Magna-Power Electronics, Inc. introduced 15 new models to its XR Series programmable dc power supply line, which now provides isolated outputs up to 2,000Vdc and up to 10kW in an industry-leading 2U rack-mount package. The new isolated models at 1250Vdc, 1500Vdc, and 2000Vdc satisfy the testing requirements for a variety of applications, including: gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) devices, high-voltage dc-dc converters, the oil and gas industry and the rail industry.
The new XR Series models feature ripple less than 0.025% of full scale, ± 0.01% of full scale load regulation, and full-scale voltage-current programming accuracy of ± 0.075%. XR Series models come standard with monitoring and control from a variety of sources, including: front panel, computer interface and an isolated DB37 analog-digital I/O connector. A Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI) command set is supported, allowing easy ASCII text programming over a computer interface. In addition, an IVI driver is included for the Visual Studio programming environment along with a dedicated National Instruments LabVIEW and LabWindows driver. Additional computer interface options include LXI TCP/IP Ethernet (+LXI), IEEE-488 GPIB (+GPIB), USB and RS-485.
The XR Series has been a focus of research and development activities this year, as the product line was expanded up to 10kW, up to 600Adc and with new non-isolated models from 4,000Vdc to 10,000Vdc while maintaining its 2U package size. The XR Series product now spans 126 models from 2kW to 10kW output power, with programmable output voltage ratings from 5Vdc to 10,000Vdc and programmable output current ratings from 0.2Adc to 600Adc.
