DC Bias Testing Made Simple

To guarantee the quality and performance of inductive components, they are always best tested under real-life conditions

The DC1000A gives you a flexible test solution for both research and development, and outgoing product test

If an inductor is designed to carry a DC current, then the AC inductance must be measured with this DC Bias current applied.
This then confirms that the core does not saturate under these bias currents, and gives the designed inductance over its operating range.
Until now, these measurements were made by an LCR meter connected via special interfacing to a DC bias supply available only from the manufacturer of the LCR.
The unique DC1000A can be used with any precision LCR meter and connects simply into your existing test fixturing.
It can also be easily integrated with our AT Automatic Transformer Testers for fully comprehensive quality control.
Multiple units can be stacked in parallel to broaden the current range even further.
