New power supplies boost efficiency in a single compact instrument

25-02-2020 | Rohde & Schwarz | Power

For any test and measurement application needing up to four independent DC power supplies with full flexibility, functionality, safety and connectivity, the Rohde and Schwarz NGP800 power supply series boosts the efficiency in any lab or production line. Users benefit from the large 5" high-resolution touch screen, which also displays detailed statistics.

The five models satisfy the requirements of users seeking smallest device footprint for two or four independent power supplies, with maximum flexibility for voltages up to 250V, of currents up to 80A and power up to 800W. Each channel supplies up to 200W with a maximum of 20A or 64V, also incorporating 48V automotive and industrial applications.

Moreover, the R&S NGP800 includes functions for logging voltage, current and power values over time for all outputs. Data logs can easily be exported as CSV files for in-depth analysis or documentation needs. The settings for all channels and functions can also be stored and recalled at the touch of a button, and even exported as a file to other R&S NGP800 to duplicate the power setup.

To protect devices supplied with power, all of the series power supplies include overcurrent protection, overvoltage protection and overpower protection.

The devices feature both advanced remote abilities and fast command processing times that fully satisfy the demands of ATE systems or production lines. Optional digital I/O and analog input interfaces further extend the scope of applications.
