B&K Precision 9800 Series Programmable AC Power Sources

B&K Precision 9800 Series Programmable AC Power Sources are both programmable AC sources and measurement tools. These linear AC sources are fully programmable and produce 1500VA maximum through their universal line output terminals on the front and the output connectors on the rear. The 9800 series has an output range of 0 to 300V with 0.1V programming resolution. The output frequency can also be adjusted from 45Hz to 500Hz with start and stop phase angle from 0 to 360 degrees. The bright VFD display shows Vrms, Irms, Ipeak, frequency, power factor (PF), apparent power, true power, and elapsed output time. B&K Precision 9800 series is capable of providing a power line disturbance (PLD) simulator, list mode, and sweep mode for simulation of common power grid faults and disturbances. Motors and LEDs can be tested with the built-in dimmer function.
