DC1000A for Magnetics Design and Characterization
Accurate and programmable, the DC1000A is also a great design tool.
When coupled up to an LCR meter, the DC1000A's free PC Software helps designers to validate and optimize designs by plotting the magnetic saturation characteristic of either the complete transformer or samples of the core material.
The magnetic materials that form the core of transformers, chokes and other inductive components must operate under a wide range of operating conditions.
The actual size and shape of the core and the proximity of the windings, as well as the magnetizing force supplied by the current, will all influence the performance of the part during operation.
Unlike simple spot checks, the complete magnetization characteristic reveals to designers the true margin between the core's operating point and its theoretical saturation.
View this short video to see how the PC software controls multiple DC1000As and an LCR meter to provide real insight into magnetic core behaviour so that magnetics designs can be properly verified and optimized.
