PVS Series – High Power DC Power Supplies


The PVS10005, PVS60085, and PVS60085MR programmable DC power supplies offer clean output power up to 5.1 kW, excellent regulation, and fast transient response time characteristics in an industry-leading 2U package. These power supplies provide many useful features such as high-programming resolution, multiple remote interfaces for test systems, and a built-in SAS (solar array simulator) function to generate PV (photovoltaic) I-V curves.

The PVS Series is well suited for both bench use and ATE systems integration, R&D, design verification, production test, and high voltage testing. In particular, the low-noise characteristic of the PVS Series makes these instruments ideal for motor inverter testing. When operated with the optional SAS software, these power supplies can be used for solar array testing applications.
