B&K Precision Corporation Key Developments

B&K Precision Designs New 5100 W DC Power Supplies for High Voltage and Solar Array Applications

B&K Precision introduced three new models of high power programmable DC power supplies, models PVS10005, PVS60085, and PVS60085MR. The new PVS Series delivers output power up to 5.1 kW with excellent regulation, low noise, and fast transient response times. All models provide a unique built-in solar array simulator (SAS) function to generate photovoltaic I-V curves. Offering high power density in a compact 2U form factor, these DC power supplies are especially suitable for high voltage testing up to 1,000 V, motor inverter testing, and solar array testing applications. To maximize solar power efficiency, a solar inverter's MPPT algorithm must be tested under various irradiance conditions. With the optional SAS software application, PVS Series users can easily simulate solar arrays under different weather conditions during a day to validate the effectiveness of the solar inverter. The SAS software allows for a variety of I-V curve input parameters (Voc/Isc/Vmp/Imp/FF/FFv/FFi) along with user-definable irradiance profiles and a custom 1024-point voltage and current table. This software can also monitor and log real-time voltage, current, power, MPPT efficiency, and average MPPT efficiency. Front panel features for the PVS Series include a bright VFD display, protection LED indicators, and numerical keypad with rotary control knob and cursors for setting output levels quickly. Each model provides internal memory storage to save and recall up 100 instrument settings. PVS Series models include comprehensive protection features: overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), overpower (OPP), and over temperature (OTP) protection, along with constant voltage-to-constant current (CV-to-CC) and constant current-to-constant voltage (CC-to-CV) foldback protection modes. All models are backed by a 3-year warranty. Available immediately, the PVS10005 and PVS60085 list at a price of $4,790, the PVS60085MR lists at $3,980, and the SASPVS software lists at $295.

B&K Precision Corporation Releases New 1200 W Multi-Range DC Power Supplies for Automotive and ATE Applications

B&K Precision Corporation announced the expansion of its 9115 Series with the addition of two new multi-range programmable DC power supplies, models 9115-AT and 9116. Like the 9115, the new models deliver full output power of 1200 W in any combination of voltage and current within the rated limits and continue to offer the same great features, but with a few notable differences. The 9115-AT provides unique built-in automotive test functions and the 9116 offers a higher voltage range up to 150 V, making these new models suitable for automotive as well as a variety of benchtop or ATE system applications. The 9115-AT special built-in automotive test functions can simulate common test conditions to ensure reliability of electrical and electronic devices installed in automobiles. Compliant to automotive standards DIN 40839 and ISO 16750-2, these power test waveforms include: motor startup simulation, short voltage drop, reset behavior voltage drop, and engine start routine with cranking. Front panel features from the 9115 carry over to the 9115-AT and 9116, which include a high resolution VFD display, independent voltage and current control knobs, cursors, and a numerical keypad for direct data entry. Both new models also provide internal memory storage to save and recall up to 100 different instrument settings, sequence (list mode) programming, and configurable overvoltage and overpower protection limits. On the rear are standard USBTMC-compliant USB, RS-232, GPIB, and RS-485 interfaces supporting SCPI commands. For easy programming and remote control, the 9115 Series now offers remote control software for front panel emulation, generation and execution of test sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. The application software can also be integrated with NIâ s Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app (available for Android or iOS), allowing users to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions. Available immediately, B&K Precision's 9115-AT and 9116 multi-range programmable DC power supplies are listed at a price of $2,345 and $1,995 respectively.

B&K Precision Corporation Grows XLN System Power Supply Line

B&K Precision Corporation announced three new base models to its XLN Series of programmable DC power supplies. Expanding on the success of the XLN Series, the new models, XLN15010, XLN30052, and XLN60026 offer an even greater range in output voltage - up to 150V, 300 V, and 600 V, respectively. These DC power supplies can deliver a maximum of 1560 W in a compact 1U rackmountable form factor, making them particularly suitable for high voltage and ATE system integration applications. Additionally, these power supplies include a list mode feature with PC software provided that allows users to easily execute programmed test sequences up to 150 steps, internal memory storage to quickly save/recall up to 10 different instrument settings, adjustable voltage and current slew rates, and remote sense terminal. Available immediately, B&K Precision's XLN15010, XLN30052, and XLN60026 list at $2,250 each and –GL models list at $2,600 each.
