We have just added two new higher-power models to our Asterion™ line of AC power sources:
- The Asterion 4503 supplies AC and DC output power up to 4,500 VA or 4,500 W;
- The Asterion 6003 supplies up to 6,000 VA or 6,000 W.
Both units come in a 4U chassis, and can supply single or three phase output power. Like the other models in our Asterion series, the 4503 and 6003 offer a compelling combination of intelligence, performance, and modularity that make them the most adaptable and affordable platform available today. These features include:
- AMETEK’s iX2™ current-doubling technology. With iX2, as the output voltage decreases from the maximum value to one-half the maximum value, the available output current increases up to two times the rated output current. This allows Asterion to maintain maximum power through the widest range of voltages. iX2 current-doubling technology eliminates the need to buy multiple sources or overpowered sources to run tests at different voltage levels, such as when performing low line voltage testing.
- AC and DC output voltage ranges up to 400 Vac and 500 Vdc. Load and line regulation are +/-0.025% and +/-0.015%, respectively. This makes the Asterion more versatile and accurate than most other AC power sources available today.
