Power Booster for High Current Testing:
200, 400, and 1000 Ampere Heating Currents
Power Boosters are available to extend the heating current range above the maximum 10 or 20 amp level of the stand-alone Thermal Analyzers. The Power Booster includes its own DC heating supply and is controlled by the Thermal Analyzer using the same software and user-interface controls for all steady state and transient test methods. From the operator's perspective, using the Power Booster simply involves a change in the wires (cables) used for heating power delivery. It can be used for all device types normally tested by the Thermal Analyzers but more typically for diodes, IGBTs, MOSFETS, and Thyristors.
The Power Booster features safe and convenient twist-lock high-current panel connectors with ultra-flexible cables for power-delivery to the device under test. All connectors are color-coded and keyed for polarity to prevent mistakes in setup. All necessary cables and interface connections up to the device fixture and AC power link are included.
Power Boosters are rated by maximum steady state heating current capacity and also offer surge testing capabilities with a variety of programmable surge sequences. The 200A Booster is air cooled whereas the 400A and 1000A Boosters are liquid cooled.
1000 Ampere Power Booster:
- Designed for convenient in-house calibration
- Standard and custom fixturing for various power-devices
- Compatible with all existing Analysis Tech test fixtures
- Included cable set (2 meters) for connection to Device Under Test
- Complete instructions and warranty
