AMETEK Programmable Power Launches Sorensen HPX Programmable DC Power System for High-Power Applications

AMETEK Programmable Power, the global leader in programmable AC and DC power test solutions, manufacturing such brands as California Instruments™, Sorensen™ and Elgar™ (, has introduced a new DC power system in the Sorensen family ideally suited for high-power applications.

AMETEK’s new Sorensen HPX High Power Extensible DC Series is a highly configurable solution available from 36kW - 240kW+ power levels. The extensible platform delivers unsurpassed quality and reliable low-noise performance, fast and precise programmability with premium features at an affordable price, all in a convenient rack-mount cabinet.

AMETEK has long been known for supplying power sources with leading power performance. The Sorensen HPX series is no exception, with advances in programmability, modularity and low-noise performance. The HPX features two modes in one: automatic constant voltage and constant current mode crossover.

State-of-the-art, FET-based, high-frequency switching technology offers accuracy, exceptional load transient response and low noise in a smaller footprint as compared to other DC power supplies. In addition, its modular design protects the integrity of the system components and simplifies sparing and maintenance.

The Sorensen HPX can accommodate up to 150kW in a single bay rack-mount cabinet, or up to 240kW in a dual bay rack. Additionally, the series includes Remote Sense technology for correcting errors from line voltage drops, and a Remote Shutdown (S/D) Interlock to protect against hazardous faults.

HPX builds on Sorensen’s long history of providing high-quality DC power supplies. The Sorensen HPX series serves every major market and application that requires demanding test specifications from industrial automation and material research to aerospace and satellite testing.
