High Performance 500VA – 9000VA
Programmable AC and DC Power Sources
Brilliant innovation. Unrivalled performance.
The new California Instruments ‘Asterion’ line of AC power supplies by AMETEK Programmable Power combines intelligence and flexibility to create an advanced platform of AC solutions. This easy-to-configure design features sophisticated technology for delivering high performance, programmable AC and DC power.
Its sleek design delivers maximum power density into a low-profile design with an intuitive touch screen interface placing that power at your fingertips. Centralised control and unparalleled modularity make Asterion the most adaptable platform on the market. Its ground breaking capabilities set the standard for affordable, precision power sources.
All Asterion power supplies employ AMETEK’s latest current enhancing technology, iX2™. The iX2 current doubling technology enables output current to increase linearly up to two times the full voltage current as the voltage decreases from range maximum to one-half of range voltage.
iX2 technology results in a power supply that delivers full power over the widest voltage ranges. This eliminates the need to buy overpowered sources just to reach low line current requirements.
Control Via Front Panel Touch Screen & Encoder or available digital control interfaces
The Asterion AC Series 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. 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 AC Series is designed for testing today’s complex electronics, including avionics, telecommunications and commercial electronics requiring low profile, light weight power supplies with high power density. Other applications include:
Virtual panels allow remote control of the Asterion AC power supply, as well as programming communication and monitoring for the Asterion ATE model (which doesn’t have the panel display).
