Magna-Power Expands Isolated MagnaDC Programmable DC Power Supplies

February 26, 2020 by Magna Power Electronics

Magna Power Electronics released 35 additional models to its expansive MagnaDC programmable DC power supply product line with increased output isolation ratings now up to 6,000 Vdc.

Magna-Power Electronics, a world-leading programmable power products company, released 35 new models to its expansive MagnaDC programmable DC power supply product line with increased output isolation ratings now up to 6,000 Vdc. The 35 new isolated high voltage models join over 1,000 models in Magna-Power’s MagnaDC offering, with voltage ratings now from 5 Vdc to 6,000 Vdc, current ratings from 0.2 Adc to 24,000 Adc, and power ratings from 1.5 kW to 2,000 kW+. The new high voltage models address applications across many industries, including: capacitor testing and charging, semiconductor ion implantation and physical vapor deposition, tethered DC-powered vehicles, cable testing, among many others.

The new isolated high voltage models include new models across many Magna-Power products series, including:

  • 5 new 3,000 Vdc models in the 2U 2 kW to 10 kW XR Series
  • 16 new 5,000 Vdc and 6,000 Vdc models in the 3U-8U 5 kW to 50 kW TS Series
  • 8 new 5,000 Vdc and 6,000 Vdc models in the floor-standing 30 to 75 kW MS Series
  • 6 new 5,000 Vdc and 6,000 Vdc models in the 100 kW to 250 kW floor-standing MT Series

The new models are offered in the same physical dimensions as Magna-Power’s existing models of the same power ratings, providing among the highest power density available on the market for high-voltage high-power products.

In addition to the new models, Magna-Power also increased the output isolation rating for its popular High Isolation Output (+ISO) option. This option, available for models rated 250 Vdc to 1000 Vdc, greatly extends the power supply’s output isolation rating, popular in applications demanding either many units in series or floating the output beyond their standard isolation ratings. For 250 Vdc to 1000 Vdc models with the +ISO option, the new output isolation ratings are increased to:

  • ±(3000 Vdc + Vo/2) for the TS Series and MS Series, where Vo is the model’s maximum output voltage rating
  • ±6000 Vdc for the MT Series

All MagnaDC programmable DC power supplies come standard with control and monitoring from a variety of sources, including: front panel, computer interface and an isolated analog-digital user I/O connector for real-time and PLC control. A Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI) programming command set is supported, allowing easy ASCII text programming over any available computer interface. In addition, an IVI driver is 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. All rack-mount products come standard with a rack-mount kit for rear support when installed into a rack enclosure.

All Magna-Power products are designed and manufactured at the company’s vertically integrated 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 China or from a network of distributors in over 40 countries worldwide. The new high voltage models will be on display at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) 2020 exposition in New Orleans from March 16-18, 2020, Booth 1609.


About Magna-Power Electronics

Magna-Power designs and manufactures robust programmable power products in the USA that set industry standards for quality, size, and control. The company’s experience in power electronics is reflected in its 1.25 kW to 2000 kW+ product line, quality service, and reputation for excellence. Today, you will find Magna-Power’s standard products at its thousands of customers worldwide, aiding in the manufacture of electric vehicles, simulating solar arrays for development of inverters, steering magnets for particle accelerators, powering radar systems, driving traction controllers for locomotive development, or at a wide range of Universities for cutting-edge energy research.

Founded in 1981 originally with the intent of being a power electronics, lighting, and magnetics research and development company, Magna-Power pivoted several times before becoming the high-power product design and manufacturer that it is today. Learn more about the company's story and the path that eventually led it to the vertically integrated volume manufacturer that it is today.

Magna-Power Electronics products are proudly made in the USA at the company's vertically integrated, company designed and owned 73,500 ft2 headquarters in Flemington, New Jersey. All engineering, manufacturing and North America product servicing is performed at the company's headquarters.

Magna-Power Electronics utilizes vertical integration in its manufacturing process for complete control over quality, cost, and lead-time of its made-to-order products. As the company has grown, more operations have been internalized.

Vertical integration enables Magna-Power to manufacture a very broad line of sophisticated electronic products, while still maintaining industry leading lead-times. Housing engineering and manufacturing teams in the same facility forces strong collaboration between the two teams for continual process and product improvements.
