B&K Precision 9832B AC Power Source

2000 VA Programmable AC Power Source with 3-Phase Capability

The 9830B Series programmable AC power sources provide high performance and low total harmonic distortion in a 3U form factor. The addition of positive and negative DC offset voltages expands the AC capabilities to operate in DC and AC+DC output coupling modes. The user can select built-in and user-defined harmonic waveforms or select from standard sine, square or clipped sine outputs.

3-Phase power can be achieved by connecting 3 units of the same model in a master and slave configuration using the optional 3-Phase sync adapters. The frequency range is adjustable from 45 to 600 Hz in 3-phase mode.
