Triple output lab power supply offers paralleling & tracking
The MX100T from Aim-TTi (Aim Thurlby Thandar) is a 315W precision laboratory power supply’s three outputs can each provide 0 to 35 V at 0 to 3 A. Range switching extends the capabilities so that outputs can be set to 16 V/6 A or 70 V/1.5 A for maximum versatility; where higher power is needed from one output, internal switching circuitry enables up to 210 W arranged as either 35 V/6 A or 70 V/3 A.
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 display 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-analogue mode using the large spin wheel. Each output has switchable remote sensing and variable over-voltage and over-current protection trips.
The instrument can store 200 settings 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.
The front panel can be locked against accidental operation by the Lock key. If further security is required locking can be done using a four digit pass code.
