Intepro’s Procyon Test Systems Combine Open-Source Integration with High-Efficiency Sources and Regenerative Loads

Fully integrated, scalable systems from 1W to over 1MW combine Intepro’s auto-ranging programmable power sources and regenerative loads in modular rack-mounted configurations

February 15, 2017—Intepro Systems, a market leader in power component and power system automated test equipment (ATE), announces its Procyon line of integrated production test systems. At the core of each Procyon system are Intepro’s industry-leading programmable DC and AC sources and programmable electronic loads. All Procyon ATE’s feature open architecture supporting LXI, IEEE, VXI, PXI and AXI protocols facilitating integration of commercial off-the shelf, 3rd-party instruments, such as oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers and industrial rack-mounted computer hardware. While each Procyon system is tailored to meet specific requirements, the system’s modularity and interoperability allow for easy modification, expansion or upgrade, as needed. The result is a highly cost-effective and flexible solution when compared to custom test systems.

By utilizing Intepro’s efficient, modular, programmable, auto-ranging DC sources, test conditions requiring constant power output over widely varying load conditions can be accommodated. This eliminates, in many cases, the need for multiple DC sources in the system. And by utilizing Intepro’s programmable, regenerative electronic loads, up to 95% of the load power can be returned to the source. This not only reduces costly energy consumption but also allows for the system to operate without need for a noisy blower or expensive external cooling to exhaust heat from within the ATE rack.

“Our knowledge and expertise in power supplies, distributed power systems, regenerative power and power components are all in evidence in our new Procyon systems,” said Gerard Sheehan, Intepro's Chief Technical Officer. “Our systems are unparalleled for production testing, accelerated life testing, environmental stress screening, repair and characterization.”

An informative brochure is available that describes the features and capabilities of the Intepro Procyon System. For additional information about this or any other Intepro product, visit the Intepro Systems website at:www.inteproATE.com or email sales@inteproate.com
