November 26, 2013. Magna-Power Electronics announced the immediate expansion of its XR Series product line, now offering models at 2 kV, 4 kV, 6 kV, 8 kV, and 10 kV at 2 kW, 4 kW, 6 kW, and 8 kW in a 2U rack-mount package. The XR Series, validated at customer sites worldwide as an advanced reliable programmable DC supply since its initial release in 2009, enters its fourth generation coinciding with the new high-voltage models' release. The product line delivers ±0.075% programming accuracy, and the high-voltage models offer ≤ 0.15% RMS output voltage ripple. The units are offered with either the positive or negative output terminal grounded, specified by the customer at time order.
Building upon the established product line, the new high voltage models allow Magna-Power Electronics' robust current-fed power processing to address new markets. The new models address requirements in ion-beam deposition, photovoltaic manufacturing, ion implantation, capacitor charging, ATE systems, powering specialized lasers, and insulator testing, among a variety of OEM and laboratory applications. The new models use the same high frequency IGBT-based switch-mode topology as the other XR Series models.
All Magna-Power Electronics power supplies models come standard with front-panel control, 37-pin isolated analog-digital I/O for comprehensive remote capability, and an RS-232 computer programming interface. For computer communications, Remote Interface Software is provided, along with Magna-Power Electronics' IVI Driver, enabling programming from a variety of environments, including NI LabVIEW and Microsoft Visual Studio. In addition, an included SCPI command set simplifies the product’s advanced programming capabilities. Communication options include LXI TCP/IP Ethernet Interface (+LXI), IEEE-488 GPIB Interface (+GPIB), and USB Edgeport (+USB). All XR Series units are available with 3-phase input, with options ranging from 208 VAC up to 480 VAC, while a 1-phase 208/240-VAC input option is available for 2-kW models.
The new models are manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Flemington, NJ, and are available for order immediately.
