down. This makes it difficult to test...

AC Power Test Applications Voltage and Frequency output transient sequences are easily created from the front panel using an intuitive spreadsheet style data entry method. Data may be entered for a specific phase or for all three phases at the same time. Transient functions include ramps for slewing and programmable dwell times for each step. Transient sequences can be stored in non-volatile memory and easily edited as needed on screen. If preferred, transient programming and execution can be also be accomplished via the build-in web server using any browser over the USB or optional LAN...

AFX SERIES DC Power Test Applications The AFX Series doubles as a DC power supply with either a single DC output (FORM1) or up to three individual bipolar (2-Quadrant) DC outputs. Available voltage range is 425Vdc and the same constant power range technology is used to provide a wide operating range for diverse DC voltage and current requirements. See Volt/Current Chart on the right. Transient programming covers DC levels and slew rates as is the case for AC applications but there is no frequency to program. Programmable voltage slew rate settings may be used to control the rise and fall...
