With the goal of testing electronic devices during the design, service, and manufacturing phases, the 9830 Series of programmable, single-phase AC power sources can deliver up to 3000 VA, with an operating frequency of 1200 Hz. Developed by B&K Precision, a manufacturer of test and measurement equipment, the instrument gives designers a versatile test platform for developing products requiring a wider range of power.
The series includes the 9832 with AC power of 2000 VA, and the 3000-VA 9833. Typical applications include R&D laboratories, service centers, and manufacturing facilities. Both instruments deliver accurate sine output with low total harmonic distortion (THD) when operating in AC output mode. Their built-in output options include sine, square, clip-sine, harmonic distortion, and user-defined waveforms.
The power sources can simulate power-line disturbances and worldwide power requirements. In addition, their 12 on-screen measurements (on a 4.3-in. color LCD) provide detailed information about the device under test. The AC+DC mode can provide DC bias voltage and is useful for power-line disturbance testing. Both instruments support remote-interface standards common in system designs, including LAN, GPIB, USB, and RS232.
Available immediately, the 9832 and 9833 AC power sources sell for $6450 and $7650, respectively.
