The Basic Power Station is ideal for use in classroom laboratories where science programs such as basic electricity, electronics, physics, and chemistry are taught. It has two variable-voltage ac outputs (high and low voltages), one fixed-voltage ac output, and one variable-voltage dc output (filtered). A control knob on the front panel sets the voltage of all variable outputs. Two standard grounding-type, simplex receptacles and a pair of color-coded banana jacks provide access to the ac power outputs. A pair of color-coded banana jacks provides access to the dc power output. The Basic Power Station is powered from a standard ac power outlet and turned on by a toggle switch on the front panel. A pilot light illuminates when the unit is energized.
The Basic Power Station is a handy portable unit that can be placed on any work surface in classroom laboratories. It is made of 16-gauge steel finished with scuff-resistant, black-baked enamel. The station is supplied complete with installation and operating instructions, one set of alligator-clip leads, and mounting hardware when required.
