Programmable power supplies provide 1700W in 1U heightAmetek Programmable Power is introducing a higher-power version of their high density 1U rack height programmable power supply. The Sorensen XG1700 is available in 12 different models with maximum output voltages up to 600V and currents up to 220A.

The new Sorensen XG1700 series offers the highest power level currently available in a 1U full rack casing. Front ventilation ensures that units can be stacked at full density without the need for ventilation spaces above or below.

High-frequency, soft-switching technology is used to provide low-output noise coupled with high-power efficiency. The technology also minimises the stress on the switching devices, thus providing high higher mean time between failure (MTBF). The 1700W of output power can be provided in both constant voltage and constant current modes, and special fold-back modes can be selected if required. Bus controlled auxiliary output voltages are available for switching connection relays or for other switching requirements.

The Sorensen XG series comes as standard with USB 2.0, RS-232, RS-485 and non-isolated analogue interfaces to provide a comprehensive set of options to connect to a PC or other network device. Isolated analogue, LXI compliant Ethernet and GPIB interfaces are available as options.

The Sorensen XG series is exclusively available in the UK from TTid; to find out more, visit the website at
