Dual-range DC power source furnishes up to 350 W
Test & Measurement World Staff - August 30, 2012
B&K Precision has added the Model 1747 to its line of dual-range power supplies, a unit that is capable of delivering up to 350 W of power in constant-voltage and constant-current operating modes. Suitable for a variety of uses in electronics manufacturing, service and repair, and engineering labs, the Model 1747 offers operational flexibility within voltage and current ranges to meet specific test needs.
The supply can output either higher voltage at a lower current (0 to 60 V, 5 A) or higher current at a lower voltage (0 to 35 V, 10 A). Providing nearly three times more power than its close relative, the Model 1737, the Model 1747 offers a sufficient increase in current range, yet still maintains the regulation and low-ripple characteristics available in the Model 1737. Both voltage and current are adjustable with coarse and fine control knobs, while two bright 4-digit LED meters monitor the voltage and current.
Other features include automatic recall of the supply’s last settings on power up, overload and reverse polarity protection, and the addition of an output on/off button. An RS-232 port on the rear panel allows remote control of the instrument from a PC using software or remote commands.
