Magna-Power expands SL series programmable power supplies with 17 new models

Magna-Power Electronics has increased the power capability of its 1U (1.75-inch high) SL Series to 8kW with the addition of 17 new models.

The 8kW models extend the SL series, which now boasts the most programmable power in 1U within its product class, says Magna-Power. It now spans 99 models from 1.5 to 8kW, from 5.0 to 1000V DC, and from 1.5 to 250A DC.

The 8kW models have been released in response to Magna-Power users’ ever-increasing demands for rack-mount power density. The SL series was introduced in 2013 as Magna-Power’s first 1U power supply. At its introduction, the series was offered up to 4kW, an industry first for its product class. In 2015, the product series was expanded to 6kW and has since grown. Magna-Power believes it satisfies the application demands for automated test equipment (ATE) system integration, automotive testing, oil and gas, consumer product validation, and aerospace systems testing. 

All SL series models come as standard with monitoring and control from a variety of sources, including front panel, computer interface and an isolated analogue-digital I/O connector. A Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI) command set is supported, allowing easy ASCII text programming over a computer interface.

An IVI driver is also included for the Visual Studio programming environment along with a dedicated National Instruments LabVIEW and LabWindows driver. Additional computer interface options include LXI TCP/IP Ethernet (+LXI), IEEE-488 GPIB (+GPIB), USB and RS-485.

SL Series models are available with three-phase input, including 208, 240, 380, 415, 440, or 480V AC. Additionally, 1.5 kW models are available with a single-phase active power factor correction (PFC) universal input, allowing for an input voltage range spanning 85 to 265V AC.

The 8kW SL series models are available immediately. All Magna-Power products are designed and manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Flemington, New Jersey, USA. The company’s products are available directly from Magna-Power in the USA, through Magna-Power sales offices in the United Kingdom and Germany, or from a network of distributors in over 40 countries worldwide.
