TDK Corporation announces an extension to its TDK-Lambda Z+ Series of programmable DC power supplies with the addition of the higher power Z+800 range. Carrying a 5-year warranty, these 800W programmable power supplies offer the same superior features as the lower power Z+400 and Z+200 ranges and address the need for high quality bench-top power supplies for the R&D environment. The TDK-Lambda Z+800 range shares the same package size as the Z+200 and Z+400 and thus offers extremely high power density. It is also ideally suited for ATE and OEM 2U rack mounted or integrated applications such as Test & Measurement, Semiconductor Burn-in, Component Test, Laser Diode, Heater Supplies, RF Amplifiers and Electromagnets.
Models in the 800W Z+ Series are available with output voltages up to 100Vdc and output currents up to 72A. The Z+800 units can operate in either constant current or constant voltage modes and accept a universal (85-265Vac) input. Higher power systems can be achieved by connecting up to 6 identical units in parallel with active current sharing. To increase the output voltage or to provide a bipolar output, up to 2 units may be connected in series.
All models can be programmed via the front panel or remotely using USB, RS232/485 and analogue interfaces which are built in as standard. Optional LAN, GPIB (IEEE488) and isolated analogue programming interfaces are available. CE marked in accordance with the Low Voltage Directive, the Z+800 conforms to EN55022-B, FCC part-15-B and VCCI-B for conducted and radiated EMI. Safety approvals include UL/EN/IEC61010-1, and the Z+800 is designed to meet UL/EN60950-1.
