AE Techron Introduces Switch-mode Amplifier Line with a DC-to-50 kHz Bandwidth, up to 100 kVA Output
8500 Series Amplifiers Excel when Operating into Reactive Loads
By: AE Techron, Inc.
In addition, the 8500 series offers low-distortion operation that approaches the performance levels found in linear amplifier designs. The line is capable of AC voltages from 0 to 277 V RMS, and maximum continuous output current ranges among models from 60A to 300A. Like all PWM designs, the 8500 series provides high-efficiency operation in a light-weight, cost-effective package.
Larry Shank, AE Techron President, explains: "The amplifier's conservative design allows it to reprocess power returned from reactive loads to achieve apparent power that is up to 5X rated power. This, coupled with its ability to operate at frequencies of up to 50 kHz, provides a solution for many of the difficult test applications found in the EV Vehicle compliance and life testing. It is a big improvement over traditional solutions for driving the large Piezo arrays found in sonar and is also great for conducted immunity testing of virtually any electronic system that has capacitive-based energy storage in its power supply. The capabilities presented by the 8500 series of amplifiers is unique among switch-mode amplifiers available today."
The 8500 Series models range in size from a 3U, single-phase, bench top model to mini rack systems. All models offer easy, in-field configuration of user controls including current limit, operation mode, output impedance and amplifier gain via back-panel switches.
