The California Instruments L-Series’ small size provides more power per inch than most other AC supplies. Highly efficient, these products dissipate less heat than previous generation systems and allow up to an additional 10 % output power. With a programmable controller, L-Series models provide the most comprehensive set of programmable functions in the industry. Automatic remote calibration and comprehensive self-tests simplify maintainability.

All L Series units are completely self-contained. Control is through an embedded oscillator, factory configured to your specific requirements. Output parameters are controlled via the front panel or the IEEE-488 bus. Bus programming, standard with -P, -PT and HGA controllers, allows programming and measurement function readback compatible with a number of other standards including VXI, MXI and RS232 via recommended translators. To simplify programming, the standard unit supports both Abbreviated Plain English programming and an ATLAS-based control language.
