More

The UPS/Inverter Test System or UPS Test System, model 5500, is a turn-key, high performance, universal test platform which is ideal for testing power supplies with AC outputs typically found in uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) and inverters.

A wide range of AC and DC stimulus instrumentation combined with advanced measurement capabilities make the 5500 test system an ideal solution for the enterprise requiring the most flexibility in test capability.

Advanced Digital Measurement Capabilities

The core component of this system is the Digital Measurement System (DMS), which features a 2×16, 100 MHz multiplexer combined with 2 waveform digitizers. In addition to the higher bandwidth, the DMS provides highly accurate channel-channel timing measurements and corresponding waveform displays. Should more than 16-input measurement channels be required, multiple 15-input expansion chassis can be added to the system.

Many Packaging Choices

While the single-bay shown in the above picture is the most popular configuration, two and three-bay systems including higher power and 3rd-party instrumentation are able to be customized to the customers’ requirements.
