Using multiple DC1000A DC Current supplles
Each DC1000A can provide 0-25 Amps DC bias to check the saturation performance of the core material.
This can be further extended by using multiple units in parallel with your unit under test.
This works either if you are an AT customer, and wish to control multiple units via the AT test program, or if you wish to use multiple DC1000As with your own LCR meter.
Stacking the units is simple – by connecting the comms on each unit, one becomes the master and controls the other slave units.
Connecting 2 units together would give you the ability to generate 50 Amps, 3 units to give 75 amps and so on.
Please see our following 90 second video, demonstrating the real time automatic measurement of the inductance of a transformer over a range of DC bias current in real time. The simple command set of the DC1000 allows you to control the DC1000 whilst you make measurements with the LCR of your choice.
The below demonstration software controls both the LCR meter and 3 DC1000s over RS232, to perform 11 readings with a DC Bias of 0 Amps to 75 Amps.
