AC or DC Test Power Re-imagined
The AFX Series is a family of high power, single, split and three phase, AC, DC and AC+DC output capable Power Sources. Available models range from 6 kVA to 90 kVA with available configurations to 150kVA. Using a modern user interface for ease of use, the AFX Series is cost effective and fully programmable for both basic frequency conversion and advanced AC power line or DC power disturbance test applications. The AFX Series offers extended voltage and frequency ranges and standard analog and digital I/O functions.

Single Voltage Range with Constant Power Profile
Traditional AC power sources use two voltage ranges to provide either high voltage or high current. By contrast, the AFX Series uses a unique single voltage range that operates along a constant power curve. This provides more current at low voltages, eliminating the need to switch between voltage ranges and provides a much wider operating range (demonstrated as green in the figure below).
Switching voltage ranges on other AC sources causes the output to be turned off and the EUT to shut down. This makes it difficult to test universal wide input range AC products.
The blue line and green shaded area in the chart shows the additional operating range available compared to a conventional AC power source with a 150V/300V range pair. The same applies to DC mode of operation where a single 425Vdc voltage range is used to provide both high DC current and DC voltage.
