9830 Series

Programmable AC Power Sources up to 3000 VA

Model 9832

MSRP $6,450 / 3 Yr Warranty
Where to Buy

The 9830 Series programmable AC power sources provide high performance and low total harmonic distortion in a 3U form factor. The addition of positive and negative DC offset voltages expands the AC capabilities to operate in DC and AC+DC output coupling modes. The user can select built-in and user-defined harmonic waveforms or select from standard sine, square or clipped sine outputs. The high output current crest factor and low input resistance are suitable for high inrush current measurements when evaluating capacitive or inductive loads.

Features & Benefits

  • AC, DC and AC+DC power source
  • Low total harmonic distortion meets the IEC 61000-3-2 standard
  • Comprehensive measurements Vrms, Arms, Vdc, +Apk, -Apk, inrush current, Hz, power factor, apparent power, reactive power, true power, and crest factor
