1U programmable DC power supply for battery charging and test introduced by Magna-Power

FLEMINGTON, N.J., 6 Feb. 2013. Magna-Power Electronics Inc. in Flemington, N.J., is introducing the SL series 1U programmable DC rackmount power supply for battery charging, automated test equipment (ATE), automotive and hybrid/electric development, semiconductor burn-in, and other research and development activities.

The SL power electronics series offers models ranging from 1.5 to 4 kilowatts, all in a 1U rack-mount package that measures 1.75 inches and fits in a standard rack. The SL series has 54 different models with voltage ratings ranging from 5 to 1000 volts DC and current ratings ranging from 1.5 to 250 amps DC.

All SL series models come standard with front panel control, external 37-pin isolated analog and digital I/O, and a RS232 computer programming interface. For computer communications, remote interface software is provided, along with Magna-Power Electronics IVI driver, enabling programming from a variety of environments, including LabVIEW and Visual Studio.

Load-dependent variable speed fans are standard, and options include LXI TCP/IP Ethernet interface (+LXI), IEEE-488 GPIB interface (+GPIB), USB Edgeport (+USB), and high slew rate output (+HS) for fast output transitions. Master/slave operation will be available with the UID47 device, enabling multiple units to be tied in series or parallel.

All SL series models are available with three-phase input, including 208/240 volts AC, 380/415 volts AC, or 440/480 volts AC. 1.5-kilowatt models are available with a single-phase Universal Input (UI), allowing for an input voltage range spanning 85 to 265 volts AC. The Universal Input for the 1.5-kilowatt models implements active power factor correction (PFC) for 0.99 power factor at maximum load, keeping input current draw to a minimum.
