B&K Precision Corporation Unveils New DC Electronic Load Series

B&K Precision announced its new 8600 Series programmable DC electronic loads. Delivering the performance of modular system DC electronic loads in a compact benchtop form factor. The new series includes three models of 150 W - 250 W DC electronic loads that can sink current up to 60 A at wide voltage ranges up to 500 V. All models provide fast transient operation speeds up to 25 kHz along with built-in battery and LED test mode functions, making these high-performance DC loads suitable for testing and evaluating a variety of DC sources such as DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, LED drivers, and photovoltaic arrays. Most electronic loads regulate their input current or voltage using constant current (CC) mode or constant voltage (CV) mode. The 8600 Series can operate in any of these modes along with constant resistance (CR) and constant power (CW) mode. In addition, the 8600 Series provides transient, list, and automatic test functions for more complex loading profiles of varying load levels, switching times, and operation modes. For remote control and programming, the 8600 Series includes standard GPIB, USB, and RS232 interfaces supporting USBTMC and SCPI communication protocols. The instrument also offers terminals on the rear for external triggering, input On/Off control, voltage fault monitoring, remote sense, and external analog current control and monitoring. LabVIEW drivers are provided along with free application software for front panel emulation, generation and execution of test sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. Users can integrate this application software with NI's Data Dashboard app to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions.

B&K Precision Announces Multi-Range Programmable Dc Power Supply Line

B&K Precision announced the 9200 Series, its latest multi-range programmable DC power supply line. This new series includes four 200 W-600 W models that can deliver power in any combination of the rated voltage and current up to the maximum output power of the supply. With voltage and current ranges up to 150 V and 25 A, these programmable DC power supplies are suitable for a wide variety of uses including electronics manufacturing, R&D, service and repair, and education. Sometimes also referred to as "autoranging", multi-range power supplies provide users greater flexibility than traditional power supplies by extending the operating range beyond a single maximum power point. The supplies can provide any combination of higher voltage or higher current along a maximum power curve. This design helps save both bench space and cost by eliminating the need for having multiple power supplies on the bench or buying more power than necessary. On the front panel, the 9200 Series features a high resolution, 1 mV/0.1 mA display, convenient output On/Off control, and intuitive user interface with numerical keypad, cursor keys, and rotary control knob to quickly adjust voltage and current settings. The power supplies also provide internal memory storage to save and recall up to 72 different instrument settings. For programming and remote control, the 9200 Series offers list mode programming, remote sense, and standard USBTMC-compliant USB, RS-232, and GPIB interfaces supporting SCPI commands. Remote control software is provided for front panel emulation, execution of internal and external program sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. The application software can also be integrated with NIâ s Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app (available for Android and iOS), allowing users to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions. Other features include a built-in digital voltmeter (DVM), output timer function, and overvoltage (OVP), overpower (OPP), and overtemperature (OTP) protection modes. The company’s 9200 Series models are all backed by a standard 3-year warranty and list at the following prices: Models are Max Voltage, Max Current and Max Power.

B&K Precision Expands Compact Multi-Range Power Supply Series

B&K Precision announced its multi-range DC power supply, the model 9111, expanding its 9110 multi-range supply offering. With constant voltage (CV) and constant current (CC) modes, the 9111 automatically recalculates voltage and current limits for each setting to deliver any combination of its 60 V/8 A output range within 180 W. The new DC power supply is suitable for a wide variety of uses in electronics manufacturing, service and repair, and engineering labs. Multi-range power supplies are designed to give users the flexibility to operate in many voltage and current ranges depending on their application needs. This helps save both bench space and cost by eliminating the need for multiple power supplies on the bench or buying more power than necessary. While still maintaining the valued compact form factor of the 9110, the 9111 brings to the series 80 more watts of power and a wider range of output current. The front panel offers a bright 10 mV/1 mA resolution display, convenient output On/Off control, and rotary control knob to adjust voltage and current settings. Other features include low ripple and noise characteristics along with overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), and overtemperature (OTP) protection. Additionally, the power supply provides internal memory storage to save and recall up to 400 different voltage/current presets. Available immediately, B&K Precision's 9111 multi-range DC power supply is listed at a price of $385.
