bipolar-power-source-with-zero-crossover-distortion This bipolar power source with zero crossover distortion was developed to control beam positioning magnets in particle accelerators and scientific laser applications. This power source is a high precision linear amplifier that connects to and turns an ordinary DC unipolar voltage source into a precise bipolar power source with zero crossover distortion.  This class AB linear amplifier is rated at 160A @ 25V and contains less than 5mV p-p voltage ripple. Used in conjunction with an “off the shelf” unipolar voltage source, the supply produces a precision bipolar output...

3200-amp-850vdc-rectifier-for-drilling-rig An Industrial customer had to design a drilling rig which would be powered by 3 diesel generators. APS supplied (2) 100-6758 air cooled, 3200A, 3 phase rectifiers to provide the 850VDC bus required by the VFD motor drives. We also provided (2) IAP2KD17 dynamic brake choppers to limit the DC bus voltage during the descent of the drawwork motor. The rectifier and brake choppers are standard APS products.
