The new Industrial Power Corruptor (IPC) from Power Standards Laboratories is a new solution for testing the performance of electrical devices, including process and machine control instrumentation and systems.
The power disturbance generator allows rigorous testing of electrical gear in plants, including protection gear, industrial plant, process and machine control instrumentation and systems, under various conditions of power quality.
The IPC is interposed between a source of clean power and the device to be tested, adding calibrated voltage sags, swells, and interruptions. It can be connected to single-phase and three-phase power utilising voltages from 100V to 480V, and with line currents to 200 amps for mains power frequencies of 50 and 60 Hz.
The IPC will generate true phase-to phase voltage sags and swells (without a neutral being required), from 0 per cent to 125 per cent of nominal, from 200 µSec to 30 seconds as well as voltage sags and swells with respect to a neutral conductor.
The built-in data acquisition system includes a 28-channel digital scope, and optionally a complete harmonic and power flow analyser. The IPC is well suited to current inrush testing and standards compliance, including SEMI F47, IEC 61000-4-11, 61000-4-34, CBEMA, ITIC, IEEE-1100, and more.
