Kikusui America releases new PCR-WE/WE2 Series and avionics test software

KIKUSUI AMERICA has recently announced a new AC power supply series that coincides with the company's new test avionics software offering.

Pcr We We2 Series (2)KIKUSUI AMERICA has launched its PCR-WE/WE2 series of multifunctional switching AC power supplies that combines accurate, high power output and ultra-compact design. The 15 model line-up ranges from 1 kVA to 36 kVA AC/DC with single & 3 phase variable output from 6 kVA and up. The PCR-WE/WE2 also features a regenerative mode*1 that can drastically reduce power consumption and cut the costs of operation. The PCR-WE/WE2 also supports mix-and-match parallel operation*2 up to 144 kVA for large scale test systems. Output frequency up to 5 kHz is also available with all models for critical AC applications in the avionic industries. Find much more information about the PCR-WE/WE2 series here.

KIKUSUI’s “Avionics Test Software” is an application software that supports airborne equipment power input compliance tests. Through controlling the AC/DC power supply with this software, it enables the user to conduct the test standards for the MIL-STD-704 (A, E, and F). Test patterns are library-based, which enables tests to be easily run by simply selecting the wiring configuration and the type of test.

Benefits for the Software

● Covers most AC tests (SAC, TAC, SVF, TVF, SXF) and DC tests (HDC, LDC).

● Simple operation to execute test sequences

● Controlling power supply and monitor output via software

● Easy to create your original testing sequences.

● DO-160 AC/DC power quality tests are also contained in single software


*1: Only "R" models (PCR-WE2R) with 3-phase 200 V input. For regeneration within the installation site only. 
*2: Parallel operation is available for 6 kVA models and up with a maximum of 4 units. Same model combination is not required. Up to 48 kVA per phase.
