Product Announcement from Associated Power Technologies, Inc.

AC Power Source - Model 6040 4 kVA AC Power Source-Image

The 6040 automated AC power source is feature rich and ideal for advanced applications, at a price below the competition. Switch-mode technology and a direct coupled output make this AC power source light weight and efficient for use on the bench-top or in a rack mount. The graphic LCD display provides real-time data on the front panel and the easy-to-use local interface allows operators to get tests up and running quickly. Use the rotary knob to adjust voltage or frequency during testing, adjust the starting or ending phase angle of the output waveform, and simulate the effect of voltage surges and drops on your DUT for transient testing.

With 50 memory locations operators can use one instrument for a variety of testing applications without the need to change parameters before a test. The 6040 AC power source can be controlled with a PC from a variety of different interfaces, including USB/RS-232, GPIB, and Ethernet.
