AMETEK Adds Lab DC Power Supply

December 2, 2013. AMETEK Programmable Power has expanded its Sorensen XPF60-20 Series line of DC laboratory power supplies. The new XPF60-20S unit is a single-output version of the dual output XPF60-20D. It provides up to 60 V and 20 A within its 420-W power envelope, all in a one quarter rack width at a 3U height that uses the minimum possible space for either bench or rack mounting. Since the XPF60-20S has manual control, it will most often find use in conventional bench-top use. The series, which offers both analog and digital control, features easier-to-use analog controls without sacrificing digital stability.

The Sorensen XPF60-20S and 20D employ Sorensen’s PowerFlex switch-mode technology design. PowerFlex switch-mode technology generates higher currents at lower voltages within an overall power limit envelope.

Users also can select from two other variants of the single output version of the XPF60-20 Series. The XPF60-20SA includes fully galvanically isolated, voltage-driven remote control for both voltage and current, while the XPF60-20SP provides duplicate rear terminals and digital remote control. Completing the XPF60-20 Series line, the XPF60-20DP dual-output model adds digital remote control. Both dual-output models also have small footprints so they take up less space on a crowded bench. All XPF60-20 Series units offer connectivity via GPIB, RS-232, USB, LAN and LXI Class C.

Additionally, the XPF60-20S DC power supply offers both constant voltage (CV) and constant current (CC) operation with automatic crossover. The unit offers good transient response, built-in power factor correction, and both load and line regulation.
