The Ls/Lx Series is a completely improved new product based on the popular California Instruments L Series. Both the Ls and Lx feature many basic AC Source capabilities at a very reasonable price. For more information on either product, please click on the product tab on the right.
The Ls Series is an improved version of the classic California Instruments L Series AC power sources. It provides many basic AC source capabilities at an economical cost. Additional capabilities such as arbitrary waveform generation and harmonic measurements can be added as options. The Ls Series can be ordered in either single phase (-1) or three phase (-3) configurations. Power levels range from 3 kVA to 6 kVA in a single chassis. Multiple chassis can be combined for power levels up to 18 kVA. The Ls Series is completely microprocessor controlled and can be operated from a simple front panel keypad. A pair of analog controls located next to the backlit alphanumeric LCD display allows output voltage and frequency to be slewed up or down dynamically. For more advanced operations, a series of menus is provided using a dual line high contrast LCD display. The Lx Series represents a modern AC power source that addresses increasing demands on test equipment to perform more functions at a lower cost. By combining a flexible AC power source with a high-end harmonic power analyzer, the Lx Series systems are capable of handling applications that would traditionally have required multiple instruments.
The Lx Series is completely microprocessor controlled and can be operated from a simple front panel keypad. A pair of analog controls located next to the backlit alphanumeric LCD display allows output voltage and frequency to be slewed up or down dynamically. With precise output regulation and accuracy, high load drive current, multi or single phase mode and built-in power analyzer measurement capabilities, Lx Series AC source/analyzers address many application areas for AC power testing. Additional features, like line arbitrary waveform generation and available DO 160 or MIL 704 test standards, make the Lx Series a good choice for avionics or defense applications. All Lx Series AC sources are equipped with IEEE-488 (GPIB) and RS232C remote control interfaces and support SCPI command language programming.
