Power-CASSY – your programmable source of voltage and current
Power-CASSY is our supplement for experiments which require a programmable source of voltage and current. Power-CASSY is connected to a computer via its USB port allowing it to communicate with the CASSY Lab 2 measurement software. CASSY Lab 2 enables you to have full control over the Power-CASSY module, whereby you could, for instance, generate a sinusoidal or square-wave voltage without the need for a function generator. The interaction between Power-CASSY and the measurement software means that, on the one hand, you can configure parameters in CASSY Lab 2 and, on the other, measure voltage and current automatically. Connection of other CASSY modules or a CASSY display allows you to cover a wide range of applications.
Function generator included
Power-CASSY acts as a replacement for a function generator. If the equipment is used as a voltage source, then current can be measured at the same time. This means that only one Power-CASSY module is needed to record characteristics for any two-pole network and you don't need any other CASSY modules. When it is used as a constant current source, the voltage can be measured simultaneously. Thanks to the various options of controlling the Power-CASSY module from CASSY Lab 2, it is also possible to control voltage and current based on other measurements (e.g. for a PI controller). The range over which the output can be controlled is +/-10 V or +/-1 A with a resolution of 12 bits. Power-CASSY can measure up to 200,000 values per second.
Power-CASSY offers you tremendous flexibility and a wide range of options in all kinds of lessons. It can be used for demonstration experiments, either as a table-top module or in training panel frames.
