NEPTUNE, N.J. (October 2004) - TDK-Lambda Americas Inc. Announces the launch of GenesysTM 750W Half Rack 1U Programmable DC Power Supply.
Expanding the existing 750W and 1500W GenesysTM full rack series, GENH is ideally suited for bench top and rack mounted test systems. The GenesysTM Half Rack - 750W programmable switching power supply has the highest power density ever offered in half rack 1U size and continues the advanced, high-density series of AC/DC, rack mounted adjustable power sources. Outputs available range up to 600V and 100A.
In addition to saving space, GenesysTM power supplies contain extensive standard features that provide a new level of performance and flexibility in ATE, Industrial and Communications applications. In addition to highest power density, for the first time a universal input is available in this size and power. The wide range input is not just dual range, but continuously variable from 85-265VAC, single phase, 50/60Hz. It also features Active Power Factor Correction of 0.99 at full load, another first in this size and density. This assures operation in difficult AC environments and meets European EMC requirements.
The user-friendly front panel provides reliable control through encoders selectable for fine or course adjustment (6 or 30 turns) and four digit LED Voltage and Current meters. Adjustable OVP, UVL and Current Foldback provide further flexibility. Their set values may be previewed on the front panel display. The Foldback may be set to latch output off if desired for safety.
Other significant safety features include Safe Start and Last Setting Memory. With Safe Start, the user can select whether the GenesysTM power supply returns to previous settings after power off, or returns to zero (safe) output, waiting for user instructions. Last Setting Memory retains settings of output voltage and current, remote or local mode, OVP and UVL, Foldback, Baud Rate and Start Up Mode, without battery. Front Panel controls also include Output On/Off and Local/Remote selection.
In another first, the new TDK-Lambda Americas series includes standard, embedded 16 bit RS232/RS485 digital interface. Through this digital interface up to 31 power supplies may be controlled in daisy chain over the RS485 line. Analog remote programming is user selectable 0-5V or 0-10V via DIP switches on the rear panel.
In test systems, up to four power supplies may be connected in parallel with one wire current share control, or two may be connected in series. The design of GenesysTM power supplies is highly modular to offer short lead times. SMT technology provides high reliability. Both digital and isolated analog interfaces are optional. The optional IEEE digital interface is IEEE488.2 & SCPI compliant. Labview Drivers are available. Isolated analog programming options include either 0-5V & 0-10V or 4-20ma control.
