RS Components adds Keysight’s auto-aero power supplies
200 and 400W high-specification auto-ranging power supplies from Keysight Technologies which maximise power output and target design and test for automotive, component test and avionics applications are now available from RS Components.
The E36200 series of single- and dual-output DC power supplies has been designed for applications that will require more power than that delivered by typical benchtop power units, such as electronics labs for the testing of components such as DC/DC converters, LED lighting drivers, sensors and connectors; automotive device testing at 12, 42 and 120V; development of high-power portable devices such as power tools, robotics and industrial monitoring systems; and the aerospace and defence market sectors for testing avionics systems.
The E36200 power supplies offer low output ripple/noise and several layers of device protection. There are four auto-ranging DC power supplies in the series. The 200W units are the E36231A (30V, 20A) and the E36232A (60V, 10A) and the 400W units are the dual-output E36233A (30V, 20A) and the dual-output E36234A (60V, 10A). All the models are fully programmable and come with USB, LAN, optional GPIB and a digital I/O interface.
They are designed to output more usable power, leveraging Keysight’s auto-ranging technology which is claimed to deliver the highest current available at all output voltages. The dual-channel models also offer auto-series and auto-parallel modes to combine their outputs into a single channel to double the voltage or current up to 120V or 40A, for example.
The supplies also feature ripple/noise as low as 350 microV(rms). Protection features for devices under test include over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature, precision measurement capability, a data logger and output sequencing.
The E36200 series is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
