TDK-Lambda adds 20 models to programmable DC power supplies
A total of 20 2.7kW and 3.4kW-rated models have been added to the TDK-Lambda Genesys+ series of programmable DC power supplies. The new supplies can be specified to operate from either single phase (170 to 265V AC) or three phase (342 to 460V AC or 342 to 528V AC) for global use. Applications include laboratory use as well as component, automotive and aerospace testing, semiconductor fabrication, solar array and battery simulation, plating and water treatment.
The new models are rated at 0 to 10, 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, 100, 150, 300 and 600V, with output currents of 0 to 4.5A to 0 to 340A and are capable of operating in constant voltage, constant current and constant power modes. Up to six power supplies can be connected in parallel with an auto-configuring master/slave system that provides dynamic load response and ripple and noise characteristics comparable with that of a single power supply.
The Gensys+ 2.7kW and 3.4kW products share a common 1U high 19-inch (483mm) rack mountable chassis and weigh less than 6.25kg for easy movement or installation. A blank front panel option (with no metering or control functions) is available where user access is not required or needs to be restricted. Snap-on dust filters can also be added to restrict airborne contamination.
Programming is standardised across the Genesys+ series by either using the front panel controls, remotely via LAN (LXI 1.5), USB 2.0 and RS232/485 communications, or by using the isolated analogue control and monitoring (0 to 5V, 0 to 10V) which are provided as standard. Optional interfaces include a choice of GPIB (IEEE488.2) and the Anybus CompactCom interface platform for EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP and other interface options as they are released. Software drivers, a waveform creator and a virtual front panel GUI are provided in the software package. Safety features are standard in all Genesys+ power supplies, providing safe/auto restart, last setting memory and built-in protection functions. Control of voltage and current slew rate, internal resistance simulation and display brightness control are all standard features.
The five-year warranty series is safety certified to IEC/EN/UL 60950-1(certification to EN/UL61010-1 pending), is CE marked to the Low Voltage, EMC and RoHS directives and is compliant to the industrial IEC/EN 61326-1 standard for conducted EMI, radiated EMI and EMC immunity.
