ADX Series

The ADX Series consists of two models, 110ADX and 115ADX. All models share common features and capabilities but at different power levels of 1000VA and 1500VA respectively.  The ADX Series is a reduced feature set version based on the popular ACX Series for customers that are looking or basic voltage and frequency conversion for bench and ATE applications. The ADX represents the most affordable programmable AC Power Sources offered by Pacific Power Source. Despite their compact form factor requiring only 2U of rack space, they pack a powerful punch. All ADX models provide universal AC input connectivity and the most commonly requested programmable features. The ADX Series is targeted at single phase applications.  For more demanding AC Test applications requiring transient generation, arbitrary waveforms and harmonic analysis measurements, refer to the ACX Series instead.

    Power conversion is achieved by high frequency pulse width modulation, resulting in cool, quiet and efficient operation. The ADX Series is ideal for AC test, frequency conversion, laboratory and bench-power applications. Equipped with the UPC-1 programmable controller, the ACX becomes a versatile AC Power Source for many of today's testing needs.

  • AC Test Power

    The ADX Series Power Source uses a reduced function set controller compared to the controllers used in other AC power sources available from Pacific Power Source. It provides the most commonly set of features used for ATE AC power testing of EUT's that require, precise, regulated AC power input at various voltage and frequency combination. Additional measurement equipment such as DMM’s can often be eliminated, saving both cost, rack space and integration time.
    With its wide 15Hz to 600Hz output frequency range and dual voltage range to 300VAC rms, it supports railway, commercial and single phase 400Hz avionics applications.

    Frequency/Voltage Conversion for Lab Use

    Due to its compact size and higher current output capability, the ADX's are excellent sources of stable AC voltage over the frequency range of 15 to 600 Hz. The output frequency is quartz-crystal stabilized. Output voltages up to 300 VAC are provided.
    Bench use as an easy to use frequency converter in a lab environment is facilitated by its front panel universal output socket and simple to operate front panel with 4 line backlit LCD display.

    ATE Applications

    With its compact form factor requiring only 2U (3.5”) rack space and its high power density, the ADX is ideally suited for a wide range of automated test systems that require precision AC power output to the unit under test without additional features that would go unused.

    Using the same bus command syntax and instrument drivers as the widely used ACX, ASX and AMX Series power source, the ADX Series uses the same instrument drivers and can be integrated quickly. The universal AC input allows test stations equipped with ADX units to be deployed anywhere in the world.

    ADX Controller Applications

    The ACX-Series uses a simplified UPC-1 single phase controller compared to Pacific Power Models with the full features UPC-1 controller but is fully software compatible with entire line of Pacific Power Source products. The same unit can be used in manual control mode from the front panel or remotely using standard RS232 interface or optional GPIB.
