7212: Up to 113V RMS Potential at up to 4A

7212

For Power Grid Simulation

  • DC – 250 kHz bandwidth design minimizes phase shift of system output when reproducing the most rapid fault events
  • Can be field-configured for high-voltage/lowcurrent, medium voltage and current, or low-voltage/high-current applications
  • Four-quadrant operation
  • User-selectable controlled-voltage or controlled-current modes of operation
  • Protection circuitry protects from input overloads, improper output connection (including shorted and improper loads), over-temperature, over-current, and supply voltages that are too high or low

Key Performance Capabilities:

  • Up to 113V RMS at up to 4A
  • Pulsed output up to 30 Ap
  • 430 watts RMS continuous output
  • Low noise floor of only 300 µV
  • Fast, 50 V/µs slew rate
  • System output of over 1,700 watts is possible with multiple, interconnected amplifiers

The 7212 is a four-quadrant, 0.44 kVA, DC-enabled power amplifier that was created to meet the exacting requirements of the power utility industry. It features a DC to 250 kHz bandwidth, low noise floor, fast slew rate and a 113V RMS potential. The 7212 can be combined to form a 3-phase Y voltage source, and has a wide range of field-configurable options.

A single 7212 can output a 40 mSec pulse with up to 30 amperes peak current. In continuous operation, a 7212 can provide 440 watts RMS of output power. If more voltage is needed, up to four amplifiers can be combined in series and operate as a single system.

The 7212 can operate in either voltage or current mode and can be configured by the customer for high-voltage/low-current, medium voltage and current, or low- voltage/high-current applications. It provides very low noise and fast slew rates, and can safely drive a wide range of resistive or inductive loads.

Note: Testing performed into resistive loads as specified. Performance reported is typical into the specified load up to 20 kHz frequency levels. Performance may be affected when operating into highly reactive loads or above 20 kHz, reducing maximum voltage, current and power output. *Testing not performed.
