The PWR-01 series from Kikusui Electronics is a new wide-range bench top DC power supply that provides unrivaled testing performance in a compact, user-friendly package.
The PWR-01 is a versatile instrument with models ranging from 400W, 800W and 1200W rated power output and maximum rated voltage up to 650V. Equipped with a 4 times voltage and current variable ratio as well as a 30% increase in power density compared to our previous model, the PWR-01 is guaranteed to satisfy the need for flexible current and voltage in a wide variety of applications. Variable internal impedance is a unique new feature that allows for various types of simulations ideal for automotive, solar panel evaluation, and other battery driven applications. The PWR-01 is also equipped with a soft start function that limits the inrush current, minimizing any harmful effects on DUTs such as DC motors. The user interface has been updated with ergonomic power setting knobs that allow the operator to control voltage and current independently as well as front facing banana plugs designed for optimal safety and comfort. The PWR-01 programmable internal memory feature lets the operator save custom sequences onto the device, eliminating the need to access a PC every time a test is conducted. Synchronized operation allows for more complex sequences over multiple channels for accurate testing of DC-DC converters, simulation of control circuit board start up tests, etc. LAN (LXI), USB, and RS232 interfaces are included as a standard so that the PWR can be operated in almost any testing environment via SCPI commands, LabView, Labwindows/CVI, etc., ideal for system integration. For more information on the PWR-01 series, please consult the Kikusui company website.
