Keysight Technologies’ Triple-Output Power Supplies Reduce Power Issues, Enable Engineers to Simulate Power Problems Early in Design Cycle

New 80-W and 160-W programmable DC power supplies provide best-in-class ease of use, modern connections and multi-channel display

Highlights:

  • Simultaneously displays all three color-coded channels on a 4.3” color LCD
  • Provides industry-leading output stability under extreme, dynamic load conditions
  • Enables data logging plus output sequencing and coupling

SANTA ROSA, Calif., June 15, 2017 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced the introduction of the E36300 Series triple-output programmable DC power supplies. With a large color display, intuitive user interface, modern device connections via LAN (LXI, USB and optional GPIB), the E36300 matches the performance of more expensive system power supplies.

“Today’s complex electronic designs place higher demands on the systems that power them,” said Bill Griffith, application engineering manager at Keysight. “But these power systems often cause design problems, and basic power supplies may be incapable of uncovering them. With the E36300 Series, engineers can simulate power problems early in the design cycle. And advanced features, such as low-current measurements, auto-series and auto-parallel connections, sequencing and data logging, help them detect power problems.”

The E36300 Series’ low “normal mode” noise specifications assure quality power for precision circuitry applications, enabling engineers to power their designs with confidence. In addition, the power supplies are acoustically quiet. Each model provides excellent line/load regulation of 0.01 percent, fast transient response time of less than 50 us, low-range current measurement, and over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature protection to prevent damage to the device under test.

Keysight’s BenchVue software supports the E36300 Series, enabling control of power supplies to set parameters and status alerts, visualize power output, and log changing voltage and current over time. The included Test Flow capabilities let users quickly automate power-supply setups and measurements into test sequences.

In addition to experienced design engineers, the E36300 Series is ideal for new users and students learning to use power supplies for the first time. With a full-menu, front-panel interface, the E36300 Series is easy and intuitive to use. The power supplies provide individual knobs for voltage and current, individual On/Off on each channel, and a keypad and softkeys to easily configure the power supply—simplifying operation and improving productivity.
