B&K Precision 9830 Programmable AC Power Sources

B&K Precision 9830 Programmable AC Power Sources provide high performance and low total harmonic distortion in a 3U form factor. The addition of positive and negative DC offset voltages expands the AC capabilities of these power sources to operate in DC and AC+DC output coupling modes. The user can select built-in and user-defined harmonic waveforms or select from standard sine, square, or clipped sine outputs. The high output current crest factor and low input resistance make the 9830 devices suitable for high inrush current measurements when evaluating capacitive or inductive loads.


  • AC, DC, and AC+DC power source
  • Low total harmonic distortion meets the IEC 61000-3-2 standard
  • Comprehensive measurement capabilities: Vrms, Arms, Vdc, +Apk, -Apk, inrush current, frequency, power factor, apparent power, reactive power, true power, and crest factor
  • 0.98 power factor at AC input stage
  • Built-in standard waveforms sine, square, clipped sine
  • 30x built-in THD waveforms
  • Amplifier mode with 1.2kHz bandwidth for generating user-defined arbitrary waveforms
  • Step, List, and Pulse modes for generating power line disturbance (PLD) simulations (List mode supports 10x user-defined programs with up to 100x programmable steps)
  • Generate custom harmonic waveforms on a PC and download them to the instrument's 5x non-volatile memory locations
  • Digital I/O port supporting external trigger, transient indication, failure status indication, remote inhibit, RS232, and external analog output level programming interface
  • Comprehensive protection modes (OVP, OCP, OPP, OTP, fan failure, output timer, and key lock)
  • LabVIEW™ driver and application software with soft panel for remote control available
  • Control the AC source from a standard web browser via a built-in web server
