Configurable PPS systems deliver high power solutions in a portable 19" rack cabinet

07-03-2022 | TDK | Power

TDK Corporation has introduced its 20U high, 19" rack cabinet high power solutions to the TDK-Lambda GENESYS+ series of programmable DC power supplies. The configurable GSPS series offers 30kW, 45kW or 60kW of output power with seamless transition over constant voltage, constant current and constant power limit operating modes. The cabinets are mounted on lockable castors to allow them to be easily repositioned around research or production facilities.

The series has been developed to satisfy the demands of test and measurement, automotive component test, high power magnets, medical imaging, aerospace, semiconductor processing, industrial automation, and process control applications. Internally up to four popular 15kW power supplies are configured together to deliver 41 standards voltage/current combinations ranging from 0-10V to 0-0600V with output currents of up to 4,500A. The company's patented advanced parallel system provides dynamic load response and ripple and noise characteristics comparable to a single power supply.

Two input voltage ranges are offered – a three-phase low voltage from 170 to 265VAC or a three-phase high voltage 342 to 528VAC. The input circuit breakers are accessible on the cabinet's front panel, and the paralleled output bus bar connections are at the rear. Safety features are standard in all GENESYS+ power supplies, offering Safe/Auto Re-Start, Last Setting Memory and built-in protection functions for voltage, current and temperature.

The GSPS utilises standardised programming over the complete series, utilising front panel controls, remotely via LAN (LXI 1.5), USB 2.0 and RS232/485 communications or the isolated analogue control and monitoring interface (0-5V, 0-10V), which are provided as standard. Optional interfaces comprise a choice of GPIB (IEEE488.2), EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP and IS420 (4mA to 20mA isolated current programming loop). The software package offers software drivers, a waveform creator, and a virtual front panel GUI.

The five-year warranty series is safety certified to IEC/EN/UL 61010-1 with CE and UKCA marking to the Low Voltage, EMC and RoHS Directives. The series also complies with IEC/EN 61204-3 for conducted and radiated EMI and EMC immunity.
