Q. What are the advantages of APT’s 300XAC modular power sources?
A. APT’s 300XAC series of modular AC power sources can be connected in series, parallel or poly-phase modes with up to 2 other instruments. Series mode allows operators to increase the systems total output power up to 18 kVA. Parallel mode allows the operator to increase the system’s output voltage up to 600VAC and also increases the total current output. Poly-phase mode allows 3 modular AC power sources to be connected for 3 phase output requirements up to 6kVA per phase.

Q. What type of protection circuits do APT products utilize?
A. APT instruments feature a variety of circuits that protect the operator, DUT and instrument. Our OCP (over current protection) feature is a high speed shut down circuit that disables the instrument’s output if the output current is too high. Our OTP (over temperature protection) feature is a high speed shut down circuit that disables the instrument’s output if the temperature becomes too high. Our OVP (over voltage protection) feature is a high speed shut down circuit that disables the instrument’s output if the output voltage increases to unsafe levels.
