B&K Precision recently announced the 9200 Series, which is its newest multi-range programmable DC power supply line. The series includes four 200- to 600-W models that can deliver power in any combination of the rated voltage and current up to the maximum output power of the supply. With voltage and current ranges up to 150 V and 25 A, the programmable DC power supplies are well suited for electronics manufacturing, R&D, and more.
Multi-range power supplies provide greater flexibility than traditional power supplies. The supplies can provide any combination of higher voltage or higher current along a maximum power curve. This design helps save both bench space and cost by eliminating the need for having multiple power supplies on your workbench.
On the front panel, the 9200 Series features a high-resolution, 1 mV/0.1 mA display, output on/off control, and a handy user interface with numerical keypad, cursor keys, and rotary control knob for adjusting voltage and current settings. The power supplies also provide internal memory storage to save and recall up to 72 different instrument settings.
For programming and remote control, the 9200 Series offers list mode programming, remote sense, and standard USBTMC-compliant USB, RS-232, and GPIB interfaces supporting SCPI commands. Remote control software is provided for front panel emulation, execution of internal and external program sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. The application software can also be integrated with National Instrumnets’s Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app (available for Android and iOS), allowing users to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions.
the 9200 Series models are all backed by a standard 3-year warranty and list at the following prices:
- 9201 (60 V, 10 A, 200 W): $680
- 9202 (60 V, 15 A, 360 W): $880
- 9205 (60 V, 25 A, 600 W): $1,380
- 9206 (150 V, 10 A, 600 W): $1,495
