Compact power supplies for accurate and reliable bench testing

02-09-2015 | Keysight Technologies | Test & Measurement

Design and validation engineers need to power their devices under test
(DUTs) safely and easily during manual tests or automated sequences. They
are frequently under pressure to perform tests quickly, and their test
benches are often crowded. In response, five new models with up to 100V or
5A output have been added to Keysight’s extensive portfolio of bench power
supplies. The E36100 Series offers compact DC power supplies with LAN and
USB interfaces and accurate, reliable power for testing and validating
designs.

The E36100 Series’ compact form factor (2U, ¼-rack) saves space on the bench
or in a rack, and standard LAN (LXI Core) and USB interfaces make it easy to
connect the power supplies to a computer. An intuitive on-screen menu system
makes it easy for engineers to perform manual tasks quickly, and
over-voltage and over-current detection helps engineers protect their DUTs,
says the company.

“Our customers told us they want a Keysight-quality bench power supply with
modern I/O, a compact footprint and excellent bench usability,” said Kari
Fauber, general manager of Keysight’s Power and Energy Division. “We built
the E36100 Series to meet the needs of R&D and design validation engineers
who face increasing pressures to produce high-quality designs quickly and
who want to power their devices with confidence.”

Features :
1 - Measurement capability for very small currents.
2 - A high-contrast OLED display that makes it easy to view the screen from
anywhere, even from sharp angles.
3 - Support for BenchVue software, IVI drivers and SCPI commands.
