Product Family Overview

Ametek / Elgar AT8000 / AT8000A / AT8000B Programmable DC Power Supply System

Features
  • High-Density Programmable Multi-Ouput Power Supply System
  • GPIB (IEEE-488) Interface
  • Full ATE Qualified - MATE & CIIL Programmability
  • Programmable Current, Voltage w/ Remote Sense Terminals
  • Integrated Output Relay and also Independent SCR Crowbar for Rapid Grounding (Discharge)

Description

The Ametek / Elgar AT8000 / AT8000A / AT8000B programmable multi-output DC power system accepts both power supply and electronic load modules simultaneously in a single high density 5-1/4" mainframe. Up to six fully independent channels of linear DC power and/or DC loads can be accommodated in one 19" wide rackmount chassis. The system can be expanded to 16 channels in master/ expansion chassis configurations. It can be controlled either locally from the front-panel keyboard or remotely via IEEE-488 GPIB using one selectable bus address. With the built-in test option, readback capability is available for voltage and current readings on DC power modules, Auxiliary Drive Modules (ADM) and electronic DC loads.

Six 200W DC power supply modules and/or 300W electronic loads can fit into one 5-1/4" mainframe. By paralleling power modules, a single chassis can deliver up to 1200W. Up to 16 independent channels of DC power can be controlled on a single selectable GPIB address for up to 19.2 kW in a multi-chassis system.

Built-in programming/communication languages of ABLE (Atlas Based Language Extension) (AT8000A and AT8000B) and CIIL (Control Interface Intermediate Language) (AT8000A) for MATE applications provides complete voltage, current and general system control via the IEEE-488 GPIB. Atlas Based Language Extension (ABLE) provides simple, easy to use mnemonics for concise programming. Control Interface Intermediate Language (CIIL) conforms to U.S. Air Force MATE guidelines.

DC Power Modules
DC modules employ a highly efficient linear design for fast response time and low ripple. Several standard voltage ranges are available. Outputs are completely isolated and all modules operate in constant voltage or constant current mode. Overcurrent sensing and overvoltage protection with SCR crowbar shutdown are standard, as well as load isolation (confidence) relays. Polarity switching relays are optional.

Electronic DC Load Modules
300W electronic DC load modules for the AT 8000A simulate real-world characteristics for testing, evaluation and burn-in of DC power supplies. They can be used to load DC power sources in any one of four primary operational modes. The four modes are constant current, constant voltage, constant resistance and transient operation. The individual 300W load modules can be paralled for up to 1800W per chassis. With programmable slew rates, the loads automatically duplicate the dynamic behavior of real-world load conditions.

AT8000A is a standard unit, while the AT8000B is CE listed/registered.

If you are interested in an AT8000A with a different configuration than the systems listed, contact us and we will see if it is possible to build your request with our available modules.
