New AMETEK Sorensen i-BEAM Series

AMETEK Sorensen i-BEAM Series

High Performance, Bidirectional, Regenerative Programmable DC Power System

The Sorensen™ Intelligent-Bidirectional Energy AMplified (i-BEAM) Series is the newest addition to the AMETEK Programmable Power portfolio of high-power testing solutions. The new i-BEAM series features full DC source and sink capabilities with power levels from 60 kW up to 1.3 MW. The i-BEAM series is fully scalable up to 650 kW and beyond up to 1.3 MW with parallel systems. The available voltage ranges of 80V, 300V, 600V, 800V and 1,000VDC provide full power up to 1,000A within a single system. Single-channel, 2-channel and 4-channel configurations are available.

Control via Front Panel Touchscreen and Digital or Analogue Control Interfaces

The i-BEAM Series can be operated from the intuitive, front panel touchscreen that enables the user to easily setup, control and monitor the Output Programming Parameters, Supervisory and Set Point limits, Measurements, and System Settings. Additionally, a variety of communication control interfaces are available including; VNC Ethernet, Modbus, CAN Bus, EtherCAT, Profibus DP, Profinet, LabVIEW, Matlab/Simulink or high-speed Analogue control.
