The PCR4000M, a 4kW variable frequency AC power supply, has been made available by Kikusui’s UK Distributor Telonic Instruments. The power supply expands Kikusui’s exisiting PCR500M, PCR1000M, PCR2000M and PCR4000M variable frequency (40-500Hz) AC power supplies.
The PCR4000M features AC, DC and AC+DC output, memory function, current limit and selectable start phase. Users are able to measure not only voltage, current and power of the AC and DC output, but also apparent power, reactive power, power factor, crest factor and current peak hold. Equipped with an RS-232C interface, the device comes complete with control/logging software as standard.
A number of options are available including GPIB, USB and an analogue input card which allows the frequency converters to be used as power amplifiers. Applications for the PCR4000M include avionics testing (400Hz 115VAC for seating, cabin electronics and audio visual products), measuring power factor on LED lighting and power adapter testing to simulate real world power conditions.
The PCR500/1000/2000M and 4000M are available for both purchase and hire from Telonic Instruments.
