TDK0312With "Z +" brings TDK-Lambda a new series of programmable laboratory power supplies on the market, which has been designed with high efficiency in 2 HE format for a wide variety of ATE and OEM applications. It is suitable for example for use in test and measurement applications, for semiconductor burn-in, component testing, and for the supply of laser diodes, heating devices, RF amplifiers and electromagnets. The power supplies can be operated as a table top or in a rack.

The first unit in the series is the Z + 400 with 400 W output power at output voltages up to 100 Vdc and output currents up to 75 A; 200 with other devices, and 600 800 W follow in the same unit size in the coming months. The Z + 400 is a full third smaller and 40% lighter than the previous generation ZUP and other similar devices, providing 50% more power density. The standard models of the Z +-series are only 70 mm wide and will fit up to 6 power supplies side by side in a 19 "rack. For use as a desktop device options such as front lab jacks and double housing.

Thanks to extensive front operation, the power supplies are easy to handle. The Z + power supplies include a generator for any function curves, which can store up to six pre-programmed functions. They also offer a fast command processing and provide sequencing output and two programmable output pins can be controlled, for example on the external insulation relay.

All models of the Z + 400 Series can operate as constant current or constant voltage source. You have a wide range input (85 265-VAC) with active power factor correction, variable speed fan, and comprehensive safety features, including an adjustable by the user safe-start and auto-restart function. Furthermore, all Z + 400 power supplies via USB, RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces. The built-in analog remote control and monitoring using either 0 5-V or 0 10-V control voltage. Other digital and isolated interfaces are optional: The GPIB interface complies with IEEE 488.2 SCPI and is multi-drop capability; drivers for LabVIEW and LabWindows are available. The optional isolated analog control and monitoring is done via 0 5-V, 0 10-V or-4 20 mA control signals. A LAN network interface according to LXI-C is available.
