Performance. Reliance. Brilliance.
Inspired by the enduring power of a brilliant star, the California Instruments "Asterion" line of AC power sources by AMETEK Programmable Power combines intelligence and flexibility to create an advanced platform of AC solutions. This easy-to-configure design features sophisticated technology for delivering high performance, programmable AC and DC power. Its sleek design packs maximum power density into a low-profile form factor with an intuitive touch screen interface placing that power at your fingertips. Centralized control and unparalleled modularity make Asterion the most adaptable platform on the market. Its groundbreaking capabilities set the standard for affordable, precision power sources.
iX2™ current doubling technology.
All Asterion sources employ AMETEK’s latest current enhancing technology, iX2™. The iX2 current doubling technology enables output current to increase linearly up to two times the full voltage current as the voltage decreases from range maximum to one-half of range voltage. iX2 technology results in a source that delivers full power over the widest voltage ranges. This eliminates the need to buy overpowered sources just to reach low line current requirements
