The Sorensen SG Series of programmable DC power supplies from Westek Electronics has been expanded to include a 0-800Vdc with 5kW, 10kW or 15kW outputs in a 3u chassis, allowing up to 5 chassis to be paralleled for maximum system power of 75kW. Paralleled units operate like a single supply.
The SG Series DC power supplies are designed for fast transient response, low noise and high power density which is enabled by air intakes that allow supplies to be stacked without any required clearance between units.
The Sorensen SG Series DC power supplies are available in two control versions:
- The SGA version DC power supplies are suited for applications requiring simple front panel analogue controls or external control and utilises 10-turn potentiometers for setting voltage and current. Values are displayed on a 3 ½ digit LED readout. Both SGA and SGI offer optional LXI Class C Ethernet or IEEE-488.2 interface.
- The SGI version DC power supplies combine onboard intelligent controls that enable sequencing, constant power mode and save/recall of instrument settings. Looping of sequences makes the SGI suitable for repetitive testing. Operator friendly features include a clear vacuum fluorescent graphical display in eight languages, context sensitive “soft” keys, front panel keyboard simplified programming and RS-232 interface.
