GW Instek launches the APS-7000E series the economy version of the APS-7000 programmable AC power source. With the height of 2U, the maximum rated output for APS-7050E is 500VA, 310Vrms, 4.2Arms and APS-7100E is 1000VA, 310Vrms, 8.4Arms. The output frequency range of the series is 45~500Hz. The series is ideal for the test and development of DC power supply devices, consumer electronics, automotive electronics and electronic components.
The APS-7000E series comprises six measurement and test functions (Vrms, Irms, F, Ipk, W, PF), and provides user interface similar to that of AC Power Meter. The APS-7000E series, via switching many sets of current levels to increase small current measurement resolution, is ideal for the LED industry and standby mode power consumption test. Ten sets of Preset allow users to store ten settings
To meet the test criteria of line voltage fluctuation often seen in consumer electronics, the APS-7000E series not only provides a stable AC power source but also features the Test mode to satisfy special or abnormal voltage and frequency variation demands. Ten sets of the Test mode simulate power outage, voltage rise, and voltage fall. The APS-7000E series that simulates waveforms of city power grid’s transient changes is suitable for verifying electronics products operated under abnormal power source.
The APS-7000E series is the economy version of the APS-7000 series. If communications interface and larger voltage/frequency are required, please refer to the APS-7000 series. The functionality comparison between the APS-7000 series and the APS-7000E series is listed on this NPI.
Control Panel Characteristics
There are two control panel modes: Standard mode and Simple mode. Both modes are shown as below. Standard mode combines settings and AC Power Meter measurement window display. Users apply Function key (F1~F3) to select required measurement items. There are six items for selection. Simple mode shows all measurement items on the display.
This mode can rapidly produce different simulated input transient waveforms such as power outage; voltage rise and voltage fall etc. for engineers to evaluate the impact on DUT posed by the transient phenomena. For instance, capacitor endurance test.
