Agilent introduces basic AC power sources
June 30, 2014. Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced a family of basic AC power sources that deliver stable, reliable power for testing electronic devices during design and manufacturing. The new Agilent AC6800 Series includes four models from 500- to 4000-VA output power.
For simple test applications, electronic device designers and manufacturers may need a basic AC power source to simulate outlet power or global AC power conditions. They may also need to make sure their AC-powered products operate properly when they encounter voltage fluctuations, extreme inrush current, and transient spikes from today’s overburdened power grid. The AC6800 Series basic power sources are suitable for powering devices under test in these situations.
The AC6800 Series basic AC power sources offer intuitive user interfaces that make it easy for engineers to access and view setup and measurement information directly from the front panel or programmatically via SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) commands.
The AC6800 Series sources come standard with LAN/LXI Core and USB interfaces. An optional GPIB interface is also available. The LXI Core interface enables engineers to set up and control the power supplies remotely via a standard Web interface. Users can add an optional analog input board to enable adding basic transient waveforms to their sources.
With its three-year warranty and global support from Agilent, the AC6800 Series lowers the cost of ownership and increases engineers’ confidence in AC source uptime. The Agilent AC6800 basic AC power sources are available now starting at $3,498.
