AMETEK Programmable Power has again expanded its popular Asterion® power supply platform. This time with the addition of programmable, high-performance DC power supplies.

The Sorensen Asterion DC Series sets a new standard for power density by offering rated output voltages in 40 V and 60 V for 1.7 kW, 3.4 kW and 5.0 kW power levels. The new DC series features two types of product lines: fixed range and autoranging. Fixed range supplies are economical, traditional rectangular wave output power supplies with all the enhanced operation advantages standard with the Asterion platform. Autoranging features expanded current and voltage range at the full output power level, enabling the ability to satisfy a wider testing need without the purchase of additional models.

Operators can control the supply from an intuitive front panel touchscreen or remotely via LXI Ethernet, USB and RS-232 standard control interfaces, as well as an optional GPIB control interface for legacy applications. Additionally the Asterion DC Series features:

  • An intuitive front panel touchscreen interface and maultilanguage display ensuring exceptional ease of use.
  • Auto-paralleling capability to support operating multiple units in parallel to increase the total output power level
  • A form factor just 1U (44.45mm/1.75in) high, so rack space requirements are minimal.

The Asterion DC Series is optimized for use in testing today’s complex electronics applications which require low-profile, lightweight power supplies with high-power density.
