Magna-Power’s SL Series Programmable Power Supplies Expanded to 8 kW in 1U

17 new models in the product range

Magna-Power Electronics, a leader in programmable power products worldwide, has increased the power capability of its popular 1U (1.75” high) SL Series to 8 kW with the addition of 17 new models. The new 8 kW models further extend the SL Series lead for the most programmable power in 1U within its product class. The SL Series now spans 99 models from 1.5 kW to 8 kW, from 5 Vdc to 1000 Vdc, and from 1.5 Adc to 250 Adc.

The new 8kW models come in response to Magna-Power users’ ever-increasing demands for rack-mount power density. The SL Series was introduced in 2013 as Magna-Power’s first 1U power supply, building upon over 30 years of innovation in power electronics. When first introduced, the product series was offered up to 4 kW, an industry first for its product class. In 2015, the product series was further expanded to 6 kW and has since grown into Magna-Power’s most popular product line, satisfying the application demands for: automated test equipment (ATE) system integration, automotive testing, oil and gas, consumer product validation, and aerospace systems testing. On the 8 kW models’ introduction, Adam Pitel, Magna-Power’s Vice President of Operations said: “Magna-Power’s growth is fuelled by incorporating state-of-the-art devices and technologies, while ensuring reliability through the company’s innovative power processing topologies.”

All SL Series models come as standard with monitoring and control from a variety of sources, including: front panel, computer interface and an isolated analogue-digital I/O connector. A Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI) command set is supported, allowing easy ASCII text programming over a computer interface. In addition, an IVI driver is included for the Visual Studio programming environment along with a dedicated National Instruments LabVIEW™ and LabWindows™ driver. Additional computer interface options include LXI TCP/IP Ethernet (+LXI), IEEE-488 GPIB (+GPIB), USB and RS-485.

SL Series models are available with three-phase input, including 208 Vac, 240 Vac, 380 Vac, 415 Vac, 440 Vac, or 480 Vac. In addition, 1.5 kW models are also available with a single-phase active PFC Universal Input (UI), allowing for an input voltage range spanning 85 Vac to 265 Vac.

The new 8 kW SL Series models are available immediately. All Magna-Power products are designed and manufactured at the company’s vertically integrated headquarters in Flemington, New Jersey USA. The company’s products are available directly from Magna-Power in the USA, through Magna-Power sales offices in the United Kingdom and Germany, or from a network of distributors in over 40 countries worldwide.
