AMETEK Programmable Power, Inc. Key Developments

AMETEK Programmable Power Launches AsterionTM AC/DC Power Platform with Current-Doubling iX2TM Technology

AMETEK Programmable Power has introduced a new AC and DC power platform that establishes new industry benchmarks in power density, performance, and ease of use. AMETEK's initial platform launch is for its California Instruments AsterionTM AC Power Source, available in 500VA, 750VA and 1,500 VA power levels. AMETEK has long been known for supplying power sources with power density. The Asterion is no exception with up to 1,500 VA in a 1U (44.45mm/1.75in) height package; that is two to three times the power density of comparable, competitive power sources. At the heart of Asterion's breakthrough performance is AMETEK's powerful new iX2(TM) current-doubling technology. With iX2, as the output voltage decreases from maximum to one-half maximum, Asterion's available output current increases up to two times the rated output current. That allows Asterion to maintain maximum power throughout the voltage range, making it unmatched in delivering full output power over such a wide voltage range. In addition, iX2 current-doubling technology eliminates a common need to buy multiple sources or overpowered sources to run tests at different voltage levels, such as when performing low line voltage testing. Other unique platform benefits are Auto-Paralleling and Clock/Lock to achieve higher output power and multi-phase configuration. Users can combine up to six units to achieve 9,000 VA per phase of output power. One unit becomes the master while the rest serve as auxiliary units. System setup can be accomplished using a single front panel or digital interface. Multi-phase systems can be configured for split-phase, three-phase, or even higher phase count requirements.

AMETEK Programmable Power Introduces the Sorensen ASD FLX Series with New Modular Design That Allows Easy Access and Flexible Voltage Assignments

AMETEK Programmable Power introduced the Sorensen ASD FLX Series with a new modular design that allows easy access and flexible voltage assignments. The water-cooled ASD FLX Series, which offers power density (30 kW in a 3U form factor), can now accommodate up to three front-loading modules that can be configured for either 60V or 40V operation (other voltages coming soon) via convenient rear panel dip switches. Despite its 3U size, the ASD FLX's light-weight chassis allows for easy one-person installation. The new modular Sorensen ASD FLX Series provides excellent load transient response with outstanding output ripple and noise specifications. Load regulation for both voltage and current is 0.1% of full scale, and the maximum RMS noise is 40 mV. A 50% step load will recover to within 0.75% of original value within 1 ms. Programmable filter bandwidth of the output voltage, current and power monitors lets users customize the load response to their applications. The unit's water-cooled design makes it ideal for harsh or demanding applications with stringent air quality requirements, such as clean rooms or industrial environments that are dirty or potentially corrosive and damaging to air-cooled power supplies. Optional advanced features of the ASD FLX also allow users to program different fault levels enabling detection of output cabling, connections or load problems before they cause critical system problems. Its factory flight data recorder feature has the ability to record parameters such as voltage, current, power, load impedance, faults and input voltages, allowing the factory to easily determine why a user has had an unexpected outcome. With its advanced digital monitoring and control features and flexible voltage assignment modules, combined with power density and reliability, the Sorensen ASD FLX is the power supply of choice for stringent and high-value processes and applications.
