AMETEK Programmable Power recently added the new Sorensen SG 500V to its Sorensen SG Series high-power DC power supply line. The company's latest device can supply up to 500V DC for such applications as driving amplifiers, and testing inverters, batteries and power steering pumps used in electric vehicle/hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEV)

The new 500V DC model of SG Series power supplies can provide up to 15kW in a 3U package and 30kW in a 6U package. Users also can select from 5kW, 10kW, 20kW, 25kW and 30kW models. The Sorensen SG Series also offers fast voltage and current slew rates, exceptional load transient response, and low RMS ripple and noise.

The complete SG Series includes a 3U and 6U package configuration with a variety of output and power configurations that allow the user to purchase just the right performance needed for the job. Combinations of these chassis can then be easily paralleled to achieve power levels up to 150kW.

All of the models in the SG Series are available with either Sorensen General-purpose Intelligent (SGI) control or Sorensen General-purpose Analog (SGA) control. Units with SGI control combine on-board intelligent controls with the outstanding power electronics common to all SG Series supplies. These controls enable sophisticated sequencing, constant power mode and save/recall of common setups, making the SGI-capable unit ideal for repetitive testing using complex or compliance waveforms. The unit features an eight-language, vacuum fluorescent graphical display, context sensitive "soft" keys, and simplified front panel keyboard programming. Units with SGI control come with a standard RS-232C port. GPIB/IEEE 488.2 and LXI Ethernet ports are optional features.

Units with SGA control are designed for users who require simple front panel analogue controls or external control. They have the same high- performance power electronics as the SGI and provide essential features such as 10-turn potentiometers for setting voltage and current, and 3? digit LED readout with front panel over-voltage protection (OVP) preview/adjustment and reset. Units with SGA control come standard with remote analogue control. They can be fitted with an RS-232C port, a GPIB/IEEE 488.2, and an LXI Ethernet port as optional features.
