Advanced Half-Rack 1U AC/DC Programmable Power Supply Series Provides Industry Leading 1.5kW Output Power Operating from Wide-Range Single Phase AC Input

TDK Corporation (TSE 6762) announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda 1U Half-Rack GENESYS+™ 1.5kW AC/DC Programmable Power Supply Series. This latest introduction has industry leading power density (1.5kW in a Half-Rack width) in a lightweight package (less than 3.5kg / 7.7lbs) all while keeping the same advanced features/functions and front/rear panel interfaces as the other Full-Rack programmable power platforms (1.7kW, 2.7kW, 3.4kW, 5kW, 10kW and 15kW).

Ten different models are available that range from 0-10V (0-150A) to 0-600V (0-2.6A) and can operate in Constant-Current (CC), Constant-Voltage (CV) or the newly offered Constant-Power (CP) limit mode and offer advanced performance and functionality well-suited for both bench-top and rack-mount product design and development in laboratory/R&D environments in market segments such as Aerospace, Automotive, Semiconductor, Medical, Industrial and Renewable/Alternative Energy.

All models within the 1U Half-Rack platform operate from a wide-range single-phase AC Input (85VAC to 265VAC), have built-in active Power Factor Correction (0.99 typical) with conversion efficiencies up to 90% and offer cooling fan speed control (for reduced audible noise and extended life).

Advanced features offered include Internal Resistance simulation, Slew-Rate control of Output voltage/current and Arbitrary Waveform Generation with Auto-Trigger as well as Enable/Disable with Polarity selection, Internal Pre-Load ON/OFF control, Trigger-IN/Trigger-OUT capability and built-in Control pins (for external load disconnect or polarity reversal).

Built-in standard control methods include the Local-Mode menu-driven front panel display, the Remote Isolated Analog Interface or any of the four rear panel Remote Digital Interfaces (LAN, USB, RS-232 and RS-485). Optional rear panel Remote Digital Interfaces included are IEEE and Modbus-TCP. Software instrument drivers are available as well as application software that includes a Waveform Creator (to create, store/load and trigger waveform sequence profiles) and a Virtual Front Panel GUI (with Status Logger, Constant Power Limit simulator and Solar Array simulator).

With each unit only having a Half-Rack width, a 17” depth and 3.5kg weight, two units can easily be moved and installed side-by-side in a standard 19” rack using the GH/RM Rack-Mount accessory kit. A Blank Front Panel option is available where front panel local mode user access is not required.

Carrying a five (5) year warranty, the Half-Rack 1.5kW Power Supply Series has Safety certifications to IEC/EN/UL/cUL 60950-1 and is CE marked in accordance with the Low Voltage, EMC (IEC/EN61204-3; industrial environment) and RoHS Directives.
