The BK Precision 9115-AT model can replace several supplies on your bench or in your rack. Unlike conventional supplies with fixed output ratings, these multi-range power supplies automatically recalculate voltage and current limits for each setting, providing full output power in any Volt/Amp combination within the rated voltage and current limits.
For benchtop applications, this series provides a numerical keypad for direct data entry along with convenient cursors and analog style knobs to quickly make incremental voltage or current changes. System integrators benefit from the standard USB (USBTMC-compliant), RS-232, GPIB, and RS-485 interfaces supporting SCPI commands.
The BK Precision 9115-AT provides automotive power test waveforms compliant to DIN 40839 and ISO 16750-2 standards that can simulate common test conditions for electrical and electronic devices installed in automobiles.
Model 9115-AT Automotive Test Functions
In order to ensure electronic systems used in a vehicle are able to function in an automotive environment, automotive component manufacturers test electronic modules to industry standards. The 9115-AT provides built-in simulations compliant to these automotive test standards to help automate and speed up development time.
DIN 40839 (ISO 7637)
This standard insures EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) in road vehicles by injection of supply line transients. The 9115-AT can output a 12 V or 24 V system voltage sequence, which simulates the behavior in supply voltage reduction caused by an engine starter motor circuits.
This standard applies to electric and electronic systems/components for vehicles. It describes the potential environmental conditions and specifies tests and requirements recommended for the specific mounting location on/in the vehicle. These test simulations include measurement of discontinuities in supply voltage, voltage drops, tests applicable to equipment with reset functions, and tests to insure modules do not malfunction during an engine start routine with cranking.
The 9115-AT can replace multiple supplies on your bench or in your rack. Unlike conventional power supplies with fixed output ratings, the 9115-AT automatically recalculates voltage/current limits for each setting. The 9115-AT provides 1200W output power in any Volt/Amp combination within the rated voltage (80V) and current (60A) limits. By providing greatly expanded choices of maximum power Volt/Amp combinations, users can cut down on the number of power supplies required and free up valuable bench space.
For benchtop applications, this series provides a numerical keypad for direct data entry along with convenient cursors and analog style knobs to quickly make incremental voltage or current changes. System integrators benefit from the standard USB (USBTMC-compliant), RS-232, GPIB, RS-485, and LAN (9117 only) interfaces supporting SCPI commands. Alternatively, users can control the power supply, execute test sequences or log measurements using the provided PC software application. This software also integrates with Data Dashboard for LabVIEW apps enabling iOS, Android or Windows 8 compatible tablets or smart phones to remotely monitor select measurement indicators.
The multi-ranging feature of the 9115 Series offers exceptional flexibility by providing any combination of the rated voltage and current up to the maximum output power of the supply. These wide ranges of voltage and current allow users to replace multiple supplies on a bench or system rack.
The numeric keypad, rotary knobs, and cursors provide an easy way to set output levels quickly and precisely. With a push of a button, the display can be conveniently toggled between set and measured voltage and current values.
Additionally, the power supplies provide internal memory for storage of up to 100 different instrument settings that can be set and recalled via both the front panel and remote interfaces.
Programmable voltage rise/fall times
The power supply is capable of programming the slope of the output voltage during changes between voltage settings by allowing users to set the rising and falling edge times of the voltage.
External analog control interface
The power supply output voltage and current can be controlled from zero to full range by either external DC voltage sources (0-5 V or 0- 10 V) or resistances (0-5 k Ω or 0-10 k Ω). The DB25 analog control interface also provides a source for monitoring the voltage and current output.
More than one unit of the same power supply model can be connected in parallel or series connection to increase the overall current or voltage output respectively. Using the RS-485 interface, the power supplies can operate in master/slave mode. In this mode, the master unit can control all other power supplies connected in parallel or series. Additionally, the RS-485 interface can be used for multi-unit control of up to 31 daisy chained units.
PC software is provided for front panel emulation, generating and executing test sequences or logging measurement data without the need to write source code.
Additionally, this application software integrates with NI Data Dashboard for LabVIEW apps which allows users to create a custom dashboard on a tablet computer or smart phone to remotely monitor 9115 Series power supplies via this PC software.
- Remote monitoring on iOS, Android or Windows 8 compatible tablets or smart phones via NI Data Dashboard for LabVIEW apps Quickly develop a custom dashboard consisting of one (smart phone) or several (tablet) indicators, charts or gauges to monitor your power supply
- Log voltage, current and power values as well as time stamp, CV/CC and output status
- Save and load list files to/from the power supply’s internal memory
