Kikusui Electronics has announced the PWR-01 Series wide-range benchtop DC power supply. The PWR-01 is a versatile instrument with models offering 400-W, 800-W, and 1,200-W rated power output and maximum rated voltage up to 650 V. Equipped with a 4-times voltage and current variable ratio as well as a 30% increase in power density compared with the company’s previous model, the PWR-01 provides flexible current and voltage for a variety of applications.

Variable internal impedance is a unique new feature that allows for various types of simulations suitable for automotive test and other battery-driven applications as well as solar-panel evaluation. The PWR-01 is also equipped with a soft-start function that limits the inrush current, minimizing any harmful effects to DUTs such as DC motors. The PWR-01 is also equipped with ergonomic power setting knobs, allowing the operator to control voltage and current independently, as well as front-facing banana plugs designed for safety and comfort.

The PWR-01 programmable internal-memory feature lets the operator save custom sequences on the device, eliminating the need to access a PC every time a test is conducted. Synchronized operation allows for more complex sequences over multiple channels for accurate testing of DC/DC converters and other products. LAN (LXI), USB, and RS-232 interfaces are included as a standard; the PWR can be operated in almost any testing environment via SCPI commands, facilitating system integration.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part Two

Maxwell’s Equations are eloquently simple yet excruciatingly complex. Their first statement by James Clerk Maxwell in 1864 heralded the beginning of the age of radio and, one could argue, the age of modern electronics.
