The AMX Series AC power supplies and frequency converters from Pacific Power Source provide accurate AC output voltage. When the AMX Series is enabled, accuracy improves to ±0.03% referenced to the power source internal voltmeter.
The AMX Series feature the Programmable Dynamic Output Impedance that provides the operator with dynamic control over the output impedance of the AC power source. Operators can programme the positive or negative impedance, using the output current term as a conditioned feedback signal to the output voltage circuits.
The Programmable Dynamic Output Impedance simulates and compensates the effects for high peak current, distribution or transformer losses up to ±10% of the output voltage. The Programmable Dynamic Output Impedance feature creates positive, negative or Zero output impedance (Zo). It compensates for line distribution or transformer losses and simulates a soft power line for product testing. The compensation range is ±10% of the output voltage.
The AMX Series store 16 different waveforms in the waveform library for execution as part of a steady state programme or for substitution in any output phase as part of a transient test programme. The memory location #1 is a non-editable high resolution sine wave. Memory locations of 2 to 16 are editable and can be substituted in any output phase.
A number of waveforms can be stored on the computer for those using a programmable UPC. The Waveform Edit feature of the AMX Series can modify a stored waveform by specifying the desired waveform amplitude at each specific phase angle.
The Waveform Analysis feature of the AMX Series provides graphic and numeric displays of a voltage or current waveform in the harmonic structure. The data provided includes the magnitude of each harmonic in percentage, the total harmonic distortion and the odd and even harmonic distortion in percentage.
The Waveform Synthesis of the AMX Series can create the required AC Test Waveform from harmonics. The process of Waveform Synthesis involves keying in the harmonic multiple, the amplitude and the phase angle for each desired harmonic.
The Time-based Transients in the AMX Series AC power supplies and frequency converters can create and execute on command, transients occurring linearly over a specified time segment to modify output voltage or frequency. The Cycle-based Transients of the AMX Series can create and execute substitute transients for a selected waveform in the output for 1 to 100 cycles on command.
