Programmable AC Power Sources up to 3000 VA - 9830 Series

The 9830 Series programmable AC power sources provide high performance and low total harmonic distortion in a 3U form factor. The addition of positive and negative DC offset voltages expands the AC capabilities to operate in DC and AC+DC output coupling modes.

The user can select built-in and user-defined harmonic waveforms or select from standard sine, square or clipped sine outputs. The high output current crest factor and low input resistance are suitable for high inrush current measurements when evaluating capacitive or inductive loads

Flexible operation
Adjustable AC/DC voltage levels, frequency and timing parameters allow for simulation of voltage drops and periodic power surges and sags. Step, pulse and list modes are used to generate complex power line disturbance simulations. Select from built-in waveforms or generate user-defined waveforms with the included PC software or by connecting an arbitrary waveform generator to the instrument’s analog input.

All models in the 9830 Series:
Model Max Voltage Max Current Max Power
9832 0 - 300 V 0 - 20 A 2000 VA
9833 0 - 300 V 0 - 30 A 3000 VA
