N8742A Agilent DC Power Supply


The N8742A is a 3300 W, 600 V, 5.5 A, DC Power Supply from Agilent. Supplies DC Voltage and Current to test, design, and troubleshoot electric and electronic circuits. Applications include Burn In, QA, ATE, Research, Design, and Education to name a few.

Additional Features:

  • Voltage: 600 V
  • Current: 5.5 A
  • Power: 3300 W
  • Small, high density 2 U package
  • Built-in voltage and current measurement
  • Full protection from over-voltage and over-current
  • Flexible AC input voltage options
  • LAN, USB, and GPIB interfaces standard
  • Fully compliant to LXI Class C specification

The Agilent N8742A is a 600 V, 5.5 A, 3300 W, single output power supply in a small 2U package. It offers flexible AC input options, analog/resistance control of output voltage and current, as well as parallel and series connection of multiple supplies to achieve more output current or voltage respectively.

This economical supply offers many system-ready features like multiple standard I/O interfaces to simplify and accelerate test-system development for R&D, design validation, and manufacturing engineers in the aerospace/defense, automotive, component and communications industries.

The N8742A provides up to 3300 W in a small space-saving 2 U-high, 19- inch-wide package. Its air vents are in the front and rear (not on the top or bottom), so you can stack other instruments directly above or below it to save valuable rack space.

Easy front-panel operation
You can quickly and easily operate the power supply with its rotary knobs and buttons. Using the front panel controls, you can make coarse or fine adjustments of output voltage and current, protection settings, and set power-on states (last setting memory or factory default setting). The output voltage and current are displayed simultaneously, and LED indicators show power supply status and operating modes. You can lock the front panel controls to protect against accidental power-supply parameter changes.

Extensive device protection
To safeguard your device from damage, the N8700 Series power supplies provide over-temperature, over-current and over-voltage protection (OVP) to shut down the power supply output when a fault condition occurs. They also offer an undervoltage limit (UVL) that prevents adjustment of the output voltage below a certain limit. The combination of UVL and OVP capabilities lets you create a protection window for sensitive load circuitry.

Simplify system connections
The N8700 Series power supplies comes standard with GPIB, Ethernet/LAN, and USB 2.0 interfaces giving you the flexibility to use your I/O interface of choice today and safeguard your test setup for the future. The N8700 is fully compliant with the LXI Class C specification.

Remote access and control
The built-in Web server provides remote access and control of the instrument via a standard browser such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox®. This control goes above and beyond the LXI specification, giving users the ability to monitor and control the instrument from anywhere. Using the Web browser, you can set up, monitor and operate the N8700 remotely.

Easy system integration and configuration
To simplify system development, the N8700 comes standard with IVI-COM drivers. The N8700 supports the easy-to-use SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments).

Flexible configuration: connect multiple units in parallel or series
Should you need greater output power, the N8700 series power supplies give you the flexibility to connect in parallel up to four identical units (same model number) for greater output current or connect two identical units (same model number) in series for greater output voltage.

Analog programming and monitoring
The output voltage and current can be programmed from zero to full scale by either an analog voltage 0 to 5 V or 0 to 10 V or by resistance of 0 to 5 kΩ or 0 to 10 kΩ.

Flexible AC input voltage options
The N8700 models offer flexible AC input voltage options. Every N8700 model can be purchased with either a 208 V 3-phase or 400 V 3-phase voltage input option. The 3.3 kW models have the additional option of a 230 V single-phase AC input voltage. Choose the one that best fits your operating environment. They also provide power factor correction.

Rack mounting
The rack mount ears and handles are provided standard with every unit. In addition, the N5740A rack mount slide kit makes it easy to integrate an N8700 into a test rack by providing all the necessary hardware to rack mount an N8700 series power supply in only 2 U of rack space. The N5740A rack mount slide kit is the same kit used with the N5700 series.
