When choosing a power source, it is important to determine the type of testing being done at your facility. There are several types of power sources, including a multi-phase power source. Simply put, this power source provides the power generation, transmission and distribution. So what are a few of the features of this unique power source?
Features of a Multi-Phase Power Supply
These types of power supplies provide multiple levels of functionality and remain fairly economical. The reason is that three conductors each carry an alternating current with similar frequencies but different phases. Thus, each conductor is reaching their peak within a third of one of the others. As a result, there is a constant transfer of power that created a balanced load.
These power sources can be customized to reach high voltages but maintain the balanced load that makes them economical to run in a variety of testing and industrial facilities. There applications vary from military to private commerce, including airplane manufacturing.
Choosing the Best Power Supply
It is important to make sure that you work with a supplier that can customize your power supply to meet your needs. In addition, you want to be sure that they provide the necessary interfaces that allow your workstations to talk with the power supply and your other testing equipment.
The reason it is best to get the interfaces at the same time you order your power supply is to insure the compatibility between the two components and thus, optimal performance from your system. Depending on the type of system, you will also need to determine any interfaces needed to connect your power supply to other components that are part of your testing facilities, including amplifiers and output transformers.
However, you choose to set up your system, it is important to work with your supplier so they know the items that will be needed. They can then provide any necessary guidance about customization to make your system work better for you and your company in the long run. They can also answer any questions you may have about warranties and customer support hours. Working with your supplier, you can find the multi-phase power source that works best for your system.
Amp-Line provides a variety of power sources, power supplies and amplifiers. They also can customize a multi-phase power source to suit various testing and manufacturing facilities.
