Multi-range dc power supplies have high-resolution VFD display
B&K Precision’s 9115 Series multi-range programmable dc power supplies now includes models 9115-AT and 9116. Both models deliver full output power of 1200 W in any combination of voltage and current within the rated limits. The 9115-AT provides built-in automotive test functions and the 9116 offers a voltage range up to 150 V, making these models suitable for automotive as well as a variety of benchtop or ATE system applications.
The 9115-AT’s built-in automotive test functions can simulate common test conditions to ensure reliability of electrical and electronic devices installed in automobiles. Compliant to automotive standards DIN 40839 and ISO 16750-2, these power test waveforms include: motor startup simulation, short voltage drop, reset behavior voltage drop, and engine start routine with cranking.
Front panel features include a high-resolution VFD display, independent voltage and current control knobs, cursors, and a numerical keypad for direct data entry. Both models also provide internal memory storage to save and recall up to 100 instrument settings, sequence (list mode) programming, and configurable overvoltage and overpower protection limits. On the rear are standard USBTMC-compliant USB, RS232, GPIB, and RS485 interfaces supporting SCPI commands.
The 9115 Series offers remote control software for front panel emulation, generation and execution of test sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. The application software can also be integrated with NI’s Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app (available for Android or iOS), allowing users to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions.
