Adaptive Power Systems mystery meat
« on: July 11, 2017, 07:36:41 pm »
I just acquired (in a job lot) a rather hefty looking Adaptive Power Systems 375VDC 13A variable PSU.  I've googled the "TSDiii375-13" written on a rear label.

However not able to find any info on this? Any ideas?

have you tried contacting the manufacturer? they still seem to be up and about.

Spoke with Caltest/Adaptive in the UK.  They identified the unit as an Adaptive badged TS series 5KW unit from Magna.

Apparently worked perfectly when it left them - I took the lid off to see if it was simple to configure it as single phase, but my brain started hurting - so I took a couple of pix and screwed the lid down.  I will put it on a three phase supply later this week and test it into some dummy loads we use for discharging a submarine battery.  If anyone needs a 5KW beast (must have three-phase!) for PSU development, servo drives, electroplating, etc... I'm open to offers!
