The Compact iX Series represents a new generation of AC/DC power sources that address the increasing demands on test equipment to perform additional functions at a lower cost. By combining a flexible AC/DC power source with a high performance power analyzer, the Compact iX Series is capable of handling complex applications that have traditionally required multiple systems.
The sleek integrated approach of the Compact iX Series avoids cable clutter that is commonly found in test systems. All connections are made internally and the need for digital multimeters, power harmonics analyzers, and current shunts or clamps is eliminated.
Since many components in the Compact iX Series are shared between the AC/DC source and the power analyzer, the total cost of the integrated system is less than the typical cost of a multiple unit system.
For less demanding applications, the Compact i Series provides similar output and transient capabilities as the Compact iX Series, as well as basic power measurements.
