Pacific Power Source Introduces New AFX Series Programmable AC & DC Power Sources

All new digital control architecture enables unprecedented packaging density with no compromise in performance

Irvine, California, April 5th, 2016 — Pacific Power Source announces the release of its all new AFX Series programmable AC, DC & AC+DC Power source family. AFX models are available in power levels ranging from 9kVA to 60kVA. All models are based on a proprietary, all-digital, power conversion technology platform that supports a set of formerly unavailable features and capabilities used in programmable power sources.  This includes a direct-coupled output that allows for AC output, DC output or AC+DC combined output modes.

All AFX models feature active power corrected AC inputs with a wide input voltage range that may be deployed anywhere in the world. Voltage, waveform, current, power, phase and frequency are all programmable and with 99 non-volatile setups that can be stored for quick recall as part of a test protocol, reducing remote control overhead.

Other features and capabilities include a 15Hz to 1200Hz frequency range, single 300VRMS constant power mode voltage range, programmable RMS or DC and peak current limit functions, and compatibility with Pacific Power’s UPC Studio Windows control software. 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 all-digital design allows a 15kVA AFX unit to occupy no more than 4U of rack space, making it well suited to upgrade legacy power test cabinets where additional power is required without consuming the additional space demanded by conventional AC power sources.

Pacific Power’s National Sales Manager, Eric Lord, was quoted as saying: “This new, incredibly compact yet cost-effective AFX Series provides an economical solution for our customers seeking to upgrade their power test equipment without compromising on performance or quality.” He continues: “The AFX power sources offer a broad range of features and full programmability for both bench use and for ATE applications.”

AFX models will be available for deliveries starting in July. For more information on the new AFX Series, visit Pacific Power Source’s web site at To discuss your AC power needs with one of our application specialists, please call us at (949) 251-1800, or email
