Zenone GI Precision Programmable AC Current Sources


High Current AC Current Sources

Current generators of the GI Series are static sources of AC constant current. Models up to 50kA/1000kVA for continuous or pulse operation make up one of the largest ranges of 1- and 3-phase system available today on the market.

 

Current generators of the GI Series supply a very stable AC current at a variable frequency from 40 to 200Hz. Up to three current ranges per unit are provided, with manual or automatic selection. Equipped with a modern and easy to use front panel interface with a large LCD display, the controllers of the GI Series offer advanced capabilities for current test applications.

 

Standard low power units are built into 19” racks or table cases. High power units are built into 19” cabinets on wheels.

 

Ideally suited for lab applications (R&D), the GI Series finds a great role in final product testing. Remote control is via the standard isolated RS232 and RS485, or optional USB, LAN, and Fiber Optic Interfaces. Analog inputs (Booster inputs) are available as well and allow the units to be used as current amplifiers using external analog signals. They can for example be used as amplifier to reproduce arbitrary current waveforms. In addition, eight Digital inputs/outputs allow finally the GI Series to be perfectly integrated in manufacturing lines.

 

Specially developed for the test of circuit breakers, the GI Series is equipped with a sequencer and timer, allowing to set current and test time and measuring accurately the trip time with a resolution up to 1ms. Different modes like ramp, drop out and loop are available in order to create test program and sequences following norms or custom manufacturer procedures.
