Pacific Power Source returned to the Automotive Test Expo this year to showcase, for the very first time, its powerful new AC and DC power source. This year’s show opened to an even bigger crowd of automotive test engineers and exhibitors than the year before, illustrating the growing importance of testing and validation of increasingly complex electronic and power systems on board vehicles. With the recent slew of quality recalls experienced by several leading car makers, the importance of quality through design verification and testing cannot be overstated. That was clearly the message at this year’s expo as well.

Attendees of the Automotive Test Expo watch a demonstration of the new AFX Series AC & DC Power Source from Pacific Power.

To help test engineers accomplish this, Pacific Power introduced its all new AFX Series power source, capable of providing programmable AC, DC & AC+DC Power for design and test applications. Models range for 9kW to 60kW in power output. Special available test software supports compliance testing conform OEM DC and AC power test protocols that can easily be programmed on the AFX. All this capability is easily controlled by the user through an intuitive front panel with a large full-color LCD display. For ATE applications, the AFX offers a LAN interface with LXI compliance and IVI instrument drivers.

The new products attracted a lot of interest from expo attendees who are facing higher output power sources due to the ever increasing electrification of vehicles.
