Versatile Power, Inc. announces their new BENCH XR Series of compact Programmable 600W DC Power Supplies with Extended Range are now available. The BENCH XR Series is a high-density 1U design which measures 1.73 in. (44 mm) high x 8.82 in. (224 mm) wide x 10.30 in. (262 mm) deep and weighs 5.8 lbs. (2.6 Kg).
Five (5) models of the U.S.A.-built BENCH XR Series offer output power to 600 Watts, dc output current to 33 Amps and dc output voltage to 400V. Additional features include: Full Digital Control the Fastest and Most Accurate Available; SCPI Compliant USB with LabVIEW Driver and Analog Control Ports; Digital Encoders for Excellent Reliability and Accuracy; Wireless Digital Remote Sense; Built-In Voltage and Current Measurement; and Full OCP (Over-Current Protection) and OVP (Over-Voltage Protection) Protection.
Standard user interface includes: Ethernet, USB 2.0 and Analog; and Command Capability for Keysight 603x, Sorenson DLM and Xantrex XFR. The embedded 12-bit D/A and A/D converters provide very accurate controlling and reporting of both voltage and current, making the BENCH XR Series suited for bench-top and ATE applications. The built-in OLED (organic light-emitting diode) front panel simultaneously shows both voltage and current readings, along with ease of setup and complete power supply status information.
"The BENCH XR Series is a direct result of our continuing development of extremely compact, digital, and low-cost programmable power supplies capable of high output voltages. Customers have been surprised that such a high-performance power supply is so small," commented Jerry Price, CEO of Versatile Power. He continued, "Versatile Power's BENCH XR Series complement the company’s highly successful BENCH Series by offering the widest range of 600 W bench-top programmable power supplies found on the market. They provide the perfect solution for a variety of applications within the high-technology arena of R&D, production and testing."
