Advanced Energy Launches Programmable DC Power Supplies for the Test and Measurement Market
New iLS Series features industry-leading small footprint, high-power density and patented wireless remote sense
Advanced Energy - a global leader in highly engineered, precision power conversion, measurement and control solutions – expands its presence in the test and measurement market with the launch of the new Intelligent Laboratory SeriesTM (iLSTM) of programmable DC power supplies. With industry-leading small footprint and high-power density, the iLS600, iLS600-R and iLS1500 feature programmable capability with best-in-class measurement accuracy, and a patented wireless remote sense feature that significantly reduces noise in a wide range of test and measurement applications.
Designed for both benchtop and rackmount applications, the compact, lightweight, programmable units incorporate embedded 12-bit D/A and A/D converters for highly accurate voltage and current measurement. Digital rotary controls enable rapid adjustment and fine-tuning of the output voltage and current while front (iLS600) and rear (iLS600-R and iLS1500) ports offer convenient control remotely via USB, Ethernet and analog control inputs. The wireless remote sense feature regulates the DC voltage at the load without added sense wires to greatly reduce noise.
The iLS600 and iLS600-R power supplies feature a single output that delivers power up to 600 watts. The iLS1500 power supply offers a single output delivering up to 1500 watts of power. Five single output models ranging from 30 V to 400 V are available for both the iLS600 and iLS1500. The DC power supplies allow both series and parallel operation. Output current ranges from 2.5 A to 33 A for the iLS600 and iLS600-R, and from 5 A to 70 A for the iLS1500.
