WESTEK Electronics announces the release of California Instruments’ latest release of high power, high accuracy dc power supplies, the Argantix series.
The Argantix XDS power supply system series covers the basic power output ranges of 5kW, 10kW and 15kW in voltage ranges from 30 volts maximum to 600 volts maximum.
The power supplies have intuitive front panel controls that are extremely user-friendly as well as a standard supplied RS232C serial interfaces with an optional GPIB interface being available.
An analogue (0-10V dc) interface is also optionally available.
The power supplies are supported by Windows-based GUI software, operating via the RS232C interface. Furthermore, the use of standard SCPI command language syntax and instrument drivers allow for easy system integration in ATE environments.
The XDS series is fully instrumented permitting measurement of voltage, current and power as standard.
Data read-back can be integrated with test sequences, with pass/fail indication, thus facilitating burn-in and product testing. Measurements can be recorded to disk in easily exportable formats such as MS Excel.
The XDS series can be very flexibly used in a wide number of testing applications. Time-based output changes can be readily programmed, stored, and executed under program control.
Programmable events include steps, sweeps, drops as well as surges for both current and/or voltage.
Voltage regulation on the input side is less than 0.1% of set output voltage range within the input voltage tolerance of 208V-10% to 230V+10%.
Similarly load regulation is also less than 0.1% of output voltage range. Transient response is fast with voltage recovery within 2% of voltage range within 2ms after a 30% step function load change.
