RS Components Introduces High-Quality and High-Specification Auto-Ranging Power Supplies
Students from the Technical University of Munich once again won the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition near Los Angeles, with their pod that was equipped with more than 420 Infineon chips.
RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has announced a new series of 200W and 400W high-specification and high-quality power supply units from Keysight Technologies. The E36200 series of single- and dual-output DC PSUs has been designed for applications that will require more power than that delivered by typical benchtop power units.
Primarily targeting use by engineers who are designing and testing devices that will use high currents, key applications will include: usage in electronics labs for the testing of components such as DC-DC converters, LED lighting drivers, sensors and connectors; automotive device testing at 12V, 42V and 120V; development of high-power portable devices such as power tools, robotics and industrial monitoring systems; and wide deployment in the aerospace and defence market sectors for the testing of various avionics systems, for example.
Incorporating many of the advanced features of the E36300 series and offering low output ripple/noise and several layers of device protection, there are four auto-ranging DC power supplies in the 36200 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.
Designed to output more usable power, the manufacturer’s auto-ranging technology delivers the highest current available at all output voltages. In addition, 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. Other key features include ripple/noise as low as 350μV(rms); protection features for devices under test including over-voltage, -current and -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.
