Multi-Range Programmable Switching D.C. Power Supply

The PSW-Series is a single-output multi-range programmable switching DC Power Supply covering a power range up to 1080W. This series of products include fifteen models with the combination of 30V, 80V, 160V, 250V, and 800V rated voltages and 360W, 720W and 1080W maximum output powers. The multi-range feature allows the flexible and efficient configuration of voltage and current within the rated power range. As the PSW-Series can be connected in series for maximum 2 units or in parallel for maximum 3 units, the capability of connecting multiple PSW units for higher voltage or higher current output provides a broad coverage of applications. With the flexibility of multi-range power utilization and series/parallel connection, the PSW Series significantly reduces the user’s investment for various power supply products to accommodate the projects with different power requirements.

The CV/CC priority selection of the PSW-Series is a very useful feature for DUT protection. The conventional power supply normally operates under CV mode when the power output is turned on. This could bring a high inrush current to the capacitive load or current-intensive load at the power output-on stage. Taking the I-V curve verification of LED as an example, it becomes a very challenging task to perform this measurement using a conventional power supply. With LED connected to a power supply under CV mode as the initial setting, when the power output is turned on and the voltage rises to the LED forward voltage, the current will suddenly peak up and exceed the preset value of current limit. Upon detecting this high current, the power supply starts the transition from CV mode to CC mode. Though the current becomes stable after the CC mode is activated, the current spike occurred at the CV and CC crossover point may possibly damage the DUT. At the power output-on stage, the PSW-Series is able to run under CC priority to limit the current spike occurred at the threshold voltage and therefore protect DUT from the inrush current damage.

The adjustable slew rate of the PSW-Series allows user to set for either output voltage or output current a specific rise time at the low to high level transition, and a specific fall time at the high to low level transition. This facilitates the characteristic verification of a DUT during voltage or current level changes with controllable slew rates. The manufacturing tests of lighting device or large capacitor during power output-on are mostly associated with the occurrence of high surge current, which can greatly reduce the life time of the DUT. To prevent inrush current from damaging current-intensive devices, a smooth and slow voltage transition during power on-off can significantly reduce the spike current and protect the device from high current damage.

The OVP and OCP are provided with the PSW-Series. Both OVP and OCP levels can be selected, with default level set at 110%, of the rated voltage/current of the power supply. When any of the protection level is tripped, the power output will be switched off to protect the DUT. The PSW-Series provides USB Host/Device and LAN interfaces as standard and GPIB-USB adaptor as optional. The LabView driver and the Data Logging PC software are supported on all the available interfaces. An analog control/monitoring connector is also available on the rear panel for external control of power On/Off and external monitoring of power output Voltage and Current.
PSW Series Features

Multi-Range Operation
PSW 30V Series Operating Area
PSW 80V Series Operating Area
PSW 160V Series Operating Area
When the power supply is configured that the total output (Current x Voltage output) is less than the rated power output, it functions as a typical Constant Current (C.C) and Constant Voltage (C.V) power supply.

However, when the power supply is configured such that the total output power (Current x Voltage Output) exceeds the rated power output, the effective output is actually limited to the operation area of the unit.

C.V / C.C Priority Selection
The Inrush Current and Surge Voltage occur at LED Forward Voltage(Vf )Under C.V Priority
The CC Priority Feature Effectively Limits the Occurrence of Inrush Current and Surge Voltage when the Supplied Voltage Rises to the LED Forward Voltage
V-I Characteristic of Diode
Using GDS-3354 DSO to Test LED Operation Under C.V Priority and C.C Priority Respectively
The PSW-Series provides C.C Mode and C.V Mode to fit various applications in the general purpose market. To get into critical application niches, however, the power supply needs to provide advanced features to meet the specific requirements. The C.C and C.V Priority Selection enable the power supply to run under C.C priority, rather than normal CV priority, at the output-on stage.

Adjustable Slew Rate
The Adjustable Rise Time of the PSW-Series
The PSW-Series has adjustable slew rates for the level transition of both Current and Voltage. This gives the PSW-Series power supply the ability to set specific rise time and fall time of the Voltage and Current drawn from the power supply to verify DUT performance during the Voltage / Current level transition. The feature also provides the benefit to slow down the voltage transition at the power output-on to protect DUT from inrush current damage. This is especially useful for the test of heavy current- drawn devices like capacitors.

Bleeder Control
PSW-Series Built-in Bleed Resistor
The PSW-Series employs a bleed resistor in parallel with the output terminal. Bleed resistor is designed to dispatch the power from the power supply filter capacitors when power is turned off and the load is disconnected. Without a bleed resistor, power terminal may remain charged on the filter capacitors for some time and be potentially hazardous. In addition, bleed resistor also allows for smoother voltage regulation of the power supply as the bleed resistor acts as a minimum voltage load. The bleed resistance can be turned on or off using the configuration setting.

Output ON / OFF Delay
The Example of Output On/Off Delay Control Among Multiple Outputs of the PSW Units
The output On/Off delay feature enables the setting of a specific time delay for output on after the power supply output is turned on, and a specific time delay for output off after the power supply output is turned off. When multiple PSW units are used, the On/Off delay time of each unit can be set respectively referring to fix time points. This multiple-output control can be done through the Analog Control terminal at the rear panel or through the PC programming with standard commands.

Various Interfaces Support And Extended Terminal Box
Rear Panel for PSW-Series
GUG-001 GPIB to USB Adapter
GET-001 Extended Terminal
The PSW-Series provides USB Host port in the front panel for easy access of stored data, such as test script program. In the rear panel, a USB Device port is available for remote control or I & V data logging of power output through a PC controller. The LAN interface, which meets DHCP standard, is provided as a standard feature of the PSW-Series for system communications and ATE applications. An Extender Terminal box (P/N: GET-001) is provided as optional accessory to extend the power output form the rear panel to the front side. This extender terminal gives R&D or QC engineers convenience to do the jobs without frequently reaching the output terminal at the rear side of the PSW-Series.

External Analog Remote Control

On the rear panel of the PSW-Series power supply, a 26-pin Analog Control connector is available to perform lots of remote control and monitoring functions. The output voltage and current can be set using external voltage or resistance. The power supply output on/off and main power shut-down can also be controlled using external switches. This Analog Control Connector is complied with the Mil 26 pin connector (OMRON XG4 IDC plug) standard.

Using the Rack Mount Kit
The Rack Mount Kit of the PSW-Series supports both EIA and JIS standards. A standard rack can accommodate 6 units of type I (360W Output Power) models, or 3 units of type II (720W Output Power) models, or 2 units of type III (1080W Output Power) models. The Rack Mount Kits for EIA standard (P/N: GRA-410-E) and for JIS standard (P/N: GRA-410-J) are provided as optional accessories for the PSW-Series.
