AC Power Sources for R&D and Power Test Solutions

New product design brings many challenges for manufacturers today as the world marketplace presents a wide variety of AC power grids. In addition to the many variations of power, the stability of that power is not always consistent at different locations.
Pacific’s AC power sources allow engineers to design for these conditions.
Whether you want consistent precision power from day to day or need to simulate a wide variety of power line disturbances, Pacific Power Source can work with you to define your AC power solution.
Pacific Power Source provides a wide variety of AC Power Source solutions for today’s commercial, industrial, military and government research and design laboratories, both domestically and internationally. Pacific Power Source’s AC power solutions enable you to design and test your product’s AC power specifications. Whether you need a stable AC power test bed or you want to see how your product reacts to simulated harmonics conducted on the AC power line, one of Pacific’s AC Power Sources could work for you. If you need a table top or laboratory grade product, Pacific Power Source’s LSX or LMX series offer solutions for both Single and Three phase operation. Facility type applications benefit from the ADF Series or MS Series for your bulk power needs.
  • Pacific Power Source’s extensive variety of AC power solutions have been used in:
  • Power Grid Simulation
  • Circuit breaker test systems
  • Watt-hour meter test systems
  • Lighting ballast test systems
  • Aerospace system tests (DO-160, MIL-STD-704, EUROCAE 14D, etc.)
  • Appliance tests and burn-in
  • Compliance test to the EU’s AC power requirements (EN 61000-3-2, EN 61000-3-3, EN 61000-4-11 pre-compliance)

Flexible Manufacturing Test Solutions

Manufacturing Test – Often products are used at a different voltage and frequency from the country in which they are produced. This creates a need to convert both voltage and frequency on a production line.
Pacific Power Source AC products are used worldwide to supply the voltage and frequency needed by any given product requiring AC Power. Stable voltage and frequency are also required to minimize the rejection of a product due to poor power conditions in a factory. Our products provide a stable output while the input voltage or frequency can vary +/-10%. This provides the assurance that a product did not fail due to a low-voltage line in your facility.
To ensure product test coverage, we offer a wide variety of available voltage and frequency ranges to support extensive limit testing of products for immunity to line voltage and frequency variations that are often found in locations around the world. Rigorous immunity testing can greatly reduce product warranty costs and avoid customer dissatisfaction. Please visit the ADF Series and MS Series pages for further information on each product series.
Life test is also a critical need for manufacturers in testing their product’s use over time. A consistent voltage and frequency provide a stable environment where product failures are due to something other than a fluctuation in power.

To ensure product quality, both design and production test coverage are of paramount importance. Pacific’s AC power sources easily transition from engineering development to production use as products move through their product life cycle. That means test software developed during product design can be transferred meet to production test requirements easily as our remote control programming syntax is standardized between AC power source platforms and backward compatibility with some of our legacy products is built in to our newer generations of power source controllers.
