TDK Corporation announces that 600W models have been added to its TDK-Lambda Z+ Series of programmable DC power supplies. Complementing the Z+200, Z+400 and Z+800 ranges, these 600W programmable power supplies offer the same superior features and carry a 5-year warranty. Addressing the need for high quality bench-top power supplies for the R&D environment, the TDK-Lambda Z+600 range shares the same dimensions as the other Z+ ranges and thus offers extremely high power density. The Z+600 range 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 600W Z+ Series are available with output voltages up to 100Vdc and output currents up to 60A. The Z+600 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 for EMC and in accordance with the LV Directive and RoHS Directive, the Z+600 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+600 is designed to meet UL/EN60950-1.
