1500 Chassis (Line/Load Chassis Mainframe with 1510 Controller)

Brand: Xitron
Model Series: 1500 Series

About Product

The XiTRON’s 1500 Series Load System Chassis and Modules allow for the creation of a comprehensive line and load switching system for testing ballasts or lamp/LED drivers. The 1500 Series may be used with either a 257xR or in combination with any other test system with manual or IEEE488 control. The 1500 Chassis is the basis of the 1500 Series load family. It contains a 240×64 pixel graphics display panel and keyboard, power supply and fan cooling system for the modules fitted. The 1500 Chassis contains one controller module and 12 slots for up to 12 switch modules (any combination of line and load switches) in application. Each module is pre-programmed by XiTRON to identify itself to the host chassis and controller. This information contains the digital code (12-bit) and name (32 characters) of the module, any cooling requirements, any timing requirements and codes indicating other capabilities. Up to 8 chassis may be controlled and programmed by a single 257xR, up to 15 by a single IEEE488 bus or a virtually unlimited number using it manually. The 1510 and 1512 are the controller options for the 1500 Chassis; one controller must be fitted. All of the controllers allow the system to be fully controlled manually. The 1510 allows the system to be controlled by a 2574R the 1512 allows the system to be controlled by an IEEE488 bus. The 1510 (2574R) and 1512 (IEEE488 control) modules allow independent control of each module fitted. The XiTRON XView Utility Software is provided as standard accessory.

Product Functions

  • A supplementary tool to XiTRON 257xR Series for ballast and tube testing
  • XiTRON XView Utility Software
    • While all XiTRON precision test equipment is designed to be used in a completely stand-alone manner, there are times when external tools can aid or enhance the operation of an instrument. The XiTRON XView software tools and drivers are designed to help easily configure an instrument from a single screen, or are used to view a complete set of measurements in a single screen. Other XView tools are designed for data collection where results can be recorded in an Excel-compatible file for post-processing, insertion into reports, or simply for archival purposes. The XiTRON XView Utility Software comes as standard for 1500 Series

Product Application

  • Ballast and lamp/LED drivers testing when jointly working with XiTRON 257xR Series Ballast Analyzer
