4301 Series: Complete solution for DC voltage variations and transients testing

4301 Series Telecom Test System

4301 Series

Telecom Test Systems

  • Complete solution for GR-1089 Section 10 and ATIS-0600315.2007 DC Voltage Variations and Transients Testing
  • Designed to work with a standard arbitrary waveform generator or signal source that can be triggered
  • Optional Fluke 281 AWG comes pre-programmed and integrated into the 4301 system
  • Four selectable compensation settings
  • Cabinet design allows for additional customization

Key Performance Capabilities:

  • Slew rates up to 60 V/µsec.
  • Up to 240A DC at +50VDC or –50VDC (4301-240 configuration).
  • Can provide pulses of up to 800 amps at voltages of up to ±100V (4301-240 configuration).
  • Adjustable compensation allows the system to maintain a 50V/2 µsec rise-time over a wide range of current outputs.

The 4301 Series Telecom Test Systems have been specially designed for EMC testing of network telecommunications equipment and are the best systems available for producing the waveforms required for transient voltage measurements as described in GR-1089 Section 10 and ATIS-0600315.2007.

The 4301 is designed to work with a standard arbitrary wave form generator or signal source that can be triggered. The system can be ordered with an optional Fluke 281 arbitrary waveform generator, which comes pre-programmed and integrated into the 4301 system. When equipped with the Fluke 281 option, the 4301 provides a complete solution for GR-1089 Section 10/ATIS-0600315.2007 testing.

The 4301 system is available in four standard configurations and is capable of slew rates of up to 60 V/µsec. In its largest configuration (model 4301-240), the 4301 system can provide up to 240A of DC at ±50VDC and can provide pulses of up to 800 amps at voltages of up to ± 100V. The system has a voltage gain of 20 and can accept input voltages of up to ±10V.

The system cabinets have been designed with space and power provisions for the installation of other electronics, if desired.

Lower power versions of the 4301 amplifier solution are available for users with lower current requirements: 4301-180 (180A), 4301-120 (120A) and 4301-60 (60A).

Indicators and Controls

Theunit's indicators and controls are located on the 4301 amplifier modules. The 4301 models contain between one and four amplifier modules.

LED Displays: Indicators for Run, Ready, Standby, and Stop status, and Fault conditions in the output stage.
LCD Display:Can be user-configured for up to four simultaneous displays reporting one, two, or all four of the following: Voltage Peak, Voltage RMS, Current Peak and Current RMS. When the amplifier module is in a Fault condition, the LCD Display lists the type of fault condition and gives suggested corrective action.
Navigation Buttons:The Navigation Buttons provide four arrow keys to allow navigation through the various LCD display options.
Soft Touch Switches: Soft touch switches allow the selection of Run (Enable), Stop and Reset functions.
Compensation Setting: A four-position rotary control allows the selection of optimum compensation settings according to the total current required at the system output.
Compensation LEDs: When the amplifier module is receiving AC power, the colored LED associated with the selected Compensation setting will be lit.

Inputs and Outputs

The unit's inputs and outputs are located on the cabinet's front panel.

Signal Input: A BNC connector accepts input from an arbitrary waveform generator.
External Trigger Output: A BNC connector provides the signal to the Trigger In connector on the AWG.
Current Monitor Output: A BNC connector provides scaled voltage output for current monitoring.
Voltage Monitor Output: A BNC connector provides scaled voltage output for voltage monitoring.
Signal Output: 250A Pin Plug connectors (or optional Anderson SB350 connectors) provide signal output to the equipment under test.

Options

AWG Option: A Fluke 281 AWG can be integrated into the 4301 system. The optional AWG comes pre-programmed with the required test waveforms and is mounted securely within the 4301 cabinet. A GPIB port located next to the AWG on the system front panel allows communication with the AWG through a user-supplied computer.
SB350 Outputs Option: Anderson SB350 output connectors can be substituted for the standard 250A Pin Plug connectors.
Customization: A pre-wired, single-phase auxiliary outlet box is provided on all systems. The 4301-240, 4301-180 and 4301-120 systems also are configured with space for additional customer customization, if desired.

Protection

Fault: The Fault LED on an amplifier module will light and the error message "Warning! Output Device Fault" will be displayed on the LCD screen if the module’s output stage stops operating. If this happens, contact AE TECHRON for servicing information.
AC Under/Over Voltage Protection: If the AC line voltage rises or drops more than10% of the nominal operating voltage, the system will be forced to Standby and the error message "Warning! Overvoltage" will be displayed on the LCD screen of the amplifier module(s).
Over Current: Each amplifier module contains breaker protection on both the unit’s main power supply and the low-voltage supplies. The 4301 system provides a Main Power breaker switch and an Auxiliary Power breaker switch located inside the cabinet rear door.
Over Temperature: Each amplifier module contains separate output transistor, heat-sink and transformer temperature monitoring and protection circuits.

Physical Characteristics

Cabinet: Welded steel cabinet with a textured black, powder-coat finish.
Main Power: A main power selector located on the system front panel controls the main power supply to the system (4301-240, 4301-180, and 4301-120 systems only).

Operating Temperature: 10°C to 50°C (50°F to 122°F), Maximum Output Power de-rated above 30°C (86°F).)
Humidity: 70% or less, non-condensing.
Cooling: The 4301 system amplifier modules employ forced air-cooling from front to back through removable filters via six 100 ft3/min. fans per unit. No space is required between rack-mounted modules. Provide room at the cabinet back to allow for proper airflow.
