The Sorensen XBT32-3FTP adds to the capability of the Sorensen benchtop product line with a 16-bit triple output supply. Channels 1 and 2 can be programmed 0-32V and 0-3A each. The third output is fully programmable 0-15V, 0-5A up to a maximum of 30W. Channels 1 and 2 can be configured for tracking, parallel or series operation to, in effect, provide the equivalent of 6 different power supplies. In isolated mode, each of the 3 outputs functions independently; in tracking mode, channels 1 and 2 provide the same, but isolated output; in parallel mode, there is one 0-32V/0-6A output and one 0-15V/0-5A/30W output; in series mode, there is one 0-64V/0-3A output and one 0-15V/0-5A/30W output.
Safety of devices under test is paramount. The Sorensen XBT series of power supplies provides superior device protection. Each output is fully isolated with voltage/current preview before turning on the output. Built-in switches, in addition to enabling the preview mode, can configure the outputs for parallel or series connection while graphics on the front panel show the user where to make connections.
Advanced engineering features include storage of 100 different setups (voltage and current) as well as a 100 hour timer. Power- on state and synchronous or individual control of each channel output can also be set. Over-voltage and over-current protection is programmed for each channel.
Computer control is easily accomplished through industry-standard SCPI commands via the USB or RS-232C interfaces which come standard on every unit. The GPIB / Ethernet interface option allows 3 low power channels in a half-rack for ATE applications. This option also includes an 8-bit digital I/O which can be set as input or output signals for programming.
