    Advanced PWM Technology
    Chroma AC power source 61500 series is able to provide the highest power density by its superior PWM mode design and the incorporated power factor correction function.

    AC/ DC Output Capability
    Chroma AC power source 61500 series provide output DC component for simulating AC voltage with DC offset condition. It can test the unbalance input current for rectified load. Users also can use an optional DC noise filter to get low noise and good stability DC voltage for testing.

    Comprehensive Measurements
    Chroma AC power source 61500 series has built in a 16-bit measurement circuit and firmware utilities to measure the steady and transient responses of true RMS voltage, current, true power, VA (apparent power), VAR (reactive power), power factor, current crest factor, peak repetitive current and inrush current. Using the advanced DSP technology, it can measure up to 40 orders of current harmonics. It makes 61500 series not only a power source but also a powerful analyzer.

    Power Line Disturbance Simulation
    In addition to the steady output voltage and frequency programming, Chroma AC power source 61500 series provides powerful functions to simulate all kinds of power line disturbance conditions. The STEP and PULSE modes offer an easy and convenient method to execute a single step or continuous output changes. The changes may be triggered by an internal or external event. With this capability, it's easy to simulate power line disturbances such as cycle dropout, transient spike, brown out and etc.

    The LIST Mode extends this function for more complex waveform generator needs. Up to 100 sequences with different start-end conditions, that can perform almost any waveform by AC and DC components. It also allows users to synchronize external events as well as measurement devices with output changes.

    Programmable Output Impedance
    Chroma's 61500 series models allow users to program output impedance. A current feedback control circuit makes the output voltage changed with the load. This feature is suitable for IEC 61000-3-3 Flicker tests or other test condition with particular output impedance requirement. It provides users a convenient and cost effective way to implement the reference impedance.

    3-Phase Mode & Series Connecting For High Voltage Output
    The 61500 series models provide a 3-Phase Mode to let users connect three units for 3-phase output application. Users can set a unit as the Master, and set others the phase angle 120/240 degree as the Slaves. The Master unit will keep on Fixed mode and send a signal for synchronizing Slaves.

    Arbitrary Power Amplifier
    The external voltage programming input of Chroma AC power source 61500 series allows users to feed any AC+DC waveform from an arbitrary signal generator. And amplify the signal accordingly. It can be used to simulate the real mains supply waveforms observed in the field.

    High Output Current Crest Factor & Turn On / Off Phase Angle Control
    Chroma's AC power source 61500 series models are capable of providing high output current crest factor (Max. 6). It delivers sufficient transient power required for testing most of the rectified input type power circuits. The programmable turn on (off) phase angle control makes these AC source units ideal for inrush current test.

    Harmonics, Interharmonics Synthesis
    Traditional type of AC source only allows users to composite integer orders of harmonic components into a periodic harmonics distortion waveform. IEC 61000-4-13 standard requires not only the harmonics waveform, but also interharmonics simulation. This means the fundamental frequency will incorporate with components frequencies between harmonics frequencies. The 61500 series' AC power source models uses advanced DSP technology to synthesis the harmonics and interharmonics waveforms. Therefore, they are capable of generating a non-periodic harmonic distorted waveform to perform IEC 61000-4-13 compliance test with an easy-use software.

    Aerospace Testing Software for AC Power
    With the powerful programming capability, AC power source 61500 series can be used to test aircraft electrical equipment. Chroma also provides software for AC power part test of standard RTCA DO-160D, MIL-STD-704E and ABD0100.
