From the 1st January 2001, new EMI legislation will require the measurement of the harmonic current produced by all electronic and electrical equipment. Compliance will be a mandatory part of CE marking.
Compliance quality measurements under the new standard requires that the source supply provides a pure voltage waveform to the equipment under test.
The AC1000 from TTi has been specifically designed for this purpose. It is a 1kW low-distortion AC power supply designed to provide a pure source of mains power for the measurement of current waveform harmonics.
The AC1000 is rated at up to 1000VA for 230V operation. It has a continuous current rating of 4.4A and a peak current rating of 10A. In contrast to products that use a passive filtering approach, the AC1000 actively corrects the AC supply to produce a harmonically pure output.
