Chroma Programmable AC Power Source
61600 series delivers pure, instrument grade
AC power at very low cost. The 61600 series
supplies the output voltage from 0 to 300VAC,
and frequency from 15 to 1000Hz. It is
suitable for commercial, avionics, and military
applications from bench-top testing to mass
The 61600 series generates very clean
AC output with distortion less than 0.3%
at 50/60Hz. With the state-of-the-art PWM
technology and power factor correction circuit,
the 61600 series yields higher efficiency and
delivers more output power. The 61600 series
is capable of delivering up to 6 times of peak
current compared to its maximum rated current
that makes it ideal for inrush current test.
The AC+DC modes extend the applications not
only pure AC voltage but also DC component
for testing DC offset in laboratory. Users also
can use an optional DC noise filter to get low
noise and good stability DC voltage for testing.
Applying the advanced DSP technology, the
61600 series is able to provide precision and
high speed measurements such as RMS
voltage, RMS current, true power, frequency,
power factor, and current crest factor.
The 61600 series also provides an external
analog input to amplify the analog signal from
arbitrary signal generator. Thus, it is capable
of simulating the unique waveform which
observed in the field. Users also can control the
amplitude of output voltage by a DC level. It is
suitable to integrate Chroma AC source 61600
series into users' system.
For convenience sake, the 61600 series offers
versatile front panel operations with LCD
display and rotary knob. Users may also control
the 61600 series AC source remotely via
GPIB, RS232C or APG (Analog Programming)
interface. Users can find Labview driver in NI's
web site for programming.
The power-on self-diagnosis routine along with
the full protections against OPP, OCP, OVP
and OTP ensure the quality and reliability for
the most demanding engineering tests and ATS

1. Slew rate of voltage and frequency
Chroma Programmable AC Power Source 61600 Series use DSP technology to program voltage waveform. Users can change the voltage or
frequency in only one step. Or users can set the slew rate to get a gradual increase or decrease of voltage and frequency. It can help users easily
to test the power input range of their products, for example, 90V-264V/47Hz-63Hz.
2. One-key recall mode
Chroma Programmable AC Power Source 61600 Series allows users to save 9 various voltage and frequency. Users can recall the value by only
pressing "1" to "9" key. It can help testers or manufacture operators easily to change voltage or frequency for some fixed test conditions.
