Saelig Company, Inc. has announced the availability of Aim-TTi’s MX100T, a 315 watt precision laboratory power supply offering three full performance outputs each with multiple ranges. Unlike other triple output power supplies, all three outputs have a similar power capability and can each provide 0 to 35 volts at 0 to 3 amps. Range switching extends the capabilities so that outputs can be set to 16V/6A or 70V/1.5A for maximum versatility. Where higher power is needed from one output, internal switching circuitry enables up to 210 watts to be provided from a single output arranged as either 35V/6A or 70V/3A. All outputs are fully isolated and independent but voltage tracking can be selected to make two or even three outputs track a single voltage control. The isolated tracking capability is useful for creating tracking voltages to different ground points, tracking voltages of opposite polarity, or series and parallel connection of outputs.
The MX100T has a large backlit graphic LCD that can show full settings for all three outputs simultaneously. Soft key control provides a fast and intuitive user interface that includes other display modes and menu screens when required. Voltages and currents can be set by direct numeric entry or in ‘quasi-analog’ mode using the large spin wheel. Each output has switchable remote sensing and variable over-voltage and over-current protection trips. 200 settings can be stored, arranged as 50 for each output and a further 50 that store the settings for all three outputs simultaneously. Each output has its own DC On/Off control key but additional keys are provided that turn any combination of outputs on or off simultaneously. This function can be extended to turn the outputs on or off in a timed sequence without external control. For secure operation, the front panel can be locked against accidental change using Lock Key. If additional security is required, locking can be set to require a four digit pass code.
The MX100T is housed in a compact case suitable for benchtop or rack mounting (half rack width by 3U height). A rack mounting kit for one or two units is available. Front input ventilation is used to enable horizontal and vertical stacking without compromising cooling.
For applications that need remote control via USB, RS232, GPIB or LXI compliant LAN interfaces, the MX100TP version has all the same features as the MX100T plus the required interfaces and duplicate terminals on the rear panel. Click to view the datasheet.
Made by Aim-TTi, a leading European test equipment manufacturer, the MX100T Triple Power Supply is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY.
