B&K Precision Grows XLN System Power Supply Line

Press release date: Sep 12, 2013

Offers Higher Voltage 150 V, 300 V, and 600 V Configurations

YORBA LINDA, CA -- B&K Precision today announced three new base models to its XLN Series of programmable DC power supplies. Expanding on the success of the XLN Series, the new models, XLN15010, XLN30052, and XLN60026 offer an even greater range in output voltage - up to 150V, 300 V, and 600 V, respectively. These DC power supplies can deliver a maximum of 1560 W in a compact 1U rackmountable form factor, making them particularly suitable for high voltage and ATE system integration applications.

Like previous models in the series, these new power supplies offer a front panel interface with full numeric keypad and rotary knob, features not typically found in other system power supplies available on the market. On the rear is the standard USB interface for remote control and RS485 interface for master/slave mode communication in parallel configurations. A DB25 analog programming interface has been added for external analog voltage and current control with monitoring functions, while the GPIB and LAN (–GL) interface remains an available option.

Additionally, these power supplies include a list mode feature with PC software provided that allows users to easily execute programmed test sequences up to 150 steps, internal memory storage to quickly save/recall up to 10 different instrument settings, adjustable voltage and current slew rates, and remote sense terminal.

XLN Series models provide extensive protection features: overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), overpower (OPP), and overtemperature (OTP) protection, along with constant voltage-to-constant current (CV-to-CC) and constant current-to-constant voltage (CC-to-CV) foldback protection modes. All models are backed by a 3-year warranty.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's XLN15010, XLN30052, and XLN60026 list at $2,250 each and –GL models list at $2,600 each.
