B&K Precision introduces the redesigned 9170B/9180B Series of Programmable Dual Range DC Power Supplies

Posted by Advantage Test on

B&K Precision introduces the redesigned 9170B/9180B Series of Programmable Dual Range DC Power Supplies. The new series contains 9 single and dual channel models, each with a unique dual range design that is capable of delivering clean, stable and precise output power up to 210W. Features such as exceptionally low ripple and noise, a low temperature coefficient, excellent regulation, fast transient response time characteristics and significantly improved command response time make these power supplies ideal for ATE applications. Major benefits versus the existing 9170/9180 Series include:

  • Faster Command Processing Time: 9170B/9180B Series models can achieve command processing times of less than 10 ms, which greatly reduces overall test time.  Compared to the closest competition, the E363xA/E364xA Series from Keysight, this series' command processing time is significantly faster, e.g. 10 times faster than the E363xA series.
  • Lower Prices: With prices starting at only $945, the 9170B/9180B Series is an even better value, offering reliable power at prices that are impossible to beat. 

The power supplies also feature a full numerical keypad for convenient data entry and front panel operation, LED test modes, 2 modular interface card slots, automatic range selection and an optional 8-bit bidirectional digital I/O interface; all of which are features normally not included on power sources in this range.  Also offered with this series is a SCPI IEEE488.2 compliant USB standard interface. RS-232, RS-485, GPIB and LAN interfaces are optional via a unique modular interface concept that allows users to install interface cards at the time of purchase or later when needed. The LAN interface includes a built-in web server that allows users to configure, control, or monitor basic power supply settings.
