Triple-output DC power supplies, with front-panel programming have been released by Agilent Technologies. In benchtop or industrial settings, front-panel analogue programming saves time and reduces complexity by allowing the user to set and control key output parameters-without extensive programming knowledge.
With this function and other capabilities, the U8030 series DC power supplies are suitable for margin tests, burn-in or reliability tests and general electronics manufacturing industries.
The devices are designed with an intuitive user interface. All three channels of the power supply can be controlled individually or simultaneously with just a press of a button (All On/Off), this delivers up to 375 watts (total) to multiple devices or points.
To help users observe the total power drawn during test, devices in this range include a screen that shows voltage and current readings simultaneously.
This is especially helpful to users trying to verify proper design and operation of electronic components and subsystems.
The series also includes over-voltage and over-current protection to help ensure the integrity of the device under test and to protect the power supply. For added flexibility, overload limits are user-selectable. Performance advantages such as low noise and good load regulation also feature.
