Highest Density 2U 5kW Programmable Power from Lambda Americas
The newest member of the GenesysTM
product family of programmable switching power supplies provides highest
power density, low ripple and a complete set of user-friendly
interfaces. Also offered in 750W, 1U Half Rack and 750W or 1500W, 1U
Full Rack, 3300W 2U and 10/15kW 3U, it continues the advanced,
high-density series of AC/DC, rackmount, programmable power supplies.
Outputs available range up to 600V and 1,000A. In addition to saving
space, GenesysTM power supplies
contain extensive standard features that provide a new level of
performance and flexibility in ATE, Industrial and Communications
In addition to highest power density, the GEN 2U 5kW
offers popular worldwide three phase inputs, 208VAC or 400VAC. They
feature Active Power Factor 0.94 typical. This assures operation in
difficult AC environments and meets European EMC requirements.
The user-friendly front panel provides reliable
control through encoders selectable for fine or course adjustment and
four digit LED Voltage and Current meters. Adjustable OVP, UVL and
Current Foldback provide further flexibility. Their set values may be
previewed on the front panel display with Output ON or OFF. The Foldback
may be set to latch output OFF if desired for safety.
New Interface Options
Also included in this release are several important
new features and options. Up to four like units may be connected in
parallel and user configured for the Master to Program and Monitor the
total current of the group. Thus, four units can appear as a single 20kW
power supply, increasing flexibility for system designers.
In the Digital Options, an option called Multi-Drop
allows an IEEE Multi-Drop Master to control Multi-Drop equipped Slaves
over RS485, avoiding the cost of a GPIB board in every slave power
supply. Up to 31 may be addressed over the RS485 lines of Master and
The newest Digital Option is LXI Class C Certified
LAN Ethernet. The interface provides flexible system integration and
functionality for system designers. LXI (LAN extensions for
Instrumentation) is a next-generation, LAN-based modular platform
standard for automated test systems. As a leading supplier of
programmable AC/DC Power, Lambda has joined the consortium to increase
the functionality, flexibility and performance of the Genesys™ series of
programmable supplies and to support the development of the LXI
Significant safety features include Safe Re-Start and
Last Setting Memory. With Safe Re-Start, the user can select whether the
GenesysTM power supply returns to
previous settings after power off, or returns to zero (safe) output,
waiting for user instructions. Last Setting Memory retains settings of
output voltage and current, remote or local mode, OVP and UVL, Foldback,
Baud Rate and Start Up Mode, without battery. Front Panel controls also
include Output On/Off and Local/Remote selection. The Front Panel may be
locked locally or by software command.
Like other GenesysTM
products, the new 2U 5kW GenesysTM
Series includes standard, embedded 16 bit RS232/RS485 digital interface.
Through this digital interface up to 31 power supplies may be controlled
in daisy chain over the RS485 line. Analog remote programming is user
selectable 0-5V or 0-10V via DIP switches on the rear panel.
The design of GenesysTM
power supplies is highly modular to offer short lead times. SMT
technology provides high reliability.
Digital and isolated analog interfaces are optional.
The optional IEEE digital interface is IEEE488.2 & SCPI compliant.
Labview Drivers are available. Isolated analog programming options
include either 0-5V & 0-10V or 4-20ma control.
